More drawing exercises, getting messy with the ink again. These were drawn intuitively rather than planned.

Further life drawings, in flip chart marker pen and Indian Ink. I hope the image quality isn't too bad, it's just that these drawings are large (the top one is life size) and it took me an age getting a halfway decent photo of each one.

Mr Constantine and a Lovercraftian beastie; a taster page from my DC submission. I'll post the whole sequence in future.

Another from the vault.

Some landscape sketches

The first couple of pages for a ahort story set in a run down, over grown London. It ended up on the backburner as other projects monopolised my time and energy. Hopefully I'll get to do a few more pages at some point when I've finished the pletora of pieces I'm currently scribbling away at.

A little sequence with Elektra in assassin mode. Enjoyed playing around with some splatter effect on this one.

Some life drawings in pencil, charcoal and biro respectively.

The Harvestman

This one is another from the vault piece. Fans - Oh! the irony. Hopefully its legible. No disrespect meant to the great Alan Moore.

Cover piece I painted for my story Seventh Son. It's due to be published later this year; the interior artwork will be provided by my friend Andrew Richmond, (who also has his own blog of goodness).

Finally, new art to post. I'm gonna try and post something at least once a week from now on. My take on Logan, after he's lived the life of a hermit in the Ukraine for a year or three.

Thought it was time I put a little colour up, just finished this 5 mins ago.

My go at a badass (as one friend put it) Moon Knight. This four page sequence is my version of a scene from a relatively recent Moon Knight story (the name of which escapes me at the mo - but I'll check it up if anyone's interested). I've been thinking of colouring this sequence too, just to play with technique.

More recent this one, drawn just for fun.

I've had this one in my folio for a couple of years now. Have to say I really enjoyed drawing it, especially the Picasso study in the background; and to think an old tutor from my degree once said an art education is wasted on me. Maybe I'll do a series of pictures with Modern Art Masterpieces featuring in them - a pinch of the high brow.

This one was published in a Horror Anthology not so long back. It's basically a four page adaptation of HP Lovecraft's short story "Festival" and seems to prove popular. I'm a huge fan of Lovecraft and I would love to adapt Shadow Over Innsmouth, though I'd happily draw the Dunwich Horror or Call of Cthulhu etc, so if anyone out there is willing to fund me please get in touch.

This one was drawn for an article that never materialised. I no longer have the original as I auctioned it for charity at Caption a few years back. For those of you who don't know Caption, it's a convention that occurs roughly every summer; it's based in Oxford and acts as a forum or platform for independent creators and publishers. I haven't been for a few years though I really should go again.

This one's a real oldie. I was fresh outta art school and probably full of naive unearned confidence. I hope the Ministry fans out there enjoy it.

I was aiming for a Leone feel, though it's turned out more Fields of the Nephilim.

First post!
