Here is a few sketches for a t-shirt design.

The final sketches were not used, but I like these prep drawings.

Below is the finished design. A combination of Zombie Rocky Horror walk, Crouch End clock tower and Crouch End Festival.

If you are around N8 during June, drop by and check out some of the events.

There is also CECAF, which is an awesome cartoon event. Would be great to see you there.

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.

Don’t.

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.

I have been active with a lot of sketchbook action recently. Usually posted via my phone during my day  lunch break.

So here are few better scans of a few of them. I don’t have a lot of time to make these drawings. Normally I would make the sketch during my journey into work. I have learnt to go with the wobbly train line, and draw straight into my sketchbook with a pen. I will then colour them in during my lunch, posting via Instagram with some pithy text. I would like to spend more time making these drawing more refined. But it never happens. Hey!  That’s what sketchbooks are for.

My recent comic Rain On Glass (BUY IT HERE ) was reviewed on the ever excellent MOMBcast. Thank you for that.

I have uploaded a FREE pdf that combines my napkin sketches. This was a brief fad that happened over the winter months.
Now that has ended and been documented, i’m now adding colour to my daily sketches. Above is one of theme, Scrap face.
