This hasn't been a good year and I've been very low and demoralised at times but I'm grateful to the editors and various people who did commission me for work. From Pup Parade in the Beano, to Sgt.Shouty in The77, from one-offs such as the Liverpool Heartbeat comics, to the Stingray special, to The Kirknewton Story, and of course my monthly Daft Dimension strip in Doctor Who Magazine, and other jobs such as the occasional Bad Pets in Animal Planet magazine, I enjoyed drawing them all. Recently I was asked to draw three activity pages for the Beano and they'll appear in January and February of 2023.
also very grateful to those of you sent a donation, or who bought my comics and some of my original art
pages. Last but certainly not least my thanks to the convention organisers who invited me to their events in 2022, and to the numerous people who I met there and did sketches for.
Looking ahead, I have bits and bobs to complete over the next month or so but beyond that I don't know what the future holds. Whatever happens next, you'll read about it here or on my other social media pages, all being well.
In the summer of 2023 it'll be 40 years since my career in comics began, so I hope I can reach that milestone and keep busy in this precarious business.
At the end of the day all we can do is give life our best shot. I've made some lifestyle changes this year to improve my health and I'm determined to continue in that direction for the future. For today though, thank you for following this blog and for your support over the years. Wishing you a Happy New Year for 2023!
