BLACK HAMMER cover and signing

Recently, I made this exclusive variant cover for Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston's BLACK HAMMER. I had a blast doing this retro looking cover, paying homage to Kevin Maguire's iconic Justice League cover. Here you can see the idea sketch, the pencil stage, inking during two moments, the final scan and the final cover. It changed very little from sketch to final image, and mainly I changed who would have the arms crossed to better reference the Maguire cover.

Doing a Black Hammer logo with letters also similar to the Justice League logo, and adding the tagline on the top, gave this the perfect feel of something from the past of superheroes comics.

I’ll post all our San Diego schedule soon, but I’ll be signing this exclusive edition with Jeff Lemire on Friday, July 21, from 3PM to 4PM, at the Dark Horse booth.

See you there!

Paolo Nutini

Recently, I did this poster for the scottish singer Paolo Nutini's show here in São Paulo. Here at the studio we've been so busy creating new stories that rarely I do anything that's not comic book related anymore. I'm not complaining, because I love comics and I have the chance to do only that, but sometimes you get that itch to do something a little different, related to something else, another world (the music world, the poster world) and it's nice when the itch comes and it coincides with that tiny little amount of free time you save every month just in case you come across an opportunity.
Paolo happens to like my comics, which I think was one of the reasons I was invited to do the poster, and I happen to like his music, which was one of the reasons I wanted to do it.

Back to the comics now.

International Women's Day

On my book, today's like every day. Every day I thank the women in my life for existing and for helping me be a better human being. (some men help, too)
But I did this warm up drawing to celebrate today anyway.

100 years of Will Eisner

Will Eisner would have been 100 years old today. We, like so many others around the big world of comics, were deeply influenced by his work, so we did these drawings in his honor today, to say thanks.
The Spirit is by far Eisner's most famous character. I can’t help but wonder that, if created today, a Spirit of our time (for our time) might have been a woman.

São Paulo-Angoulême connection

Bá and I were working this Saturday when my phoned made its noise for incoming messages. It was a video from Michele, our dear Italian editor at Bao. In fact, not only from him, but also it was from François, our dear French editor at Urban Comics. This weekend, the Festival International de la Bande Dessinée is happening in Angoulême once more, and apparently both our editors met in this cold Saturday to let us know, in our current hot summer day, that they were plotting our future at that very moment.
They were trying to confuse us. Deceive us with smiles. Their eyes betrayed them, and we knew they were up to know good. Europeans and their secrets and all that.

We replied with another video, and we smiled back, and we waved.

They're coming for us.
We know it.
We'll be ready when they come.
But we can enjoy our summer while we wait.

Masks

My art is this mask I wear.
I painted the cover of a new notebook.
A new project begins.
Something exciting.
Different.
