Bristol countdown: 15 days...

Been a busy old week for me; On Tuesday I turned 38. Feeling old is just around the corner, but I'm not there yet!

I delivered FutureQuake, Dogbreath and Zarjaz to the printers this week, so barring 'The Great Warlord Sugi & Other Tales' that is it for prep for this years Bristol con.

I collected World of Weird from the printers, a comic I've been putting the finishing touches to for Ed Berridge & Bryan Coyle, and has been in the pipeline for almost three years! The finished product looks good, so hopefully it'll make some folks happy to read it.

MangaQuake 06 was also ready for collection, and includes an absolute gem of a strip. Titled 'love is not wrong' it is a superbly paced tale with art by first time published artist Sophia Grant. Sophia is also one of the folk who took part in the portfolio session at HI-Ex earlier this year. Nice to see someone dipping their toes into small press after that.

Art-wise I'm now inking page 3 of the Kingdom strip for the next Zarjaz, and I'm making sketches for a perspective based shot of Mega-city one for the 2000ad message board. Not sure if that will turn into anything though.

In the near future I'm thinking that we well make a third issue of FutureQuake next year, as we have a significant page count already in files ready to print. Things will have to be discussed before a proper decision is reached though.

I'll try to get a picture for next time I post...

Dogbreath 18 Detail

I've posted the full version of this on the Quequam blog, but I like this enough to want to post the line art here. Very pleased with how this came out.
