Gonzo Cosmic #1 gets a nice unsolicited review here, after it’s spotted on Comixology Submit. Mentions of Starlin, Morrison and Kirby within, which blows my tiny little mind…
And here Ceej from Big Comic Page reviews Freak out Squares #2, the latest Unthank Comics release, and the second book in the series by Harry French that I did pencils/inks for. It’s a great review!
My most recent review for the Big Comic Page. I love X-Files, but didn’t find a huge amount to love about this reprint of the adapted-from-the-episodes series.
Ceej from The Big Comic Page reviews Freak Out Squares #2, and really likes what we’re doing – if you’d like to check it out, follow the link in the article to go to RF Comics and buy it!
Here’s a look at some digital inking of the comic strip I’m working on just now, Tax and Scratch. It’s written by Dawn Mathieson, and will be available on her website, Stark Visions.
I’m trying to loosen up a little these days, so instead of aiming for a really tight pencil finish, I’m trying a digital brush I messed around with on Photoshop CC. It’s cool to watch this back and see how loose it is – I’m encouraging myself to make things messier, and not be so obsessed with getting every line right. Mainly because that was a pretty impossible task…
I’ve been looking at different artists for inspiration recently, including Paul Pope, whose work I love, and Charles Burns. And while the latter used a really technical style, the fact that he’s using strong black ink lines is something I’m getting into more.
The lovely folk at Festival Daily also came along to Pride House in July and interviewed me and some of the staff.
Finally, the video of the Gameface residency Lucy Holmes-Elliot and I undertook at Pride House Glasgow from LEAP Sports Scotland is online! Thanks to everyone who took part, and thank you Leap Sports for a fantastic venue and experience!
