I’ve been quite for a number of months, socially and creatively.
Two recent events have kicked me into action.
My dad died a few weeks ago. It’s all been dealt with ( Thanks to my amazing sister ), so no condolonses please.
This week I have handed my notice in at my day job. So in a months time I will be a freelancer. The past year has been very stressful, and I cannot wait to leave.
This is scary and exciting.
In other news, I will be at SPX and Thought Bubble.
More soon, just wanted to update stuff.
Worth reading – in depth series of articles from Andy Oliver, regarding the indy publishing scene in the UK.
This is happening, June 6th. More info soon.
Okay, climbing out the creative deep freeze, slowly. This website has had a bit of a clean up. The New CECAF poster is almost complete, ready for announcing the next event. New work is in progress, also plans for a major shift in circumstances are almost completed as well. Feel very upbeat about the next few months, hope you do too :)
I have a new comic that I cannot get finished. Since finishing book 2 of Monsters, i’ve dried up.
It’s really difficult getting anything finished. I still love comics, but this is the first time in 12 years where it’s not happening.
So for the moment i’m going to post sketchbook stuff, and it’s development.
I will also try to complete Tracks, as it’s a good story.
Hopefully in a couple of months I will be starting Monsters 3, and it will all flow again.
For the moment it’s good to take a few side routes.
If anyone is reading this and are worrying about there own creative stall.
Take time out, you will be better for it when you start again.
The past couple of months have been short on creative activity. A combination of convention and day job commitments have eaten up the time. To keep my hand in i’ve been using sketchbooks a lot more. Below are some recent page drawn during the trip to Angouleme. There is a lot of condensing ideas and scenery. I’m looking forward to working these up to finished pieces.
Here are a few pics from my recent trip to Angouleme. Report to follow.
