Monster designs for comic Spera.
Giant insect/ Ash dragon/ Dreameater
Shelly Chen created these for the short comics in the new book. I have a feeling they’ll be used in some pretty surprising ways.
The Spera Gathering
This week, Mathilde Kitteh, Valentin Seiche & Sourya Sihachakr are hosted at the Atelier Sentô to work together on the new Spera book : Ascension of the Starless, written by Josh Tierney.
It’s fascinating to witness a story being illustrated in such various styles without loosing its coherence.
I’m going to go ahead and say this is the coolest Spera-related event to happen so far. Look at all these beautiful people making such beautiful art! I only wish I could be there as well, but my contribution would more than likely amount to finishing off that cake.
Mathilde Kitteh will be illustrating one of the chapter covers, along with four other incredible French artists picked by Valentin and I.

Announcing “Spera 4” as Spera: Ascension of the Starless, the first book of a new arc!
Ascension of the Starless will serve as a jumping-on point for new readers, while also providing the most exciting adventure yet for longtime fans. We’ll have more details on the story in the coming months, so for now please continue to enjoy all the sneak peaks at updated character designs and other progress. These glimpses into the book’s creation can be found on the blogs of main artists Afu Chan, Giannis Milonogiannis, Atelier Sentô, Mindy Lee, Sourya Sihachakr and Valentin Seiche.
To celebrate the reveal, Olivier and Afu have updated Spera-Comic.com with Afu’s new designs for Pira, Lono and Yonder (though Pira’s new outfit is hidden under her cloak — it’s still winter, after all!).
