This weekend we had a costume party for Hugo's tenth birthday. A few weeks earlier, while watching an Asterix movie, I realized that if I am ever to dress up as Obelix, the time is now. So I made costumes for the three of us (with some help from the boys of course). And here we are:
We like dressing up, so last year we were Tintin, Captain Haddock and a Thompson twin for Halloween:
I realized that this is not just any old dressing-up, this is cosplay! And I like it. :)
I seem to have forgotten to blog about it at the time, but I made an illustration for an interview with Stefan Diös, Swedish Donald Duck translator, in Bild & Bubbla (The Swedish Comics Association's magazine) #188.
See, I told you it wouldn't take twelve months to make the next New Year's comic! Here's my recap of 2012:

Below are links to the previous New Year's comics and Christmas cards. The concept is to make a Christmas card and a one-page New Year's comic every year; both in a well-known comic-book style. Last year was Asterix and this year it was time for ducks. Next year I am considering several styles: Marcinelle, la ligne claire, Bauer... Haven't decided yet! I am open to suggestions. :)
A couple of years ago, I started a tradition to draw a one-page New Year's comic recapping the previous year. Me and Fredrik write a script together, and I draw it, preferably in the same style as that year's Christmas card. However, a year ago, some other stuff came up before I was able to finish... So now, with a few hours to spare before it's time to publish the next one, here's the fantastic recap of 2011!
Stay tuned for the awesome continuation, which probably will be published within the next 12 months.
