Having been almighty busy of late I did not get to doing the 'Halloween' story I was planning this year. And having tackled a self imposed Deadline Bootcamp plus Half Term family trip, I still did not get a thorough All Hallows post together. This is a Cornish ghost that I drew in the car on the way home today (Mrs Warwick was driving)

Following hi jinx last week initiated by Lawless, Jonathan-E did a wonderful Loose Canon, who is here (smaller than he should be so give him a click). But what is his relationship is to The Nun with Two Guns? Partner? Boss? Nemesis?
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world Monkeyfeather brought out the big guns with a real uzi packin' Sister.
Missed the deadline for observer graphic novel competition for a second time this year. After a weekend of work I couldn't manage 4 full pages overnight then take them by hand to the Big Bad City today. But i've now reviewed my ramshackle work ethic and timetable for the better. So, here's a warm up, now onto the drawing.
And i'll stick that new 4 pager at the end of my 'to do' list.

The last thing I bought before a panic race for the train were the remaining Criminal trades which I got for a song from Sean Phillips. And signed.
Cracking hard boiled stuff! Needless to say I haven't done it justice.
Just as well this is the last of the BICS bits.
This weeks fan art posts have kept the blog going along while am finishing my contribution to the Birdsong/Songbird anthology. The Big Chiefs of the production shared a busy looking table at BICS. Will Kirkby's character is the old fella in the hat who appears in his Birdsong strip and Lou Ho/ Naniiebim's is the character from her Mephistos books. I wanted to do one of the characters from her Birdsong strip but there are only a couple in it and I didn't want to spoil the surprise.

I got to the Eclectic Micks table on sunday to say hello! I got an EM sketchbook of the guys and a copy of 28 Days Later off Declan Shalvey, unfortunately not a sketch which I'm regretting now. I also got to congratulate PJ Holden (again without a sketch) for his part in the fantastic Sunnyside Comics Podcast which he shares with Scott Ferguson and Ron Abernethy. It's a cracking one stop shop for all things Comics, PJ, Magic and Kays catalogue abuse.
Yo-Yo and Kid Yo-Yo (my attempt at characters invented by PJ Holden at 10 yrs of age) tackle one of The Infected (without the need for trees!)

Meanwhile, the same time I was at BICS, MFKiG was kicking off in Lodz, Poland, and I got my first comic story in print. As part of the New British Comics #2 which will be available in English later this year. Big thanks to Karol Wisniewski for asking me to join in.
Here's the first (title) page of the ten of Ragnar's Charm.
