Judgement Day!

Another commission piece, this one from last year. For those not in the know, this shows Jack Kirby's grand cosmic bastard Darkseid being judged by another of Kirby's show-stopping sky gods, Arishem the Judge. Suck it, Darkseid!

I can never decide whether Kirby based the look of Arishem's head on a food processor, or if the food processor guys saw Arishem and said "guys - this is the look we're going for!"

The Baker Boys!

Another recent commission for Mr K Moorhead esq. I thought C. Baker was going to be the tough one here on account of him being a bit of a pudding (apologies if C Baker is reading this... also, I've got a nerve describing anyone else as a pudding. But at least I've got great eyebrows) and Tom has much more distinctive features. But Colin was an absolute breeze, whereas I sweated hard over Tom Baker's face. So to speak.

Another appearance from the "figure in background drawn in wash" effect, you'll notice. I love it, and I plan on using it all the time from now on.


(NB. Prints of my work will shortly be available. Email me at the address to the right if you're interested. I'm also taking commissions, so why not drop me a line if you want me to draw something for you?)

I Bring Sutekh's Gift of Death...

...to all humanity!

Another brilliant commission idea from Kevin Moorhead: Doctor Who meets Quatermass... in the tomb of Sutekh! I decided to present it as a still from a non-existent documentary on horror films of the seventies. Fun stuff.

If there's one thing I love drawing, it's explosions.

This is from that secret project which I'm working on for SPOILER Oni Press. I drew it (and the other five pages I've done for this instalment) on the worst paper I could find: real thin, coarse rubbish, three pounds per pad from Staples. Why did I do this? Cos I've noticed my work tensing up a little of late, and I wanted to work on something where I felt I could cut loose, mess about a little, and generally loosen up. And it worked! The paper is barely suitable to wipe one's arse, but I'm doing some of the best work of my life on it. Go, as they say, figure.

So that's fun, isn't it?

Anyway, look out for this, hopefully, early next year. And look out for my co-creator Patrick Keller - dude's going to be HUGE.
