In an effort to put down the fork and spoon and wine and beer and pick up a drawing implement here's a go at Peter Criss. It's to celebrate the fact that I was given a ticket to the KISS Sonic Boom Tour next year. Our tickets get us inside 'The Golden Circle' at Malma Stadium, though I dread to think what that entails.
Last minute Cold Gin/ Collagen gag superseded any Crissmassy jokes which is just as well as The Cat and The Space Ace are only there in make-up as Peter and Ace are no longer with the band, again .
Happy New Year! If this is the last today.

I'm not on the list as I wrote no cards to no-one. I meant to but never got around to it. Or finish round 2 with last years catastrophic Dr Who story. Or do the small multitude of work for the people that I wanted to. Will do soon.
M E R R Y C H R I S T M A S !
Will Dawbarn, Sean Phillips, Matt Badham and the rest of the Huzzah!!! gang were not forgotten but cropped (with any other omissions) in my view of Santa's Good List.

This is my blog. It's got my pictures on it. It's got a few pictures that the nippers have drawn but other than that it's ALL MINE. With one exception. In 2008 Dan McDaid did a version of Elka of the Swedish Heroes. I am still excited he did it and like to remind myself every now and then.
Here he is again, this time his Nun with two Guns, and a technicolour beauty she is too. No guns? No problem, all action.
There is something going on with the Nun, it will be revealed but just not yet.
Already, I'm sheepishly remembering the exceptions Sorry Jonathan. They 'll be others, let me know.
New Nun!! Marco's done another beauty!
Christmassyness creeping in. Getting bolder at the prospect of another one so soon after last years Disastermas. Here is Goo Girl in action once again (ignoring the GG strip that is yet to be finished) against a suitable festive foe.
This post is dedicated to Pimpernel who kindly invited me to contribute a Christmas list for his blog, which I just about managed in time. Some cracking artist have contributed, recently I.N. J. Culbard and Francesco Francavilla with the prospect of Guy Davis and Mike Mignola before the big day, Phew!
Thanks for the invite Pimpernel, and for the high praise.

Rapid sketch (20 mins in pen) of the Nun on a bike (without reference so excuse it's lack of whatever)
But mainly links to Joscha Van Deijk for his fan art double bill. And to conspiratorial compardre Monkeyfeather for doing a much better job with his end of this whole enterprise that we've begun.
Again I missed the deadline for the Comica/ Observer Graphic Short Story. Actually I missed it twice this year as they extended the deadline. After a shark mad night last night I'm prompted to get this out. A panel of my four page plan.
Check out the contenders and winners. There is so much great stuff there that having a winner seems beside the point. I hope the get collected n some form.

Taking the nippers to swimming this evening, all three rattling on with their own conversations uncaring wether anyone was listening or interested. At some stage I realised the New Kid (5 now and that makes him newer than the others) was enlightening us on the subject of 'The Mummy Death Hotel'.
Gungle day 3 on the Flickr where it will be now if not here.

The Coconut Robot
So after the kids got to school and did a 12 hour shift, I got home and put pen to paper for the first time today. Done in one go, no rubbers, no plan, not great really but I suppose this is how the hundred day thing will go. It's not going to get in the way of stuff on the go. It also won't be a day to day feature on here, most likely a weekly round-up or something.
Anyway, he is still The Coconut Robot, autonomous Gungle dweller.

Today has been a stinker for making any headway with the projects on the go. So progress has been stimulated by deciding to join in the Hundred Days Project. I plan to get through til March 10th producing an A5 or 6 image per day. By the end I'd like to flog the lot to raise some cash to publish some work. I reckon i've got a lot about that could go into a book. It should not interfere with the many other 'on the go' jobs and a small drawing can be enough to get the 'pencil engine' going on the crap days.
Thanks to Rob Davis the subject will be Gungle.
Here's the first, Tribe of One on a lofty limb.
