His posters are awesome! Sadly they are not as common these days since digital poster designs have […]

Free sketching apps for android

Posted on Posted in Illustration

I’ve recently acquired a new tablet computer. To be honest when I bought it, using it for sketching and designing wasn’t my first thought. It’s not a powerful tablet as it’s meant to just watch video, surf the web and handle some simple applications. But since it is a 10,1” screen I thought it could […]

“Peanuts pretty much defines the modern comic strip, so even now it’s hard to see it with fresh eyes. The clean, minimalist drawings, the sarcastic humor, the unflinching emotional honesty, the inner thoughts of a household pet, the serious treatment of children, the wild fantasies, the merchandising on an enormous scale—in countless ways, Schulz blazed […]

My top 8 comics

Posted on Posted in Illustration

Well… This one is a toughie. It’s a top 8 because, while I like reading a lot of comics, I can think of only 8 that are REALLY what I could binge on for days and I don’t like bullshitting people by forcing some entries just to satisfy a number. I’m from Europe and I […]
