Elemetal My Dear Professor!

Just digging through some stuff from last year and came across this pin up I did for the Professor Elemental comic issue 2.



Thought it might be fun to share!
Loved doing that 'Fighting Trousers' bit at the bottom.
Anyway, must dash! Off to go have a nice cup of brown joy...

The Pride!

Hey, hey!
I've been getting in the coloured pages of my latest short on The Pride comic. The pages are being given a whole other life by the fantastic Ben Wilsonham on colours. I  think this is Ben's first time colouring comic pages beside his own work but he's knocking it out of the park! My short piece should be in the next issue of The Pride Adventures.
 Check out the facebook page of The Pride news and updates on the book.

2014 Kicking Off With A Punch To The Balls!

I've been really quiet online recently because I've had my head down deep into the work. Just tied up some freelance concept work, A short piece for The Pride and my short piece for In The Dark Anthology and then jumped straight into the concepts of Bone China (aka Porcelain Part deux)
Should hopefully be starting pages on that by next week! so well and truly kicked off 2014 with a punch in the balls!
Oh and speaking of In The Dark I came across some snippets of my piece all nicely coloured by Felipe Sobreiro and the icing of the lettering cake by Rachel Deering!

Briar In The Bag and Into The Dark We Go!

Hey ho!

Just a quick update.

I can happily say with a sigh of relief from both myself and my drawing hand, that Briar: Part 1 is in the bag and now is in the capable hands of Jordan Boyd for his colouring mastery!

No sooner had I finished that I had to jump into my short for In The Dark Anthology titled 'The Guillotines' Written by Michael Moreci and being coloured by Felipe Sobreiro. I'm honored to have been teamed up with those guys. The story is an awesome 80's teen monster hunter type story and I've had SO much fun with it.
I'm just tying up the last few pages of inks right now, Meanwhile I got a sweet little peek at Felipe's colours last night and I'm so excited for the rest of the pages here's a taster:




 Also here's some bits from my Instagram Feed:

Prices are:
1 x A4 Penciled and Inked character piece - £30 (add extra £5 for additional characters)
1 x A4 Head Sketch - £15

I'll be doing free pencil sketches in copies of Porcelain and Butterfly Gate if you'd like one :)
