“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Okay, so I don't know what or who is pissing him off or who's inspiring him right now, but Eric's drawing like a crazy person and you guys who read his blog are going to be the beneficiary. There are an obscene amount of 90 minute exercises all over the floor and I haven't seen him draw this much since back in the heyday. And guess what? None of them are "draw-overs". Not one. And if you know anything about the way the guy works, you know that's near impossible.

So I'm really, really scared now because I don't know who the person is who's sitting at his desk. I'm going to ration this stuff out, but I think I can put up one new image a day for the next three weeks or so. I'm just guess-timating.

Oh... and he's painting. A lot. Is that enough hype for you? Tune in tomorrow.

Does Canete have an art book out? I love his sketches. Love the dynamic camera angles and gestures. Would be great to see them collected.
