Thought Bubble

Today I booked a hotel and secured a pro pass for the Thought Bubble festival in Leeds. I’ll be taking along some photocopies of the work I’ve been doing, they’ll probably be all crumpled up in my pocket. If you can find me, please feel free to ask for a sneaky peak, I’ll be more than happy to oblige, as long as you keep mum. The picture above is the banner from the guests page of the festival website… There’s some great talent going, I feel very honoured to be included and I’m really looking forward to it.

*UPDATE* News just in, it seems now I will be taking part in the ‘From Panel to Film’ Panel on Saturday the 20th at the Royal Armouries Hall between 11:30-12:30, hosted by John Mosby. I’ll be up there with Andy Diggle, Richard Starkings and my buddy Adam Brockbank.

sneakpeak

Here’s another little peak of what I’ve been up to… it’s difficult to choose anything that doesn’t give too much away at this point.

At the moment I’ve decided to draw it chronologically… When I last drew comics I’d jump about in order to retain some sort of consistency in the artwork and maybe to prevent boredom… but this time I thought it might be nice to see how both the characters and the artwork develops. Also in terms of discipline it will stop me avoiding difficult pages and possibly reward me with several easy ones in a row.

However, I must confess to already jumping forward for two pages, but one is a flashback, to before the current events and the other one is a dream sequence, which I’ve mentioned before (here) – so they shouldn’t really count.

Well, that’s the plan for now anyway, if I don’t stick to it I’ll let you know.

Meanwhile here’s a few boards I did a while back which I forgot to post (here)
