#Day18 of my inktober challenge. Tomorrow I will finally catch with the missed post of the last couple of days.
In this drawing, Mony and I meet the hermit Bernardino atop a hill we walk a dangerous path to arrive to. Welcoming. Loving. Eccentric. Scholar. He tell us we are messengers, carrying a message of love wherever we go. Mony and I reflect on what message we should carry on our backpacks, if we are messengers. We agree that peace in the world begins within. Mony believes in empowering people to make changes in their inner lives and immediate world. I care about peace, but ultimately believe we are walking for Love. Neither is prepared to publicly declare we are walking for Love and agree to say we are pilgrims for peace. = = = = = = = =
The challenge continues! This time I have decided to do illustrations of my 5000-km walk for peace from Rome to Jerusalem in 2001-2002 that was the foundation for our award winning book “Walking for Peace, an Inner Journey”. Why I am doing this? Because I am thinking of creating a Graphic Novel of our story and, at the same time, am writing for publication a part of the story that was not included in the first book. What better way to stay focused than dedicating this year’s #Inktober to illustrating these projects?
I will continue drawing and posting one illustration about our journey every day for the whole month of October. That is the challenge.
Stay tuned! <3
This is a pretty special #tbt . I neglected to mention this last year...but not only does SOUL BEAT have an "anniversary", it also happens to be today (Oct. 19). Technically it's "unofficial" because the actual date is impossible to know, but I had to choose SOME date for the 1st anniversary and I remembered creating the story in mid-October 2009. Anyway, plenty of tales for another time! So, as of today...SOUL BEAT is now 8 years old!
I misplaced another image I wanted to share, so today you get something even better...the original full body drawings of Dante and Virgil. It's hard to put into words how much these drawings mean to me. For Virgil, this was literally the first time I drew him, the moment he was created. But for Dante (who has an even EARLIER drawing), this image convinced me that "Dante's Disco Inferno" was something special. THIS was an idea I could get behind. And to think how far these characters and the story has come since then...it really brings a tear to my eye. (Literally, I'm crying right now, lol)
Anyway, thanks again to everyone who supports the story and these characters. To you guys it may not seem like they've been around that long...but for me, I've waited damn near a decade to get here and tell the story of Dante Alfonse and Virgil Morrow. And after all this time failing, waiting, planning, graduating, joining @saturday_am and FINALLY getting this show moving...there's no way we're slowing down now.
(The whole thing doesn't fit so swipe to see name) -EQUILIBRIUM- a graphic novel about a secret space school that enrolls students who are smart/strong enough to leave their families and live in the wonders of the multiverse. Our story follows the main characters nathan, (shown) dan, Otto and Megan. Along with other characters. But when 3 rebels try to invade and release top secret files, a rag tag team sneaks out from the underground school and tries to take down the rebels.
So yeah! That's the basis is the GN. I'm so excited to finally have a name and a real idea down. Tell me what you think!
Pinhead cover art for Epic Comics (#marvel ) first issue of Clive Barker's Hellraiser series. The series ran for 20 issues, four Seasonal Specials, four Book of the Damned Specials, a poster book, Hellraiser III comic adaptation and a crossover with Clive Barker's Nightbreed - also from Epic Comics. A true expansion on the universe, ideas and stories from the series have even been incorporated into the movies and later comic series from #boomstudios
Highly recommended for HR fans. Individual issues are rare, but collected reprints under Boom's label are fairly easy to find. Epic and Checker Books also produced some stunning collected books, but these are also very hard to find now. Most were limited to only a couple thousand upon release. Many came signed by Clive and the various artists, making them even more sought-after.

Another early page preview for this forthcoming comic project that I'm doing with my friend David. It's actually kind of timely given all this talk in the news about sexual harassment. Rape culture, the reality of this kind of violence, these are subjects I want to tackle in these stories. But more on that in the forthcoming months. Visit http://zaverexus.tumblr.com for David's art. #comic#comics#superhero#graphicnovel#graphicnovelart#comicart#comicbook#superheros
Nota Skoob: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Aterrorizante, sinistro, macabro... Não consegui largar essa Hq, as ilustrações são belíssimas, dá pra passar horas olhando cada detalhe, e a história... Queridos, é de arrepiar os cabelos...
Plot: Após um trauma assombroso, uma família se muda para uma pequena cidade confiante em recomeçar... Mas algo verdadeiramente maligno vive na floresta vizinha... Algo secular e faminto...
Foi uma ótima experiência, não leio muito HQs, são poucas as que me pretendem atenção, e essa conseguiu não sair da minha cabeça... Aqui bruxas são algo não humano, são o serne do mal, tudo o que você precisa fugir e se esconder... Seria incrível se essa mitologia fosse melhor desenvolvida... Poderia ter mais 200 pág que leria de boa kkkkk
Meu amigo Dahmer
A darkside não poderia ter escolhido graphic novel melhor para dar início aos seu novo selo de quadrinhos e mangás. Meu amigo Dahmer é um quadrinho totalmente crimescene também
Depois de tudo o que vi e li sobre Dahmer, achei essa graphic novel uma ótima sacada. Esses traços grotesco e figuras feias retrata como uma luva a história.
Backderf reuni aqui lembranças dele, de alguns colegas, vizinhos e faz a gente enxergar quem era Dahmer, uma bomba relógio que apitava alto no ouvido de todos que o rodeavam e ninguém fez nada. Todos com os seus motivos: colegas em puberdade, curtindo seus últimos dias de inresponbilidade, professores que não levavam o trabalho para o pessoal, pais que só queriam resolver os seus próprios problemas.
O quadrinista e colega praticamente nos oferece um álbum escolar. Todos os fatos citados o próprio autor dessa barbárie reconhece e relata em algumas entrevistas que concedeu.
No fim vamos ver um adolescente bem bem esquisito e encarar um homem antes dele decidir se transformar nesse assassino, canibal sádico.
O que realmente se passava na cabeça dele nunca vamos entender.
Haveria um jeito de salvar mentes psicopatas?
Adianta culpar pessoas por abuso e descaso?
Alguma coisa poderia ter o parado?
O que é viver com um desejo insano dentro de si?
Eu gostei bastante e me fez pensar demais qual seria meu posicionamento e forma de tratar se eu tivesse um cara esquisito e que só queria ser o idiota na minha sala de aula. Provavelmente eu tbm iria só querer distância. 💀💜💀
