We Love Katamari is one of my all-time favourite games. I have a first-generation PS2 that still runs, even though it sounds like a lawnmower and WLK is pretty much the game that's always in it. This game never fails to cheer me up and my life-long ambition is to roll up The King Of All Cosmos which I struggle to do every time. One day...

I'm trying to get back into the habit of drawing in my sketchbook every day, either before I leave for work, or in the evening when I'm vegging in front of the telly. I'm rather fond of trying to draw things without looking - might do some more of those! :P

Some of my video game based prints will be displayed at an awesome exhibition as part of the London Games Festival in October! Lots of other talented peeps and game developers will also be exhibiting which should make it a really great show. Team 17 are also part of it which made my 11 year old self squeal for joy and want to get my Amiga out of the loft so I could play Alien Breed. Unfortunately (not too unfortunately though), I'll be at MCM on the weekend of the show itself so I wont be able to see it, but hopefully some pics will make it out! All of the work will be auctioned off to charity so get along to it if you want to own some amazing video game art and donate to a worthy cause.

I went to see Dredd 3D a couple of weeks ago and it was pretty good; I wasn't particularly bothered about watching it and went in with zero expectations and really enjoyed it. The 3D was actually worth seeing and I loved the atmosphere and minimalism. Even though I worked in a comic shop for over 3 years, I never really picked up any 2000AD. I had one issue of it that my mum bought me for holiday reading back in 1994 (was never quite sure what made her pick it up as me and my brother had never bought 2000AD). I still have that comic somewhere and the one story I really remember from it is Slaughterbowl which I can't find anywhere but would love to read again. I'm quite tempted to pick up a couple of the Judge Dredd case files at some point and give Dredd a proper go.
My very talented other half, John-Paul Bove is currently colouring/grey-toning a story for the Judge Dredd Megazine at the moment and also coloured a cover for the upcoming IDW series, drawn by Jim Starlin no less! Anyway, seeing the film gave me a push to actually draw a Dredd (apologies to the many people who have asked me to for years!) and quite enjoyed doodling him and his satisfying colour scheme!

My new small press book, The Rather Odd Alphabet was delivered today! It's 32 pages of weird and wonderful animals and words and you'll be able to pick it up from me at all the comic cons I'll be attending. However, if you simply cannot wait that long, it's also available in my online store. Be sure to check out my other books which now have new prices and shipping prices! :D

I've got a few comic cons left for this year and I should also have a few new books for them too.
Bristol Comic and Zine Fair - a small one day zine fair on the 23rd of September. I've never done this one before so hopefully it'll be a nice little fair!
MCM Expo - I'll be in the Comic Village again this October for more fun and frolics!
Thought Bubble - There's an awesome line-up of creators at TB this year - I cannot wait!
Hope to see you all at one of these!
