If there is someone out there in the cold void of the internet witnessing these years of endless frustration and failure, behold, a new era in Illo Friday, the Manga Studio years ! The Manga Studio 5 I bought is a lot more complex than the Manga Studio 4 that I tried and experimented the last couple of days, so I still have to fiddle with all the options and functions, but it transformed the feeling of the Wacom (only an Intuos, not even a fancy Cintiq) and brush like inking became suddenly so much easier. I don't think this page ever brought me any job, but here I am now, ready to enter the wonderful world of professional overpaid visual communication. We're working on a project right now to be honest. More soon.
On other good news, this week, in book-stores, my 4rth comic book since I was fired exactly 3 years ago, so I have a lot of happy F$ck you to say to people who thought I would never again do anything without them, and an even bigger lots of thank you for my publisher, readers, friends, helping colleagues, and many people that I had the chance to meet along this extraordinary turn of events.
The book is called "Harry Octane 2 - Virage Mystique" and I don't think it will ever be translated in english, unlike the other series I'm working on, and which should be available in english in September.
Enjoy your weekend, I know I will enjoy mine even if the snow is still blocking the mighty english bike in the garage...
