I’m knackered (normal post-Bristol feeling). This year, more than any other though, I did the things I wanted to do. Showed Bob Schreck (DC Group editor of Batman titles) my artwork and he took a copy of my portfolio and gave me a card and told me to ‘keep bothering me’. So that’s the plan. The year long plan. We’ll see how it goes, but I’m gonna gather up half a dozen Batman/batman related strips and do 5 pages at least every two months (if I was any kinda hard case I’d do 22 pages of pencils every month) and post them off. I’m feeling confident (despite knowing exactly how many other 2000AD creators were also pitching to Bob) and I’m even looking forward to doing the samples. The megazine, apparently, is going to be publishing more original material so I’m hopeful I might get some work there (although, again, I know how many other talented guys are out there). I’m currently in a state of blissful ignorance of my own in-abilities – and long my it continue.
