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.
WILD YEARS SERIES

While working on my comic, I will publish every 2-3 weeks an one-page comicseries called 'wild years'. A vital exercise into the lyricism and magical imagery on how to make the other comic more fun, emotional and breathable for me. An untitled cover follows now, working on the first page. Till soon.
