Lost in Tunnels

I finished doing a front cover today for my ThoughtBubble comic. The comic will be a collection of my best work so far, so a kind of one person anthology. It will contain both Tracks and both Gretchin sketches plus some new material. The idea is that rather then having lots of little bits on sale at the comic con i can have just one bumper comic showcasing my work. Since most of my comics have sold around the NorthEast i dont see a problem with re-using some old stuff to sell in Leeds. I've given it the title 'Lost in Tunnels' I started drawing it at PaperJam the other night and finished on my break at work!

I'll be attending this years Thoughtbubble comic con in Leeds. I'll be sharing a table with the very talented Martin Edan creator of the comic 'Spandex'. You can view all exhibitors on the thoughtbubble site it's really exciting as i have two pictures on the exhibitors page. As well as i Simon and Sundial picture linking to this blog i also created the logo for Cottage Industry Comics.
 This will be the first year exhibiting my own material as last year i worked the 'Paperjam comics collective' table which exhibited all the artists from our group in the NorthEast.
 I've also been working today on a pitch book for Simon and the Sundial to hopefully send to possible publishers. Of coarse the real work will be between now and November when Thoughtbubble will be.

The Point

So whats been happening in May. Well i made a start on my sketchbook for The Arthouse Sketchbook Project. The cover i kept simple with just the two main characters of the story, the boy Oblio and his dog Arrow. Again i wanted to draw in a simple way to give it a childrens book theme. My initial inspiration was a character that resembled Link (legend of Zelda) Ico and the Moomins and Noggin the Nog. I don't normally colour and the inside will be wholly black and white but i wanted to colour the cover, sticking to the animated version of the point for the colour of Arrow.
 I also joined and i was asked to take part in a vending machine art project based in London. I'm slowy working away at Bostin Heroes (two pages complete!) and i've done some more drawing for Simon and the Sundial.
 I hope i've not taken on too much and that i can meet all deadlines! If others out there have huge workloads share your burden and feel free to unload, I'm right there with you!
