Here's my take on a character created by Carl Peck. A crazy, coffee obsessed private detective in Cambridge!

Perm & Superglue

Hey anybody who reads my blogs!! Here is Page 1 comic book I'm working on! It's just a tester at the mo' so the lettering/fonts aren't final. Should be out towards the Autumn, but I make no promises!!

The Meaning of Life

A request from me pal, Smudge. This is my reponse to her topic 'The Meaning of Life'. I was watching that Doctor Who episode, series 2 of the new version (David Tennant/Billie Piper), where they were on a planet which apparently had the Devil on it!! I switched it around to open up more questions than it actually answers.

Illustration Part2

Stage 2 is colouring my black and white image while my painted background is drying (now see below!)...
...and this is stage 3 of the illustration with the added background, in my silhouette style a tree on a hill - yes it's Lucas Scott off of One Tree Hill!!

Illustration Part1

This is stage one of a project...Stage 2 will be up when I get back home from work! It is a drawing of someone from off of a telly porgram, any guesses??

Free Comic Book Day

So...I went to the comics shop on Saturday morning, a little later than I wanted to, but I picked up some free comics and also bought some too! There were 6 free comics left! There were 10 different issues available that stores HAD to stock and 33 comics that stores could stock if they wanted to...! Oh well. There's always next year!!

Panel 2 Panel

An interesting day today! I started my course on comic book storytelling, 'Panel2Panel', with 9 year 7 and 8, (11, 12, 13 years old) students from Peacehaven Community School where I also work as an Art Technician! No pictures just yet but we did start a comic jam (the kind you can check out on Linoleum Press) and the kids also drew a lot whilst I was talking about comics and they were looking/reading all the examples I brought in to show and use as influence and information! I think they had a real good time and also it was something different for some of them to do in a school environment, with all the other stuff they consider a negative to be dealing with at their age, they can really 'let go' in these classes! I saw some of these guys be themselves more in my class then they have been elsewhere! Real enthusiasm and excitement from them! I'm dead chuffed!!

More soon!

By the way, like I said to the guys on my course, it's Free Comic Book Day on Saturday so make sure you get down to your local comic shop to pick yours up! (buy some too mind you!)
