New Bertie Badges

The Activity #12 is out now.

Posted by on 4th May , 2013

 

 

The Activity #12 was released this past Wednesday (May 1st).

Over the past month, I’ve been working as an Assistant Colour Artist on this comic and it’s been awesome. I’ve been a big fan of Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads’ creation since issue 1 and was excited to get the chance to work on it. I’ve just wrapped working on issue 13 which is due out at the end of the month. Keep an eye out for it.


 

 

INSANE ADVENTURES #15!!

Posted by on 12th April , 2013

Ok, so there isn’t a a #1-14 but hey. My new character, The Robot Gentleman debuts in the pages of Dead Universe’s free comic book day release, so I thought I’d knock up this retro cover ready for it. Once I knocked up the line art, it was into Photoshop for colour flatting, something I’ve done a lot of recently (The Activity #12, out on Image April/May ;) ), then real colours, then down to making it look all retro. There are some great art blogs out there that can show you how to get all these effects and what not. If you fancy giving it ago, google comic book old texture’s or something like that. You’ll find stuff. :)

Deadpool Pin Up!

Posted by on 20th March , 2013

Been reading a lot of Deadpool recently, kind of had to do it. Then Mr Matt Rooke of Apes ‘N’ Capes comes along, colours it and makes it 100 x’s better (as he does).

DemonCon 5 update.

Posted by on 20th March , 2013

So this weekend was DemonCon 5 in Maidstone, ran by the ever so awesome Graham Beadle, owner of the Grinning Demon comic shop in the town. I was there with my fellow Dead Universe Publishing family, Mr Jon Scrivens of Little Terrors, and the duo of Grainne McEntee and Matthew Rooke of Apes ‘N’ Capes. It was an intimate and highly enjoyable event where I got a chance to meet a lot of other artists and writers. It’s probably my favourite thing about doing Comic Cons, no matter what the size of them, hanging out with friends, meeting new people, exchanging ideas and oh yeah, the comics!! Below are a few sketches, pin ups and commissions that I’ve done within the last week or 2. Take a look! 

Heavy Duty

Heavy Duty DemonCon commission. First GI Joe related sketch I’ve done. I kind of wish I’d inked it, but I was pretty happy with it over all.

Spider-Bear

Spider-Bertie!!: I sketch I did at DemonCon. Every character is better when mashed up with a bear!

Zissou

Join Team Zissou! 

Bertie Sketchbook

At DemonCon there was an awesome lady who could make any comic into a sketchbook. I thought it rude not to get a Bertie book done!

Spider-Man animated test – Classic Hand drawn 2D (And drawing)

Posted by on 4th March , 2013

I haven’t done classic hand drawn on paper animation for a long time and the retro animation/light box desk we have a work was too awesome to ignore.

Also, I did this Spidey drawing today. I can’t stop drawing him lately, such a fun character.

Updates and London Super Comic Con

Posted by on 2nd March , 2013

So just over a week ago was the London Super Comic Con and it was AWESOME. I got to hangout with my Dead Universe Publishing family, meet heroes of mine and meet new friends. That event also saw the release of issue 1 of Bertie Bear and the Dagger of a Thousand Souls!! A big moment for me to have my first ever comic out that I’d both illustrated and written. It sold pretty well, but the high light was meeting lots of people and doing Comic Con sketches for people.

I wish I’d taken photos of them, luckily I took a couple of snaps of a few of the sketches I did for the first 10 pre-orders. See below!
