cosmopolis#0

Beggining tomorrow, I will be posting a new ongoing comic strip, Cosmopolis.

This new series was born out of a growing necessity of developing my own creative playground, free from the baggage of collaborations and others' editorial visions. Now, I have nothing against writers, editors or teaming-up with other creators -- I've done so in the past, hopefully I'll continue to do so and it should be underlined that it does have its rewards -- but the result of such ventures usually tends to be a compromise that isn't always easy and most of the time doesn't necessarilly fulfill my personal vision. Basically, I need something that allows me to follow my creative instincts and take my art through paths I wish to see it cover.

As a result of this, I've taken to the challenge of doing it all on my own: creating, writing, drawing and lettering my own characters and stories -- the blame for its outcome as a comic strip lies strictly upon me. I've decided to start by cleaning up an old project I had lying around my studio and revamp it according to my current drawing and storytelling abilities.

I hope you stick around for this experiment and have fun with it.

I surely will!
