This page is the first in a series of very challenging pages. No big action, no frames, only me trying to act out feelings on paper.
This is a scene of memory’s, and therefore no frames. If I had frames to work with I could rely on showing one state of emotion after the other, without worrying too much about readability. But with no frames I have to act out the scene in a flowing motion. Or that was at least my hopes.
I love this kind of challenge. Because for me at least, it is the most difficult. Drawing emotions is a lot of small hints, movement and expressions, put together to form an overall feeling of emotions. It is the small things that count.
I Think it’s hard to do, and I love it. It’s what fascinates me with people, and those very talented artists who masters it. Need I mention any names? Ok I will. Will Eisner, Craig Thomson, Prado and Dave McKean is just some of the really good ones in my opinion.
A bit of "action" on page 51
Slowly but steady I’m getting closer and closer to the end of my “Lizard”-project. Right now I’m sitting behind my drawing-board and working on the page 54-55 spread.
Almost 25 pages to go now.
Trying to do Eisner-style memory scenes. And I think it’s going ok.
After a quick trip to my lokal comic-pusher, the greate comicshop in the middle of Copenhagen “Fantask”, my to-read pile grew a few inches again.
I’m most exited about reading “french Milk” and the “eccex county” trillogy of witch I only have gotten volumes 1 and 3. I hope to get a hold of volume 2 before I get to it, reading through my reading pile.
Well guys, it has happen. I have gotten a contract with Accent UK for the publication of The Man Of Glass.
So, for the first time in my life, i´m not selfpublihing my comic. I´m very exited about it, and is looking forward to be working with all the nice guys at Accent UK.
Still working my way through the task of coloring my comic, The Man Of Glass. Seems to go smoother now. Think I´m getting the hang of it. I´m now at page 11. And below you can see one of the panels.
I think I will be going through all the pages, and adding som gradients and small details, when they are all done. And maybe colorgrade some off the panels, just to add to the feeling of the pages.
After a little brake from The Man Of Glass, I finally have come around to the coloring. Doing 2-3 pages a week, I have now done the first 6 pages.
I try using a restricted color scheme, to keep the visuals simple.
The Man Of Glass - Boxing in color
About a year ago I began developing a concept for a children’s-comic, together with my son. And now i´m finally in the process of drawing the story. It´s quite a different experience than “The Man Of Glass”, witch was planed, to the last detail. This is a free-form work, Where I just play my way through the story.
Below you can see some of the pages that I have done all ready.
Right now I´m in talks with a UK publisher for the publication of “Glasmanden” (The Man of Glass). It looks good, and I believe it will happen. I will reveal more details in the near future.
In the meantime. Here is the first cover-design for “The Man of Glass”
