There's me on 8th September 1985, 26 years old drawing a Brickman story for Swiftsure No.6.
Swiftsure was an independent anthology comic published by Martin Lock's Harrier Comics company. It did actually pay a page rate. Not as much as the big companies, but it paid.
I was still living at my mum's house back then, in case you were wondering about the floral wallpaper! I used the spare room as a studio. Well, I say studio. A flat table to draw on, and the rest of the room piled up with comics. Different address now, and I have a proper drawing board, but I'm still surrounded by comics.
Want to see the story I was drawing that day 29 years ago? Here you go...
This strip and more can be seen in the Brickman Begins! book, available from my website. The book is advised for mature readers only as it's a bit rude in places:http://www.lewstringer.com/page7.htm
