The Ducks Who Thought They Were Spirou And Fantasio

This rough cover concept drawing is for something I plan to do one day. Not in terms of a full length comic album nor a graphic novel but in a form of a short story or fun homage to the Franco-Belgian Spirou and Fantasio comics I grew up with. Especially the ones by André Franquin. Apropos Franquin, his collection of black comedy comics - Idées noires (Dark Thoughts) - is, to me, one of those all time "must haves".

The iron boat was quite inspired by those streamline beauties: (BTW, Hans Bacher gave me the idea of using irons as reference material)
