A panel from Apes four - girl punches man. HARD.


Pope and his apes from issue four of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. This is from a page that I didn't have time to rough beforehand, so I just went straight to the page with pencil then ink. It was quite a fun, instinctive way to work, not entirely recommended as it was also very stressful, but it came out nice for the lack of over-thinking.

You can see some of the changes I made during the ink stage, removing some figures, adding others and a few extra details. This is going to be an interesting panel to colour, I think.

Absolutely love drawing this guy. I don't think he "exists" at the moment, which is a shame. 


A little look at what's on my drawing board today. Spoiler: it's Apes

To my astonishment, that new Fantastic Four trailer looks incredible. A genuinely unexpected take on the classic Marvel family. It's portentous, ponderous and bloviated, but undeniably rich and intriguing, with surprising horror overtones. Similar in style to X-Men Days of Future Past. So similar, in fact,  I'm expecting a post credits teaser featuring Magneto.

This is all just preamble for me to post this, of course:

Sunday Apes

Really pleased with my inks in this one.

Constant(ine) craving

Quick John "Hellblazer" Constantine sketch from a while back. Not altogether sure if the colour approach works here, but I like it well enough.

Flash and substance

I drew it, then Ferocious Nathan Fairbairn coloured it. Fairbairn's subtle, sympathetic approach takes my breath away - love it.

Hot Ape Chat

A panel from today's Planet of the Apes work. Into the ink phase of the issue now - my actual favourite.

Head to Head

One of my favourite scenes from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes issue four. A quiet, sad moment between Malcom and his missus. Much as I love drawing bombast, action and asplosions, I like the quieter stuff too.


Can't wait till they do Gorilla Grodd


How much am I enjoying the Flash on Sky One? The answer is: SO MUCH. There are minor flaws - the girl who plays Iris West is insanely annoying and it's often a bit too neat/cute. But it's also well acted, exciting and occasionally even kind of scary (their version of the Reverse Flash is a real terror)
So, I like it a lot. And I drew the lead guy from it. Whatshisname. The Streak.
