Watchful ish Weather




I have been drawing people who are supposed to make you feel like they are contemplating something secret. This is because I want to create this sort of mood in my next comic. Although I like this one, I know I have a habit I'd like to lose of often making my characters look "staged" in the way they are placed against the background. Hmm. 







This mystery snow-toddling one's better.

Bunch of stars



I've started making some prints we are giving as rewards to people who pledged money to LOAf. Here's one!

Pig & Loompy



This is a comic I entered into the Guardian/Jonathan Cape/ Comica short graphic story prize. I would like to self-publish it at some point in the new year but I am not sure in what format I should do so.  I designed it so that the four pages look right together (seen at the bottom of this post) but really it would probably make more sense if I made it into a book. 

The people who have read this have all had really nice and different perceptions of the story and characters (especially the mystery woman character). Part of me thinks that it is good that the story is enigmatic and open to interpretation. However I wonder if because of the way I have made the layout, some bits which in my head are really important pivotal points in the story are squashed and are not given enough space. Hmm.

Anyway it'd be great to hear what you think about any of it- the story, layout, visual style, audience etc. 









 And here's the whole whopper.

BASKING SHARK


Hello,

Thought I should blog this... doing it made me want to try some book covers.

I did this as part of an exhibition in Bristol celebrating wildlife.

Underwater roar.

Comic Time (ing)



Been working on my contribution to LOAf, developing a story and character. I'm pretty pleased so far with these roughs.

A Hooby Chooby


Becky Palmer and I are starting a children's magazine which will be available in quite a few months time. More on that to come.

Here is a Hooby Chooby not dealing very well with his fears. You might just meet him in the magazine. 




Storyboarding


Storyboarding for the Tree book, (i haven't nailed down a title yet). They were most enjoyable to do. I feel like I could be happy storyboarding for the rest of my days. 

 I like the scruffy roughness, so there.
