Anthony was “very, very pleased with the poster”.

February 14, 2015 Test page for Blake and Mortimer presented to Editions Dargaud by Theo van den Boogaard
Two years after Editions Dargaud’s request to Theo van den Boogaard to make a test page of their series Blake and Mortimer, Van den Boogaard finally delivered his work.
The page that Dargaud committed to Van den Boogaard came from the same scenario which was already in production by André Juillard, which resulted in his recent publication Le bâton de Plutarque. Long before that date, Van den Boogaard had already made the overall layout and the execution of this page. In its reaction, Dargaud now states that the publishing house has much respect and admiration for the graphical qualities of Van den Boogaard’s test page, but that they wish to continue the series in a more realistic style than Van den Boogaard has presented.
For quite some time already, Van den Boogaard has been working on part two of his “Theo Bogart, BOB DYLAN ILLUSTRATED” and production steadily continues. He is also currently working on mural decorations in the Nederlands Kanker Instituut (Dutch Cancer Institution) in Amsterdam.
