"In 1998 SOLO was born as a hobby to disconnect from the long list of commissions for licensed characters that came to my desk. Those first pages of SOLO were not much graphically, but they served to entertain and give free rein to sharp pencils more hooligan.
I never imagined that many years later I would draw the same story again simply to be consistent with the graphic quality of previous books. It was also the first story to be published uninked. For a long time I had worked hard to find a way to color on the pencil and preserve the freshness and imprint of the stroke, despite not considering myself a bad inker I think the decision was right, since I managed to keep the most organic part under the digital coloring of the drawing.
Perhaps for that reason this is the most careful and clean pencil work of all that I have done and, in my opinion, the best drawing of all the SOLO books. Maybe, if only for that, it's worth having. I like these kinds of books a lot.
This crowdfunding aims to publish a book with all the original pencil pages from the album "SOLO. Cannibal World". This will consist of 126 pages in 21X29.7cm format. With soft cover binding, it will not have any text or speech bubbles, the pages are clean to see the drawing in all its splendor.
This book is a special and exclusive edition, it will only be obtained through this crowdfunding. It will not be distributed or available for sale through our website.
