:iconloveorangeplz: Awesome image, Diego, and the layout and text is really beautiful.  It seems like a lot of information needed to be included in this poster, and you did it masterfully :wow:

Thanks, Cathy! I really like trying to incorporate text into an image (and I'm glad you like results by the way), working on the layout for something like this (or when drawing a cover as well) is the part of the process that I enjoy the most (while the actual drawing part, most often than not, seems to me like a huge struggle, despite all the years I've been at it :faint:).

:D Kind of sounds like my drawing process . . . getting the lineart down makes my shoulders tense up clear to my ears, but the coloring fascinates and relaxes me :nod:

Amazing piece. I love the color scheme, motifs, and design. Great looking skull.

Thanks a lot, my friend! A few days before drawing this, I found an old notebook with printed references of skulls (from when I was making a comic around 2006), so that was very useful when it came to draw this poster. :)

:laughing: Me parecio un proyecto divertido, más allá del premio (creo que es un libro y un afiche), pensé que era una buena excusa para sumar una imagen a la galería. :D Se me ocurre que un afiche en el estilo de la portada que diseñaste para el libro de las biblias de Tijuana podría quedar muy interesante. ;)

Es una muy buena idea, Diego. Ahora mismo estoy intentando ampliar mi galería de ilustraciones para tener un portfolio decente que presentar por ahí y hacer un póster de ese estilo me parece muy apetecible!

Thanks, brother! Actually I had that text arrangement sitting in a .psd file for a couple of months-- it was something I had made for another project, but didn't end up being used, and since I liked how it came out, I figured I would recycle it as soon as I had the chance, so here it is! :laughing:

Right on brother! :D Just yesterday I've read this "Pixar's 22 rules of storytelling" thing that someone put up on Facebook, and #17 was "No work is ever wasted. And if it's not working, let go and move on - if it's useful, it'll show up again". :w00t:

Nicely put!
By the way, brother-- have you heard of a book called "The Five Cs Of Cinematography"? www.amazon.com/dp/187950541X/r… This is a book that comics artists in the 1970s were passing to each other by way of polishing their visual storytelling skills-- I only just now found out about it...

DiegoTripodi Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2014
I didn't know that book, brother-- it's got some great reviews from what I've seen at Amazon's page! Have you had a chance to read it?

In late 2013, I had to make a long bus trip, and used the occassion to start re-reading Scott McCloud's "Understanding Comics", and liked it much better than when I first read it (probably somewhere between '99 and 2000). When I got back home later that day, I had to walk some blocks under a storm, and when opening up my bag, my copy of it ended up all wet... :faint:

Ah SHIIIT!!! :lmao: Yah, some of my beloved books got decidedly waterlogged after the flood out here-- I totally sympathize, man! I love that Scott McCloud book, but I also found it easier to assimilate the second time around-- I'm sure I'll be reading it again, and soon. This cinematography book I just found out about, though-- I've never held a copy of it in my hand...

Back in December, I was arranging some stuff over here (something I tend to do at the end of each year), and found a lot of film-related texts from 2007/8, when I was at film school (the texts are photocopies, not the real books :ashamed:), which I haven't checked since those years. Lots of interesting stuff, as I recall (though some I found uninteresting, to be fair). I'll probably get to re-read some of that as soon as I get the time. I wonder if among those there aren't excerpts from the book you mentioned... :sherlock:

As for Understanding Comics, agreed completely, brother. I think it's one of those books that one can get more form on subsequent reads. :nod:

It's really worth a read.  Some of his stuff can be incomprehensible, but that one is a great, tight story.

Thanks Mikey! I actually haven't read the comic-- love the artwork I've seen from it though. I remember seeing an ad for it on a "Previews" catalog from '99, and thinking "that's a neat title for a book". Other than that, the other day I've read about the poster project on Tumblr, and since I liked the character's costume, and I like making posters, I thought I would give it a shot at getting this done!

The comic is great! It's my second favorite Paul Pope bookmy favorite being the first darkhorse printing of the one trick rip off. You excell at those posters. If I had a film coming out you definitely could expect a call!

Get the camera rolling, send me the synopsis for the film, and let's take Hollywood by storm, Mikey! :D I have a few issues of the "Dark horse presents" anthology from the 90s, where they would run chapters from the One Trick Rip Off, and while I haven't read the whole thing, I liked what I've read so far. There was a short story that Paul Pope did in those years (which I think was published in a DHP Annual from '97), called "4 cats", which I loved. I don't know if it was reprinted somewhere else, but as I recall it was a wonderful short piece, very moody and effective.

Yeah! I think all the DH short stories and a few of his unpublish kodansha manga attempts were collected in new One Trick Rip-off trade. I prefer the original collection for OTRO because it allows it to stand on its own black and white line art. Same with short stories on newsprint. Love the aged off-white tint paper with a good dark ink!
