Scott Morse‘s wonderful (believe me I have a preview copy right here) new book Tiger!Tiger!Tiger! is available for preorder on Amazon! I especially like this latest autobiographical tale from Scott. And you know, it’s always good to save on shipping, bundle it with some other title like this or that. Coff coff …

Started to work on bookplates this weekend … Sumo Enrico, Yoga Enrico, all sorts of silly Enricos. Many of you have pre-ordered the Venice Chronicles with the bookplate option (thank you, I hope you will like these), but I think I might have to call them sold out real soon. For now I planning to [...]

Brush pen fun

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

This weekend, inspired by Aya Takano’s work, I had a lot of fun drawing away with a nice Pentel brush pen. I drew a lot of Fios mostly, in the little Muji sketchbook … here’s one of them.

New camera and lense!

Yay! It was about time to replace my defunct Canon. I’m really looking forward to trying out this 50mm lense! And here’s one of the first tests … wonderfully shallow depth of field. One more … this is just too much fun.

Aya Takano exhibit

I’ve been a fan of Aya Takano for while now and I was delighted to find this wonderful link with tons of new work from her.

earlier chronicles

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Not sure how many of you read the other autobiographical comics I did a few years back, but it might be worth mentioning them now, for either first time readers or just as a little prep for the upcoming Venice Chronicles. There’s the one that got it all started, which was a 24 hour comic. [...]

How cute is that? The only slightly disturbing thing is that I just ate a totoro…

drawing joy

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

You know on some days, only some special days, there’s a amazing joy in scribbling, a sense of exciting potential … a feeling that your pencil contains wonderful things and you can’t wait to look around for them on paper … they are all there you just have to dig them out. You know the [...]
