Larime Taylor will become famous soon enough

Very old school, and very European. I really like your style. I could see it working for horror and fantasy, like old Vertigo books, but I'm not sure it works for superheroes.

I can relate. My style will likely never land me a gig at Marvel or DC. It's just not a good fit. I think the same thing, here. Your work would be good on the right title, but might not get much response from the major American publishers.

Hello Larime, i don't know if very old school is a pleasure for me ... I tend to be a pop artist with a pop style !!! Like M D Allred or Darwin Cooke, which are each of better today comics book artists for me!

But yes trully the horror and fantasy are what i prefer !!!

I speak one time with a Marvel's Comics editor! He came in a french convention 2 years ago! He asks me to mail some pages that he liked in my book, after i'll ink them! But i lost the page before mailling him! He would want to make me do script tests ...It was a real bad time for me ... Since this time he don t answer me, maybe i make an error...

After, always in a french convention, last year, i see others comics books publishers who said me things like you, but told me if i tend to make my art more realistic, to mail them for work!

And at the end, i had the luck to talk with Mike D. Allred and his wife! These people were really lovely !!! Mike advise me to go to US convention, to make me know in body by the US publisher! And not give up to work on comic books! That i had to count with my luck because luck is really important in art !!!

He was happy to see other style than today classic comics style ! It make me pleasure! I m a big fan of his universe!


I made subscription to image comics 4 years ago, i never received an aswer... Positive or negative ...

I see. Sorry to hear about the flimsy editors/publishers. Definitely think you've got some very strong storytelling going on and a great, fun style, so I'm a bit surprised that you're not published outside of anthologies and webcomics.

Maybe we could have a chat?

PS: And do post more samples for everyone to see here. A lot of clue people with good critical eyes on this board.

Cheers!

It's funny the French editors say it's "too Americanized" -- I think many Americans would say it looks (at least a bit) European. To me it looks similar to some things I've seen in Heavy Metal, that were by European artists.

Anyway, lots of nice work IMO.. that one with the oval frame is especially striking.
