Right now there’s another Spirou exhibition going on at the Matadero Madrid art center in Madrid, Spain. Co-organized by Spirou publisher Dibbuks and called simply Spirou en Madrid, it presents some of the works that were previously exhibited in the different “… y se escribe Spirou” art shows in various places across Spain back in 2015. One of them is this piece by David Garrido, originally from the exhibition in Cádiz. You can see photos of the Madrid exhibition here.
The deadline for the 24-hour Spirou challenge has now passed, with 10 completed entries and another 14 partially finished. One of the ones still working is Andaine (amateur category), who has been live-streaming the progress for the last day, page by hand-painted page. (The livestream just went offline while writing this post, so instead I’ve included a video clip from yesterday. The rest of them are on Twitch.) You can see the uploaded pages here.
Congratulations to all contestants, and looking forward to reading their stories over the next few days!
On 11. and 12. May (that’s Thursday and Friday next week), Dupuis and la Cité internationale de la bande dessinée et de l’image (“The International City of Comics and Illustration Art”) cultural center in Angoulême will arrange a Spirou comic challenge, where participants from all over the world are invited to create a 24-page Spirou comic (22 pages + front and back covers) in 24 hours.

New fanart from tumblr. The artist comments that the Spirou & Fantasio art style is hard to copy. It came out pretty well, didn’t it?
Looks sort of like a foldable card or something…
There was some discussion about the interpretation of Luna Cortizone in the last Scanlation Sunday update. Here’s a more conventional version of the character, by Charline Mahroug aka Winona Adamon:
Nicolas Lacombe goes by the handle Kurenai and makes art using scotch tape, as seen in this video:
Finished piece under the cut…
The “most recent” sorting on tumblr is weird, but otherwise I probably wouldn’t have seen this piece from 2014.
