Hello Pulp friends,
I hope everyone had a great holiday season and wish you all a wonderful and successful 2009 :)
I wanted to celebrate my 100th post with a strip but work got in the way (even if I haven't abandoned the strip) so I thought what better than the Shadow to celebrate a blog that was inspired by those radio shows?
The above is a commission I recently did for our own friend Ilia: he asked for some action and I gave him a big chase in Little China :) Hope it was worth the wait, Ilia.
I wanted also to beef up this post with a great news: I was lucky enough to be invited to illustrate an issue of Scalped (#27), the critically acclaimed series created by Jason Aaron and R.M.Guera and published by DC Vertigo. I have been fan of this series since day one so you can imagine how excited I am to draw one of the stories written by Jason. For those of you who are not familiar with this title, it's one of the top noir, gritty book out there (the other being Criminal by Brubaker and Phillips). I greatly suggest to hunt down the trades if you guys haven't got on this book already.
I'll make sure to post some preview pages when I can, but right now I hope you enjoy the promo art below.
Cheers to you all and cheers to more Pulp in 2009!
