I spent the day adding tones with acrylics today.
Will be moving on to doing the cover for the collected comic book next.
I travelled over to Wormit this morning to take photos of the Tay Bridge, specifically looking to get pictures which included the stumps of the old collapsed bridge.
When I got back I pencilled the third and final panel, and then inked all of it.
I like the line drawings of the crash panel. I scanned that drawing and might do something with it. I'll be adding the watercolour black and white tones to the whole thing tomorrow.
This is Marc Casilli's latest issue of Liget, published by Incompleta.
One of the stories inside is a variation on the Harvey Pekar name story. This one is a kind of Marc Casilli face story, in which he discusses all the people and characters he's been compared to.
For the front cover, Marc has lots of these character faces in a Guess Who? style game.
On the back, he's asked different artists to draw pictures of his actual face, including Dominic Archer, Edson Bortolotte, Paula Cruz, Livia Fuhrmann, Joao B. Godoi, Debora Kamogawa, Kaina Lacerda, Mayara Lista, Isabelle Ribeiro, Hendric Sueit, and Gary Walsh.
I drew one too. It's in the middle at the front.
More details on Marc's comics can be found here.
I, and my That Comic Smell buddies, appear on the latest episode of The Lakes Comic Art Festival Podcast.
Have a listen here.
From the website:
"It’s a review juggernaut of an episode in which I brought in the rest of the TCS crew to join me. So it’s just over 2 hours long.
We review everything from the latest Avery Hill Publishing releases, a Tribute Press title, Russel Mark Olson Art books & more. To V for Vendetta, Buck Rogers, Firepower and our personal reads. There is also chat on That Comics Smell’s recent comic anthology announcement and some of our personal projects.
Hope they just keep the place tidy before we get back! Unruly boys!
