Cyan is the warmest color
As the Daytripper hardcover deluxe edition follow its way to comic stores and bookstores, I’m producing new stories for Vertigo. The first one will be part of the Vertigo Quarterly - Cyan anthology and I wrote the script and did the layouts right after coming back from India, which was an amazing trip and will surely inspire many, many of my stories.
I wrote this script and did thumbnails the same way I used to work before I had to show this early part of the process to editors, so the layouts were very minimal. I posted a picture of one of the pages on Instagram (and around the web) this week and it’s funny to see the many interpretations of what was going on, many of which included the pope and his car.
Last week I also already did the layouts for the first issue of the new volume of Casanova. Half of the issue felt like a Manara comic, the other half felt like a weird silent noir comic. Hopefully you’ll understand when you see the pages.
In between these great projects, I have to find time in March to do my page for the Little Nemo anthology, where you’ll see the first signs of the influence of our trip to India in our work.
Back to the drawing board.
