I know I have not posted anything new for ages but I have been really busy with a new big deal project I'm not allowed to talk about yet...in the meantime -
This is the first page of a strip I'm drawing written by the excellent Paul N. Neal - the strip is called DEATH BE PRAISED and is from a book Paul is putting together with some top comic talent...and me! I'll be appearing in the book alongside Glen Fabry, John McCrea and Steve Pugh so that's pretty heady company right there.

It's not often I post a historical illustration cos' frankly it's not often I get to do them...that said I present the following for your consideration. Not exactly a historical illo...but sort of.

I was asked to produce a promo/concept illo for the classic character - THE SAINT - so here it is.

Saturday, 7 August 2010

This is a  new illustration job; a cover for a book called VAMPIRES Vs WEREWOLVES...the client seems to love it so I'm happy.

Monday, 26 July 2010

I did this one about five or six weeks ago and just got around to scanning it in; I had just watched the movie HOUSE OF HORRORS with the brilliant Rondo Hatton and realy wanted to draw a comic book version of it...Hatton has one of those faces I never get tired of drawing.

And here is the last of the 'noir' illustrations; I'm done with these...for now and moving on to something new.

This is not one of the series of noir style illos but a promo image for a project of mine...this has more of a 1960's vibe for me.

Another noir illo.

Monday, 21 June 2010

Another 'noir' style illustration; I'm doing a series of these...I love noir and the crime genre, does it show?

Thursday, 17 June 2010

This is a version of my Joker illo coloured by my incredibly talented friend, JOHN KEANE.
The first in a series of 'noir' style illustrations I'm doing.

This is all Ted Naifeh's fault…yes Ted, I'm blaming you…in the nicest way possible, that is. Ted seemed to really like the Serial Batman/Joker illos I put up on Facebook…he even suggested I should do a strip in that genre/style. Well…this planted an idea in my empty little head that I just could not be rid of. I knew I did not have time what with deadlines and such to write and draw an entire strip just for fun (as much as I'd like to), but I came up with this concept of "BATMAN: THE LOST SERIAL" - as if one of those old serials from the 1940's had recently been discovered, one never seen before, and with that I thought I could draw a series of illustrations that looked like lobby cards or stills from that serial. So that's the plan, folks; I don't know how often I will be able to post these but I'll try for one a week, each featuring a classic Batman villain…and first up is the RIDDLER. Let me know if you like them.

Monday, 10 May 2010

I've been watching a slew of the old Batman film serials of late and as cheesey as they are I do love them; always bothered me though that the filmakers never used any of Batman's villains...why the heck did they not use the Joker? So, I have done my own version...this is what the Joker would have looked like in the Batman serials...I think!

When I posted this on Facebook artist/writer Ted Naifeh said, "This is the best Batman pin-up I've seen in years."  How cool is that?!

Another BLOOD NATION MOVIE announcement - this one actually gives me and the artists on the series a name check. -- http://www.shockya.com/news/2010/04/28/blood-nation-coming-to-the-big-screen/

BLOOD NATION MOVIE!!!


An article on Variety says that my mini-series from a couple of years back - BLOOD NATION - is being made into a movie.  Here's the link - http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118018415.html?categoryid=13&cs=1

DYLAN DOG...plus friends and fiends; this is one comic book I'd dearly love to draw.

Wednesday, 21 April 2010

This is a page of pencils from quite some time ago...I still like the explosion when the big critter hits the car!

Tuesday, 20 April 2010

Another BONESAW character design, one of the Talion - NERVE HOOK - this guy was a killer dentist back when he was still human...if you are creating villains it never hurts to cast one as a dentist!

Thursday, 15 April 2010

Another character design - from BONESAW this time.
This was a character design drawn for the BLOOD NATION mini-series I created; though I did not draw the book I designed all the major characters and vampires.  This one was a favourite of mine that did not make it into the series...I like to think of him as my 'bondage vampire'!

This is a warm up brush drawing from my sketchbook...yes, this is the sort of image that slithers through my widdle brain on a daily basis.
Here's a spin on the previous cover; I was going for a 1970's Italian horror film poster style with these, I think...channeling a Dario Argento vibe!
Today I am going to be posting a short series of cover roughs for my book BONESAW that used the illustration I put up a couple of days ago...all variations on a theme really; my way of visually thinking out loud.

Sunday, 11 April 2010

Pencils for the little girl figure in the cover below.
This was an unused cover illustration for BONESAW but I like the image so much I'm going to use it for another project of mine.

Wednesday, 7 April 2010

Here's the original black and white art for the cover below.
Continuing with the theme of showing the BLOOD NATION cover designs here is the colour rough for #3 featuriing our villain, THE KHAN. The titles on this cover are misleading as the original artist had left the book and the brilliant JOHN KEANE drew issues 3 and 4.

Tuesday, 6 April 2010

I'm going to continue posting some older artwork and thought I'd show some of the process of designing a cover...starting with the BLOOD NATION #2 cover I posted a couple of days ago.  This is the first rough version of that cover with a very early version of the WEREAPE.
I tried a version with the WEREAPE in red but thought it was too subtle and decided to keep it black.

I even considered using the series main villain, THE KHAN, instead of the WEREAPE but ultimately chose to go with my little monkey.



Sunday, 4 April 2010

This is the black and white art for the cover illo depicting the ferocious WEREAPE!!!
This was my cover design and illustration for #2 of BLOOD NATION a mini-series I created and wrote that came out from Platinum Studios/Image Comics a couple of years ago.

This is an illo I did for the delightful Julia Moreno and Club Batman in Spain for their anniversary...haven't drawn Batman in years so it was an interesting experience to revisit the character.

Wednesday, 17 March 2010

This is a panel from something I worked on recently...can't show all of it yet but I did like this face so thought I'd share..

Monday, 15 March 2010

This is my favorite page of BONESAW, I think it's because I tried to be a little looser in the inking.

More BONESAWand more ladies with long hair; there is a school of thought in comic book art that says when drawing a pretty girl one should use as few lines as possible...obviously I don't subscribe to that theory.

Wednesday, 3 March 2010

Another BONESAW page from early in the book: I love drawing people in general but I really enjoy drawing women with long flowing hair; gives my Gilot nib pen a chance to dance across the page.

Tuesday, 2 March 2010

This is/was/would have been the first page in the BONESAW graphic novel; I was trying to establish the creepy tone of the story from the start...which I think I pretty much achieved.
