New Comic - For Book of Children's Dreams.

The book is called "Elmonstruodecoloresnotieneboca" and it's the project of Roger Omar (Spain). What he's done is collect dreams from children in Mexico, Spain, and Brazil and is having artists render them from several different countries as well. The collection will include cartoonists Rene French, Matti Hagelberg, Anke Feuchtenberger, and Max as well as illustrators like Derek M. Ballard, Steak Mountain, and Flavio Morais (any many, many more). I illustrated the dream I chose as a comic strip simply because of the narrative nature of the dream itself. I'm not quite sure when the book will be out or where you can purchase it, but once I do, I'll be sure to post something about it. Oh, and here is the dream I illustrated:

Jesus Roberto (Mexico)
The Puncher Ghosts
"One day I dreamed that there were ghosts in my house... They punched me when I was left alone, and when my mother arrived, she found me all beaten up... From that moment she doesn't leave me alone anymore."

Yikes, talk about a scary dream! Poor kid. As usual, great colors. The ghosts seem a little less frightening because they appear to be blanketed in sheets, but the abuse is more than apparent ;)

Thanks to you both! Yeah, I had doodled out some different kinds of ghosts and I figured the white-sheet type was silly enough to make the beating a little less heavy. But yeah, this book is going to be pretty damn interesting.

This looks great and the whole project seems to become very interesting. There are wonderful artists joining the book.

Thanks Ulf! Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing the project as a book. Should be very cool.
