Giants and smoking

"...In the world of Giants smoking is a popular thing. Most of them make their own pipes. To have a nice, original pipe is a matter of prestige..."

Nice Photo

This photo was made by John Flesk during the comic convention in Breda a few weeks ago. As far as I am concerned, this is the best process photo of me working on a piece…  If you want to see  more of John’s brilliant photos from Breda, please visit Flesk Publications blog.

Apart from being one of the leading publishers of artbooks in the world, John possesses a variety of other talents, one of them being photography and even filming.  
I suppose many of you already know that John Flesk is the new editor and publisher of already legendary Spectrum annuals.

Stripfestival Breda

A giant from Breda
I recently attended a comic convention in Breda (Stripfestival Breda), the Netherlands. John Flesk from Flesk Publications , together with the guys from De Stripspecialist, Breda’s famous comic book store, invited me to join the Flesk Prime team and share their booth with four brilliant artists from the US: Mark Schultz, Jim Silke, Terry Dodson, and Thomas Yeates.  The convention was very busy and we  spent a few days doing sketches and drawings, talking, laughing, having some excellent dinners together and  enjoying good beer.

Here are two of many sketches I did during the show. Giants and girls, that is what the fans want me to draw these days.  I don’t consider myself to be very good when it comes to drawing girls, but I am always pleased when I can bring another silly giant to life… on the paper of course.
