What a thrill to introduce a new hardcover edition of Hansel & Gretel! Printed in France in full Franco-Belgian BD size, and limited to 10 COPIES ONLY! Each book is signed and numbered, and features a unique full-page illustration inside.
And much like Willy Wonka’s golden tickets, that’s all there is and all there’s ever going to be. So to claim your copy, head over to the Sunday ink store.
Well, here we are once more with a new Art Giraffe adventure! This week I’ve recreated one of Scotland’s national treasures- The Skating Minister, by Henry Raeburn. Despite its prominence in the National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, the work does have something of a mystery about it.
The painting is, in fact, unsigned and undated. Experts have placed it as early as 1784, and as late as 1795. And while it is attributed to Raeburn (who was known to be a friend of the subject), even that has been called into question in recent years.
Nevertheless, it is a beautiful composition. How unique for an 18th Century painting, to have its subject in motion! The Skating Minister himself, is known to be the Reverend Robert Walker of Edinburgh. A member of the Edinburgh Skating Society, the reverend and his friends would meet on the frozen Duddingston Loch, and zip around a bit.
If you’d like to see some work-in-progress photos, and stay up to date with all the Sunday ink news, don’t forget to pop over to the facebook page. There’s more Art Giraffe fun coming very soon!
Hi guys! I’m back safe and sound from my tour of France, promoting the new volume of Entrepreneurz. It was a busy trip, with plenty of cartooning, but I also took the time to do a few sketches along the way. Here are two now!
This first one is from Paris- La Fontaine Medicis, in the famous Luxembourg Gardens. Quite a dramatic setting!
And secondly we have the Place des Jacobins in the beautiful city of Lyon. It was a real pleasure sketching this in the morning sun!
Now that I’m back there are some new projects underway at the Sunday ink studio. So keep an eye on the site, and remember to join us on facebook for all the news and work-in-progress updates!
October is going to be a big month for Sunday ink and Entrepreneurz. Clement and I are launching Volume 2 of Entrepreneurz in Paris, and then taking the book on tour around France. If you aren’t in Paris and would still like to purchase a copy of the new book, internet orders will be available soon.
We’ll also be making an appearance at TEDx Alsace(link in French), so stay tuned for some great stories about that and more. The best way to keep up to date with our adventures is through the Entrepreneurz and Sunday ink facebook pages.
Thanks for visiting Sunday ink! Pip pip!
It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of the first Sunday ink comics anthology, 5-Track Mind & Other Stories. This book showcases the very best short comics featured on Sunday ink over the past three years, plus four original stories exclusive to the anthology.
We have tales of samurai, robots, lovers and cowboys. We have international collaborations with two fine writers, A.C.Galaga (Japan) and Brendan Weiskotten (USA). Our stories range from the surreal to the hilarious, from action-packed to quietly philosophical.
To mark the launch of 5-Track Mind & Other Stories, Sunday ink is offering a limited pre-sale, up until 31st August. Every copy will be signed, and the first twenty orders placed will receive an original sketch in the front page.
You can visit the store to place your order now. All comics will be mailed out with the first delivery from the printers. Pre-ordering ensures your copy will be hot off the presses, and steaming with inky goodness! You can also show your support by sharing this link with your friends.
I put a lot of effort into the art and comics on Sunday ink, so I greatly appreciate your support.
Update: Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered their copy. We are now officially in print, and on sale!!
