Throwing ‘em back. 2008-2010.
Hey, people who love comics about what happens when wildlife reclaims abandoned cities! Have I got a treat for you…
My boy Chris Pyrate has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the first issue of his new comic Feral NYC. This is the alternate cover I drew for it. I’ll be drawing a backup, and one of the prizes is a copy of my mini comic Leave This Bright World. I also designed the logo, but I assure you there are plenty of non-Bruzzese reasons to contribute!
I was at Awesome Con in DC this past weekend with the wonderful folks at Art Way Alliance. These are the fictional persons I drew during that time: Spider-Man, Galactus, Thanos, another Spider-Man, and MODOK.
Back in the early 1990’s, when anime was still called “Japanimation” and The Simpsons still featured Phil Hartman, no one could have conceived of the concept of Bartkira. Yet 23 years later, in Neo-Britain, artist Ryan Humphrey gave life to the unimaginable. His pages for the mind-bending crossover comic ignited a fire in the mind of comic artist James Harvey, who proposed the impossible:
Recreate every page of Akira using characters from The Simpsons.
It would take 768 artists, each contributing five pages, to redraw the full six volumes of Katsuhiro Otomo’s masterwork. A monumental group comic project unlike any other inspired working illustrators, comics professionals, and even some who had never drawn a comic in their lives. Now for the first time, the project that some have heralded as the greatest thing to ever happen to the Internet is here to destroy Floating World Comics.
Come to Floating World Comics at 6:00 p.m. on May 1st for the opening of the Bartkira gallery show and meet members of the Bartkira Committee. Floating World will also debut a limited edition book collecting 100 pages from the Bartkira project as well as a full color gallery section.
WHO: Frans Boukas, members of the Bartkira Committee
WHAT: Bartkira book release and art exhibit
WHEN: Thursday May. 1st, 6-10pm
WHERE: Floating World Comics, 400 NW Couch St
Persons of interest! I will be attending this magnificent event, and I hope to see yer mugs there.
(Willya look at that damn poster? Don’t hurt ‘em, Frans!)
BLACK GUNDAM FAN ART! From Alejandro Bruzzese
and remember the password is GOACTION
It’s her brother, guys.
(Quick fan art for E.S. Glenn’s ffffffascinating new webcomic.)
This is a few years old now. It was for an early version of the project I’m currently at work on.
I drew this when I saw the new movie turtle designs. That’s not particularly important, but um… context?
"AAAAAAH! I love everything about this!"
"I loooooooooove the designs!"
"AAAAAGH I love how dense this is!"
"I. LOVE. THIS. PAGE."
Yes! Yes! Yes!
THE RETURN OF NAKED LASER THOR! NOW WITH MORE FENRIR CLOBBERIN’ ACTION!
Hey Humanity! Long time no see. I’ve been all over the place lately, so I needed a tiny break to draw something for myself. A lot of folks loved the original dealie, so I figured it was time to check in on the guy.
p.s.: He sez “Cut the shit!”
The process can be a bit complex at times.
After not coloring another artist’s work for years I’ve been asked to color the mighty Ricardo Venancio's lines for a short comic written by the fantastic Vito Delsante.
Well, it’s Colorist Appreciation Day, and let me tell you - These fuckers are worth the praise. I’m not saying this because I can officially be counted among them now, but because the amount of work that goes into filling these pages is honestly something I wasn’t ready for. Obviously I color my own stuff, but I tend to keep it simple, and as you can see from the unfinished panel above simple just wouldn’t work on Ricardo’s lines. He’s really making me work, and I’ve got a whole ‘nother level of respect for the job as a result.
So let’s appreciate us some colorists, cool?

Folks! This is a sketch for a comic I’ve written, which Liam Byrne is drawing. He designed the character & I’m just sketching him in order to get a feel for him.
I know I’ve been pretty quiet on the Tumblrs lately, but I’m all over the place with the busy. I’ll keep yous up on developments, but you might as well follow me on the Twitters if you want more regular newsy bits.
Aaaaah, fudge! I missed the deadline.
Hey. You. I turned the PROXY blog into the new home of HISTORIETA ZETA ZETA, where I’ll be posting my continuing web comics. Follow that shit.
Here are my completed Bartkira pages. Here are the original pages for comparison.
