Team Toxic preview

It's been a busy week and I have a busier few days ahead drawing the next Daft Dimension, plus the start of a new series for a certain comic, and a one-off job. (More details about those at a later date.) I won't have a lot of time for blogging so here's an advance preview of a couple of panels from next week's Team Toxic adventure. You'll find it in Toxic No.267, on sale Wednesday 10th February from newsagents and supermarkets everywhere!

Enniskillen for May

I'm pleased to add another event to my busy convention diary for 2016. I've been invited to the Enniskillen Comic Fest on May 6th/7th. I've never been to Northern Ireland before so I'm looking forward to it! 

I know that some of you can't always make it over to England for the comics shows here so I hope to see you at Enniskillen! For more info, check out their official Facebook page:

Visit The Astral Gypsy

I was in Coventry today taking my records to my accountant, so I thought I'd drop in at The Astral Gypsy in Fargo Village. This is an excellent shop selling art supplies, comics, and graphic novels, and is run by the fantastic artist Al Davison and his wife Maggie. It was good to have a chat with them and I bought a few tools of the trade while I was there, namely Zig Cartoonist Mangaka Flexible pens that I always use now, a new clutch pencil with blue leads, and a Kuratake brush pen, which is new to me.

If you're in Coventry, I reccommend you pay Al a visit at his shop. You'll find more info on The Astral Gypsy Facebook page here:

The Daily Stringertoon - 18

Quick doodle.

Stick to the facts

A quick reminder that this week's issue of Marvel Fact Files spotlights the history of Marvel UK (or at least their superhero comics). Amongst the various features is an article I wrote, and you can find out more about it on this post I did on my other blog a few weeks ago:
