I realised last night that there may be a lot of people new to following this blog.
There may also be plenty of people who have no idea what i’m currently working on.
So this is a small update.
I’m primary a cartoonist who self published my own comics. I also work on a paid gig for a publishing company.
Four months ago I decided to turn to freelancing, as I had a new project to work on.
The project is Necessary Monsters ( Written by Daniel Merlin Goodbrey ) published by First comics. Monsters has now had a very long history. It started as a web comic in 2008, and this latest and final part is the as yet to be titled third volume. Volume two is completed and will be available next year. Volume one is going to be available, again, in November.
I am currently half way through the first part of Vol 3.
So this takes up most of time. When there is space, when not working on other paid jobs, I have my personal projects.
For the past couple of years I have been making a bunch of autobiographical comics.
The most recent is Called Tracks.
There was a vague idea of making a large book ( never a great idea ) based on my personal experiences ( even less of a great idea ), taken from my sketchbook work.
Having started as a diary comic, it’s morphed into re-telling a bunch of stories from my past/present. I have another two comics in various stages of completion. These may be available this year.
I worked on a project that became Dark Matters, with Douglas Noble. We may have something new at some point. I have sent him some material, this may become a thing. Douglas is currently putting together some a collaboration which will be debuting at Thought Bubble.
I hope that this new phase in my creative life will inspire some new work, and a more frequent amount.
Thanks for reading.
