Second chance for sketches!

My thanks to those of you who bid on some of my sketches last week. I'll be posting out the art to the winners over the next couple of days. A handful of the sketches didn't receive any bids so I'm putting those on eBay again for another week. Here's the link if you're interested:

Back in the Beano!

I'm pleased to announce that I'll be back in the Beano from the issue that goes on sale on 7th March, writing and drawing a new series. It's only a mini-strip, and I can't say what it is yet, but it's an established strip I haven't drawn before. 

I'm happy to be back in the UK's longest-running comic in this its 80th year! More news soon!

Sketches up for auction!

 A couple of years ago I drew several never-before-seen characters for the "Sketch a day" concept. They were shown online, on this very blog for one place, but never published in print. I've now put the original artwork for 17 of the drawings on eBay, so if you're interested, please take a look:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/graphite47

Each drawing is on A5 size paper, 200gsm weight, in black ink. Light blue pencil construction lines are visible on most on them. 

Monsters! Oddballs! Even a vicar. All life is there. Thanks in advance for any bids! Good luck!

Combat Proof!

My printer sent me the print proof of Combat Colin No.2 yesterday. That's a one-off copy to check that everything's ok, - and it was, so I've asked him to proceed with the print run. 

My thanks for your patience. I was originally hoping to get issue 2 out last November but mainstream comics work had to take priority. It'll be out soon though! Watch this space for future announcements!

For a bit of fun, I've merged the two together here so you can see how the construction lines work...

Pencil: Primacolor Col-Erase 20068 Light Blue
Inks: Zig Mangaka Flexible Fine, UniPin Fine Line (various sizes).
Colour: Photoshop.
Lettering: Fonts bought from Comicraft.

Combat Colin No.2 will be out in a few weeks time and will be available directly from me at my online shop! More news soon!
