In the new Diamond Previews catalog for February issue 3 of Wasted the adult humour title features a cover by Simon Bisley the image is ''the Buddha'' of Tales of the Buddha rockin out ,i was thrilled when Alan Grant told me the Biz was drawing fat chops for the cover here it is
i love drawing that strip as it makes me laugh out loud every time i read the scripts Alan Grant is a genius writer i feel very blessed that i got to draw them.

Just finished a hush hush job which I'll be able to talk about next month, now back drawing layouts and approving pencils on Hamlet for Classical Comics .
glad to report seems the Classical line of books went down well at the NCTE in Philadelphia 3 day show.
by the way if anyone wants a commission drawn for a loved one for a Xmas prezzie you better get in touch with me soon so i can fit them in my schedule
the picture is one of the things I'm selling on my private art collection gallery on comicfanart.com it's a poster of Shinobi master ninja drawn i think 1993 using inks and markers and pencils I'll try and get a decent scan done of this

This was drawn for a 2000A.D fan Karl Kennedy (who has every issue of the galaxies greatest magazine), Karl wanted to be drawn as a Judge next to Judge Dredd during the Apocalypse War ,this was a lot of fun to draw, in all it took me 2 days to complete a day for pencils and a day inking.

Just noticed this blog had hit over the 10 thousand hits mark, thanks to everyone who has spared the time to view my work and updates.
can't show anything new at the moment due to contracts and getting permission to show what I've been up to the last few months ,i should be ok to show a Dredd commission in a few days though.

My brother kindly bought me this book today to cheer me up 600 pages of Dave Gibbons arty goodness and a great read from the mighty scribe Frank Miller.
i love Martha Washington it's going to be great to read her life story all over again in this fantastic very heavy hard back slip case edition ,a great production job by the Dark Horse publishing crew , if this book gets Hollywood twitchy to do a movie i hope they get Beyonce to do it , any way a top read and product worth buying to fill a very large Christmas stocking.
Found this in one of my old folio's a pitch i made to DC comics and 2000A.D way back in 1993 ,i didn't get the gig ,shame as i thought Alan Grant and John Wagner would have had fun writing this.

Had the pleasure to meet up with Rufus Dayglo in London on Friday after i had a business meeting there ,we went for a beer and a bite to eat and Rufus showed me some Tank Girl covers and Tankie comic madness, wonderful work full of humour action and detail i really enjoy looking at his work.
Rufus is a huge fan of Comic art just like me so it was great to catch up and chin wag about stuff.
TANK GIRL Skidmarks issue 1 is out this month from Titan drawn by Rufus it's brilliant Alan Martin writes a cracking fun romp and the book will give you a big fat grin.
go buy !!
