THE INSTRUMENT - sketch

As soon as i read "THE INSTRUMENT" written by DENNY O'NEIL, i did search rednecks images.
DENNY wanted a special kind of redneck even if never wrote that word. He described a particular fellow from his stand to his voice... and in this case the LETTERING, which he wanted me to do by hand. I didn't that for a good decade but have a try at a "WILL EISNER STYLE LETTERING" was too good to pass. And i had a blast doing it.


Will Eisner lettering




My type of lettering and the title typographic frenzy...





My bunch of Rednecks









and no redneck would go outside without their famous redcap.
and as soon as i had my favorite redneck casting over,
i jump on the layout part, which is the funniest part of each book.

Atelier des Gueules Cassées - 1











BAGMEN TRAILER DEVIL#1





Having a lot of fun making the trailer for my next graphic novel "LE
STUDIO DES GUEULES CASSÉES" (ANNA COLEMAN'S STUDIO),
i did play with my CRIME STORY named BAGMEN to give him
a proper movie feeling.



Of course THE ROLLING STONE's SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL was just right.

Enjoy.





"FISSA, PAPA..." est disponible.

ATTICA graphic Novel



Yesterday (september 13) was the 46th anniversary of the UPRISING OF ATTICA.
For few months, i've worked (among many others things) on a graphic novel retelling what really happened in ATTICA. The Writer JARED REINMUTH has wrote a screenplay with FRANK -BIG BLACK - SMITH (you can't missed him, it's the BIG MAN "BB" on the famous shot of the ATTICA).

BIG BLACK was an inmate and the head of security during the UPRISING, he was also brutally tortured by the guards and state troopers in the aftermath of the attack. After he finished his time he still had a beef with Govenor Rockefeller and he sued. That trial took almost three decades, but he had the neck of Rockefeller, first, and he ruined his chances of getting elected POTUS.

But the movie was never made. And this great story HAD to be told, and i was asked to make it in flat pictures in a fat book. My job was to make it, as good, or even better than the MUHAMMAD ALI biopic i did with Sybille Titeux De La Croix.

I fell in love for this story, the theme first stroke me, but also the beauty of the words. Why use 10 words when you can use the right one, right away. The script was tight and beautiful. Right now we are almost at the half of this 120 to 130 pages graphic novel and it will be finished before the end of 2017.
We don't have an editor yet, but we are confident in the quality of our book. And this story had to be told. I will show you few pages and post some news about it... on a regular basis.

The title of the book is "BIG BLACK : STAND AT ATTICA"

My email is zeroomstudio[at]gmail[dot]com if you want some infos or more.
>>>> here you have my version of the famous shot 
of the negociation table in the D YARD at ATTICA, 
where the inmates, perfectly organised, 
try to gain some kind of basic human rights for them 
and all the others inmates in United States.






>>>> The first page of our book.








>>>> The famous phrase who resonate in American History.



>>>> BIG BLACK passed away in 2004,
but his life is and will be an example for us all. Respect.

DESPERADOS HOUSEWIVES

DESPERADOS HOUSEWIVES


Histoire : SYBILLE TITEUX
Images : AMAZING AMEZIANE

L’histoire se passe au Mexique en 1911 en fin de dictature de Porfirio Diaz, 
dans le petit village de Tetecala dans la région de Morelos, non loin de Mexico.
Cette famille vit dans une dynamique traditionnelle : les hommes sont machos
et les femmes s’attèlent aux tâches ménagères ainsi qu’à l’éducation des enfants…
mais plus pour très longtemps.

Portées par le vent nouveau de révolution qui approche, les trois sœurs
Delfina, Pandora et Maria prennent les choses en main et décident
de remplacer leurs maris lors de braquages de banques.
Avides de sensations fortes, elles manieront l’art du déguisement,
apprendront à tirer, et trouveront grâce à leurs voisines alibis et cachettes.
Les hommes de la famille ont bien du souci à se faire !
