comicbooksfrombrazil:

In 2013, a Mauricio de Souza Productions released a new series of Brazil´s most famous comic book: Monica. The idea was to let new artists interpret the characters with creative freedom, and direct them to an older audience. The Graphic MSP series is an absolute success, both in sales and in quality of work, and the books have been sold in Germany, France, Italy and Spain. These are some pages of the fouth book, Piteco – Inga, by Shiko.image

So my friend Paulo Cecconi has set up a tumblr to showcase the art of Brazilian comic artists, and he’s opening with the art from OGN “Piteco - Ingá”, by Chico Shiko, whose work is ah-mazing. Take a look, you’ll be glad you did!

And here we go with the next Wonder Woman!

And here we go with the next Wonder Woman!

This is Mrs. Janete. She a really, really sweet old lady who sells pies and snack foods and coffee at my work. She’s like 4’ 11” (hope I did the conversion right), must be around 75 years old and a joy to talk to. Plus, she makes a mean sardine pie.
Drew this with Tombo markers today at work, when I had a few minutes to kill.

Finally finished!This is inspired by Wonder Woman circa Sensation Comics #6 (1942), when she got the magic lasso and had already ditched the skirt for the shorts.

FINALLY starting on the colors.

Was killing some time at work in the sketchbook, and this came out. The first sketch is a roster for the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters if Xavier had managed to convince Magneto that Xavier’s way was better for the mutants. In my mind, those are the teachers and students who’d make up the first class at Xavier’s.

The second spun almost inevitably from the first, when I noticed that Jean, Wanda and a very young Lorna were the only girls of the Student Body. 

I’ll probably expand on this further.

Done with Tombo markers and coloured pencils.

So for a brief period in the 80s, Carol was pretty much an honorary X-Man. What I thought was neat about that time was the fact that (unless I’m wrong and please correct me if I’m wrong) Carol was the first woman on the team other than Ororo since Jean’s death in the Dark Phoenix arc (actually Kitty joins the team before Carol but she’s 13 and Ororo pretty much adopts her.) So I kind of always think that she and Storm fostered a great friendship in that time (especially during the Brood Saga!!) and now I’m sort of wishing that Marvel would bring these two together in a miniseries or to guest in each other’s solos or something to be flawless and save the world/universe together because wouldn’t that be super awesome? It would be super awesome.  

greg-pak and kellysue, maybe you could work something out? Pretty please? ;)

"You can tell a lot about a person by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your ipod/itunes media and write down the first 10 songs that play. No skipping. Then pass it on to 10 people."
