So these are some of my books

So, as you might know I have got a Kickstarter going and in a few of the tiers you have the option to choose some of my books. A few peeps have asked me what they are so I have made a quick litle guide of you.

Thank goodness for Herald Owlett vol.1 version 2.0 
This is the first volume of an action adventure comic about a feathery blue monster called Herald Owlett, who has to fight the evil Bufu who creates evil shadow-like monsters that like to destroy things. Think along the lines of a saturday morning cartoon, lots of over the top fun and adventure. The reason it’s named 2.0 is because I revisited it a year back - It comes with new pages and a brand new colour section in the middle.

Thank Goodness for Herald Owlett Vol.2
Second part to the story, carries on where vol.1 left off… more lovely fight scenes. This one comes in BnW.

Thank goodness for Herald Owlett vol.3 version 2.0
Last part to this story, though the Herald Owlett adventures will continue. This one is being reprinted at the moment and will be on sale soon, in BnW and again with four colour pages inside.

F:art book vol.1
This is a BnW fan art book that me, Lou Ho and Will Kirkby made. There were only 300 of these made, and each set of 100 has a different cover, the one I have are the copies with my design. Once these have gone they will not be reprinted,

Antisnow sketchbook 2012
Antisnow is a BnW sketchbook I made containing concept artwork for both Herald Owlett and Honeydew and Magic. It also contains character sketches and a small handful of fan art sketches, I only made 200 of these and they will not be reprinted.
Hope this helps anyone who has been wondering what it is I do

Getting ready for Kickstarter

I finally manage to get that darn digital colouring done on this poster design, it took far too long for my liking but it's done. I need to have a little more practise with it before I am happy with it but for now I'll put that on the side as I need to crack on with this Kickstarter stuff.                             

 I should be ( fingers crossed ) launching this at the beginning of May,I am hoping to hit Bristol and MCM comic cons with it,to try and drum up a little more support with it, So with that I am trying to do a few different samples so at least peeps will know what it is they are getting.                          

A fair few of my card art samples and painting samples could do with being a lot more up to date. I manged to make a Nausicca watercolour (I added a little glitter ink to the eyes to make them stand out more), I am also starting a Bioshock card art I said to a friend that I would make her one ( this was about 9 months ago I said that, but better late than never I guess)... I did start version of one ages ago but the reason I probably didn't finish it was because I wasn't too happy with the design. I had an idea on the train a few days ago with a newer version and I am much happier with this one, luckily she gave me the thumbs up to go ahead with it, if I work hard I should be able to have this as a sample for Kickstarter too.

 Anywho, more will be updated soon and I'll get a date and more details about it real soon, more will be coming up very shortly so watch this space... I am super excited about it but also super nervous.

A little something I am working on

  So Came back from LSCC the other day which was ok, a little quite than what I had hoped for but it was lovely to see everyone again and have a little chat with peeps to catch up on stuff that I had missed.
  The feedback I got from peeps was everyone asking what I had been up to, then me realising that I haven't been updating anything.

 So to combat that here is a little something I am working on, hopefully some sort of cover for Honeydew and Magic when that comes out, I haven't finished it just yet but here is what I have done so far, I am having a go at digital colouring in, not really great at it thus it's taking me a little longer than normal but fingers crossed it will look ok...I hope.

 I should be around May launching a Kickstarter to get this comic up and going, more will be revealed as it gets closer, at the mo I am currently re-working the story and will start re-drawing it by the end of the week. I should be getting some bits and bobs together for it as well, I'm thing things like key rings and bags and other such things. But please watch the space and more will be revealed...

 Oh also I will be at Cardiff Con this Weekend so please come and say hi if your going to it
 But more to come real soon!!!!

Start to a new year

Hope everyone had a super new year, mine has been a little hectic but it's all settling down a little, just moved into a new house which means that I now have more room to do artwork which great, I have a whole heap of ideas I want to do so fingers crossed all will be well!. In the process of the move I got a tiny bit of a cold which meant that I have been feeling extra tired so not been able to do many big pieces of work, I have been doing some text stuff on the computer which is the most tedious thing to do, I'm not a fan of text editing but hopefully once it's done that's it for a while.                                                                        I have also been working on Honeydew which is coming along, still editing bits here and there but almost finished drawing it, just need to solider on through it, going to start getting quotes for it and should be ready in a few months, I am aiming for May/June for it so it will be nice summer release, there may be a chance that I would be Kickstarting it, so having a little look at what extra bit's to put in with it.... but I'll keep ya posted on that.
Oh also I made Rob a little Samus picture of Metroid, it's one of his fave Nintendo series and he has a nice collection of Zac Gorman prints based on Zelda so I thought I would carry on the theme with Nintendo, I keep meaning to take a process video of things like this but forget, I would love to do a video of some sorts just to show how long these things can take, I am hoping the next one will be a Fez picture, I am planning that one out now!
But just wanted to keep this post a little short but just letting peeps know that I am working on comics, the next Expo I should be at will be the LSCC in London on the 23rd-24th of Feb, hopefully I'll have comics re-printed by then!
