From the Comics Desk...

So I'm prepping Sidekick #1 which will be in stores September now, a month later than anticipated, but I hope it's worth the wait...

I am working on Sidekick #2 to get ahead of myself, even though I am planning to release an issue bi-monthly as I have a day job and all that jazz...just trying to squeeze everything in that I want to get done so I thought a bi-monthly book would be slightly less pressure!

To keep you going, here are a few snippets of panel pics from issue #2...fresh!

Drawn using Manga Studio, and a Wacom styling!

Check out this new ISSUU

Been experimenting with the Issuu website I joined for turns PDF versions of my books into digital flip books!! It's brilliant and I think I will be using it from now on to display my comics. I am so happy with the quality of the read and the layout it provides that it means my comics will be available FREE on the blog but will cost to get in print (only £2 or so, so still really well worth it to have a print version for old time sake!)...!

Check out the PRELUDE I did a few months ago...I originally posted it as separate pages, but this issuu has really made it cool with the page turning and full screen effect!

SIDEKICK #1 out this month!!

Story boards!

So some slightly different project news...I've been working with Bloody Cuts who, if you take a look at their site, are currently creating 13 short horror films (3-4 minutes plus in length) and I have been drafted to help them with visuals for their stories.

Mostly I have been brought on board for my story telling prowess in comics to create story boards for them, but also I have been and hopefully shall continue to create some creature/monster designs.

Not wanting to give too much away, I will be posting story board illustrations from some of the less-action orientated scenes to show you all my sequence ideas and the way I go about story boarding. There isn't really a right way or wrong way to do it. For my methods I use 3 page-wide comic-style panels to suggest widescreen. It's not actual widescreen ratios, but it's close and quick to create to help the director get an impression on camera angles and shot sequences.

Check out some of these below and their website too...going to be some good stuff happening pretty soon so stay tuned!
