Siobhan McKeown portrait

Lovely lady Siobhan McKeown commissioned me to do a portrait of her for her website.
I really enjoyed doing this. Curly hair is fun to draw!

Check out the drawing on Siobhan's new website here.

Fred Leicester letter

Tee hee!
Someone wrote into the Mercury to suggest that the 'Fred Leicester' character I draw for one of the opinion columns makes a bit more of an effort on his appearance!

Maybe I should shave him for this Saturday's paper...? :)

Evie's Diary book cover

Here's another book cover I did for Troubador Publishing and author Heather Cook.
This one was really fun to do, since I do enjoy drawing cats.

You can read more about the book itself here.

Peace an' that,

The Way We Write - teasers

Hey Lovelies,

Here are some little snippets of the comic I'm currently working on...which I first blogged about here.
The comic is about real-life-band Her Name is Calla.

I'm aiming for this to be finished by November, so I'll let you know what becomes of it then :)

A Special Vicky Park

Saturday's Vicky Park was special to me because my lovely friend Lauren Sharp helped me with it :)

The Leicester Mercury Features Editor asked me if I could do a food-themed Vicky comic to go with their food-themed More Magazine.
I really wanted to do a recipe but am shockingly bad at cooking - but Lauren isn't!
So Lauren wrote and I drew, I love collaborations :)

Alex Eskimo - the collaboration

Me and my designer friend Paul Banks have been working on a new comic story about an arctic fox called Alex Eskimo.

If this sounds familiar, good work! You get a gold star, 'cause I first blogged about this idea here.

I did this quick drawing of Alex today. I think he's making a stance.

And here are some (slightly drunken) sketches I did while me and Paul were hatching plot ideas in the pub :)

I'll be sure to keep you guys updated as this project moves along :D

Comic: Stuck

Writing a new comic at the mo. Thought you guys might like to see the front cover concept I came up with yesterday. Note to self: I should really *finish* comics rather than start ten million at once...
