cartooning by ivan brunetti

hadn’t heard of ivan brunetti, though i’d seen his work here and there

his book jumped out at me from ed piskor’s instagram

so good

brunetti’s thoughts so lucid and clear

the introduction alone is fantastic

(so i cartooned it)

update: don’t know why i had the second page (panels 3 & 4) read right to left

confusing – disorienting maybe

i guess it still works though

Work Doodle

Well, I reread the previous post, Hellboy Behind the Scenes Doodles, and it is not up to par. I should delete it, but I’m going to leave it up as a reminder to myself not to post late at night.

So, in today’s post I’m going to keep things short. Here’s a sketch I doodled in Photoshop during the last 15 minutes of my day at work. It’s one of the trees outside the window.

It felt really good to squeeze this drawing in today. I haven’t really been using the Wacom tablet for pure drawing; and I’m kind of marveling at how good it really feels.

Adios.

Hellboy Behind the Scenes Doodles

Hellboy: Behind the Scenes > Hellboy: The Movie. Look of the flick? Fantastic. Perlman and company? Terrific. Abe Sapien? Beautiful. The movie lacked creepiness and subtley. Kronen should have perfectly fit that bill. He should have been in the shadows the whole flick. And when you hear the ticking of the clock, you know that you’ll never see the killing stroke. Since the rules for sequels is bigger and louder, I can’t imagine Hellboy 2 will solve the problems.)

Anyway, here are a couple of doodles I made while watching the BTS last week:

I really like the little guy in the upper right hand corner of the second photo. It was worth a lot of crappy drawings just for him. Weirdly shaped head dudes are ok on the first one.

This latest header image, the monk, is my favorite so far, so I’m going to leave it up.
