New Laser Ideas

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

Something is happening to my creativity; since spring came to town about a week ago I can’t stop to think of new projects and new things for existing projects. I’ve written an article for our old closed down role-playing site Boningen, story outlined the second series of The Hitman Comic, dreamt together a few videogame concepts and storyline ideas for various media, decided to look into computer software for handicapped and other alternative ways of communicating with digital devices and finally mapped out a revamp series for a superhero team I liked as a kid: Cloak & Dagger.

And this is only the things that don’t concerns the Epitaph project…

The hitman comic

Friday, February 15th, 2008

A few years ago me and a student from the comicbook-education in Sweden sat down to make a eight issue comic book, It was meant to be a great portfolio work for both of us, still young and dreaming about being hot-shot comic people with our own monthly releases on Vertigo.

We decided to make a comic about a guy who used to work for as a hit man for the mob and paid his way trough collage with the blood money, several years later he’s happily married to an FBI agent when an old acquaintance gives him a call for a new hit. Not even thinking twice about it he takes the job. 

I wrote a story outline for the series, scripted the first 24-page issue while Björn,  the artist, started sketching on characters in both pencil and ink, eventually we met up and made a storyboard, figuring out where all the panels should be on every page and then summer came. He decided to quit drawing and started a career as a car painter, both regular and custom paintjobs (I think he’s an artist again now)and I went back to whatever I did at the time.
