Cyclops is one of my favorite X-Men characters, maybe because his supossed lack of charisma. He has to carry a responsibility that sometimes he doesn't want, but he can't refuse because of his sense of duty. It's like the organizer of a party: he's in the middle of all those lights, music, drinks and dancing people, but can't fully enjoy of it all because he has to make sure everything's OK.

Towards the end of 2008 I came up with an idea for a comic-book about catlike people. Yeah, I know that's not be the most original idea, as catpeople have been around in fantasy, science-fiction and comics for a long time, but I had a great time developing that story (mystery, thriller, some magic...) and every now and then I fancy drawing some of those characters just for fun.

Another fake DMZ cover. A bunch of soldiers from the Free States of America organize an improvised attempt to invade Manhattan without their superiors' permission. That's going to end up in something very bad, of course.

Fake DMZ cover. Maybe the drawing is a little bit simplistic, but I like the composition of the image.
I started reading DMZ just three or four months ago, and got instantly in love with the book. I'm not a big fan of war stories, but this one is heavily centered in the characters and the place instead of just the action, which makes it way more interesting. Also, it's Manhattan!

The Joker is the perfect villain. We don't need to understand what his motivation is, because he's crazy and that's just all. That makes him terribly interesting but, far from making him and easy-to-write character, I think it also makes him more difficult to write. Why should I care about a villain if I'm never explained why he does what he does?. I guess insane characters are a double-edged sword.
The model for this illustration was my internet pal Michael.
