's great to get back to life drawing, so i thought i'd post my attempts at remembering how to draw naked peoples, and not just stand and stare. It was great fun, we got 3 hours and a variety of poses, although i always seem to do better with the quick 6 min stuff where i have no time to think, than the longer poses :)
Anyways, good to keep it up, back with some more astrofunk updates in a couple of days

cover yourself up!

sorry . no nakedness here :) only the finished cover for astrofunk numero uno. Finally :) ....well, i have been concentrating on the pages, which are now pretty much finished, couple of little tweaks from some feedback, but basically done, which feels pretty this thing should be sent out real soon. Also. i've done some more rough pages ( and i mean rough ) for astrofunk 2, got about 5 or 6 in sequence, so will probs post some of that soon, along with the work i'm doing on my 'next issue' page for issue 1, giving u a better look at mockchop and chompbot. But anyways, let me know what u think of this cover, would it make you buy the comic, catch your eye on the shelf...or does it make u wanna vomit? all comments welcome...well, most of them :)

oh yeah - u wanna go and buy the new scott pilgrim comic, issue 4 is out this week, and i cannot wait, it's a tremendous read with fantastic art, well worth pickin up.

poster in progress

Evenin' all, just thought i'd post a quick update, poster idea i've been wanting to start working on....there's alot to do before this is finished, all the comic panel layouts could change possibly, but i'm pleased with some...hopefully it'll end up as a big poster at some convention in the near future :) lemme knows what u think, sleep times 4me now, goodnight!

Bonsoir! I'm tryin to make the effort to get back to posting stuff regularly here, inbetween finishing astrofunk 1 and changing nappies/singing to here's some new stuff to stick infront of yer eyes for afew seconds, give 'em a treat :) ..if u start to cry it's probably not a good sign :) ....the rabbit is a sticker that gets thrown around by the heroes in astrofunk, and the tag on the end is painted by them, and my latest attempt at graffiti, which i find pretty tough but good fun. The lil' guy in the middle is the not quite final design for some dudes who will show up shortly in the first half of astrofunk 2! He's either called 'ChompBot' or 'Chompatron'. Not decided yet :) but he'll be causing trouble no doubt....

Astorfunk 1 is....sooo very nearly finished, the 26 page main story just needs...well, something like 3 hours of work, tops. So i'm feelin good about that, getting some feedback from fellow comic book artistic style buddies this week, so hopefully by the end of the following week it will be winging it's way to publishers across the waters in the US of A. Whilst it's away I'll be finishing the colouring on the Captain Fuzzball back up story which you've glimpsed in my previous 2 posts...wish i could post more of the 9 pages which are all pencilled, but it would give away too much of the story...i wanna leave that for when the comic is in your hands! Which is hopefully early next year!!

Plus, i am scripting/sketching astrofunk 2 some more, so expect to see pencils for that up here very soon! I can't wait, it opens with brand new characters, so is great fun to this space!
