IF: Wrinkles // Intermission

(Trust me - it sucks at this size)

"Racing at top speed will get your
suit all wrinkled and sweaty."


I am a bit sad to say that this will be the
last post for the next few weeks as I am working on
my first book that is going to be self- published with
other books by a small group of like-minded people.

The working title
is "Velo City" and it´s a no-text, 16 pages story
roughly about high-speed racing, full of exaggeration
and stylization. I am still not sure how it will turn out
or what exactly will happen, I´ll rather let the
ideas grow while developing scenery and
characters for it.

These two samples are a little peek of what
it MIGHT look like in the end; I´m quite
satisfied with the stylistic approach - still pretty
rough and sometimes wonky lines, but overall
a bit slicker and more details than usual.

By the way, all of the sponsor companies are
made up, and it´s highly unlikely you´ll get
every one of my little references ;)

Anyways, so long for now, maybe I´ll throw in
some little progress shots, but don´t expect anything
big in the next few weeks. Yeah, I know, millions
of devoted hardcore readers crying out all at once.

the illustration is great -- and I am glad I looked at the larger size. Good luck with your book project.

Yep, you're right about the large size; those are nice lines. Best wishes for the book project.

I'll miss seeing your great stuff, but it's fantastic that you're doing a book. May it bring you much butter!

I just found your blog through IF, I find your drawings very charming, and the concepts quite original :)

I want to buy a copy of your book! Seriously! Do you take reservations?

I love the look of these two drawings. On one hand it's very technical and metallic but there's still the wackiness left. Love the details -the numbers in the dashboard (or whatever it's called), the stiching in the suit, the zipper.. And it looks very good in black and white. The book is going to be a classic!

Thanks for your comment on my blog, it means a lot that you still read it!
