Mr. Campbell speaks

"A legalacsonyabb rendű művészet az, amelyik teljes egészében illusztrációkból áll - az, amelyikről éppen beszélünk [ti. a képregény]."

A teljes hosszúságú és mindent kimerítő interjú Eddie Campbellel itt olvasható.

It's all about Eddie Campbell

whom I regard as the best author in the comics field. I thought it would be a great idea if I collected some of the better reviews, essays and roundtable discussions that others had written about his books. See, I'm too lazy to write a coherent one myself. But the folks over the ocean aren't - in fact I should point it out that comics journalism is an existing field over there. Maybe we should focus on that one more vividly and see that we still need to learn a lot. Anyway, take a look at the following links if you like:

YS webshop


Ezt a rajzot a Yellow Spots együttes webshopjához készítettem, de nem ez a lényeg, hanem hogy szerintem egész jó lett. Egyedüli dilemmám az volt, hogy miként érzékeltessem, hogy a bevásárlókocsi, amit a múmia tol, dög nehéz, szóval azt találtam ki, hogy a lábnyomok legyenek kicsit összevisszák, azaz ne legyen tökéletes a nyomvonal, amit a fickó maga után hagy. Hát nem tudom, hogy sikerült-e ezzel bármit is érzékeltetni, de a lábnyomok minden esetre "hibásak", és ez eléggé bassza a szememet.
