Here comes the fuzz!

A snippet of a page from Alex di Campi's Ashes. I love drawing SWAT guys!

Latveria's favourite son in some borderline upskirt action. Why, you can almost see his Cosmic Cube!



She Ain't Buyin' It

A panel from Time Share - coming soon.

I completely botched today's page, so I made it up to myself by drawing Devil Dinosaur and Moonboy. 

Really wanted to work the monolith from 2001 in there as well, but couldn't figure it out. Ah well - next time.

Goddamn, I loved doing this. Jack Kirby, you were the best.

She's on the Phone...

A panel from Alex de Campi's forthcoming ASHES. I've seen some of the other art in this book and I must say it looks BLOODY LOVELY so far.

Glasgow Comic Con

Dan’s too busy to write up his visit to the Glasgow con so I, in my role as Best Girlfriend Ever, am doing it for him.

It’s a fairly small con but the guest list was excellent – Rufus Dayglo, Alan Grant, Jon Haward, Grant Morrison, Frank Quitely, Jim Starlin, John Wagner, as well as various small press publishers. 

Dan before the crowds

Loads of people came for sketches and poor old Dan didn’t stop all day – 40 sketches by 3pm! Suffice to say, he was knackered by the end of it, but still a happy bunny. We sold out of sketchbooks and met some very nice people - including Twitterfriends Mark Toner and Colin Bell. Here are some of Dan's sketches from that day:



Commissioner Gordon

Dan, Rufus and Jon


Drawing Matt Smith

Man-Thing in progress

The finished Man-Thing

Hellboy pencils

Robin and Superman

Drawing the Hulk



Love that Joker!

Cosplayers - Scottish Spider-Man with Storm

On a break outside the venue and another sketch for a nice man and his son. 

Request of the day goes to Colin Bell for asking for Dan’s own character- Sky-Knight (watch this space!) 

Captain America

Last sketch of the day – Spider-Man/Peter Parker 

Thanks to everyone who came along to chat and who bought a sketchbook. Also to Sha Nazir for organising the event and inviting us.


Optimist Prime

When I was a kid, the Transformers looked a lot less shiny than they do these days. John Ridgeway and Mike Collins' take on the big metal tramps was especially gnarly, with Ridgeway's looking almost like wood at times. I loved that - that extra bit of British texture made the Transformers mythos smaller, more mundane, but also somehow more magic. Anyway, with that in mind, I drew Optimus Prime:

Roll out!

A snippet of today's Time Share work. This is me trying to get away from the - to my mind - rather fey line I'm getting from my brush at the moment. I'll probably go back to the brush at some point - I've spent too long mastering it to give up on it now - but I'm very pleased with how this came out. This bit was made using PITT brush pens, PITT superfine pen, chunky black marker, crayon and zipatone. Blimey!

The rest of the page will be visible very, very soon...
