A little bit of character design

With Westside Stories due to start in early 2010, here's a work-in-progress sketch of character design and style for one of the main characters. There's plenty to do on it yet, but I'm reasonably pleased with how it's going.

Playing with a continuing series

Westside Stories will run from January 2010, and will be an attempt to run a continuing series.

The plan is for me to do the first couple alone, then gather submissions from people interested in providing a character, a story, some art, whatever, and try and evolve a strip with many creators, but one over-arching theme.

Some people have already chipped in with both scripts and characters, so I've some hope that it'll work.

Zoroaster In Aethiopia

Here's something I'm very excited about!

My run on Richard Carbonneau's Zoroaster In Aethiopia has now started!

I really had an absolute blast doing this and if you have time the time to check it out and let me know what you think, I'd really appreciated it! If you do go, make sure you take a look at the quite brilliant strip The Marvel, also written by Richard, with are by the fantastic Robin Simon.

Anyway, the link to Zoroaster is here; http://www.webcomicsnation.com/rscarbonneau/zoroaster/series.php

A small snippet of an upcoming strip

This is just a small section of the art I'm doing for an upcoming strip...

Reasons and explanations

When I first went to art college, one of my ambitions was to work on a comicbook. As my career progressed, and I moved more into Graphic Design and away from Illustration that goal faded from view, until around two years ago, when I started doing little sketches for friends who, like me, played in the online game City of Heroes. Producing these re-ignited my love of both drawing and the comicbook medium.

Recently, by accident really, I've been contacted to produce artwork for a number of different publications, and have found my former goal to suddenly, surprisingly, within reach.

As a first post test, here are a few of the illustrations I recently produced for the Hero Games publication Lucha Libra Hero (on sale here: https://www.herogames.com/viewItem.htm?itemID=238817 )
