Have you seen the work of French comics artist Jaques Tardi?
His style may at first glance appear to be sketchy and
rudimentary, but just try and imitate it!
My favourites are his series about the Parisian detective Nestor Burma, where you can really
follow the action street by street. There must be a staggering amount of research, even more
in his 4-volume series about the 1870 Paris Commune ' Le Cri du Peuple'. He's known in
France as 'The master of black and white'- with good reason
Now working on the new series of the return of Ramsey's Raiders, currently on my 39th issue of "Commando" for DCThomson.
I'm also continuing my "prequel" of the original "Dan Dare" for Rod Barzilay's magaszine "Spaceship Away". It's a nice chance to do some colour strip work.
For something completely I'll be serialising a new series written by script and screenwriter Stephen Walsh. Set in London in the early 1950's, this is a full length graphic novel, with a few surprises. Title"London Calling", starring Charlotte Corday of the Sirete. Charlotte may also be appearing in a slightly different form in Rok Comics.
