The bloody chamber: Comic book adaptation!

"The Bloody Chamber" is a short story by Angela Carter, which is based on the fable, "Blue beard". I loved this story ever since I read it in a class at RISD and I've been meaning to make a comic book adaptation of this story for a long time. Last sunday, I was suddenly struck by the god of drawing and sketched up of the most dramatic scene of the story in a storm. I love how Ms. Carter gives a little feminist twist at the end of the story, that the girl is saved by her kick ass mother! I had so much fun drawing it. :)

Martin de Thurah

Martin De Thurah is a Danish film director who did music videos for bands like Royksopp, Mew, Carpark North, and Fever Ray. I first noticed his video through Royksopp's 'What Else Is There'. His videos are very eerie, dark but also humorous which I find very appealing. It’s like watching a modern version of Grimm’s fairytales. His delicate color palettes and use of beautiful but odd youth reminds me of ‘Paranoid Park’, a recent films by Gus Van Saint and ‘Let the Right One In’, a Swedish film about a vampire girl.
