Pitknack

Not so long ago, I got to pondering the current popularity of Minecraft with kids and wondering what comparisons there might be with comics during and before my childhood. Was it plausible that, in forty years time, there will a small, scattered but hardcore group of ageing individuals who will continue to play the game and refuse to put it away for adulthood? From this idle thought appeared a germ on idea I called "Pitknack". I originally intended to produce it for the on-line comic, ACES Weekly, for whom I've already had a couple of one-off strips appear. The idea was, basically, to make the story up as I went along, completing each episode one at a time and dealing with each of the plot-traps I had set myself and setting new ones every week until the seven episodes I was allotted were up. After completing four pages, another long, fermenting idea, Why Don't You Love Me?, reached critical mass and the urge to work on that obliterated Pitknack's. It's a shame as I really like what I have done for it so far and, if I didn't have a day job, would love to return and finish it.

Chancellor Osborne Master Of The Mystic Arts

I drew this sketch of Chancellor Osborne Master Of The Mystic Arts for a friend recently for use during today's budget. I'm not sure that the likeness is particularly good but I'm still quite pleased with it.

Art Exhibition

The original artwork for the opening pages of my new comic-strip, Why Don't You Love Me, is being exhibited as part of the MK Gallery's MK Calling 2015 exhibition taking place this Summer.

Why Don't You Love Me is my next big project after the recent publication of my graphic novel, There's No Time Like The Present, by Escape Books. Each page is designed to work as a stand-alone comic-strip but ultimately will lock together to tell a single, cohesive story. 

You are invited to the launch for MK Calling 2015 which is taking place on Thursday July 2nd from 6 PM. It's free to attend but you have to register for tickets at the following web address. It will be great to see you there.
