Artwork: To the House of Light

Yuki Makimachi: To the House of Light

As part of our feature “commissioned artwork of our characters drawn by other talented artists”, the Indonesian artist Dewitri Virika (Yuki Makimachi) drew the picture you can see above. It is titled “To the House of Light” and one of several steampunk related pictures that will be published over the course of the next months. I have already commissioned two additional drawings from Yuki, who was one of five artists whom I considered as colorist for Sandra and Woo. By the way, Yuki is living in Bandung, just like Powree.

Artwork: Procyon

Exarrdian: Procyon (Sandra and Woo under the stars)

Within the scope of our feature “commissioned artwork of our characters drawn by other talented artists”, the Bulgarian artist Denny (Exarrdian) drew the picture you can see above. It is titled “Procyon” since Sandra and Woo are checking out the star Procyon which might be the namesake for the Latin name of the raccoon, Procyon lotor.

R.I.P. Loriot

Loriot, the greatest German humorist that ever lived, died yesterday.

Loriot

His sketches and cartoons are still as relevant and funny as they were decades ago when they were first aired/published. I doubt I will live long enough to see another comedian who’s able to match the standard he set. Loriot was a keen observer of the German nature, the petty bourgeois was the main target, but not victim, of his humor. In his sketches, seemingly ordinary situations featuring ordinary people subtly escalated into absurdity.

The following sketch doesn’t require proficiency in German except for his last sentence: “The picture is crooked.”


Artwork: The Flamethrower

Serathus: The Flamethrower (Larisa with a flamethrower)

Within the scope of our feature “commissioned artwork of our characters drawn by other talented artists”, the Philippine artist Jericho (Serathus) drew the picture you can see above. It is, for obvious reasons, titled “The Flamethrower”.
