I'm very happy to announce that Brains Etc. is now available for the Kindle through Amazon! The lovely folks at Zeta Comics are also working on a Brains Etc. colouring app too so I'll keep you all up to date. This is a rather exciting start to the New Year and I can't wait to get started on my new comics for them. I've got two more activity books lined up with them and I'm literally bursting with ideas and can't wait to get started. Brains Etc. will also be available in print later in January. If you've already bought a copy from me at a con this year, the edition through Zeta Comics has more pages drawn especially for this version so you wouldn't be wasting your money! :P

This is what the last three and a bit months of my life look like in paper:

One of new comics/activity books that will be out for next year's cons is a as-of-yet-untitled book based on H.P Lovecraft and his works. Above is the kind of thing you can expect to see in the book! I'll post a few more pages as and when they're done; keep an eye out in 2012 for the finished article! :P
The four kid's books I've been working on since September are now over - hooray! I can't wait for them to come out; my work will be alongside a different colour artist for each book so it will be interesting to see how they all go together! Hopefully I will be doing another book in the series in the New Year too; just waiting on more info from the editor!
I can now spend some time playing on my DS, reading my Kindle and working on some new comics for next year's cons!

I'm pleased to say that the Jurassic Dorks' first exhibition was a big success! We all had a great time and got a great response from the people who came to have a gander. For those of you who couldn't make the show, we're selling copies of the show book. It's an epic 32 page, A4, full colour tome signed by all the artists. If you'd like one, they're £12 each and that includes postage and packaging in the UK. For overseas peeps, the price is £16 postage and packing included. Please Paypal myself at venkman(dot)project(at)googlemail(dot)com.

Here are a couple of bits from the Diggers activity book and the Dinosaur activity book I'm currently working on. Saying that, the Diggers book is finished and the dino book is very nearly finished! I'm really enjoying the dino book; it's scary that I can draw most dinosaurs from memory with pretty accurate proportions but I'm still terrible at drawing people. If you ever need a rather dynamic looking Pterodactyl though, I'm your girl! :P

I'm in the process of adding some new bits to my portfolio at the moment. I'm finally at a stage where I'm in some way proud of my body of work and thought I'd colour up some of the black and white pieces I've done for the children's activity books I'm drawing at the moment. My favourite book to have drawn so far has been the Baby Animals book, for obvious reasons! I really enjoyed doing this page; in the book, this illustration has some objects on it that don't belong in a vet's office and readers have to circle what they are. I changed it slightly to be a straight forward page to add to my portfolio. The space at the top could do with something though!
