What’s up BP lovers? Long time no blog, but I’ve been getting on with a few bits and pieces. Firstly, here’s my first proper self portrait, commissioned by Bob Turner as part of his comic artists self portraits series . I’m pretty pleased with it, the idea was to represent how I draw, which is basically to hunch over any given surface with a pile of drawings and reference material. This was a one-hour drawing too, so it came together pretty quickly (you too can commission a one-hour drawing from me hereed).

Elsewhere, I did this quick strip called Sandwiches which was apropos of nothing, done mainly because I enjoyed drawing on my new rough sketchpad (Boyes, 49p). It was drawn in brushpen straight onto the page real quick like, which is why it’s a bit rough and the text is a bit wonky, but you get the idea…

Also elsewhere, Ethel Sparrowhawk 3 is coming together slowly but surely, I’m a few pages into it and we’re just finishing the broader story outline which will feature death and dinosaurs as well as awkwardness, betrayal and dinosaurs, so it should be a rollercoaster of fun (also dinosaurs). Here’s a rough pic as a little preview:

There’s also exciting news about Comely Girls afoot, the long overdue follow up to Manly Boys, my collaboration with Gareth Brookes about the brutality of childhood.

And if you’re desperate for BP updates, please follow my tumblr as there’s more updates and randoms on there.
