I've been pretty busy the last couple of months with a new 'old' graphic novel-project that I started like 4 years ago. It has been dormant for all those years because I wasn't certain if i wanted to finish it or not. I think it was kinda too much for me at that time and I just wasn't up for it because of reasons.
Some people have also been asking and reminding me about the project last year, during the preparations for the Jangton Brothers Retrospective. I pretty much took that as another subtle hint to take the project on again after years of silence.
The first pages I made four years ago have been lying around in my atelier ever since, collecting dust and many stares on blank saturday mornings. Yet, at this point, I actually feel pretty motivated to work on it it and give it the proper ending it deserves. It will be my first graphic novel, my debut, so it's pretty exciting for me!
There will be a short pre-publication of some pages on Pulpdeluxe.be, so keep an eye on it during
the upcoming months.
In other 'old' news:
Back in March and June, I made a couple of new illustrations for Trends-magazine.
The first drawing accompanied an article about 'Vrije Beroepen'/'Free jobs'.
The second drawing accompanied an article about supermarkets and their everlasting discount-wars to attract (more) customers.
Both drawings were quickies to do in between the activities of my teacher and ICT-coordinator-jobs at different schools. The wicked know no rest...
