PATRICE PELLERIN L'ÉPERVIER Sink the Medusa! (T.9), Quadrants 2015 Original plate n° 13. Signed. India ink on paper 38.5 × 48.5 cm (15.16 × 19.09 in.) It's always a bit difficult in comics, when you have so few images at your disposal, to show the slow and complex maneuvers of ancient ships in a clear way for the reader. The work of sketching and documenting is always longer and more complicated than for other types of sequences. I had fun putting a huge megaphone on Pisse-Roide's back. There were even bigger ones. The English ship at the bottom of the page that shoots the Medusa, I had photographed a model of it in London at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. It's easier to get a precise idea than on a simple plan or a painting. Patrice Pellerin
