    Bengal Sketchbook

    hola hola!

    most people who wondered where i went all this time, might have understood that i had become a comics author here in france, so the international community couldn't really see my work anymore.
    that always saddened me, plus it's not up to me to get my books translated, and it rarely happens in the french publishing industry... alas.

    anyway, here's maybe one book that might interest some of you! a small format artbook with lots of my work, mostly from my CA years, it's released very soon.

    Bengal Sketchbook

    long live the community, cheers! ;] (sorry if this isn't the proper section)

    Great to see you're still working! I missed the weekly sketches. Just ordered one of the sketchbooks.

    Cheers Gray

    I love your work Bengal, as do a lot of others.

    My french is rather rusty, but if I understand it correctly, shipping anywhere outside France will cost as much if not more than the actual price of the book, which is already kinda pricey at €15 for 48 pages imo.

    You very likely have no influence or say on that matter, but it's still a shame.

    ahhh~~ yeah that might be a problem. i didn't know. look, maybe it's worth checking on amazon or something like this, if they have it, the shipping would VERY likely be much smaller.

    sorry, it's indeed not in my powers to influence this. ;[

    Received it this weekend and it was well worth the wait. Thanks for the heads up. Just love your style so much.

    Also, I love that you got all kinds of Lego on your shelf, assuming that's your work area.

    hehe it is my workspace yeah, i work in a studio with a few other artists. by now though there has been some changes in my corner, the middle shelf on the right is housing the terrarium of my baby boa constrictor imperator, as i have a bit many snakes at home at the moment. ^^

    many thanks for your purchase, i'm very glad you enjoyed it!!

    I was in forbidden planet in dublin today and was suprised to see Bengal's sketchbook. It's lovely. So if you can't justify the massive shipping it might be worth your while to check if there's one near you.
