Marcel Ruijters covers Trailer Trash 8

Original cover by Roy Tompkins; Fantagraphics 1996. Marcel Ruijters's website is here.


  1. Wow! Roy Tompkins, good choice! There's an under-appreciated cartoonist if ever there was one! And the re-do is lovely, too--nice line-work--I wonder is that how Mr. Ruijters draws "naturally" or was he deliberately trying to ape Tompkins' style? Either way: DOPE SHIT

  2. Thank you! Actually, I was more or less drawing this way when Trailer Trash was still around. Then I dropped the use of brushes for about twelve years. Seriously considering picking them up now for new projects. Yep, Roy Tompkins rules. His line-work is fabulous.
