sequential art and drawings by Bela Messex

Here you'll find my drawings, comics, gifs and every so often a thought or two. I'm LA based. You can find my zines in select comic book shops across the country.
this sketch is probably a combination of listening to the onslaught of ebola news and playing too many hours of space themed video games.

Here’s a peak at my latest sketchbook compilation zine “the earth worm”. In it, you’ll find character studies, background sketches, unfinished comic segments and half thought out word bubbles all put together (hopefully) in its own kind of cohesive chaos. If you missed me at LA Zine Fest all the way back in february, you can pick one up at Meltdown Comics in LA.

More from the old sketchbook. These are drawings i did from my iphone on the airplane in mid may with a brush pen. Turns out, pressure at 30,000 feet causes the ink reservoir to gush out, so lots of black is the only option.  The middle one’s a selfie.

"LAST YEAR"……Thanks again to my friend jenna (morningriser.tumblr.com) for the beautiful story and super thweet collaboration. Coming up next… zines! 

I stole this story from my friend hannah’s tumblr page (http://www.hannahmight.tumblr.com) . I’ve been using my friends’ writing for my comics lately. I find that we share the same experiences, thoughts, fears and whatever else… they just write it out better than i ever could. so thanks friends!

I took my friend jenna’s  tumblr post (http://morningriser.tumblr.com/) and using her  text made this short comic about riding through san francisco.

Wouldn’t it be great if yur thoughts just calmly orbited around yur head like space debris? Ink boy thinks so.
