I`ve been working like a motherlicker recently but my scanner is fecked and I just got a new computer so I haven`t really had time to anything with the wacom....
Anyway the Dublin City Comic con yoke was a blast.sad to see a serious lack of young folk walking around,though.Especially since I only really started developing as an "awtist" when I went to cons and got some sound advice from some of the Irish lads and I`d hate for that to become a thing of the past since comics really need new blood to survive.
On that side of things the 2D Festival in Derry really deserves big respect.The atmosphere is fantastic and it`s great to see the varying types of people wandering in.
And also,if you have any sense at all you`d pick up "Tim Skinner:Total Scumbag" by Andy Winter and Declan Shalvey.I had tears of laughter running down my cheeks while reading this.
And the lovely full colour artwork doesn`t hurt either.

Here`s a "little sketch" that ended up taking a verrrry long time.
it was originally just a pencil sketch I do to loosen up a bit before I draw but then I really started to like the whole "confused simpleton"vibe coming off it and turned it into a Bizarro.I really love the way some mainstream characters like Bizarro work best when a more"independant comics" approach is taken rather than the usual non-identifiable mush that fills (mainly DC,I have to say)comics on the shelves now...
Funny thing is,I`ve been busting a nut trying to draw a good Bizarro for about a week now,and I only really cracked it by mistake!Ah well,them`s the breaks...
anyhoo,all done with a flexible brushpen,big Pentel marker thingie and red marker.
