Doctor Strange Private Commission.

I recently completed a private commission for comic art collector Robert Turner, as you can see he wanted Marvel's Master Of The Mystical Art (how Stan Lee kept up the alliteration thing for 25 years I'll never know) Doctor Strange. Here's pencil sketch, & the finished piece.

If you want something similar, check out my MySpace page for details.

Leeds Sci-Fi, Comic & Card Fair report.

As previously mentioned, yesterday was the Leeds comic & card fair. I spent a good few hours down there. It's been a couple of years since I've appeared at one of these events, I'd forgotten how much fun they can be. The crowd is more of a crossection of the public than Comic Conventions tend to be, no bad thing in my opinion, pulling curious passers by from the Saturday afternoon shopping crowd. Everyone I met was nice here's a few of them, & some of the sketches I did.

Birmingham International Comics Show 4

Ok... this is the final disection of the B.I.C.S. show, & only because Wade Campbell sent me a couple more pics from the Flip Out event, including a better pic of Shane Oakley's Iron Man. Also a few more pictures of some of the cosplayers I found online. If I took these from your site, I apologise for not asking permission, but in my defence, I am a thief, so what do you expect?

Catwoman Sketch.

Playing with my new 'double ended' Sharpies, & white out pen.


Birmingham International Comics Show 3

In response to my request for photographic evidence of Shane Oakley's awesome Iron Man sketch at the B.I.C.S. Comic Artists Flip Out, user Mailman (sorry I don't know your real name) has sent me a link to a review of the weekend which features said proof.

I've included the pictures of the 'Flip Out event here, but I strongly recommend you read the review of the whole weekend here.

Top to bottom: My big fat head getting in the way of Shane's awesome Iron Man sketch. Me drawing The Punisher. Mark Buckingham showing how a real artist does it. Finally, me again hogging the limelight & drawing Batman at the same time.... who says men can't multi-task!!

Deadpool Private Commission

Here's a private commission I completed recently for Ashley Barron, as you can tell he wanted Galactus, but since I have no idea what he looks like, I drew Deadpool for him instead...ok, ok.. he wanted Deadpool.. jeez.

Anyway, if you'd like one of your very own, check out my MySpace page where you will find details of the various private commissions I do.


Leeds Sci-Fi, Comic & Card Fair.

After something of an haitus, Golden Orbit are relaunching their Leeds Comic & Card events this coming weekend (18th October). I'll be there, doing the usual... signing, sketching & delivering witty (some may say 'hilarious') banter!

The shows have moved from their old location, & now take place in Leeds Town Hall situated on the Headrow in Leeds city center, five minutes walk from the rail & bus stations. In another break from tradition the whole thing kicks off an hour earlier than usual at 11:00am.

Sketches will be charged at a flat rate of £10-, & in true Blue Peter style.. here's one I did earlier, last week infact at the Birmingham Con. Thanks to Jaime for sending me this scan.

Birmingham International Comics Show 2

So B.I.C.S. was last weekend. It was well attended, numbers I heard varied from 3500 to 5000, & fun was had by all I trust, certainly by yours truely. Highlights include Shane Oakley's Iron Man sketch at the Comic Artists Flip Out on Saturday morning (sadly I have no photographic evidence of it.. but if anyone does, please contact me & I'll post it on here), Dez Skinn's unusual hotel room arrangements (you had to be there... trust me) & the now traditional B.I.C.S. Saturday night over a meal discussion of Jean Claude Van Damme's contribution to world cinema.

Presented here is my paltry attempt to keep a photographic record of the event. Thanks to Sam (Superman) for providing additional pictures.

Birmingham International Comics Show

Hi everyone.

Just a quickie to let you all know that the Birmingham International Comic Show is this coming weekend. Star guests (other than yours truely, natch.... ahem..) will include the legendary Michael Golden, John Cassaday & Olivier Coipel.

I realise that most of my friends on here are in the States.. but for the few Brits, if you're in the area, come on by.

There's masses of fun events, including a 'Pop Idol' style talent search. The winner getting the chance to have a story published in 2000AD. And as usual, a hall choc fulla dealers selling everything from comics to... well, err.. more comics.

Aaaanyway, as is also usual at these events, I'll be signing & sketching at various points over the weekend. Here is a Spiderman sketch I did at a previous event. Hope to see some of you there... & incase you're wondering..mine's a pint!
