WACOM!


I have the wacom for about three months or something now,but I`ve only really been using it as a way to plot out pages and to touch up photo`s so there was nothing really to show up until now.

Here`s a little bit I did with the Wacom Bamboo as a backdrop to the text.I love just doing stuff like this where there`s no real reason for doing it.It`s really nice to be able to go through the fonts and stuff you have and to see them in practical use without the burden of having to size it out to be photocopied or whatever.Like sometimes I just draw a comic for the sake of drawing one,which really gives you more room to be as sketchy and loose as you like.


And also I got a dvd of the infamous unreleased Fantastic Four film from the nineties in the post today.I`ve always been interested in those "dodgy science and dodgier special effects"
films,but throw in the fact that it`s an unreleased superhero movie and I`m sold!well anyway it follows the basic plot of the 2005 one but there`s a kind of Moleman character in there as well,and funnily enough,I think the nineties one got the feeling of Dr.Doom way better than the new one ...

It`s hilariously shit but I`ve been looking for it ever since I heard about it a year or so ago,so it`s a fanboy dream fulfilled for me.

BOXER!


Well here`s a little piece I did just to get back into the feel of using inks again.I`m especially liking throwing red into a b+w pic as I think it adds that little something to it.Also I like the imagery of boxing and boxers.I`d like to do a little comic about the sport.There`s loads of ideas I can think of for such a comic but at the moment I`m swaying towards a comic with a few small stories in it I could call "Boxer Shorts".Classy.

but on another note,vote for Declan Shalvey`s cover(heat 2,entry f) for War Heroes here:http://www.wizarduniverse.com/warheroescovercompetitionvoting2.html

Cheers!

DERRY!


I was up in Derry on saturday for the 2d festival.It`s a lovely city and the festival was the bee`s knee`s!Dec was knocking out batmans like they were going out of fashion and he also did one of the best Marv`s I`ve ever seen.Second only to Miller`s.

And speaking of Dec,I was looking at his blog( http://dshalv.blogspot.com/) and found a pic of yours truly with Bob Byrne!And on top of that he put a link to this blog.Sound!(hope he doesent mind me nicking the picture...)
