2007 Anthologies

Happy New Year!

I'm going to be a part of some really cool antholgies this year, one of which is the next issue of Meathaus.

Here are a couple of the colored pages from my Hamburgers For One story that I originally posted eons ago in its entirety. I've since removed the rest of the story to avoid spoiling it for those who haven't seen it before.

I'm still toying around with the limited palette and really enjoying the results. Thanks for looking!

does anyone know how to re-size images in this forum? Ideally I would like to re-size stuff and link to a larger version so we can read the whole thing at once.

This is awesometacular. I still love the atmosphere and the pacing, and the color works really well.

Frank, i didn't think color would bring much more to your already great story but i'm glad to say i was wrong. the limited palette and subtle hues work really well. i'm curious to see how the pages set inside the restaurant will look and feel.
and i'm also really looking forward the next issue of Swallow :)

These pages are great. The style is a fine blend of sketchy animated and a loose leaf realistic one. And it reads really well.

Those look really nice. I particularly like the scratchy looking inks. How are you doing that... technical pen?

no techincal pen here

Hey everyone thanks for the positive feedback.

I think the only question was about the pen I use. I this was drawn with a hunt 101 quill pen and india ink on bristol. The panel lines were done with a 2mm rapidograph.

Colours are asounding, man, you've taken an exceptional comic page and raised the bar even higher! I remember reading this in B&W first time round, if you've coloured the whole thing like this it's going to be insanely good!

Nice one, bro, looking forward to seeing it in print!

Cheers!

Lorenzo!

Very very cool Frank. This is awesome work, I love the limited colour palette, it works so well. And being apart of the Meathaus anthology, that's cool! :D
