Fritz: Pirates! (Chili Green)

When I get out of my deadlines I'll post the rough sketches of this... BTW, I didn't make it to San Diego, so, how was it this year?

By the by, have you seen the Alice In Wonderland trailer already? The new flic looks drop-dead beautiful... and scarry, too.

What I've forgotten to mention is that Nemoland chief of staff Francesco Malin did this wonderful piece for me. Thank YOU!

Tweeter (ol' warhorse chicken)

*Todfeind: German word for deadly foe

Sorry again for the lack of updates, replies and answers. I'm terribly busy at work in parallel with preparing things for a longer work related stay (and holidays) abroad... happy holidays to everyone!

Unquestionably this very critter is inspired by Warner Bros' Tweety... and a little bit by my Latin teacher back in school.

Red Pencils; Rough Piece of Duck

Update: Here are some older pieces... I really enjoy colouring with red. (Btw, one of my all-time favorite cartoon characters and all-time favorite inspirations is Chuck Jones' Gossamer)

Apropos old, I just made a nice find on a forgotten SD card. The photo shows our hotel room in Montevideo, last year. I worked there on one of those tiny hotel coffee tables and had a terrific view on the Rambla/riverside. The original sketch, here in the foreground, was part of the "Of Critters, Ducks And Dragons" exhibition in Florence, no Luca?


This is just a very fast and rough piece of duck. Sorry for the lack of updates and replies. Right now, it's just because I've not enough time... I wish you a nice weekend!

Happy Independence Day, btw... :)
