A pocket-sized collection of sketches by up-and-coming indie comics artist Martin Cendreda. The Los Angeles-based illustrator has worked on the South Park TV show and movie, but Cendreda is most proud of his Zurik Robot and Dang! mini-comics. Beginning with cute-yet-melancholy one-panel gags, his work has evolved into longer forms of storytelling that maintain his clear-yet-spontaneous style and dark humor, and he's finally made the jump from self-published, stapled-and-folded pieces to the indie comics elite. Here are pieces from his sketchbooks from 1998 to 2005.
