The Dandy Annual 2019 is here!

Yes, it's only July but The Dandy Annual 2019 is out now, well in time for Christmas! I have four Keyhole Kate pages in this, plus a puzzle page. It's always an honour to contribute to a book that I used to have every Christmas when I was a child. (Today I'm drawing a page for the 2020 annual!) 

The Dandy Annual 2019, 112 pages of all-new stories. Available now from the D.C. Thomson shop and other online sellers.

My Sonic art on You Tube

25 years ago, I drew a couple of pages on spec for Sonic the Comic. I didn't get the job as an artist, but, as some of you know, they did employ me as a writer for several years so all was good. I later sold my unused pages to a collector, and he's now made a little video on YouTube showing them, panel by panel. Works quite well. (The story is a cliffhanger as they were just sample pages so don't expect a neat ending.)

New event for September!

I'm pleased to add another event to my convention schedule for this year. On Saturday 8th September I'll be at the High Vis Street Culture Festival in Digbeth, Birmingham. (The event runs for two days but I'll just be there for one.) This is a brand new event, and different to the usual comic con in that it focuses on dance, music, and the arts. Should attract a new crowd, so I'm looking forward to it!

Hunt Emerson will be another comics guest, and I'm sure others will be added soon too. I'll post more details as they emerge but for now you can follow their Twitter account for more info!
