The Dance of Bones

Hello, this is Alex Sheikman again with another short from my sketchbook.

Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard #1 from Archaia is coming out next week and I have a 9 page story in that. To promote the book, as well as Robotika and my sketchbook, I will be doing a signing at a local comic book store...so if any of you are planning to be in San Jose on June 12th, please do stop by :)


  1. Brilliant! A powerful and eerily beautiful story. It's one of those that instantly take root in the mind - the mark of a true classic.

  2. Absolutely beautiful!

    I just love the intellect underpinning the treatment of these pages, very stylish without losing the poignancy of the story.

    The fact that you can see the blue pencil and the washes of ink just adds to the rawness of the artwork.

  3. I love seeing the 'behind the scenes' blue pencil work and the black masked-out areas before the page has been processed.

    Juxtaposing space and time in such a way has always fascinated me as a theme. For example; cutting between the child version and an elderly version of the same person, or what you have done by creating historical context to an archaeological site. It gives you a real sense of time and a scope to our own mortality and the fleeting nature of life in this universe. (All that from 4 pages, so it must be good!)
