20 years ago mr Jeff Smith changed the scenary of comics books by self publishing his graphic novel "BONE". Even if the italian publishing went through countless difficoulties, I maneged to read it all, so we can say mr smith also changed something in my life..
I did this pic in occasion of the Comic Con Souvenir Book, because I felt I just had to draw something for the 20th anniversary of my favourite comic book!
Media I used: Acrylics, Ecoline and Pantone Markers
Characters Jeff Smith

Congratulazioni, gran bella soddisfazione! E soprattutto complimenti per il disegno, veramente ben fatto. Mi piace in particolare la sintesi fra lo stile di Smith e il tuo tocco personale.
Ad aver saputo di questa cosa magari avrei potuto partecipare anch'io riciclando un mio vecchio (e pure invecchiato maluccio) pezzo su Bone. :XD:

Some years ago they featured some Bone comics in Disney Adventures and I loved them! Unfortunately they started mid story arch, when Bone met Thorn, and ended at the start of the cow race, so I had no real clue as to what was going on. Do you know if an book containing all the stories has been published in English?

They compiled ALL of the comics and made a gigantic tome, but these are all in black and white - but to get the color comics you have to buy separate books.

Oh man, Bone. I love this! <3

I remember reading about the history of these characters, when he would draw them when he was just a young boy...they were called Bones because they were apparently anthropomorphosed dog bones!
