Last Kiss

I am sooo proud of joining the talented team of "last Kiss" by John Lustig

2015-09-17-Wait-Wait-Now

this is both great honor & totally fun ! what are the odds

I started following John Lustig (famous American Comics books writer) about 8 years ago
John has a daily funny/sexy cartoon, based on old vintage comics panels ( i love those so much- i have a huuuge arsenal of them at home) with hilarious new script and text baloons

later- i did get to meet this awesome gentleman in a Comicon convention in NY in 2008, and was amazed of how lovely and nice he is to all his followers and fans.

I told him of the love i have for old comics, even gave him a pin with my wedding invitation's illustration on it. and he still remembers it !

i followed his daily jokes and comments since- then, one day it hit me- perhaps i could be one of his painters too ??
especially that he is always so kind to his artists, give them full credit and a big stage

here- read the warm welcome he gave me on the "last Kiss" Blog

so i was very lucky to have John chose me for a member of his fabilous creative team ( now it is international !).

it is wonderful to work with him, he gives me free hand and a kind dead line.

also- the day our first collaboration aired- his news letter gave me a great welcome too…

I highly recommend visiting Lustig's site  & subscribing to his news letters ( daily funny, clever & lovely cartoon fresh on your doorstep each morning)

Also – here is his Facebook page  where i love browsing every day for the cute little highlights his columns teach  me of life, love and sex. how does he come up with all of these ideas

also- last kiss has great merchandise too. i won some real great cards at a lottery he gave once (many years ago), and now there are shirts and bags and sticky note pads…

anyway-  since we have only just started- i am still struggling to find my style for "the last kiss"
perhaps you could help me ?
i like the pop up dots style

but also adding old texture

and not completely over the retro flat look..

so- what do you think ?…

Your style is great with the white highlights and the addition of the old dot printing. It keeps the spirit of these wonderful old comics alive in the new era.

Evite, I'm really enjoying your Last Kiss work! Very Roy Lichtenstein-ish. Looking forward to seeing more great stuff in the future.

Cheers from Tokyo!
