What is the most valuable piece of artistic advice you have ever received, and from who?
“Dash Shaw once told me to abandon a massive graphic novel I’d been working on for five years, and I did, and it changed my life. You improve so much faster with lots of little short works than one all-consuming project.”

    Cool, thanks for sharing. :-)

    The 2nd image and the illustrate comic where a family evacue an appartment reminds me of some Franco-Belgian comics artists like Hergé (Adventures of Tintin), Tibet (Chick Bill and Ric Hochet), Franquin (Spirou, Gaston Lagaffe), Tillieux (Gil Jordan).

    This was spectacular! Very talented individual. I want to know if he or she ever publishes a comic book. I’d buy it in a heartbeat!
