Taillefer - Les Sentinelles - French WW1 Comic hero

This is Taillefer from the French comic series Les Sentinelles.

While my Dr. Grordbort's Exhibtion was in Nantes a couple years back I met Julien Mokrani who's making a film adaptation of the comic and I did a quick interpretation for him of the main character.

Looks like it could be bloody epic, and anything that features robotic soldiers fighting World War One has my vote.

A write up about the film version here at Le Figaro.

Umami Monster and MECHA-HOP designs, for Garage Project Beer

I love making art for beer - it's the perfect trade!

These are the designs I did for Garage Project for their two new, highly experimental beers, Umami Monster (brewed with sea weed, sea water and bonito flakes) and the beer designed to combat it, MECHA-HOP (brewed with refined hop oil, refined yeast and other industrialised ingredients).

They're both pretty full on beers, and have great high concepts behind them. These guys really go to town with the brewing methodologies and stories behind their beers.

Tim Gibson, creator of Moth City took my designs and turned them into beautiful posters, labels and t-shirts, which you can see here.

I recommend both beers, but you might wanna baton down your taste-buds - they're as mighty as you'd expect.
