Pub Diver

Bit of a lazy post but i've done more than one a day this month. He's a pencil drawing stuck to the other side on the pint glass's condensation.

Or is he wandering in the lime and soda. Would have been beer but I was at work.


Sherl and John out.

Working on a different submission

A long and slow development, this one. Older than our kids.


Working on a submission

These guys might be getting a bullet from The Nun.


Wild Things

Right, now that's out of my system, on with some work.


Switched back to pencil and Pshop for this one.



No time for drawing til the very end of day and I decided to try brush and ink for a change.



I hadn't read a Daredevil comic for a very long time but got one 'added' to my latest comic pick up (a fairly complicated and unusual system). I'd forgotten how much I loved the character, And though I hadn't a clue what was going on I might have to get the next one.

Lazy monday morning post.


The Nun With Two Guns

Sometime soon, there will be an explanation for all this.

And I forgot to link to James Corcoran's Nun. I've linked to the blog rather than the post on it's own so you can enjoy his Leopard of Lime St. on the way down to his nun.


Thought Bubble

Saturday I'm going to Thought Bubble so I can see copies of NBC#2 being frantically sold on the Smallzone Comic stand where it's available. I'll be lurking unattached to any where trying to encourage people to buy one. Leonie O'Moore, fellow NBC'er has a table there and further fellow NBC'er Tony Hitchman may also be present.
The Birdsong/ Songbird anthology (which has my 'palindromatic story' will not be there as hoped but will be along at later date, and worth the wait judging by what's coming along. And some of it's organisers and contributers will be about too.
Hopefully, i'll have a bunch of small Ragnar sketches with me to sell to pay for the petrol home.


Keep on the Sunnyside

Just listened to this weeks Sunnyside podcast which was a great as ever, even a little more so as 'I' got mentioned (favourably) which made my morning. So I had a brief go at Yo Yo and kid Yo Yo's YoFO which was a bit hurried but everything else got pushed out of the way for a bit.

This is my first go at the father and son crime-fighting duo from a while ago, invented by the 10 year old PJ Holden, and here is the first go at The YoFO

Go and subscribe to the podcast if you haven't already for all the comic opinion you need (apart from this of course). 2 weeks now without Kay's catalogue abuse!

Walrus Man/ Ponda Baba/ Bumface

Sadly found chewed to bits on the boys bedroom floor this morning. Messier job than Old Ben ever did.


Big O, Little A.

Today's been a rotten drawing day so I took a big swerve to get one done.


Always time at work for boredom

Though I was in the pub I was also technically at work (hence the lemonade). I found myself drawing people (in this case an Eskimo Babe) and then photographing them through the bottom of my glass.


It's been a while.

Maybe i've been neglecting the Wrestlers.

Nun Con Dos Pistolas

And two pistol packin' links, Marco emailed me this beauty and Rob posted a real classic (and speedy one too)

Go and do a Nun with 2 Guns.



Gungle. Trumpet Migration

The Tribe of One observes the trumpet migration from a safe distance.

Process, skip to the end.

Process Progress

A bit more.

It's struck me that this is unlike most other pictures of mine as it's not getting done in one sitting. Having scanned the pencil I mess with the 'curves' in Pshop, sidestepping any inking! Then try out putting in colour. This time starting with texture from two of my favourite sources, a page of red ink and crayon scanned and a photo of some pals in a Belgian bar.

And see where it takes me.


The Nun With Two Guns . .

. . . . she's on a mission.



Been at work all day then went to Granny's with the family where she cooked chicken with bananas and sweetcorn.


New British Comics #2 out now.

The third of three anthologies I've contributed this year but the first to go out. Available now at Bad Press and should be at the Smallzone stand at Thought Bubble in a few weeks. 15 strips by 19 artists in both English and Polish (I love seeing my strip in Polish) all wrangled together by Karol Wisniewski. Link to all artist links here. But i'd recommend a peep here, here and here.
Great to do, the story itself (a robbery/haunted house adventure) had been lurking around for years. Anyone that gets one or has read it, I'd love to know what you think.



Seemingly out of now where I ended up with a Scrooge sketch in the moley today. Perhaps, with the worry of how that impeding Jim Carrey film might upset the memory what is a true Muppet classic.

This is a coloured camera photo of the sketch. Something i'd not thought of before.

Process Post Part 2

Here we are with the process post. Got the a6 rough page, boosted it up to a4 then drew it through (in best) in pencil. Next stage, some time.


Call Of The Wild

I wish i'd given this feller a pedal to melt away on.

Dead Snow

A quality Cabin vs Maniacs movie in my opinion, recommended if you already have a 'My Top 10 Zombie Movies are . . ' list.

Rented through itunes which was a first, other firsts yesterday being, first spotify and first twitpic.


Gear Change

'Cos it's not all monsters, zombies, stormtroopers and bastards . . .

Though now it's time to watch Dead Snow.
