OLIVIER VATINE ◊ AQUABLUE Nao (T.1), Delcourt 1988 Original plate no. 32. Signed. India ink and white gouache on paper 38.9 × 50.1 cm (15.31 × 19.72 in.) This action scene is the centerpiece of the first volume of Aquablue. At the time - the '80s - I never missed a theatrical release of an American blockbuster, and my cutting was heavily influenced by McTiernan, Spielberg, Carpenter and the like. I worked to transpose the energy of their mise en scène onto paper, trying to place my "camera" judiciously. The 9-square waffleboard, the axes, the frame - in retrospect, I think I did pretty well. The sequence doesn't end well for Fritz. Olivier Vatine
