DeGrub is coming!

This is a teaser image for a character I've had floating around in my head for a year or two. I'm attempting to work it up into a usable occasional comic strip. You can keep tabs on my efforts right here!

The 2000AD advent calendar.

This is my contribution to this years 2000AD forum advent calendar. Each day, a forum member (or two) take it in turns to post a little something for the rest of the forumites to enjoy, be it a drawing, photo, animation...anything! You can see the thread containing all the lovely stuff at the 2000AD forum, right here!

Below is the rough for this pic. It was pencilled very small, scanned, parts repositioned, enlarged and printed out at the desired size for inking by hand. Then those inks were scanned back in, cleaned up and coloured with Coral Painter. Phew!

Some old colouring work from yeeeeaaaars ago!

I was talking to a friend at work the other day about the new Sonic the Hedgehog game on PS3 that my 4 year old daughter Autumn loves to watch me play (that's my excuse, anyway....) and it reminded me of this old strip I coloured for the Sonic Comic, or rather a Sonic Poster comic back in the early/mid Nineties. I had a scoot around at home, but sadly I can't find my copy. I found it online, though. Next best thing, I suppose. It's strange, seeing this after all these years.... The fantastic art is by Mike Hadley. Great stuff.

This is my artblog contribution for this week. Subject : SHAKARA!
He's a great character, but quite hard to draw. There have been some cracking attempts over at the blog, here Conor Boyles being my favourite so far. Really interesting take on the grey and red fella. Below is an earlier quicker sketch of Shakara, drawn for Dirk Vandoms Christmas Advent calender story. Great fun. ;-P

WTF is Dr WTF?!....?

Heres a wee sneek peek of a one pager drawn for upcoming Dr Who fanzine, 'Dr WTF?!'.
The comic is the brain child of editor Owen Watts, who has assembled a veritable flock of writers and artists to submit wild, alternative versions of the good Doctor.
Writer Alan Holloway and myself were teamed up by Owen. It was lots of fun to draw, so cheers to Alan for coming up with an enjoyable little tale. The Facebook page for 'Dr WTF?!', which contains some more preview images and the latest info on the comic can be found here....
