Birmingham International Comics Show (BICS)

Is this coming weekend - and Accent UK (and me!) will be there to meet fellow creators and obviously spend hard earned money on comics!

I will be at the AUK stand most of the time, and when not there probably wandering around aimlessly trying to find people I made a note of meeting.

Really looking forward to this, Marleen Lowe will be there to sign copies of 'Whatever Happened to the World's Fastest Man?' and I will happily do a sketch if anyone wants one. I'm also bringing some original art to sell too, incase anyone wants any.

Just got a week of work (and another page of Wolfmen 2 to ink) to go!

More wolfmen!

Mainly as this is what I'm working on primarily - when I've done some work on stuff for Predators and the other top-secret project I'm working on with the mighty Dave West I'll post that too, just incase anyone is bored with werewolves (and who can ever really be bored with werewolves?).

This image is from an action sequence early in book 2... seems someone has shot part of this critters ear off... but who?

Wolfmen first full page!!

Not the first completed page, but one that I've shown Dave and so quite happy to put it up on here so that folk can see there is some progress!

Felt sick as a dog yesterday, so no work and no drawing... getting really behind on the schedule I wanted for WM2, and am not at the place I wanted to be for BICS. Gonna have to pull my finger out if I want his done in time for Bristol next year. Looks like it's not going to happen but I'll give it a go.

When I read Dave Hitchcock's blog and he's up to page 60 of his superb samurai story already, I feel a right slacker!

Whatever Happened To The World's Fastest Man

Is here at last. Colin very kindly mailed me some copies so I finally had chance to see it all printed in lovely colour and black and white.

It does look superb and congrats must go Dave for writing such a good story and of course Marleen, for her superb artwork. My contribution was minimal, just designing the overall look of the book to hopefully make it stand out a little, and I also drew a little pinup in it that I completely forgot to add a credit for inside the book!

As long as that was the only error in it then I'm a happy man... looking forward to launching it as BICS on the 3rd and 4th October, if you're coming, pop over and say hello - and of course buy some comics :-D

Who's afraid of the big bad...


More to be revealed soon... not a great deal done this last week... hope for better this week. BICS soon so looking forward to that. Oh and Fastest Man is done and will be in our grubby hands this week. Good times :-)

Watch out for that wheel!!

Work is done on another page of Wolfmen 2 (aka Fall of the Wolfmen)... as always there are things I wish I had time to re-draw but sometimes you just have to get it done and move to the next page... otherwise it would never get done. Quite happy with this page and this panel in particular. To find out what's going on you'll just have to buy the book when it comes out :-D

In other news Dave and Marleen's 'Whatever Happened To The World's Fastest Man?' is officially at the printers and should be back in a couple of weeks time. It's a great book, getting well deserved positive reviews and let's hope it sells as well as we think it will.
