In a few days I’ll be at the Munich Comic Festival to sign the german edition of Don Camillo. If you drop in there, say hello and ask for Penny. I’ll have some pins and cards to sell and I may draw you a fast sketch of our favorite adventurer!

Here is some example of the storyboard I make to build every Penny’s page.
It shows a mix of pencil and digital art, due to the revision work (pencil panels are ther remains of an older version, then integrated in the final sequence).
Dave non sembra una cattiva persona, anche se a volte può risultare irritante.
Con me è sempre molto gentile, ma non sono sicura che questa sia una fortuna. Il modo che ha di guardarmi mi fa sentire… sporca!
E poi, se siamo in questa situazione è anche un po’ colpa sua.
Con la signorina Kellermann si prende meno confidenze. Anzi, sembra proprio evitarla.
Ieri l’ho sentita borbottare qualcosa mentre lui si grattava il fondoschiena: “Das schwein!”
Io non conosco bene il tedesco, ma credo che schwein voglia dire “maiale“…
Da lì ho tratto spunto per questo disegno a pennino.
Dave “The pig”.
Dave doesn’t look a bad fellow, although sometimes he could turn annoying.
He’s always nice to me, but I’m not sure if I should feel lucky. The way he looks at me makes me feel like… dirty!
Besides that, if we’re in this hole it’s largerly because of him.
He’s not so friendly with miss Kellermann. Actually they seem to avoid each other.
Yesterday I heard her muttering while he was scratching his backside: “Das schwein!“
I don’t speak german, but I think it means “The pig“…
That gave me inspiration to make this ink drawing.
Dave “The pig”.
It sounds good…
Dave no parece mala persona, aunque a veces puede resultar molesto.
Conmigo es siempre muy agradable, pero no estoy segura de que eso sea una suerte. La forma que tiene de mirarme me hace sentir… ¡sucia!
Además, si estamos en este lío es también por su culpa.
Con la señorita Kellermann se toma menos confianza. De hecho los dos parecen ignorarse mutuamente.
Ayer la escuché murmurando mientras él se arrascaba el trasero: “Das schwein!“
Yo no hablo alemán, pero creo que significa “El cerdo“…
Eso me dio inspiración para hacer este dibujo a plumilla.
Dave “The Pig”.
A full new episode of Penny Rogers is online now on verticalismi.it.
It’s a dreamlike sequence initially thought for the main storyline that I rearranged in a vertical format.
You’ll see it soon here on my blog, but here you can take a look to the italian version (pictures speak for themselves).
Don’t miss to give a chance to the other comics too, it’s really worth it
Here is a special commission I made for a friend who asked me to draw my version of Valkyrie.
Penny was so jealous that she decided to steal her the show using an old magic lantern she found in her trunk.
She knows what’s what!
Here is the first Penny fan art!
Andrew was the fastest artist to send me his own interpretation our heroine: a barefoot Penny wandering into the desert.
Maybe has she lost herself?
You can see more of Andrew’s art on his webcomic page: Peeps&Perks (NSFW)
Are you an artist?
Send me your free interpretation of Penny or any other character and I’ll put it here on Penny’s tribute gallery with a link to your site/blog.
No specific technique is required: pencil, ink, digital painting, photography or even Lego bricks are admitted.
So what are you waiting for? Make your Penny, make Penny yours!
