Etsy store (updated)

I’ve just added some new items for sale on my Etsy store, including Red Hands, my first published graphic novel (it's in French), as well as some recent drawings from the blog. I will also be accepting a limited number of commissions over the next few weeks, so if you are looking for an original drawing, please send me an e-mail to inquire about prices and availability. All drawings are done on A4 bristol board and are shipped flat. Thanks for looking!

A few days ago, Neil Vokes, one of my favorite comic book artists, asked me to draw a pin-up for the soon-to-be-released first volume of the trade paperback series, Eagle: The Original Adventures, which will be reprinting the first 6 issues of the now-legendary black and white comic book series from the late 1980's. One of the (many) things I loved about the original Eagle series was the guest artist pin-up that was featured at the back of each issue, (like Matt Wagner, Marc Hempel, Adam Hughes and many others) so it should come as no surprise that he didn't have to ask twice. Here’s what I came up with:

Rough thumbnail sketch (original size:8cm x 10cm) & first draft on tracing paper

Finished, light-boxed final pencils (drawn in blue pencil) and inks

And the final greyscaled version

Moonstone Books will be publishing the series of trade paperbacks, the first of which is scheduled to hit stores soon. Even though I already own all 23 issues, you can bet I'll be buying the new trades as well.

Thanks to Neil for giving me a chance to draw Eagle; it was a real honor (and a lot of fun).

P.S. For anyone interested in seeing how I draw comics, from sketch to finished page (and just in case you missed it the first time), feel free to click right here.

The Archer & The Giant on

Here is The Archer and the Giant, the second of two stories that appeared in my comic book Duels, published by Treize étrange back in 2000. It's a wordless fable about, well... an archer and a, um... giant. Yeah, I know... coming up with innovative, original titles has always been one of my strong points.

The $100,000 Uppercut on

For the curious and/or bored, I just uploaded my $100,000 Uppercut short story onto the French comic book website The Uppercut was the first of two stories that appeared in my comic book Duels, published by Treize étrange back in 2000. I'm hoping to add more stories onto the website when I can, so feel free to swing by the next time you can't sleep or the boss isn't looking. And for anyone who would like a printed copy of the story (in English) there are still a couple copies left in my Etsy store.
