Once in a while I try to work in a different material for a project. this time it’s with zinc plates. I don’t have a printing press, although I’m seriously contemplating buying one in the near future. A small one for my workspace. But marks must be made and so now it’s the metal plates that are the finished pieces. I use etching tools and anything that’ll leave a mark. I found that my sharpening stone does some nice scratches. I use a dipping pen to put down acrylic ink.
Here’s the first five pages of Lars Kramhøft and my new comic Hellbent. It’s a Bonnie and Clyde meets The Crow kind of story. It’s a dark, funny and bloody twister of a comic. Imagine a tornado with mangled bodies in it. Hurling body parts around the countryside. Well sort of.
I’m currently drawing page 36 but there’s some pages yet to be drawn in the beginning. We’re trying to do a collaboration with a psychobilly and surf band so there’s more meetings to be had before drawing aforementioned pages. So as page count go I’m around 25 I think. It’s going to be about 100 pages. Right now I’m trying to find a colorist for the book as I have a full plate already so it would be nice to have someone to share the workload and fun with. Besides Lars of course.
More will be revealed as the book progresses.
