The first read through

One of the most incredible moments of our time in Toronto was sitting through the table reading of the first episode with the entire cast. Seeing all the actors there, together, and hearing the entire script out loud, was amazing. Right there we started to see how much the actors were going to bring to these characters, and how exciting it was to see this story coming to life beyond the pages of the comics.

The end of the first trip

It was a cold week in this Canadian winter, and yet we all felt warm inside. Watching all the cast and crew work on the show was amazingly inspiring. I think in 2018 we’ll work harder than we ever did before.


Highlights of our trip included, besides being at the shoot and meeting everybody who's onboard in this adventure:
-seeing Chris, Andrew and Peter, talking about the Beguiling, TCAF and comics festivals around the World.
-having lunch with Jeff Lemire to catch up (plus having a look at his amazing collection of original art)
-meeting Francis Manapul and Tonci, catching up with Ramón Peréz and visiting the RAID studio
-watching a VERY exciting basketball game between the Toronto Raptor and the Golden State Warriors, with a very tense and incredible last quarter.

The pilot boys

“The boys” of the pilot. Director, DP and executive producers with their game faces on. It was fascinating to watch all these people work, every day, crafting every scene. These are the people who have to grasp how the entire episode work and have to have this bigger picture in mind while shooting every scene.

inktober #5 - Moon Girl

I'm getting tired already. My brain keeps guilting me into getting back to the story I'm pursuing. He's right, my brain.

"I'm surrounded, and yet alone."

Inktober #4 - Moon Girl

These drawings exercise my brain and my hand and my creativity. Maybe I'm spending too much time with them, time I should be spending on any other one of my... my...
I don't know how to call stories that aren't stories yet. I don't want to call them projects (even if that's what I call them when I have to write an email and say I'm already working on too many projects), and I don't want to call them ideas, even if that's what they are. My ideas are much more something that I feel that I want to turn into a sequence of images, to try to prolong this feeling and, perhaps, to make it grow into unexpected interesting moments.
"You hold the key to my heart", I say to her.
She knows.
