The Bestiary That Could Be for Light Grey Art Lab’s Message in a Bottle show (January 2013)
I have a soft spot for really cheesy text, and an enduring love to cryptozoology, so this happened. The super lovely Becca Knight ended up purchasing it at the show.
It was a very indulgent project - it’s not something that would really fit my portfolio. So that, plus the fact that I didn’t have much time to do it, made me hesitate about posting it. But it was super fun to do, so who cares.
These are the friendly beasts you can learn about:
Why would you hesitate to post this? It’s seriously amazing, Ricardo! I love everything about it from the silhouette concept, to the typography, to the color palette! JUST, GUH!
.. Honnêtement? J’ai explosé de rire…
… Seriously? Burst out laughting.

Ouais, y’a une raison pour laquelle je bosse comme vendeuse…
I recently received an email from an anonymous fan sharing how she pulled a Hawkeye Initiative themed prank on her CEO to illustrate a problem with some artwork.
My personal compliments to her and her accomplice on a mission well done; they perfectly took the concept of The Hawkeye Initiative one…
You go. All of you! EVERYONE OF YOU! The Idea Giver, the Artist, even the CEO who realisez his error, you are ALL good human being!
Everyone else, go read the complete post! It’s inspiring!
A toutes celles et ceux qui ralent contre le sexisme dans le jeu vidéo, cet article est à lire! allez go go go!
So… while working on the bonus of the book one, I found some old concept art of Eshu and was reminded I messed up the bones pattern on him (to be fair, this is such an headache to remember all his pattern I often forgot to draw half of them) the bones were supposed to be black on white and not white on black, as I draw them in the last few pages.
So guys, I ask it now (before Eshu became a permanent character and I have to correct hudnred of pages): Which version do you like better?
Donc.. heu… En travaillant sur les bonus du livre 1, j’ai retrouvé les vieux concept art d’Eshu et je me suis aperçue que j’avais foiré le motif d’ossement sur lui. (bon, c’est tellement hardos à dessiner que j’en oublie la moitié à chaque fois aussi). Les os étaient sensés être noir sur fond blanc et pas blanc sur fond noir, comme je l’ai fait dans les dernières pages.
Du coup les gens, je vous demande maitnenant (avant qu’Eshu devienne un perso permanent et que je doive corriger des centaines de pages): Vous préférez quelle version?
Frog and Rabbit Dancers (personal piece)
Much of this was inspired by a fusion of masks, asian culture & street dancing. The bunny’s mostly punk, but the frog is based loosely on a Balinese frog dancer.
