Busy times

Things have become very busy around here lately with loads of work to do. I can't reveal all the strips I'm working on but I'm plowing through pencils, pens and paper at a fast rate. Current regular work includes The Beano, Toxic, Doctor Who Magazine, and Grindhouse, plus more.

Updates to my Blimey! blog are likely to be put on hold for a while but I'll still add a few quick updates to this blog as time allows. My apologies if I don't respond quickly to e-mails or comments, but please continue leaving comments on my blogs and I'll reply whenever I can. 

Deadlines loom! Back to the drawing board!

The next Ivy the Terrible

Yesterday I showed a preview of the Ivy the Terrible strip that's in the current issue of The Beano. Now here's an advance preview of the next one, which will be out on Wednesday. Ivy gets hold of dad's new phone. It'll end in tears...

This week's Ivy the Terrible

Here's a quick preview of a panel from the Ivy the Terrible strip I drew that appears in the current Beano. Dad's struggling to get Ivy in her car seat but as usual she's giving him a terrible time. 

The latest issue sees a slight price rise to £2.20 but it's still the cheapest comic on the shelves. 36 pages of all-new funnies every Wednesday. Support the longest running British comic and Never Be Without A Beano

Zoony lives!

Here's a quick preview of the Zoony the Lazoon strip I did for the brand new issue of TV21
My original pencil roughs for the strip.
What!?! A new issue of TV21? B-but didn't that merge into Valiant in 1971? Yep, but for one issue only, Network have brought it back! Editor Martin Cater has professionally produced an all-new, 24 page full size paper edition of the comic as an exclusive part of Network's Supermarionation blu-ray box set, which is out now. More info on my other blog:

TV21 was my favourite comic of the sixties so to be asked to contribute to this one-shot revival was a dream come true! FAB!

Today's TOXIC preview

Here's a preview of panel one from the two page Team Toxic story I did for the latest Toxic magazine, out today. Doc Shock has a plan to tidy up his room, but it all backfires in A Small Problem. Buy the mag to see what happens next! Toxic No.245, available from newsagents and supermarkets. (And don't forget that the first Toxic Annual is also on sale now!)

Beano Halloween-o

Here's a quick preview of the Ivy the Terrible strip I drew for today's Beano! It's a special Halloween issue. A bit early, but that's the strangeness of modern publishing for you. I'm sure it all makes sense from a sales and marketing viewpoint. 

Here's the cover to look out for. A brilliant Minnie the Minx illustration by Nigel Parkinson and a logo dripping with red stuff! In the shops now!
