A little sketch of one of the most legendary guitarists and a real old favorite of mine, Kirk Hammett from Metallica. I've loved this band since seeing them play live at Donington in 1985. I played in a Metallica Tribute band for 10 years so they feel part of the family really.
This is a Saurus Squad character concept piece of a cool crime fighting chick with a big, big gun (what could be better than that).
I was told at the London Film & Comic Con that it is like a character from the Star Wars comics but I'm really not familiar with those comics (total coincidence if thats true)!
A live Saurus Squd Drawing, to promote next years comicbook release from the MCM Expo in London on 31st October. A taste of things to come.
Dinosaurs and Half Naked Girls, what could be better than that?
With a little tarting up, here is the finished panel. Only the word balloons to add and they're written by my writing collaborator.
Come down and see us on the Time Bomb Comics Stand at the London Excel Centre for the MCM Expo on Sunday 30th.
I'll be doing some drawing to help promote the book.
Did I ever show you "Dream Of Clownifornication" - This was an Illustrapedia challenge a few months back.

London Film & Comic Con 2010 - Live Drawing
I found myself an empty table and got on with drawing all day, with the 30th Empire Strikes Back anniversary this year, I thought a Starwars theme would be cool. I met some extremely nice and enthusiastic people, sold some live drawings, made some new contacts and plugged the new book I'm doing for Timebomb Comics. All in all a successful day!
June's Illustrapedia challenge - Dragon. The name's taken from my favorite film. Drawn with Pentel Brush Pen then scanned in. The background is a radial Gradient yellow to orangy red, blurred dots on top and black dots that have been zoomed then faded with layer fading. The body colour is 3 different greens painted then mixed in using the smudge tool (not used this tool much).
Original sketch for the face of my 'Illustrapedia' submission.
I spoke to this man as he kindly helped me by giving me a
baby-wipe for my daughters badly scraped knee when she fell
at the edge of the swimming pool. He turned out to be on holiday
himself with his family from Iraq. I didn't tell him he was an artists
While I was away I tried a bit of watercolour, here is my first try for a while.
I had prepared enlarged pencil scans and photocopied them onto
Daler Rowney Aquarelle 250gsm. These I then dry mounted onto heavy board
ready to paint, no paper stretching or buckle as I worked either, good stuff.
