Brudders 076 Carmen Act IV

I hope you enjoyed our adaptation of Carmen.

I’d been wanting to adapt Carmen ever since Alisa took me to see the Los Angeles Opera production back in 2008. It was the first time I saw an opera performed live on stage and it made a huge impression on me. Eight years later, I finally got around to figuring out how to write and draw these strips.

Here are some of the costume designs.

And the roughs for the comic.

You may have noticed that the knife doesn’t exist in any of the sketches. It was added as an afterthought. Originally, I didn’t think it was necessary to show the murder weapon but changed my mind the day after I drew the strip.

If you’ve never seen the opera and get a chance to, I highly recommend it. Personally, I’d love to go to another one some day but it’s really just too expensive for me.
