Most of you probably know Udero as the creator of Asterix. Of course I love Asterix (well, I love the albums written by Goscinny. The later albums and especially that last one were rubbish) but I never became a fan of Asterix like I am a fan of Lucky Luke or Franquin.
Still Uderzo is one great artist, did you guys know he also drew the first albums of Michel Tanguy et Laverdure? It's a pretty chauvinistic comic about two French airforce pilots. They were written by Charlier who of course also wrote Blueberry. The artwork by Uderzo is amazing, that guy sure knows how to ink!
BTW don't these pics look a lot better if you can see the old comicbook paper? I should give all of these an old paper texture in photoshop
Do any of you remember JC. Forest ? whom I feel is in a way the essence of the 60's movent in France, he created Barbarella etc....Unfortunately an administrator for one reason or an other will not allow me to post any of the pictures I have ?! I hope that this can be rectified as i believe he has an important part to play in this retrospective, which includes the transition from Herge to .........
Can somebody give me a reason why I cannot post relevant material ?
Hans Kresse is one of the biggest Dutch comic artists. He died quite some time ago but his work is still popular. I don't think that many people outside of Holland know him. Here are some examples of his work. He was a true master who could use any techique from ink to paint.
Where are you posting them from? Certain sites (Blogger, for example,) won't let you use image links from their url's.
Also, check to see if you haven't hit your image cache limit. I know I've run into that one or two times.
So, yeah! This thread has pretty much forced me to open up a new inspiration folder and save all of these wonderful works of art. I think anymore I mention are already well-known by everyone else, so I wanna see what other gems people will bring...
