ASTERIX by Francesco Francavilla

ASTERIX: The Island
(highly suggested to click on the above image for a really bigger view :))

I am running a LOST themed week over my blog, so to keep it on topic I decided to give to Asterix a LOST twist :)

I present you : THE ISLAND
aka: "I will find a loophole, Jacobix, and when I find it, I will kill you and get off this rock" :)

Hope you enjoy it and please check my blog for the LOST Week Marathon :)

Mike Hawthorne said...

This is fantastic!

I love these more contemplative pieces you've been doing for the Twart lately, Francesco, with this one at the top of the heap!

Francesco Francavilla said...

Thank you so much, you sweet twart-friends :)

Tom: the menhir is what gave me the idea - it was easily to be transformed in this huge island and keep it in the LOST theme of the week. Jacobix, well that came out instantly once I decided what to draw ;)
Andy: aaaaaww, man, you know how to make me blush, do you? :)
Mike: waiting to see your inspired take :)
Evan: maybe becuase I am in a contemplative period lately? ;)

Beautiful. I never really got into Lost (lack of time, not lack of interest. I now see all series late and on DVD. I'm a TV trade-waiter), but this image really puts in mind of a Miyazaki film. It's got the same kind of dreamy wistfulness about it.

Francesco Francavilla said...

Thank you, Buck :D
Yeah, the LOST reference was a bit of a stratch (the dialogue I wrote - that goes with the image - is closer to LOST than the drawing itself. I do get why you were mentioning Miyazaki though, and I am quite flattered by the reference :) I heard a few times my work reminds sometime Japanese manga or anime sensibilities.
