First order to Amazon!

This is my first order to Amazon. I did it to the English page Amazon.co.uk because it was cheaper than the american. Those are the Star Wars books I just ordered:


The Art Of Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones includes more than 500 illustrations including sketches, costume designs, set pieces, models, and brilliant full-color paintings; an in-depth look at the new creatures introduced in Episode II; behind-the-scenes accounts and anecdotes related by the artists themselves; visuals of exotic planets, spacecraft, and characters such as Jango Fett, Count Dooku, and Jedi Luminara Unduli; poster art created especially for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. It also features the illustrated screenplay.




Star wars Episode II Visual Dictionary is the third book in the Visual Dictionary series. It describes and exhibits the elements of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. It is written in such a way so as not to give away any spoilers as to what happens in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones or Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

It was republished as part of Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary

Sagarrak eta Melokotoiak (Apples and Peaches)


There was spare space in my High School magazine second issue so they asked me if I could draw another comic. This strip is supposed to come after the comic Kakalardokeriak I first draw. The guy here is Joxeina Imaz, our mathematic teacher and tutor this last two years in Txantxiku Ikastola. Joxeina is kind of a person that doesn't enjoy weird stuff and cares a bit of us for being a little disoriented. This year for example we have been watching Fight Club at schools ethic class, but first this class was only once a week, second it was only 50 minutes long and third we had to discuss many things before starting to watch the movie so we ended up watching it in five parts or so. I remenbered Joxeina with his saddest face telling us: "This film has no head no feet" (pelikula honek ez dik ez buru ez hanka).
This strip is a recopilation of classics phrases like this that usually says to us wile he is teaching some maths on the board. He is such a funny guy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did drawing and writting it. Or maybe you have to know him to fully enjoy it. Anyway. Here it is.

Kakalardokeriak (Bettle days)




I have just finished a comic strip for Txantxiku Ikastola High School magazine. In this second issue of the magazine I decided to make something less controversial, after the reaction of some teachers to the comic I did for last years first issue. I will add an english translation later. Basque readers enjoy!
