Drawing In Colour

I've been dissatisfied with my working practices (and the end results) for a while now and have started putting some changes into effect that will hopefully make creating artwork easier and more enjoyable for me.

Part of this is a renewed focus on proper experimentation in my sketchbook.  I've started dicking about with cheap felt pens, building up characters in blocks of colours, with limited line work.  It's pretty rough at the moment, but I'm feeling reinvigorated by the process, so it's definitely doing some good.

Moose Kid 2 in print

Behold Jamie Smart's Moose Kid 2 in glorious print.  It really is beautiful - massive and printed on lovely paper stock.  I've got a one-page story in there, continuing the questionable adventures of Sir Tiny Smallbottom, short-sighted monster hunter.

This is one of a short run of contributor copies, but there are some limited stocks available at the Cartoon Museum and Gosh! Comics in London, so get to it.  Otherwise, you can read the whole thing for free online.

Moose Kid Comics 2

The new issue of Jamie Smart's amazing all-ages anthology Moose Kid Comics is out and I've contributed another thrilling instalment of Big Things Hiding Behind Small Things.  This time, Sir Tiny Smallbottom is hunting monsters on his home turf.

You can read the comic in it's entirety here.  It's brilliant and completely free.

I spent the majority of 2011-2012 picking away at a longer story called Gauntlet, which was to be a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story about holiday camps, arcade games and being a shy kid. 

For various reasons it never really clicked - my working methods were all over the place and I never actually wrote a full script, choosing to work (for some inexplicable reason) in little segments, hoping they would piece together.  In hindsight, this was never going to result in a satisfying narrative.

I've thought about going back to it a few times, but after getting into Adventure Time years later, the mix of kid banter and sword and sorcery sequences don't feel as fresh to me now.  So, for your perusal, here's some of the better work produced for it...
