Hello people, here is a new blog post about art stuff. Sorry haven't written for a while, little inconveniences have contributed to this neglect such as my actual job sucking giant ass & imminent homelessness, but as all the other pencil-monkeys out there will know, this matters not a jot as long as the art gets done ('finally', i hear editors & writers adding in unison)
I've just finished another episode of the adventures of Jikan , time travelling samurai demon-hunter, as ever penned by the ever-readable Mark 'The Shark' Howard, entitled 'The Demon At The End of Time'. Before i started i had a brief look at the last Jikan episode i drew just to get back in the swing of things , & realised the last page i'd drawn never saw the light of day because Davey C (editor of 'Paragon' anthology - home of Jikan ) altered the end at the end of The Jikan Chronicles Book 2 in order to tie in with the beginning of Book 3. So here it is.
I gave Jikan a more 'hardcore' look in this, more than anything to differentiate the 'Jikans' (this being the 'far future' Jikan, i believe the story gets a bit 'Back To The Future Part 2' later, altho i'm still in the dark myself).
Anyway, just letting u guys know what i've been up to, if you're good i might even give u a little preview of the next strip
Hello people, que pasa? Just letting u know what i've been up to comics-wise .This is a panel from 'Jamie Swift' Episode 3 of Dirk Van Dom's 'Mammoth Jack', in which it's Jamie's turn to come to the rescue of Psychopathic Mutant Donkey sidekick Duncan, all of which you'll be able to read in the next 'Vanguard' comic anthology
And this is our very own El Bigote leaping into action whilst confronted by a band of vicious Muertoads which i'm working on this minute!
Here it is! It's finally available here, the second collection of the time-travelling demon-slaying samurai's adventures & let me tell you, it;s a corker! Now obviously you may think i'm biased as it does contain almost 33(! i know!) pages of artwork by me, that being Dirk Van Dom's Gryphon romp 'Jikan's Bounty' & Mark Howard's flashback origins story 'Shimasu' and also a page from said writer's story 'The Flood' (mentioned in another post). But also in it's almost 90 action-packed pages feature artwork by Davey Candlish (whose lovely cover is shown here), Chris Askham, Dustin Parr to name but a few and stories by Matthew McLaughlin & Chris Cronin aswell as the others mentioned above. You can download the digital version for just £1.50 or treat yourself to a lovely, glossy printed copy by following this link. Enjoy!
