This weekend I will be at the MCM Expo peddling my wares! I have lots of bargainous bargains for the weekend and Christmas is coming up! :P First up, don't forget to print off your voucher for money off at my stall:
I've also got some awesome Bomberman/Katamari prints for £3. My medium-sized character paintings will be on special offer at £20 each or 2 for £35 - a deal not to be missed!

I also have a billion character prints for £1.50 each; collect them all! :P

It should be a good weekend so please pop by and say hi!

Drawing, moving and sleeping.

Firstly, apologies for being so rubbish with my blogging since getting back from New York; I have good excuses! First up, myself and my fiancee are currently waiting for our new house to be officially movable into-able. Thanks to the most shocking solicitors ever (no names but I will gladly tell anyone who emails just so they never have to put up with the level of sheer incompetence we had to!) we've had to wait way longer than we have for the whole process to go through. So at the moment we are both holed up in JP's flat, surrounded by boxes and with limited internet access, waiting for our new (very good) solicitors to clean up the mess left by the other ones. I hate being in this state of limbo as I'm finding it hard to get into any kind of work routine and generally feel a bit miserable about the whole situation. However, I've now officially started work on the kid's book I'm doing which is good! It's an activity book based on trains and railways which is a challenge! It's also a lot of fun though and the spreads are coming through thick and fast which means little time to do my own work at the moment. But I'm not going to complain! :P With any luck, everything will be sorted by next week and I can look forward to a new house with a new studio :D It also means I will be able to catch up on much needed sleep...
I will also be off to London this weekend for the MCM Expo which should be good fun. I'll be flogging the usual prints, paintings, greetings cards, keyrings and other geegaws so come along and say hi!

Back in the Uck!

Well, my wonderful jaunt to NY is over and I'm a little bit grumpy! It was an awesome holiday with many highlights including the New York Comic Con, pictured above. I will upload my photos when I have time but here's a good one that includes: Michael Bell, an awesome voice actor and all 'round fantastic guy that you've probably heard in a billion cartoons and not realised (he was Chuckie's dad, Chaz, in Rugrats as well as Angelica's dad, Drew!); our awesome friend Mario without whom we wouldn't have gone in the first place; Casey Coller, Transformers artist and flat out wonderful guy; Pia Guerra, artist of Y-The Last Man (awesome lady - so nice!); Shane McCarthy, spiffing Auzzie and Transformers and Deadpool writer and humble ol' me!
Overall highlights of the trip included: Meeting Bruce Campbell at NYCC, seeing the Ghostbusters firehouse, getting proposed to in New England, the top of the Empire State Building, finding an awesome publisher and getting free books from them and too many other things to remember. Expect sketch book journal pages soon!

Check Out Hero Chan!

Hero Chan is a rather awesome blog dedicated to all things Superhero! It's a new blog and one that I think will become very popular. And not just because of some of the images that grace the left-hand side of the screen...
One of the founders of Hero Chan is Justin Page, a graphic designer from America who runs one of my favourite blogs ever, Rampaged Reality - an awesome collection of video game, film and superhero artwork from all over the web. I've been featured on both blogs and it's always a pleasure to know my work is watched by these talented peeps!

Some good news!

A few weeks back, I did some spec work for an art director for a proposed activity book that will be released by a rather good publisher. I received word today that I got the gig! I can't say too much at the moment but it's a really fun project and could potentially lead to more work through said publishers. It's a very tight deadline however, so I'm going to be very busy when I get back from New York! I'm very chuffed as I feel like I've been working towards this for a long time; I plan to work my ass off for the deadline and really make the most of this. Wish me luck! ;P

Noo Yoik!

As of the 5th of October, I will be off to the Large Fruit that is New York! While I am immensly excited, I'm also very stressed as myself and my partner are in the middle of buying a house and everything has pretty much gone wrong from the start. It means we have to make sure we keep in touch with all involved whilst we are away which is more than a little bit rubbish but cannot be helped. I'll be trying not to let this ruin the trip though as this will be my first time to America. I have a shiny new sketchbook to keep a travel journal in (one day I will scan and post my sketchbooks from Japan, Prague and Florence!).
Things I'm looking forward too: Meeting Bruce Campbell, finding the Ghostbusters HQ, seeing awesome friends, going the Massachusetts, the food and seeing how people to my British accent!
No doubt I will have plenty to blog about when I get back :D

Character Bonanza!

After looking through my blog for something the other day, I realised just how many existing characters I've cuted up! Here they all together; they can also be bought as separate prints from my online store. Please note though that although my shop will be open, from the 4th-15th of October I will be away so any orders will be filled and sent upon my return.
