Auch. It´s not 30 degrees anymore in Madrid. What other exciting adventures are we going to live in autumn, other than this not-thrilling raining days? Maybe our water heater is exploding over us again, as it did last autumn. Maybe we need to go back to heat water in a pot as to get a warm shower. Maybe we can get the shower straight from the rain. Or even more adventurous, maybe we need both to pick up rain water and heat them in pots. Well, considering the country economic and politic situation, this kind of autumn adventures might be the best ones we will have. I choose l´eau d´automne.
Why I was not here? I moved. I have lived in the House of Mystery for a while. When I finished reading the 3 first comic books that Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges did of this classic anthology , Mr.53 got me the rest. Square treat. I don´t much enjoy writing critics of books, not to spoil the story. Because, what else could I tell you about their plots or their drawings that you can´t see with your eyes? These 2 guys make me want to spend my days in bed with them. When the art is made by Luca Rossi, Ross Campbell, Sean Murphy, Zachary Baldus, Steve Rolston, Jose Marzan, Jill Thompson or Sam Weber. I want them to keep on working so i can keep on living there.
Well, I hope this is enough excuse for breaking my new year resolution of drawing one hour a day, that I wrote in the clever greeting card I got from a designer friend. Just know that this post is dedicated to him, to Xavi, for still being there (ets gran, catalufos!).
I promised to post a drawing today and so I will. This is what my damn scanner has made to it. I kind of like it though. Going to bed, you´ll see this tomorrow, if you STILL trust me, dear people.
If the answer is yes, hey, I LOVE YOU. Because really, I miss this blog hugely and my intention is to publish something….tomorrow.
