|I'm proud of this one! Digital coloring and airbrushing is so fun!|
|Fan art alert! (I´m a fan of many things as you can see!; ) ) |
But: most of my original stuff is in my two comic blogs...or just waiting to be in zines!: D ZINES!!!!!!! Gotta love them!
I´m a real comic freak, I´ve drawn them a long, long, long time and it´s my calling and the greatest passion of my life. They have been always a strong,inseparable part of my life and over the years it just has grown bigger and bigger. I could honestly say that I wouldn´t be me if I didn´t draw comics or read them. They are a very huge part of my identity and comics is the thing that makes me feel most alive. Yep...I told you I was a comic freak!: D |
Comics and animations that I love:
- Tove Jansson´s Moomin comics (every panel of her comics is a beautiful little masterpiece, anarchistic and warm at the same time plus also it´s still the most original comic strip there is!! Moomins have taught so much to me!)
- Hergé´s Tintin (the style, plots and characters are so marvelous and it´s a comic series I have probably read hundred of times but I still can´t get enough of it!)
- Charles M. Schulz´s Peanuts
- Jeff Smith´s Bone
-Roger Langridge´s Muppet show comics
My other sources of inspirations for my comics are:
- Looney tunes
- Monty Python´s Flying Circus
- Muppets and the people behind them (Muppets can touch our deepest feelings but they are at the same time absolutely funny and crazy!)
-Other Belgian&French comic artists I like are Franquin and Peyo and some of the new Spirou and Fantasio artists!
- The Hitchhiker´s guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (probably my favourite book or at least close to it, the hilarious parody, the verbal fireworks, Marvin, space, the meaning of life...do I need say more?)
- REGULAR SHOW!
I think imagination is underrated! I believe that imagination and humour is the greatest things humankind has! My motto is: "Random is good, good kind of random." (one comic workshop teacher once said that to me)
