Frank Espinosa Talks Rocketo

ROCKETO

There’s a good article about Frank Espinosa, creator of the new comic book ROCKETO, at Comic Book Resources. The article includes some of his concept art for the book. I found out about ROCKETO down in San Diego last month, and thought it’s one of the most visually outstanding comics I’ve seen in a long time. In the article, Espinosa talks about how his animation background has influenced ROCKETO’s style: “Because I come from an animation background, I try to put down the movement and energy. For instance, I try to get the feeling of the hand rather than just drawing a hand. It’s really more about movement than it is actual drawing. I keep a lot out of my drawings. I try to keep it simple.”
