Mid April Adventures

This is from the last meeting of the Bristol Comic Creators - the theme was "cosmonaut" so I drew Spider-Man doing shit ventriloquism. As is the way of drunken artjams.
The next one is on May 14th as always at the Golden Guinea and it's OPEN TO ALL - the FB event is here RSVP if you fancy it - !

Over on Comicsy I did an interviewy type thing about inspirations, philosophies and that sort of thing - you can read it all here - and I hope it doesn't make me sound the enormous douche that I am.
Laydees Do Comics had a splendiferous event the other week in Bristol town and I hobbled along and had a gander. Put together by Paula Knight it was a nice speaking-cake-and-comics type thing and I highly recommend it.

The three speakers were Rosie Faragher of Loaf, an amazingly enthusiastic Joff Winterhart wot did "Days of the Bagnold Summer" and the hilarious Hannah Berry who has done bloody loads of awesome stuff and did quite an informative mini-lecture on the mechanics of making sequential art scary.
Another Dreddhead - this time of Zippy, I've done two since the last blog and NOW there's a central place for all of them - - I'll be slowly uploading all of them and all the new ones will go there. So if you want your finger on the DREDDHEAD PULSE... then. Well follow it.

Finally - I've been doing a bit of flatting for the glorious Kev Levell & Matt Soffe for "Banned Across the Universe" by ROK comics written by the legendary John Freeman. Very psyched to be involved in this, even in just a flatting capacity. For folk that don't know flats are basic colours laid down before proper colouring (shading, lighting etc) are laid down. It's a fiddly and time-consuming task and so the job is often outsourced. It may seem dull but even flatting Kev's stuff is a bloody joy and I can't wait to see what the amazing Mr Soffe does with it :D
