Today, I have been getting on with some commission work as well as a few pieces just for me. This main one is of Leonard Nimoy, a person who has been a hero of mine longer than I can remember.
He passed away a few days ago and I, like so many, felt the need to pay tribute to a man who has given so much of himself to others for so long.
RIP Leonard Nimoy.
A few of my pages from the up coming horror comic anthology – “The Samurai Slasher“. I LOVED working on this project.
I approached these pages in a completely different way from all the past projects I’ve worked on.
If you want to check out a preview of the project, that also includes all 10 pages from the story I illustrated, check out the preview on Bleeding Cool.

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.
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.
