Lady Gloves - Film noir comic

Click download on the left to see two illustrations I did for this project, and a sample of my storyboard.

Cheesecake! Studio was commissioned to design the program booklet for this years Abunai convention, including a 20page manga with the theme Film Noir, which was one of the most fun themes ever (the witty quotes, dramatic lighting and endless cigarette smoke! And I kinda went loose with that insane action sequence in the end.) It also made a bit of fun of the convention audience, staff and houserules ("huisregels") The script is based on a collection famous film Noir quotes from various movies and Bill Watterson XD

The final result:

I love how all these different personal styles ended up mixed in one comic. Working with so many different artists was a cool experiment, but also an organizing NIGHTMARE, so we'll probably never do this again!!

Let me know what you think!!
Thanks for reading!
