A few weeks back, Spirou Reporter was contacted by Klaus, who among other things pointed to his blog of architecture-related comics. While many of the jokes perhaps only make sense to people in the field, everyone should be able to appreciate the Franquin-inspired drawings. Sometimes the influence is acknowledged in little winks, as when various familiar characters make cameo appearances…
From the current issue of the Journal de Spirou (#3932), celebrating the Bordeaux region, comes this drawing by Gabrion of our friends surfing the tidal waves on the Garonne.
Eyz drew this Spirou doodle. Not much more to say about it, really… You can check out his livestream to pictures being drawn, but this one doesn’t seem to be on there.
Perhaps you don’t think one piece of fanart a week is enough? In that case, you might want to check out InediSpirou’s fandom blog, where Emyla picks a different piece every week (Monday’s apparently). Here’s one of Seccotine (Cellophine in Cinebook’s English translation) from a couple of weeks back:
At the Angoulême Spirou Expo, they have a “draw your own Spirou” activity, and some of the entries have been posted to Spirou.com. I was particularly impressed by this one, by Clément S., age 8 (really?!).
That’s a pretty sophisticated grasp of cartoon sketching for an eight-year old! You should go check out the gallery for more examples (many of the artists are older than 8).
Some DeviantArt for a Friday…
I like that this fanart is so specifically about Spirou #53. Very nicely done, I actually went to the album to check if they’d been traced. (Nope!)
