French art director and illustrator Troqman makes clever use of both his pens and his sketchbooks as well as his surroundings in order to create entertaining drawings of characters appearing to interact with the real world. Our favorite pieces involve characters on multiple pages or sketchbooks interacting with each other as well as the 3D world.

Ogopogo, a creature said to lurk in Canada’s Lake Okanagan, is the most likely and best documented of all lake monsters. The creature is most often described as being one to two feet in diameter, with a length of 15 to 20 feet. The head has been described variously as being horse or goat-like. One oft-mentioned characteristic of the monster is its resemblance to a log. Monster hunters from all over the world have been drawn to the area for research purposes, and many of the sightings have been as strong or stronger than those at Loch Ness. Multiple witness sightings of Ogopogo, so rare, with many other controversial phenomena, have occurred on many occasions.

Thumbnails sketches for #007, #008, and #010, showing how I initially make and write the strips. I carry a clipboard with a few sheets of printer paper around the house with me. I’ll get an idea and write down a word or two as a topic. Then determine how many panels it will take (I try for at least four and no more) and write the dialog and, if action or visuals are needed, quickly sketch those in. I’ll then start the process again inside Manga Studio based on these roughs.
Finishing the last strip, #014.
The group had targeted the Warren County Report over allegedly anti-Catholic articles published by one writer, Roger Bianchini, who has covered clergy sex abuse and efforts to overturn a decades-old ban on fortune telling and other “magic arts.” The town council voted last month to overturn the ban, which some residents wanted to remain in place “out of fear” of “Satanism.” “These kinds of businesses do tend to attract, in part, a criminal element,” said resident Mary Stanford. “I don’t like the idea of my kids walking down Main Street and having possibly criminal people lurking around.”
There are rather large pockets of ignorant people in my state. I feel like driving over there and getting a box of donuts (even though I’ve quit sugar) in support of her. Fuck stupidity.
Mr. Aronofsky and Mr. Scott are, however unwittingly, perpetuating a church-sanctioned racial hierarchy that reaches back centuries, Mr. Herring says. “Depictions of white only Biblical figures (including prophets, angels, Jesus, etc.) were intentionally used to subconsciously indoctrinate the false belief of white divinity (and therefore superiority) upon the minds of the oppressed and conquered.”
