On very short notice, I am leaving for France tomorrow night. Amongst other things, I will be attending 'Salon International de la Bande Dessinée de Valenciennes', a festival of sequential illustration on Nov 4th and 5th. For more information, here is a link to their site.
Afterwards, I will spend some time in Paris to meet some folks and to hold a signing at Album, which I understand is a very fine retailer. I am certain I will bring back luggage heavy with books.
I enjoy a lot of old mythology, and Native American legends seem to be somewhat overlooked when it comes to magic and monsters. Perhaps they are too close to home. I was thinking about skinwalkers, portrayed at times as something of a Native American werewolf, and wound up with the above sketch. It is Halloween, and if anyone could see what they've done to the once mythic, ancient event in West Hollywood, like me you'd wish this wolf-beast would come forth from the desert and rip your head off.
