Oz goes USA!

Hello everybody! I´m really glad (excited!!) to announce the release today of the "Wizard of OZ" book on USA, published by Image:

This is a design of a character from the second original novel of Baum´s Oz, that I did for a kid´s book, a kind of roleplaying game book.

Happy holidays, my friends!

Sweet dreams

Hi! Back from holidays! How are you?...That bad? hum...
Well, well... This is a "brush-test" I did some time ago, directly on Painter. The model was my cat "Manchi": she was sleeping on my legs during the process!!

The 62 pages of the new book are ready to be colored. Here is a sample of some, mixed with storyboard pages, and a fun provisional logo.
Now is time for holidays (for me that means working on another place ,sigh!), so this blog will be really boring during some time.
Have nice holidays everybody, and see you soon!

Self-promotion?No shame?...of course! :)

Have a great new year everybody!:D
Here ,some storyboards from the last book of Oz, the volume 3 that is going to be released this week in France. This part of the process is where I find more fun, as it is where it´s decided almost everything after the script, and you can feel you are "creating" something.
