This is the first in a series of blogs looking at my working process.
Today I give a quick walk through of the current state of The Sea Shepherd, a long term Arts Council funded project.
The Sea Shepherd, my new Arts Council funded project continues to develop.
im at the writing and researching stage.
here are a couple of pictures of WIP in the studio, and a sketch of a Humpback wale.
More to come.
Hope you are well. My Patreon has been dormant for a year, and has had many false starts. But that is about to change. last Orders is a new autobio and it’s my first full colour self published work. I will update every Sunday with around three pages. There will also be a weekly blog post just for Patreons, this will be process, news, whatever is current with my work. This will be updated on Wednesday.

Thank you 😊
I’m currently drawing issue three. There has been a slight delay due to my move to Hull. It was recently reviewed by Richard Bruton at Comicon.
Now, through both issues, whether it’s me expecting it from previous readings of Noble’s wonderfully, frustratingly, complex stories, full of deeper meaning than what’s there on the page, or whether it’s actually there more than just that initial discovery, I’m still not quite sure, but, through it all, there’s a sense of something darker happening or promising to happen. All this lightness and fun is merely the build-up to something more. And that’s the thing that really got me deep into Black Leather and made it so damn enjoyable.
Douglas has completed all 5 scripts, and it’s great. He’s produced a really compelling version of an idea I’ve had in my head for far to long. Really looking forward to drawing the rest of the story.
Drawing comics can be very labour intensive and a break is really welcome. So to mix things up I take the characters and use them in other forms. Cut-out dioramas are currently my thing.
Here is a recent example. More soon.
And its live !
Black Leather issues 1 and 2 are now availble in the shop.
“It was the 1980s”
A beating, a nightclub, the sound of rock music and the roar of engines. The bleached smile of a skull. Black Leather is a wild ride of heavy metal, motorbikes and the explosion of youth. A tragedy of first love, of sacrifice, and of discovery, Black Leather is the scream of yesterday echoing right now.
This is the first issue of a five part series.
A comic by Sean Azzopardi and Douglas Noble, creators of Sightings of Wallace Sendek, Built of Blood & Bricks and After the Sessions.
