Extract of my untitled graphic novel debut.

The storyline goes about a disfunctional director that can't seem to finish a moviescene (see spread aboce) under the pressure of a chaotic shooting, actors that go into an emotional blaze and producer executives that keep the director in hostage to his duties.
We follow the kafkaesk journey and escape route of the director with some memorable links to the history of world cinema. Bellville, Hitchcock, Spielberg, Kubrick... you can guess it.
The graphic novel will be available from 2018-2019. It has no publisher yet.

first draft for my debut album. Part of a long stretched out spread inspired by the traditional format ratio of cinema.


Detail from my untitled graphic novel (a debut) which I am working on and which I prolongued a too long time. The storyline goes about the comeback of a fallen director who's struggling to make his last film. Its an excessive hommage to the nature of creating and chaos; always hand in hand together.
