This is a page from one of his early books called La Révolte D'Hop-Frog, which sadly has not been translated.
I'm pretty sure I've posted something about Christophe Blain
in the past because he is one of my favorite comic book artists (okay call it graphic novel if you want but they will always be comics to me).
His latest work translated into English is a gem called GUS & HIS GANG
, and I highly recommend it. GUS number 3 has already made it into the offical sellection at the prestigious Angoulême Festival
Other books by Blain that have been published in English are The Speed Abater
and the master piece Isaac The Pirate
To finish this mini-homage to this great artist, Today, I found this great video
illustrated and/or animated by him (Thank you Drawn.ca)
Tomorrow, we'll toast to comics at the opening of the Sequential Show at the Society of Illustrators. Hope to see many of you there.
