Mantagons Concept Sketches for Curio & Co's - Spaceman Jax

Mantagon concept sketches from 2010 by Cesare Asaro for Curio & Coo.'s Spaceman Jax (Curio and Co. OG -

I was looking for some Spaceman Jax designs for Red and… I bumped into these concept sketches for the Mantagons I did in 2010.  At the time we brought on Luca Fattore to work on the development of some of the characters and help to set the style of the project.  It really was a great experience working collaboratively. Luca and I were on design and the Kirstie from the content side.  I had previously done some initial work on the characters: Jax, Dekkin, and the Mantagons, which we passed on to Luca and within a couple of month of back and forth of design revisions we had Jax and the Mantagons locked in.

Since then we developed more characters and other products of the Curio & Co. universe, and also published a total of 5 books one of which features Jax as a main character: Spaceman Jax - Through the Mantagon Minefield. It's been quite a ride so far…

Time flies!

So many projects to realize such little time.

Back to work…
