PATCHES STRIKES BACK!

As I sit here, enjoying 'Return of the Jedi', feeling happy after laying out another three pages of Patches issue 2, thoughts are already turning to issue 3.
 
I'm really happy with how issue 2 is coming on. The story and art are really flowing nicely. I have a cover painting/pinup planned, and sorting out 'glitches' in the story are proving natural and effortless.

Creating comics has been part of me for as long as I can remember. My Saturday 'treat' was always a Marvel comic when my dad bought his tobacco for the week. The sweet smell of mixed tobacco, boiled sweets and fizzy pop accompanied me choosing my weekly fix. I've been reacquainting myself with comics from that era, and they're pointing the way for issue 3. I won't say much more, but it'll be full of eastern promise!
 
Have a great weekend, and don't forget you can grab Patches' first adventure on Amazon! ;) All proceeds go towards the first print run! Saturday afternoons were always comics time for me.

MIGNOLA...

Today is the birthday of my favourite 'cartoonist' ever... Mike Mignola.  I rattled off a quick birthday sketch yesterday and blasted it through Photoshop... Enjoy!

#DRAW SAMURAI JACK

Best cartoon ever?  Certainly one of the best designed, plotted and created.  The mighty Mooks has got his latest #draw up and running to celebrate the legend that is Samurai Jack.  Here's mine...  You can see the whole shebang here, there's some real doozies!

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU...

To celebrate STAR WARS DAY, Andy over at TOYSREVIL has got a darw theme going on too... Here's a quick couple of Illustrator blasts from me!

Oh, and it's my VERY good friends Jess and Ed's FIRST wedding anniversary... Happy days!

 

#DRAWFUTURAMA

@themooks is back with another great #draw... This time, #drawfuturama.  With the news of (possibly) no more twisted sci-fi comedy gold from Groening and Co, it's wonderful to see what the art community comes up on this one.

So, with apologies to Ashley Wood and Matt Groening, here's my contribution...

PINHAMMER 69...

In a homage to my favourite comic book legend, MIKE MIGNOLA, I created this LEGO diorama last night...

I didn't think it'd get done in one night, but, creativity got the better of me, and the build was complete!  You can see the full set on FLIKR here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/63215514@N03/sets/72157633030159648/

The shot below is a taster for the lead character, Pinhammer 69...

I'm having such a blast building and playing, but I must get more art done too! Enjoy the pics folks!

PLAYING IS GOOD FOR YOU...

The LEGO obssession continues... Minifigs are such fun to work and play with, and I'm loving being able to mash up different styles and genres. 

I have a big piece in the works at the mo, but for now, here's some of the fun from last week.

LEGO DIORAMA NO.1

So, the LEGO lunacy continues...

I set up a little diorama to display my mashed up minifigs, and got some nice iPhone shots last night.  Playing is FUN!

More mashed up madness soon...
