Recommended: SUCKER PUNCH TRAILER

I couldn’t help link to this kick-ass trailer for Zack Snyder‘s latest, “Sucker Punch“. It seems the director of comic book adaptions “300” and “Watchmen” has outdone himself with this crazy flick. It’s got EVERYTHING in it! Sword-wielding, machine-gun toting hotties in schoolgirl outfits, exploding airships, zombie Nazis, samurai robots, fire breathing dragons and Vanessa Hudgens. Wether this is […]

Shark Sequence part II Here is another look at the dream sequence I discussed earlier. It symbolises loss of control, probably one of the biggest fears of modern man. I guess there are other interpretations, like the fact that sharks have to keep moving or they die. Fierce predators, reacting on instinct. Maybe they are […]

I visited fellow artists in Malmö today. Though only a half-hour train ride away, Malmö is actually in Sweden. Yes, it’s another country. No, Denmark is not the capital of Sweden, that’s Ikea. I hooked up with Niklas Asker, creator of “Top Shelf” published graphic novel “Second Thoughts” and exile Dane Allan Haverholm in their working space at […]

The Devil's Concubine: BLOWING S**T UP

The Devil’s Concubine: BLOWING S**T UP

This is what I love about doing comics. That’s a vintage car I’m blowing up, two “actors” risking their life… What would that scene cost if this was a Hollywood movie? But in a graphic novel, what does it cost me to do? Nothing! If I can draw it, I can blow it up. The […]

The Devil's Concubine: DANISH REVIEWS

The Devil’s Concubine: DANISH REVIEWS

I’ve gathered  some reviews of the Danish book. They’re in Danish (surprise) but I thought I would share it with you anyway: Seriejournalen:“De gode takter var allerede at spore i “Skyggen af bevis”, men med “Blodets konkubine” realiseres de næsten alle sammen. Alt er super-prof fra selve værket til dens indpakning…”Læs resten af anmeldelsen her. […]

Peter is known for his work on books such as “The Lords of Misrule“, “Books of Magic”, “Starman”, “The Light Brigade” and “A God […]

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Christmas snuck up on me again… But I did manage to send out a few Christmas cards. If you didn’t get one, here’s what it looks like. See you back here in 2011. Please note the new and simpler url: http://www.palleschmidt.com/

The Devil's Concubine: TRAVELLING MONEY

The Devil’s Concubine: TRAVELLING MONEY

Just got word that I have received a travel grant to promote “The Devil’s Concubine” in the US this summer. Thank you, Danish Art Council! The plane ticket is now paid for by Danes’ hard-earned tax money. I assure you that any leftover funds will be spent on comics and colored drinks. I can’t wait. Looking […]

Work in progress: STILETTO

Perhaps introductions are in order. Here are the two protagonist in “Stiletto”. The smarmy guy to the left is Alphonse Ruiz, his older partner to the right is Maynard. This is just a pin-up I did, trying out some new loose techniques. If the pair seem familiar, it’s because they appeared in “The Devil’s Concubine“.
