My story in Heavy Metal by AxelMedellin My story in Heavy Metal by AxelMedellin
Someone may remember I said I'll do this some time...

Well, crack open the champagne, folks... the november 2007 issue of Heavy Metal magazine is out today worldwide (except in Australia, I think), and it includes a short story written by R.G. Llarena and illustrated by yours truly... here's a sample page...

Go and buy one... it's good for you.

First blood. Things are starting to happen. Thanks to everyone for the constant encouraging. This is dedicated to my beloved.

Oh, yes... applause. Thanks.

im just amazed by the ammount of metal things in this, especialy the unique take on science fiction that happesn rareley outside of heavy metal, even if the whole pterosaurs thing got pretty much a staple after taarna

Loved HM magazine since i was 18 in 1999 when i subscribed and loved the 1981 movie since i was 12 in 1993 then when i was 15 when it hit video.

Do you think The Fifth Element and Avatar were the closet movies of being like Heavy Metal stories or issues brought to the screen?

Muchas, muchas gracias.

Realmente no hay gran truco... todo es photoshop (no puedo con el painter), y sólo uso el pincel redondo con más o menos transparencias...(con wacom, claro). La idea es usarlo como pintura tradicional, o sea, rayas y pinceladas y nada de filtros. Bueno, así es como yo lo uso.

Stunning. Beautiful, and inspiring.

I submitted a few strips to HM back in the late '90s and early '00s, and kept getting those damn standard rejection letters 'til I gave up and wised up, realising I'd never get strips published anywhere.

Respect due!! :D
