Hey there comics fans! So here's the first three pages from the comic I'm doing with a student from school. This project has been ongoing but that's what you get when you mix business with pleasure - running an art department at school and at home at the same time!
I'm trying a new technique here where I placed the inked pages on a light-box and painted the tones in blue watercolour on a separate piece of paper. Then joined the 2 separations in Photoshop. It's a style I was sort of influenced by in Darwyn Cooke's latest book, 'The Hunter' adapted from the novel of the same name by Donald Westlake aka Richard Stark. See an example of what I mean here.
Well take it east for now and have a happy Christmas! Card comes next!!

BLIMEY I haven't blogged in ages! Lets see if I can get this right;

Below is a pic I did for my good friend Matt the Hatt for his birthday which was a good couple weeks ago so I must really be getting slow nowadays! Anyhoo, I apologize a lot and now here is my picture. It would have also been the image I may have submitted to Little White Lies magazine in a competition, which I was far too late to enter for. *sigh* oh well, maybe next time. And no other news on the comic I'm doing with the student at school other than it's all drawn and still inking. More will be up soon.
