I was commissioned by the Beano to draw a joke page for this week's issue. The brief was to feature mice scurrying around the floor of the classroom and to make them resemble the Bash Street Kids. I thought I'd make them cheeky mice going after a bag of cheesy snacks that someone had left of their desk.
It was a fun page to draw. The Beano supplied the mouse-themed jokes they're saying. I hope there'll be more work for Beano in the future as I miss working for them. They'll be working on the Christmas issue now though so unfortunately it doesn't look like I'll be in the comic again until next year at the earliest.
Here's how my page looked during the inking stage on 21st August next to the script on which I'd scribbled a few character roughs. I completed the page the same day, coloured it in Photoshop, and emailed it to Beano HQ...
