ASTERIX



ASTERIX & THE VIKINGS is released in France in April & the posters are already on the Paris Metro. But WHO had to draw all those characters? Boris . . .

Beautiful work! I really like the life drawings too!

ey- it wasn't me man!
as a matter of fact let me clear something up: I worked on that film for a couple of weeks! And NOT at A-Film! so no anecdotes or insider stories I'm afraid.

The only thing I can tell everyone is that it's the best Asterix film so far- I thought it was genuinely funny and charming(leica), and the animation is very good.

here's a Swedish trailer:

Oh yeah, I'd like to msee the pencil version, maybe in close up on some of those vikings? Are they really ALL different?
Your website has some really cool work on there - very impressive. Lots of great character sketches & designs. Thanks again for stopping by here & contributing.
