Gone North ( Working title )

Been a bit quiet here. Mainly due to some paid work, and Monsters taking up my time.

Here is a sketch for the cover of my follow on to Tracks.

The working title is Gone North, but that is likely to change.

Most of the pencils are completed, seems to be coming along real quick.

Tube sketch – 25.2.13



I have reverted to sketching during my tube journey to work. Lunch breaks are being used for writing my new comic, so no tree drawings for a while.

This was blue pencil, and I have tried to preserve this in the scan, rather than threshold it. This is why the other side of the page can be seen.

In other news, Thought Bubble 2013 exhibitor tables sold out in a few hours. I missed out, so will enter myself in the reserve lottery. It shows what a good reputation TB has gained.

If you are in London, pop into Orbital where you will find Same Day Return and Necessary Monsters 2.1 on sale.

Sketchbook 2012 – Platform waiting to travel

This is a sketch for a new Wallace Sendek page. Sendek was a collaboration between myself and Douglas. We then followed this up with Built of Blood and Bricks. At the moment Douglas is working on our new project called Pirouette. We are trying to get the work completed and collected for my trip to TCAF.
Wish Douglas well as I’m rushing him into finishing the third part.
It took me three years to finish Sendek.

Angouleme Sketches – Chris Ware

This is my last Angouleme 2012 post finishing a week after the festival closed. This is a Sketch of Chris Ware, from memory as he didn’t make it to the festival.
I also wrote a blog post for FP and it can be read here.
Time to be getting on with new stuff and preparations for TCAF.

Angouleme sketch – Charles Burns

After the Saturday events our happy group went for a meal and we were provided with brown paper place-mats. Naturally the pens and pencils came out and we personalised them. I was trying to describe to Sally anne what Charles Burns looked like as we failed to get into his talk. This was from memory as i saw him briefly stop by to talk to Chris and Tom at the Adhouse table.
We didn’t pay for the bill with our sketches, sadly.
