Pity. One day I'll get this into shape as the finished full-colour painting that it was intended to be.

The site owners started charging for the use of the site and nobody wanted to pay for it, so that was that.
I also began designing the Lurkin' Stiffs as animated shorts. Remind me to show you the character design/story boards one of these days.

Peake is a favourite artist of mine. He seems to be having a new burst of popularity these days (About time!) I think that for a long time the public had difficulty working out what he was, because he was a writer as much as an artist. The public likes to pigeon hole artists, rather than find out who they are.
This posting is dedicated to the late Jeff Jones. A great Artist. Already missed.

It wasn't often that I got to do anything in the Horror Comic style, so this was a bonus compared to some of the art jobs I had back then. Brush and Ink with a colour overlay added inhouse.

In this Post South Park, Post Mel Gibson world it's a bit hard to believe all of the shit and nonsense that ensued. Especially, as these days the strip is reprinted and posted on the internet so often with no one so much as batting an eyelid! Well, apart from a few complaints...
I'll tell you about those later!

At the time a local newspaper ran a piece on me, and published this (in black and white). I don't think they realised that the alien artist isn't wearing pants! After it was published a journalist phoned me and said not many people had even noticed it, except for someone who wrote in to say I could draw "nice teeth".

When Oink! was first being published it had some complaints from the Mary Whitehouse brigade because they thought it was too rude for its intended audience (Not just Charlie, all of it). But it sold pretty well, so the editors ignored the criticism and the newsagents just put it on a slightly higher shelf in their shops.

Enjoy 'em both!

A while ago, I decided that every night for fifty nights I would write and sketch at least one page of comics in my trusty Moleskine. I had no idea what would happen when I opened the book & nothing was planned beforehand. It was knackering, but certainly hones your brain cells. I think. Recommended for adults and crazy cartoonists only! And then there's the long slog of drafting this all up in ink on illustration board. What the hell was I thinking?

Hunt Emerson. This is my contribution and the original was bought by Hunt after a book signing in Birmingham.
