PLEASE NOTE, the displayed parody artworks of classical cartoon characters are not copies but distinct satiric imitations/caricatures, by exaggerating and transforming the original characters and their related indica (see 'Coat of Smiles') in a way that creates new originals and new meanings, different from the intentions of the originals.

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)

How To Train Your Li'l Dragons, pardon, Students

Daybreak, Campus Urstein
Here are some first impressions of MULAN art director Hans Bacher's visiting professorship at the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg. Yesterday, over 400 students attended Hans' animation talk. What an animation art fest we have here.

Oh, by the by, this rough piece here below shows a nice example that the monster's napper changed a lot in the rough process. I'll try to post the finished piece by Thursday.

Alright, the "Bacher Week" at the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg will start right tomorrow... I've packed all my pencils, paper and smiles and I'm ready to go! I'll try to post some photos of the animation week here shortly...

In order to get attuned properly to this very week, here are two 'Beauty And The Beast' storyboard drawings by Chris Sanders and a story sketch (below) by Glen Keane, all of them coloured by Hans Bacher:

Marine Biologist And Lucky Luke Fan

Well, the picture says it all... BTW(1), lately I had no time to write answers in the comments section. Sorry for that, I will reply as soon as I can. BTW(2), corresponding to my drawing here, Achdé already posted the cover art of the upcoming/latest Lucky Luke comic album on his blog.
