inktober #5 - Moon Girl

I'm getting tired already. My brain keeps guilting me into getting back to the story I'm pursuing. He's right, my brain.

"I'm surrounded, and yet alone."

Inktober #4 - Moon Girl

These drawings exercise my brain and my hand and my creativity. Maybe I'm spending too much time with them, time I should be spending on any other one of my... my...
I don't know how to call stories that aren't stories yet. I don't want to call them projects (even if that's what I call them when I have to write an email and say I'm already working on too many projects), and I don't want to call them ideas, even if that's what they are. My ideas are much more something that I feel that I want to turn into a sequence of images, to try to prolong this feeling and, perhaps, to make it grow into unexpected interesting moments.
"You hold the key to my heart", I say to her.
She knows.

Inktober #3 - Moon Girl

Another inktober drawing. Another girl, holding a cigarette with one hand, and a piece of paper with the other. Again, an animal stands beside her. All these constants in an attempt to create a connection between the images, a link that my brain always makes to make sense of the random drawings without a story.
I wrote:
"I try to put the pieces together and make sense of what I'm feeling."

Inktober #2 - Moon Girl

"Looking for the wisdom to make the right choices", I wrote that as I finished this first drawing of my inktober series. I then tried to imagine what was written in the piece of paper she's holding, already searching for the backstory every image brings.

BLACK HAMMER cover and signing

Recently, I made this exclusive variant cover for Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston's BLACK HAMMER. I had a blast doing this retro looking cover, paying homage to Kevin Maguire's iconic Justice League cover. Here you can see the idea sketch, the pencil stage, inking during two moments, the final scan and the final cover. It changed very little from sketch to final image, and mainly I changed who would have the arms crossed to better reference the Maguire cover.

Doing a Black Hammer logo with letters also similar to the Justice League logo, and adding the tagline on the top, gave this the perfect feel of something from the past of superheroes comics.

I’ll post all our San Diego schedule soon, but I’ll be signing this exclusive edition with Jeff Lemire on Friday, July 21, from 3PM to 4PM, at the Dark Horse booth.

See you there!

Paolo Nutini

Recently, I did this poster for the scottish singer Paolo Nutini's show here in São Paulo. Here at the studio we've been so busy creating new stories that rarely I do anything that's not comic book related anymore. I'm not complaining, because I love comics and I have the chance to do only that, but sometimes you get that itch to do something a little different, related to something else, another world (the music world, the poster world) and it's nice when the itch comes and it coincides with that tiny little amount of free time you save every month just in case you come across an opportunity.
Paolo happens to like my comics, which I think was one of the reasons I was invited to do the poster, and I happen to like his music, which was one of the reasons I wanted to do it.

Back to the comics now.

International Women's Day

On my book, today's like every day. Every day I thank the women in my life for existing and for helping me be a better human being. (some men help, too)
But I did this warm up drawing to celebrate today anyway.
