Dream Shadow ~ Mœbius Masterpieces

4.5 x 11.5” 2012-2014

by Frans Boukas

colors by Simone Nemes

My submission for the now defunct Electric Ant Zine Mœbius Collector Card tribute. Where over 80 amazing artists chose one of Mœbius’ cards to recreate. As you can see in my notes I was totally hoping to make this into a real trading card.

Back in the early 1990’s, when anime was still called “Japanimation” and The Simpsons still featured Phil Hartman, no one could have conceived of the concept of Bartkira. Yet 23 years later, in Neo-Britain, artist Ryan Humphrey gave life to the unimaginable. His pages for the mind-bending crossover comic ignited a fire in the mind of comic artist James Harvey, who proposed the impossible:

Recreate every page of Akira using characters from The Simpsons.

It would take 768 artists, each contributing five pages, to redraw the full six volumes of Katsuhiro Otomo’s masterwork. A monumental group comic project unlike any other inspired working illustrators, comics professionals, and even some who had never drawn a comic in their lives. Now for the first time, the project that some have heralded as the greatest thing to ever happen to the Internet is here to destroy Floating World Comics.

Come to Floating World Comics at 6:00 p.m. on May 1st for the opening of the Bartkira gallery show and meet members of the Bartkira Committee. Floating World will also debut a limited edition book collecting 100 pages from the Bartkira project as well as a full color gallery section.

WHO: Frans Boukas, members of the Bartkira Committee
WHAT: Bartkira book release and art exhibit
WHEN: Thursday May. 1st, 6-10pm
WHERE: Floating World Comics, 400 NW Couch St

Solid Waste ~ pin-up

2010

This was another team-up illustration Matt and I did for his Violent Comic, Solid Waste. I drew logo & monster on this one, while he drew the monster on the Brolar pin-up.
