It has been a proper busy time lately, and feeling slightly gloomy that the post count this month was pretty slim i've piled some in today. I've been doing day jobs, drawing jobs, shifting sacks of masonry and sorting busted windscreens today. This last post for the day is two panels from a 9 page strip for Mikolaj Spionek's 'Pirate' anthology, he's been waiting ages for it and it should be the next thing done, I hope.

I am currently busy with boring day jobs and smugly secret drawing jobs so he's some I did earlier.
In 1995/6 I filled up an A5 Seawhite sketchbook with a cowboy story, entirely drawn in brown pilot pen (3 or 5).
It was a Cowboy Treasure story that simply wandered off into a sketchbook of loads of wild west characters mucking about.
I saw it in the loft today when i was putting the tent away.
Might post some more, maybe have another go at the adventure.

I found this from 1998/99. I was working in a sleepy seaside printers, knocking out Itinery's for the WI and Masonic Hall and business cards for builders and cleaners. While no one was looking I did this on the ropey old photocopier. I had to change the toner cartridge for the colour changes. It's the only one, I wish i'd done more.

Just found this from the 1 year blog party last year. One of the surfing pirates looking unimpressed talking to Brian of the Astronomers.
Note Fred's screen-print over the fake mantlepiece, the Horny Rhino print and Karma Sutra print that are also in that frame but rarely get put on view.

I'm afraid i'm late to report the loss of The Comic in The Guardian, the last one was on saturday, ending the same weekend as The DFC (whose strips made up a fair portion of The Comic). It's been great fun being asked, more on than off, to draw for The Comic this last year or so and i've had a great time. I shall now look forward to whatever happens next.
The DFC guys are keeping their pencils warm (at the very least) in blog form.
Many thanks to Emma and Perri for letting me do it and 'High Five!' Jonathan-E who got all the good drawings in. And everybody else.
