Good bye Illo Friday

For some reason I don't recieve the newsletter from Illustration friday with the weekly topic anymore. Probably a good sign that it is maybe time that I move on to a creative challenge that would be more my style and less little girls and happy butterflies for grandma'. Let me know if you know of any.
The primary goal of this space was to try to achieve some modern illustration work with the wacom, a new challenge for me at the time, I was born in 1969 and there hardly was any computers around when I graduated from art school. I cannot say that I managed to find the same freedom of sketch with my wacom that the one I have with pen, brush and paper, but this week, I finished a commercial graphic novel that was almost entirely digitally made, with the help of my co worker Robert Paquet
.
And I have the vanity to think that it doesn't look too bad.


So even if I keep the pen and paper for my personal comic production, more and more of my commercial works are done with the evil wacom. I will try to use this place as my mad scientist laboratory to exerce and experiment.... when I can find some free time.
Thank you for reading this blog through the years, time to move on.
