Dream Solver: EBook Preview

Finally posted a new preview for Dream Solver, you can read through here:
Myebook - Dream Solver - click here to open my ebook
Meanwhile i'm going to sit in the corner to cringe and wait on whatever comments may get thrown in. please leave crits or comments if you have time.
This is the book that propelled me into the comics realms, so there is a lot of finding my comfort zone both technically and stylistically so i think my style has a lot to be desired, although i am happy with most and i think i've stepped it up a notch as the book goes on....but you'll have have to wait and see about that. anyway enjoy.
Big thanks to Luke for waiting out on me to get things done on my end, and to Lauren for jumping into the pot midway and making it look even better.
Also keep checking the Dream Solver Blog for more updates!

Time-Lapse Video: Stuff Bot

just got wind of a time video of me doing a sketch for Stuff Magazine. I did my first sign and sketch session last week at Orbital Comics in Leicester Square last week (sorry forgot to post info about that..nerves) but before the session Luke from Stuff Magazine asked me to do a sketch for the online magazine and to film it with some flashy tech. so here it is the ...."Stuff Bot".... literally did it on the spot and a short time to film so that my excuse for any mess. anyway Enjoy:

Also the guys at Orbital where kind enough get me on their Podcast show, i had a really good laugh with them for a few minutes while they asked me some stuff about how i got on True Grit and general who what when and why about me. unfortunately the sound quality ended up pretty naff so hopefully going in to do another quick Q&A soon so i'll post up that i they ever let me back on for a mumble.
I had a really awesome first time sketch session at Orbital on the behalf of the Guys at the CataWiki site so a nice little shout out to them. but i'll go into that session more in another post because i need some space to babble on about that properly. meanwhile, thanks to those who showed up had a chat and watched me sketch like a nervous chimp.

Sketch: Paradox Malt

My done thing at the moment seems to be coming across characters and stories i like and then having the burning urge to want to draw them. i guess it was inevitable that one of Mike Sizemore's characters jumped in front of me, put her gun to my head and POW! made me draw her.
Anyway here's is a sketch of Merica Adams from a spiffing 5minute short Sizemore and his team put together: PRECISION they put the film together in a mere 48 Hours. from working in the Film scene myself, both on sets and from the drawing board i know that is no easy task having so little time to get something looking so good.
A big factor that made me want to draw the character was the awesome sketches by Dave kennedy that came up at the credits depicting Merica in some bad ass situations. Nazi dinosaur = Very very Cool.
Also some behind scenes stuff here. Nice work guys *doffs cap/bow*

Quick note. accidentally deleted the character layer and found this version quite nice, hurm....
