Fractal Friction!

Just in case you think I've been sat doing nowt well have a look here.


And you'll see Page 4 of a frankly bonkers tale is done by yours truly. Bookmark the blog - it's going to be a strange old ride!

That was close. I should really pay attention to which blog I'm posting on. Apologies, I've been away. Normal service to resume shortly. Anyway, back at my normal desk and pencilling away.

prologue page 2 pencils

So the publishers of a graphic novel I'm drawing for liked the initial sketches for characters and want to see a few finished pages. So I thought I'd post the initial pencils for one up here. Criticism and pickiness welcome! This''ll probably take me the rest of the week to finish. Except I have two days before a long weekend away. Ah well, best dust off that bottle of midnight oil! As usual, click on the image for a bigger version.

People Are Strange....

So I'm posting this for folk who don't frequent the 2000ad boards, and want to see it. and for those who do and wanted a larger version. Fnar fnar. Part of my twisted brain says I'll come back and ink this at some point. But then most of my dafter ideas materialise on a Monday morning...

And thanks again!

Death vs Superman

A 'versus' idea on the 2000ad boards prompted me to do a four panel thing, of which this would be the last. I will add it to the pile of 'stuff pending' to finish later while I try and get a graphic novel gig submission thing out of the way. Will let you know what the publishers say.

Dodgy police...

Warm-ups technically can't be done whilst watching the late film but a tale of dodgy police in the early settler period of Australia (The Proposition, good film if you're browsing the shelves), prompted me to reach for the pad and do this

Johnny Alpha as Jim Morrison...

Thought I'd chuck this in as a stop gap. It's part of a bigger picture for later that's still in progress. I'm developing a seperate style thingy for certain projects that uses more light and shade than is strictly neccessary but I like the results.

Plague doctor and patient

These rather creepy looking fellows went about examining the sick and dying but did precious little in the way of healing. Well, you're not going to be struck with confidence if your GP is dressed like this, are you?

Dissolution sketches Pt 2

Trying to get a few projects out the door this month, which is good in a way. The kind folks at the publishers want to see more of my work, so there'll be more of this....

and less of this...

But at least it's all new work . The second image is from the script I've illustrated but can't tell you much about, as noted on the last post, but I think one panel won't hurt.

...and hopefully (before Christmas?!) there should be some GN stuff here too.

...A slight interlude...

...It's suddenly occured to me that I can't show you the page I was about to post. It's for a comic that'll be printed soon and I'm merely the pencil monkey for someone else's script. So that was close. It looks good though!

In the meantime, here's a still from a storyboard I've done for a short film called Butterfly. Normal service will be resumed shortly.

Early pencils for an opening exchange between minor (?) characters. I'll be improving this tomorrow.

And we're off!

This seems as suitable a time as any to begin the blog.

Hope fully I'll be keeping up to date with a few posts a week, just so you can see how things are progressing. Expect pencils and inks and finished artwork aplenty. Just not neccessarily in that order, as the old gag goes.
