Oh my goodness, one thing I never really notice was that I forgot to put up my Lost boys card art. I made this last year for a horror film exhibition in Sheffield, I know I put up the progress work but never put up the final thing, so here it is.

 The idea was to do a postcard of the location from a horror film, I got given the lost boys which I wasn’t too familiar with, but had a go at doing the fairground for it.

 Let just say that this was one of my more detailed card art and it nearly broke me. I’d say it took me nearly two weeks to make this (on and off from going to work), but the final prints of it look great! that’s all w ended to know…right!

Saw that the dragonsonas is doing the rounds and I did a tiny sketch of one the other day, I have done ones for the other sons just don’t have them to hand. These are fun little things to draw when you are having a slump, from this I thought it would be good practice at doing some quick digital inking and colour (which I am not all that good at), but hey ho I knocked this one out. Plus I having been colouring in some last of us prints which don’t have my usual colour palette and it’s super nice to get the bright colours out again!

So in between doing comic pages for Honeydew I managed to finish the Last of us, which meant that i could FINALLY look at the art book. Yet again another fine little book (thanks Rob), but that also means that I have some super reference for some prints I want to do of it.

 I would like to do both a Joel print and an Ellie print (both are great characters) and means I can do a sort of summer / winter theme. This is the Joel version complete with clickers (which shouldn’t be fun to draw but so are).Not the best picture I know but if I don’t put this up now i’ll forget and nothing will happen with it. Booo

I thought I would put up my little haul from Thought Bubble. What a super convention, although I am now bloody tired and ill, I didn’t have all that much money on me but still managed to spend a lot.

I got to meet Brandon Graham which was one of the highlights of the con for me, (he’s one of my top artist and one of the reason why I got into making my own comics), he was super lovely and spent so much time doing me some drawings, it was chuffin ace!. I asked him if he could draw my paper-armed cyclops monster (Terra-Cota) which I hope would be a little different and what an amazing version of her, I couldn’t be happier. I also painted him a watercolour (as a nerdy thanks) in which he than gave me some original artwork (which blew my mind), so going to get that framed ASAP.

 I also picked up Becky and Franks new book which is a gem in the collection, Rob also got me a print of theirs too (I had a hard time choosing which one mind) so went for the red panda.

Also picked up a sloth print and a sticker from John Allison who also drew Rob a really good Frank Zappa, New Noonan from Marc Ellerby, My kickstarted epic of Cat and Meringue By Nich Angell, Amusing Puns by Gemma Correll and two comics by Meredith Gran. Looks like I have a fair bit of reading to do but I can’t wait, I’ve been needing some good books for a while now and these fit the bill perfectly.

 It’s been such a good con, Rob came to his first one and he picked up soo much good stuff as well, I am really glad he came to it. Also big ups to Jen/Josh/Rhiannon and Becks my table crew and everyone else who I said hello to, Great con guys!

Hooray, I finished the Metroid Piece for the Retro games exhibition at the Wick.

 I actually really enjoyed doing this, cop aired to the Lost boys one (which broke me a little) this was a nice little simple idea to do. Whilst doing this I tried some different things which helped out a lot .

 I do want to make some prints of these but they won’t be ready for Thought Bubble, But will put them up on my shop as soon as they are ready.

Anywho… Enjoy!

Working on an idea for a Metroid card art for a retro game exhibition that’s taking place at the Wick at both ends in Sheffield, I’ve had this idea for a while now and I’ve been thinking of doing a Metroid card art for a few months, so this is the perfect opportunity to do it. I just hope that it all comes out A-OK.

Sorry for the rubbish photograph but pretty much a spare of the moment thing

Oh man, I think I have finally finished the cover to the Volume 2 reprint, boy am I fed up of looking at this. I have been playing around with some new brushes for this but seems to be going ok….I hope.

 Anywho, hopefully I will try and get this ready for MCM expo next week, I got to go through and  check my spelling cause we all know how bad I am at that!

ENJOY!!!

Currently redoing the cover to volume two of Herald Owlett, finally finding my groove with it after a long time not getting it, hopefully should be done soon.

I was at NERD fest over the weekend which was super fun, nice to see Nottingham finally have it’s own comic convention. Really cool to see peeps and getting into to the flow of cons again.

Really good to hang out with Nich and Ali, and always good to see Lou again, thanks for a great weekend!
