Very tired, going to bed. Up this morning at 6 to drop Annette off at the airport then went straight into work. Gonna go to bed and watch Reign Of Fire. I think



Oops… deadline close, better start. Pg 1 mostly pencilled inked a couple of panels.

Been working many many many hours at my 9-5 job (or, on occasion, my 5:45am to 6:00pm job) which has knackered me for drawing, but gotta get this done. Annette’s away next week which might give the chance to do it all.

Back to the drawing board

And in a surprising move, Mr Holden went back to his drawing table and completely redrew page 3 – cus it was crap. Also redrew another panel and if I’ve time I’d redraw the entire thing, but I don’t so I won’t.

Dredd Finished

Well, I’m pretty much finished the Dredd, might tidy up a couple of panels over the weekend. Don’t like it – so what’s new. Based on it would I give me any more work? Nope, but then if I were a comic editor I’d never give me any work at all – still, I’m cheap and that’s what counts.

I’ve set up a basic template in photoshop to help me put the artwork together once it’s scanned and it’s been useful for pasting panels together – so instead of six pages of artwork I’ve about 10 all over the bloody place, panels here and there.

Gonna post it off as a CD on Monday.

What’s up next: well, work looks to be full time again for the next week at least (massive computer deliveries). I’ve still gotta finish Nick’s Cages script (argh, how long has that been?) and I’ve to tuck into Jason Cobley’s Bulldog script. All the while still pushing to get work from 2000AD and Warhammer (and we all now that I only want to work for Warhammer/2000AD – [delete as appropriate] cus they’re my fav).

Anyway go out tomorrow and pick up some paper, and try and actually become an artist, some times I get so wrapped up in making sure the anatomy is right, the storytelling is right and the background is drawn right that I forget that it’s art – so I want to play around with drawing.
