This was the strip that Shaun Avery (writer) and myself contributed to the 2000AD messege boards secret project, as organised by the Legendary Shark. The project was a huge book of fan, and some pro, artwork and goodwill messeges, all collated into a book which was then sent to artist Carlos Ezquerra, who recently had a lung removed due to cancer. Carlos was allways a favourite of mine as a child and still amazes with his artwork to this day. A true hero to me.
The page was drawn at A4 size, coloured traditionally with inks and a brush.

I was having a clearout at home and found some old pics. This one was a 'flyer', that I posted to several comics. Its dated 1995. Old! The idea was that this flyer fitted neatly into a regular envelope, thus bypassing the slush pool and having more chance of getting in front of the editors eyeballs. It did the trick. It pays to be sneeky sometimes, heh. :-P

Recently dug out my old portfolio, which contained lots of stuff I had forgotten about over the years. I'll post some of the more...bizarre stuff later, but here are two pages from a Dredd sample. They are about 10 yeqars old now. The B+W page is first (could'nt work out how to re-arrange this post!).

I recently found a mint copy of the Judge Dredd Mega-special, from 1993. This issue contains my first paid work, a Judge Hershey story called "hov bus blues", written by the fantastic Robbie Morrison, creator of Nikolai Dante. I had a real nightmare drawing this, as the two things I was'nt confident in drawing, women and vehicles were the two main ingredients of the story! I actually drew the whole thing twice, as then editor David Bishop did'nt like the first panel. Or the fact that she had her helmet on during the whole thing!
