Description

From the publisher:

Exceptionally gifted draftsman, Christian Rossi has worked with the greatest: Jean-Michel Charlier Serge Le Tendre, through Jijé and Jean Giraud / Moebius (WEST, Jim Cutlass, Deadline, Tiresias, The Glory of Hera, etc. )

This sketchbook opens with an invitation to travel and highlights the spiritual dimension that we find in the stories of Rossi, its appeal to the Other and Elsewhere.

His sketches of living models in ink, pen and brush, with a rare expressiveness reveal the strength and dynamism of its intense line, full and generous.

Faces marked by violence, looks bordering on madness, pouting, languid, anxiety, weariness, smiles lit by the sweetness of his pencil, endearing faces: the expressions of Rossi's characters, human or animal, affect us.

Worthy heir to Jijé and Milton Caniff, Christian Rossi is a master of cutting, inking and narration. The balance between black and white is stunning in his work. Meanwhile, his mastery of direct color is amazing: pastel, gouache, ink and watercolor.
