It's been a busy couple of months, art-wise. It's always nice when a flurry of things get released; especially when you're like me and sometimes spend eight months working on a graphic novel that people won't see for years! (Alex Rider:Scorpia is out in February though, yay!). Rather than post them all individually, I thought this little banner would offer a taster. For more details on my projects, do check out my scrapbook. I've added the newest bits to it. ^_^
I wanted to pull out a couple of highlights for you. Since a couple of amazing covers featuring my new Doctor Who companion design have now been released in solicits, I figured it was safe to show her to you! This is Josie Day. Designed by me, written into creation by the lovely George Mann! Hi-Fi have done lovely things with the colours on this issue. ^_^
And the preview for Jem & the holograms issue 8 is up at CBR! The comic is out tomorrow. Kelly Thompson is writing incredible stuff and Victoria Robado candy-colours; you'll love it!
Last up: BREAKS is rocketing on and we're into issue 5! Malin and I are super excited about coming close to the end of arc one. this means THE BOOK!! ^_^
I'm off to Kendal tomorrow for the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival! I'm heading up a little early as I'm taking part in this year's 24 hour challenge. EEEEE! Wish me luck. We have a great bunch, but sleep is not invited. And I do like sleep! I hope to see some of you at the event! I'll try and be awake :D
The news is out and I can rave about it! As announced at San Diego Comic Con, writer George Mann and I are working on a brand new mini series for the Eighth Doctor. Yes, I'm working on a new Doctor Who adventure! And for my favourite Doctor! Squeeeeeee <3 Check out the gorgeous cover by Alice X. Zhang. *_*
Honestly, the reaction has been amazing, and I could have linked to any number of articles, but I've chosen the Comic Alliance piece by Steve Morris, as he's the wonderful guy who first talked BREAKS up to the world as well! But yes, there has been some amazing support and excitement, so thank you everyone who's been posting about it ^_^
This site is still alive! ^_^ Here's what's been going on over here:
It is with no small amount of joy that I can talk about this! I'll be guesting on issues 7-9 for IDW's Jem & the Holograms; as brought to new, amazing life by Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell. I'm a longtime Jem fan and love the new take on the series; so to be asked on board was ridiculously exciting ^_^
Also exciting was the opportunity to draw Wonder Woman. I mean, seriously...what an honour! Working on a script by Barbara Kesel; look out for sensation comics issue 13 ^_^
And my inner fangirl was reeling something crazy at being able to work with Square Enix on the community side of the incredible Life is Strange, by dontnod games. We've been making a series of promotional images relating to them game. It's an amazing game, and I've been a square fan for EVER, so it's been so exciting working with them ^_^
Last up, BREAKS is ever-growing. I'm up to 50 patrons on my patreon account now, which is just fantastic and means so much. Do please pop over and pledge if you're enjoying the comic by Malin Ryden and myself. Page 80 got uploaded this week!
I hope you all had a wonderful festive season. ^_^
BREAKS hit 52 pages recently, meaning - at a page a week - it's a year old! If you're not reading yet, now's a great time to catch up! Written by Malin Ryden and myself, pages by meeee :) And if you want to support my work, do pop along to my Patreon page!
In other exciting news, I worked on issue 12 of Dead Boy Detectives for Vertigo comics. Working over the layouts of none other but Mark Buckingham! It was a real treat. Lee Loughridge provided my lovely colours...he can't escape me recently, it seems!
This one's just a sneak of a tiny thing, but something that's made me very happy. I'm not drawing a comic, just providing an illustration, but if it goes through, it will be my first official connection to a character I've always adored. I wonder if you can guess who it is from this? ^_~
Gosh, I've been remiss in updating here. But here are a few updates :)
The CBLDF Liberty Annual 2014 is out from Image; and features a fun story by Robin Furth (writer), myself (artist), Lee Loughridge (colours) and Kristyn Feretti (letters).
I was one of eight (sort of humbling) guests at the Lakes International Comic Festival to create a set of gorgeous giclee prints. They're limited edition and, if you want one, click the banner and get your order in :)
Scorpia is nearing its final phase of production! It's looking fab and Walker have said they'll be able to release the cover soon ^_^
As well as the Lakes Festival, I have two late additions to my schedule this winter: I'll be at the London MCM comic con just for the Saturday - find me and BREAKS in the comic village! And I'll be attending Thought Bubble in Leeds! Yay! I didn't think I'd make it and am so happy that I can!
Click the banner to see DYNAMITE'S Red Sonja issue 15 cover info, including two variant covers from me! One in black and white, and one in colour. ^_^
And while I'm here, thank you GLASGOW COMIC CON! You were superb. Lovely, lovely people. And next up, I'm in Sheffield on Friday for the Excelsior Awards, and then off to YALC on Saturday. See you there? ^_^
