Satanic Mojo No.2 Launch & Exhibition


I've got a new 2 page comic coming out in Satanic Mojo No.2, out in May. Satanic Mojo is kind of a tribute to the acid-fried U.S underground comics of the late 60's/early 70's. 
There's also a launch party/signing at Orbital Comics in London on May 2nd -  I'll be there if you want your comic signed. 
The original art for my comic will also be up in the exhibition until May 31st.

NME Christmas Illustration


Here's a double page illustration I made for the Christmas NME. 

I only had about 4 days to do it, so I drew it straight into Photoshop, with a Wacom tablet. You don't get the same kind of control you have with pen and paper, but it's great for moving all the elements of the picture around. Pretty useful for a complicated picture like this, with 23 characters in it. It also gives a kind of effect that reminds me of woodcuts, where you can 'cut' into the black areas with white lines. 

Here's what it looked like before I coloured it in and sent it off for the NME art department to add their lettering:

Tintin


A Tintin illustration for an article in YAWN magazine - What Tintin Means To Me | YAWN Magazine.
Drawing Tintin gave me a new appreciation of the genius of Hergé - he makes it look so easy. Snowy, in particular, is a right bastard to draw - Hergé nails it every time in just a few quick, unlaboured, squiggly lines.

Simply Danny



A Danny Brown comic I made for Vice, that never got used. Danny wasn't too keen on it, apparently.

This is the first wordless comic I've done - it originally had words, but then I realised it was funnier without them. I was pretty chuffed that I didn't have to letter the whole thing, until I figured out that when you don't have words you need twice as many panels.
The inking style is also a bit Robert Crumb influenced - I thought it'd suit the druggy nature of the comic.

Here's what the first page looks like without the colour:


..and here's a few panels that didn't get used:
