Who likes GIFS? I know I do! So here’s a process GIF for Expatriate page 1 from layouts to finished black and white with tones. I think we’ll end up adding color to Expatriate, but for now black and white is just fine.

Also, as a bonus enjoy the first page of Expatriate, that’s all you get for now. :)

I made a GIF for the Expat tumblr. Hope you all dig it. PROCESS!!

Meet Frank Campbell: American. Investment banker. Married father of two teenagers….and fugitive.
When Frank is arrested by the FBI for embezzling millions of dollars from his employer, White Hall Capital, he jumps bail and his fate in a white collar ‘country club’ prison for South America. But when the money he’s stashed off-shore disappears, his life quickly spirals from the glamour of Rio’s upper echelon to the shadows of the city’s favelas.
Expatriate is not only Frank’s story, but also one of Rio de Janeiro - a city undergoing immense change in preparation for the coming World Cup and Summer Olympics. The investment in infrastructure has never been greater, and yet the gap in wealth between the rich and poor is staggering. Brazil’s military wages campaigns against armies of drug traffickers and former police turned militia, pacifying favelas one by one and turning them into police states. 

We’ve got some great work in progress to share, and we hope you come along for the ride.

" It’s a very special kind of skill; if you’re too loyal to the photo, it swallows you up. If, for instance, in the middle of a whole page of “personal” drawings, there is suddenly a drawing that is too… It’s as if there’s a sudden hole in the page. You have to take the elements from the photo that you need, and retranscribe them through your personal computer, in order to get a personal vision. The same rule applies to drawing from nature. It’s very difficult, but it’s what enables the artist to bring his vision to a work. Otherwise he’s nothing but a parrot, or an ape. [pp. 86-87]

—Jean Giraud (Moebius)
