Pac Man - 35th Anniversary

Hey!

You may know that it was the 35th anniversary of Pac Man this year and Bandai wanted to pull together an artistic celebration in honour of the dot munching hero. They gathered 65 artists  and I was asked to be one of them. Apparently the art was on display in Jump Festa expo in Japan though I haven't been able to find any pics yet
There is talk of an artbook but nothing certain just yet. meanwhile here is my piece:


Drew this almost completely digital this time around. Pencilled on paper, inked in Manga Studio and coloured in Photoshop.

Assassin's Creed: Covers

Hey, hey!

CBR just did an article about the new run of Assassin's Creed comic and the variant covers and mentioned one of the ones I've done. HERE
The self important artist in me noticed that the colours of my cover on that article were ever so slightly off because of it being a CMYK file and I find colours almost always look awful when posted on the internet in that file type. So to soothe the fussy art beast in me here's an RGB version which should better show how it will come out in print :)


I've got another cover for that run too, both I'm really happy with.  I'm genuinely a big fan of the games so It was awesome to be able to do something for Ubisoft and Titan.

Also mentioned in that article is the Templar series that will have covers by my buddy Marc Lamming I've had a sneak at another one and trust me they are wicked! I think he's also doing some for AC too so keep your eyes peeled!

Worldbuilders 2015: Original Art & Book Auction!!

Hey!

So for the second year in a row the Improper Books team have given some of our works to the Worldbuilders/Heifer charity team for their annual auction.
Last year we gave away some copies of our books but this year I think we've really given some good bundles of things to auction.

So if you know me and my work you may also know(And be annoyed) that I haven't sold any original of anything yet (I'm hoping to in the future but still no idea when) Meanwhile this is actually the first chance to get your hands on my actual inked pages.

I've given the guys at Worldbuilders a page of inked artwork to go with a copy of each of the respective books. Also it's not mentioned in the description but with each book that comes with the artwork I've signed and sketched in the font too.

Also if you are new to our works or fancy a pack of it all for someone who hasn't read any of our books then we have also given in 4 bundles of all of our books. in there. so that is Night Post, Porcelain, Porcelain: Bone China, Briar, Butterfly Gate, Night and Dragon and Mulp - Books 1+2.

HERE is a link to the auction listings. If you scroll through you can find our stuff in amongst the other auctions.
There are tons of great little item packs in there so be sure to check out all things  up for bidding. Speaking as a big 'Name Of The Wind'/ Patrick Rothfuss fan there are some achingly good trinkets on there.

Remember this is more importantly for a good cause, a great cause in fact. So bid high!!
I don't want to butcher the explanation for what Worldbuilders do so here is a video by World builders about what they and Heifer do:





Also here are the pages that you can get hold of in the auction (they are all brushed Ink on Bristol board A3 pieces):


Butterfly Gate:  Chapter 2 - Page 31 

Porcelain : A Gothic Fairy Tale
Chapter 3 - Page 1

Porcelain : Bone China
Chapter 2 - Page 22
Briar : Page 31

Dusting Off The Blog.

Hey All,


Wow, so it has literally been well over a year since my last post. I feel equally ashamed and ok with that as the large gap has been literally because I've just had too much to do with work.
So just quickly I wanted to say "hey! I'm alive!" and stay tuned because I have a lot of posts about work and a ton of posts I want to put up about projects I've been working on and I really want to get some posts about process up here too.

Meanwhile to prove I've been busy here's a bunch of pics from my Instagram account which I tend to quickly snap and post glimpses of things I'm working on if I can more than anywhere else.
Some I can talk about some I cant but trust me it's all fun stuff.
Stay tuned! Loads to come!...... I promise!

Hey Just wanted to post up quickly about a signing event I'm at this weekend at Chaos City Comics In St Albans.
We start at 2.00 PM and they have some amazing guys signing and sketching. So pop by and say hey if you are near. I'll be doing the usual free sketch in copies of Porcelain and Butterfly Gate and Chaos City have stock of said books so I'll have all my wares with me. 

Also I'll be selling a limited A3 Colour Matt print I've drawn up especially for this event (pictured above) If any are left after the signing, I'll be selling privately (Contact me via Email or DM me on Twitter)
Though as I say they are limited to just 17 and will be numbered so they may not be around long. They will be £20 each.

On The Road! - 2014 Comic Conventions!

Hey!

Just a quick post about the Comic cons I've signed up to attend this year. Super excited to go to all of these, some are new conventions for me so I'm equally nervous. Please do come by and say hi!

All of these I'll be sketching at and I'll be taking on pre ordered commissions before each con.

Though I wont be taking any Commissions on before this coming Bristol Expo as I have too much work on.  (Sorry!)

If you would like a commission DM me on Twitter or you can find my email address on my blog profile info link on the top left of this page, I'm going to put a limit to 7 pieces for each Convention so get em' while they're hot!

As usual it's free pencil sketches in any of my books you bring or buy on the day.


So I'm booked for:

Bristol Expo : I'll be sharing a table with my Improper Books editor and good friend Matt Gibbs and Sara Dunkerton. They will be Launching their new comic Mulp- Check that out!

Cam Con : Again sharing a table with Matt and Sara. This is my first time at this con so please do stop by and say hi!

Nottingham Comic Convnetion: Another first time for myself at this con. I'm an actual guest and everything! Also I'll possibly be part of a panel so keep your eyes and ears peeled for news on that.

Thought Bubble : As ever returning with the whole Improper Books Team to our beloved comic convention and comic spiritual home.
