INFERNO en francais

Working on a new cover for the french edition of my graphic novel Inferno, scheduled for May this year. It will be printed as a lino cut. This is a really crappy test print, but for some reason I'm without oil-based inks, so it will have to do. Pleased with the design however. No mistakes. I do have to add the title, still. Now that's a challenge.

The linoleum proved to be good to handle. Not crumbly or slippery.

(The initial sketch, lifted from one of the pages in the book.)
