Crimbo and That
'Ey up chuck.
So, Christmas happened. Very pleasurable and full of cidery evenings and MUCH cheese.
Here's just a brief brief (not very brief) rundown of what went on Decemberwise.
Thought Bubble Video
I briefly appeared in one. Weirdly. It was weird.

Did you spot me? Weird eh?! I was speaking to John Burdis in Judge armour.
Went to see Amplifier in Bristol with milady, didn't I?! IT WAS GOOD, WASN'T IT? Kind of spacey mod-prog with whirling guitars. Better live than I expected and catchier than a sneeze in a lift.
Bought the parentals many Bristol goods for festivus and I can't recommend higher The Bristol Cider Shop, Dr Burnorium's Hot Sauce Emporium (I shit you not) and... well basically the entire of St Nicholas' Market. It's bloody magic.
Two upcoming comics THAT YOU SHOULD KEEP YOUR FACE PEELED FOR. The first is El Bigote by a true comics chap and master of Turtles PJs Matt McLocusts McLaughlin and El Ch-ch-ch-cherry Chivo
So look out for that. It'll be Van Domtastic.
Crazy Fox Appearances
Pendarves Jenkins Combination. Not sure why but it makes me very happy to see my drawings in there - probably because it's a fixtures guide that's in all the local shops and takeaways and that. Glastonbury folk will look at it and go "WHO DREW THAT SHIT".
Zarjaz/Dogbreath blog have preview'd my upcoming Tales From the Black Museum strip written by Mike Lynch. "Currently scheduled for Zarjaz 15" so that'll be next summer or thereabouts. Looking forward to seeing it in print!
Futurequake Press Blog.
Ghostpockets. Who, predictably, destroys the universe. Couldn't have been engineered by a finer chap - ! If you'd like to write a Time Tale give us a shout and we'll construct something!
Neil McClements, Mike Donachie, James Feist, Matt Soffe, Ben Moore and the Burleys.
Crazy Fox Machine on Facebook. For developments and such.
. I've since been asked about the ultimate fate of the unfortunate Moomin. He died a hero - for within him was a T-Rex Bomb (tm) that sploded and took apart the merciless lizard - saving Moominvalley. Shortly afterwards a statue was erected. But the Groke sat on it.
Three panels done for a large collaborative strip written by Dirk van Dom and presented to the 2000ad forum FOR CHRISTMAS. Other parts done by Stephen Prestwood, Filip Roncone, Neil "Bhuna" Roche and Tony Rothwell - can be seen with text in it's entirety here.
and I'll see YOU next year. Be lucky!
