Ware inspires

Gabriel Gobrera Sastre is a Spanish illustrator and cartoonist who has an ongoing strip in the über-hip Ling Magazine (it’s so hip it ain’t got no website of its own). As sources of inspiration, he cites Charles Schulz, John Satanley (Little Lulu), Elsie Segar, Gary Taxali (obviously), but above all Seth and Chris Ware.

The strip above, which is one of the latest for Ling, explicitly is meant as a homage to Ware and Seth, who renewed and strengthened his interest in present comics. I quite like it, even though I haven’t got the faintest clue what’s going on – the page layout is very tight and inventive, and the dark and threatening atmosphere is very clear.
