Shaun Tan is the man

Yeah. Went to see the ALMA-winner speech, and got some stuff signed afterwards - I drew a picture of Shaun Tan's water-buffalo and gave to him, and he made me this. :D I'm ridiculously proud to own this.

Fathoms+random dump

Been drawing Fathoms-stuff lately, to get myself back into the groove before starting the layout-sketches for chapter two. I've got the first three pages or so more or less figured out, but I needed to sort out some details before I get started on the whole thing.

Like the lighthouse Talassa mentions in the first chapter. It shows up in this one, so I needed to know what it looked like. Still haven't figured out the interior yet, but I'll get there.

Dialogue-scrap/brainstorming, as well as main-cast lineup scribble - Talassa, Gale and Khazri (minus his glorious flying whale, of course). Khazri's outfit keeps changing in my scribbles, but I've posted a sort-of final version on dA; the other costume-choices will simply have to go to other Whaleriders. Of which I think there might be a few showing up later.

I've also been watching movies (Kung Fu Panda, Babylon AD, Treasure Planet, etc.,), and scribbled this while watching the first Hellboy-movie. Ron Perlman is the best casting-choice EVER.

SPX - photo-edition!

Found my camera. Alas, I only took a few photos before the doors opened and the horde descended on Saturday morning, but here's the Comic Royale-table:

Note the shiny diploma for Best Fanzine (People's Choice) 2010.

And here's a close-up view of the fanzines:

And, of course, the glory of Comic Royale #5.

Brush-pen sketches, from SPX-weekend.

Drawn sitting outside Bryan Lee O'Malley-signing, waiting for people to return from lunch, waiting for stuff to happen, testing a different brush-pen, etc., etc.

I've been watching Kung Fu Panda. It's been getting it's visuals into my brain, and I can't stop painting trees and bridges in blue, red and orange. My scanner amped up the saturation on this one, but I kind of like it.

Lighting-study for a larger acrylic painting that I hope to paint one day.
