Holiday Hijinx

Merry fifth day after Christmas everybody!
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I didn't even realize it's been more than a month.
Every year I draw a Christmas card for my Girlfriend, usually of the pin-up variety. Here's this years offering.

And the study.

In other news I've been informed that the French edition of the Rex Steele book has completed printing, but I'm unsure if it's in stores yet. Have any of you guys and girls seen it on that side of the pond? Just curious.

hey Bill, nothing in stores for now (but I haven't been inbookstores for some times now. It'll be ready for Angoulème for sure, which is the main thing to know. Maybe they'll release it just before, but usually the festival is a great place to make a premiere for such books.

And happy new year, of course!

Bonjour Bill! I just picked up the French Edition of Rex Steele at the Nice branch of Album. It's rather expensive-25 euros when regular bande déssinée cost between 8-10 but the GORGEOUS presentation is worth it & of course the DVD is a very special extra.

My French colleagues are very impressed too-félicitations!

Mel Maduro said...

Dontcha hate when that happens?? Absolutely beautiful work!

Achdé said...

"Belle du Jour" est absolument splendide, du trait jusqu'à la couleur! Un super livre pour apprendre à dessiner des pin up dans un style à la fois sensuel et mignon. Du bel art!
