Tin Tin easter egg ride by Red-J Tin Tin easter egg ride by Red-J
Hello!
Here is a commission I did late last year. I grew up reading these comics as a kid. Along with Asterix, these were probably some of the first comics I ever saw. When I was asked to do a Tin Tin piece, I was very excited to go back and research these guys! I wanted to create a piece that was kind of like a love letter to the series in a way, so I took some of the iconic things I remembered from the various covers and threw them all in the mix.

This piece is 100% traditional created with ink, marker and pencil on bristol board.

I wonder if any of you guys can name all the stories that the bits and pieces in the drawing come from.... that is a challenge!

thanks for looking,
Jon.

Oh man, that is brilliant! Let's see, other references...

The shark submarine from "Red Rackham's Treasure"...

The vase I'm thinking might be from "The Blue Lotus"?

 

Seriously though that is so cool, I too grew up on Asterix and Tin Tin too and this is a fantastic homage.
