"Strange things happen
in the darkest nights.

Strange things like
the one that happened to Charlie,
just when he thought everything
and everyone was lost".

Scalped: High Lonesome Part 3

Hello Pulp friends,

I thought to share the process of Scalped page 1 for those of you who enjoy the making-of or who like this book :)
First I do a quick sketch for the page. Once approved I pencil the page on the official board and then ink it. I managed to take a (very poorly made) photo of the inking stage (below).
Hope you enjoy it since I am planning to show another couple of pages (if I get the OK to do so ;))

"Murder Underground" (March 9, 1940)

Murder Underground
"Crime Does Not Pay! The SHadow Knows!!!"
Yeah, it's good to remember that every now and then ;)

Hello Pulp Friends,

you know what happens when you put together an old lady who is not that harmless and innocent as she looks (and who has a passion for nickels and murders ;)), his son who is running quite a shady business, a bunch of rats which are as big as cats, the dirty and rundown hoods close to the river, and the Shadow?
Well, listen to the below episode to find out ;)

Enjoy the show and have a great (pulp) Sunday!

Listen to this Episode

The Ole Spirit

Zorro #14 Front Cover

Hi guys,

This is a little sketch of the Spirit I did on the back of my Chiaroscuro sketchbook as part of a little art trade with the good and talented Evan Shaner (his blog). In return he drew me the holy trinity of Pulp: The SHadow, Green Hornet, and the SPider. 3 vs 1... clearly Evan won this one ;) (good for me in this case ;))
Click on the image to see it with some colors I just put on it this morning.

Zorro: The Sword And The Rose

Zorro #14 Front Cover

Hi guys,

I am sorry about not having any illustrated radio show today, but I am juggling three projects under tight deadlines and the spare time is very little. Hope you all forgive me.

But I didn't want this Sunday go without a little piece of Pulp (just a 5% - I know the Superbowl has taken the remaining 95% of this SUnday ;)) so here are the original washes for my cover to Zorro #14, this month in previews for pre-orders.
And if you click on it, you will see the final color version that went to print.
Hope you guys like it :)
