Leeds Alternative Comics Fair 5, Christmas Special


It’s been a bit longer than the usual 6 months since the last fair as me and fellow organiser Hugh ‘Shug’ Raine have been a bit distracted with amateur dramatics and pulling out of buying houses amongst other things, but LACF5 is going to take place on the 8th December at the usual venue, A Nation of Shopkeepers. We thought it be a bit different having the fair in the run up to Christmas, and maybe our attendees will be more interested in buying stuff as gifts as well as for themselves, we’ll see, but if it has a similar attendance to last time we’ll be well happy.
I should have some new stuff for it, I will probably make a short comic out of my strip for the Jonathan Cape/Observer Graphic Short Story Prize which I’ve just sent off and I’m very happy with, and I’ve got my vampire story nearly finished which I could easily knock up into a minicomic. I’ll probably also make a print of my ‘Don’t Confront Me‘ picture, and there’s maybe some other things i’ve done recently that would make good poster/prints.
Anyway, It promises to be a goodun so please come down, the facebook group is here, and LACF related tweets are here

The Shadow, a Vampire and a Monster of the Schwarzwald

Wassup dogs? I seem to be starting a lot more projects than i’m finishing at the moment, probably cos i’m they’re unpaid and i don’t have any deadlines, so i’ll get bored when it gets to the hard bit and move on to something that’s temporarily more exciting. Anyway, the first thing to tell you about is a thing I finished (because I got paid for it), a One Hour Drawing commission from Alan Henderson, who collects drawings of The Shadow, and I was more than happy to supply him with mine. If you want me to do a One Hour Drawing for you, all the details are here, it’s very straightforward. For process fans, here’s the sketch in blue pencil and brown brush pen, followed by the finished article which is mostly done in pentel brush pen.


Next up is a strip about a vampire (cashing in the twilight craze, natch) which I intended to enter into a competition, but i somehow found myself doing it in full colour with watercolours against my will, and it was too much work to make the deadline. it’s currently languishing in a state of two-thirds completeness, but the good news is it will be made into a minicomic for the next con I do, whenever that may be.

Lastly, my next project is a series of pencil drawings of Monsters of the Schwarzwald, featuring picturesque views of the Black Forest in Germany, and the monsters that (probably) live there. I’m really enjoying drawing in pencil, i’ve not done it for ages (not as the finished product anyway). I’m gonna see how these go and whether they might make a nice little book or series of prints or something. This is the nearly-finished version, will probably finish it later today and start another one (picture, not project, got to draw the line somewhere). Draw the line ha ha ha ha ha! See you next time pig lovers!

NEWZROUND- Olympic Special

I’ve had a bit of a break over the last week from most of my endeavours, but just so everyone’s aware of what’s going on:

Space Wars is about a quarter of the way in, here’s a page with MechaGoliath vs Laser Skeleton. I’m still working out some of the finer points of the presentation though.
Banal Pig 5 is also in progress, with 1 completed page and about 12 in progress, and i’ve got a strong idea of what the finished product will be with this one, the question is whether i’ll ever be able to afford to print it…
I’m also planning on entering the Observer/ Jonathan Cape Graphic Short Story Competition this time around, so I’m working on something for that but i’m keeping the details of that under wraps to prevent any industrial espionage.
Don’t forget to check out my original comic art for sale, along with star wars and other poster prints and I can draw you a one hour pic for £20.

Lastly, i’ve put my copy of the mega-anthology Kramers Ergot Volume 7 on ebay, it’s now out of print and hard to find- why not have a bid?

Newzround- Banal Pig 5 Previews

‘Sup pig lovers? As usual, i’ve got a few things on the boil at the moment- Space Wars, a top secret 4 page full colour strip and Banal Pig 5 (as well as Untitled Ape’s Untitled Adventure, which I get round to when I can), none of which I can afford to print at the moment, but maybe one day. On that subject, I might well have to go back to working for The Man fairly soon as buying a house and earning virtually no money are not very compatible, and we’re buying a house. Anyway, here’s some panels from Banal Pig 5:

They are previews from Fez Man, Irate Robot and Jolly Bear in various states of completeness, i’ve currently got about 12 pages on the go from BP5, but i’ve got a good idea of the shape of the whole thing, which will be a bit different from previous banal pigs as it has an central story arc running through all the strips.

More newz soon, please feel free to commission something or buy stuff from me in the meantime (apologies for these pathetic requests for money, hopefully things will pick up soon and i will regain my dignity).

p.s. not many Star Wars prints left, get yours now if you want one.

p.p.s. sorry again
