FutureQuake - Retirement Day

Have done the artwork for 5-page strip 'Retirement Day' in latest edition of FutureQuake no.27.

It's written by Daniel Bell (who's no slouch when it comes to the art department also), lettered by FutureQuake supremo Bolt-01 and was a lot of fun to do.

I wanted to keep the pages direct, clean and simple black and white ink art, no greyscale shading or Photoshop twiddlings involved.

It can be bought here, along with previous issues.

Crouch End Cartoon Arts Festival - 2015

Poster design: Sean Azzopardi

I'm attending CECAF for the second time this saturday, 6th June 2015 at the Earl Haig Hall, Crouch End, North London. The inaugural event was last November, now it's been moved to summertime to appear as part of events in the Crouch End Festival, the area I'm currently living in in London.

The event is curated by Sean Azzopardi. He did a great job last year creating an event that was fun, relaxed, had a great sense of community and was accessible to everyday non-comic book civilians. So I'm looking forward to taking part again.

I'll be selling comics, prints, original art pages and will have comic pages on display of current projects that are either in progress or have yet to see print. Come and say hello y'all!

A link to a review of last years event by Antony Ezoyeh for the Down the Tubes British comics site, which has a mention of myself, can be found here.

NOTE 08/06/15: It's all done and dusted, good day out, met some great people from first CECAF and some new faces, so all good. Here's a review of the event from Down the Tubes by roving reporter Antony Esmond (including a gormless photo of me).
