...or something. Took a while to get him. He may still change before he's committed to the final page.

Was looking a lot at Bill Pope for reference. Naturally, it ends up looking nothing like him. The eyebrows were a happy accident.

Some concept sketches. Klegg's fun to draw even if he's undergone a little reinvention here.

Getting there, piece by piece. Still pretty rough but good bones to build on. Still having fun. Ask me again in a month with a deadline looming.

Or certainly the version I'd like to watch...! Faux-2000AD cover for the forum monthly competition. Theme this month is spin-offs - taking a minor character and giving them their own series. Not much minor about Golgotha, I s'pose, but first thing that came to mind was "Hunger Games" as a logline. Probably got a bit carried away but the man himself, Brian Bolland, is a guest judge this month so didn't want to just half-arse it.

Putting my piece of shit below to shame - here's the almighty McMahon's pencils for a bunch of commissions (which means mine is on the way, I hope!). Very rare to see the pencils up close before they're inked but look at how delicately these are put together. Breathtaking, really. Can't stop looking at them.

As always, click on the images to enlarge them or even better, just go to Mick's website HERE to see more of them.

Dredd and a half...

...Mean Machine...

...The Last American...

...and "You're next, Punk!" Awesome.


Yes, Dredd again. Sue me.

Slowly working through it. Seven pages in all. Think I've about three of them very loosely tied down. Once I have them all laid out, I'll go back and change them, I'm sure. Push the angles and compositions a bit. Make sure it's not too same-y.

They're never exactly written in stone though. Here's a thumbnail from The Hills of Hellfire, My Love in ZARJAZ #16...

Never miss an opportunity to procrastinate, stress yourself into oblivion because there's a deadline looming and chop and change right down to the wire, that's what I always say. The panel in the bottom right corner in the thumbnail eventually became the first panel of the next page. Here's the finished page (minus lettering, obviously)...

Click to enlarge, as always.

The battle continues.


Yes, I know. More Family Guy stuff. Posted this because I like how it turned out for some Australian press and I like to update this place at least once a week.

I get asked to do quite a bit of extra stuff by FOX and while some of it can be by-the-numbers these ones were fun to do. Unfortunately, doing this kind of thing eats up spare time so personal projects get pushed back quite a bit. Boy's gotta eat. And I can never say no.

Starting up thumbnails/sketches for another contribution to 2000AD lovefest ZARJAZ. Just handling the art this time. Working from a great little script by the impressively named Santiago Mayaud-Maisonneuve.

This is my favorite part of the process, hands down. All the fun of figuring out the storytelling, compositions, angles and designs before I have to sit down and ruin all my good work by actually drawing them.
