Two posts in three days? I’m not sure what I’ve been smoking but I sure want some. Bad jokes aside, it’s time for some features! Let’s start off with that comic project I talked about last time:
Let me introduce the comic “Lake”. It’s about a guy named (wait for it): Lake. He wields magical cards of many types, looks like he just came from a Sisters of Mercy concert and is traveling his world trying to hide from his past. Sounds exciting? We’re going for two updates a week, starting today with this pretty cover.
As you might figure from the cover; this comic is the brainchild of Ronald Betfjord. He’s asked me to help him with cleaning, coloring, screentones, translation, dialogue and some general ideas. READ IT!
Let’s move on to the Silver Vein guest art. So, the book might take a bit longer to get done but I received some really nice guest art for the book that I want to show off. It’s a nice chance for a little guest feature that I’ve wanted to do for a while. So here goes:
Yep, squirrels again. Ronald seems to have caught on to one of Ailys’s national pastimes. Chasing small animals with your trusted knife & dog. Ronald has just recently gotten himself a blog but I suspect there’ll be some stuff happening there soon.
Anna Landin – creator of fictional universes involving more characters than people you know and illustrator of amazing & pretty things. She’s recently gotten more into colour with amazing results. Here she’s showing us what Silver Vein would be like if Whisper was actually cute.
Ah, Linus. Every paper he touches turns into an awesome picture. Now a professional illustrator. Damn/bless him.
If there’s one person I wouldn’t want to be trapped in a dark room with, it’s Olovs imagination. This guy manages to make ME scared of my own character. Need I say more? Check out his fantastic webcomic Wayfar and have a look at the amazing short film based on the prologue of Wayfar.
SO, those are the features.
Now that the first volume of Silver Vein is pushed back, there’s plenty of time. Feel left out? Didn’t have time to get it right? Didn’t hear of this ’till now? Keep the art coming, friends, and I’ll put it in the book. Anyway, SPX draws near. I’ll see all of you who are going in a few days!
