Ghost Mania!

December 8, 2011

It’s been a very busy week for our wee ghosty pal!

He’s almost sold his first 100 copies, he’s been sent all round the world to exotic new lands and he’s even had his own launch night!

He’s also been getting some snazzy reviews! Let’s have a look at what’s been said so far…

‘A wonderfully fun little tale that never outstays its welcome.’ 

This comes from a fantastic review and interview from itsbloggerintime.com

‘It’s a lovely little thing.’

A short and sweet review from the music blog ayetunes.

 ‘Suitable for just about anyone’

A lovely article on the book from The Deadliness of Leisure blog.

‘Who would you most like to hang out with in a bar in the afterlife?’

See how me and Campbell answered this question over at Last year’s girl’s blog! 

Fascinating! Here’s a couple of photos from the super cool launch night, in this photo you can see people enjoying cake and activity sheets!

 

And in this photo you can see me and my writer pal Campbell doing a live reading/drawing!

Incredible! Remember there’s still time to get your copy before Christmas and the quicker you get in there the more chance you’ll have of getting one of these original drawings included!

Get yours now from my etsy shop!

Wahoo!

Jonbot vs. Martha

September 15, 2011

 

As some of you may know I’ve toying with making comics for a very long time, well after a wee chat with my comic expert/writer Colin we decided to make a weekly webcomic!

How exciting! It’s all about a lady called Martha and her husband Jon who died of a heart attack but then got brought back to life as a robot.

That’s right a robot! And they’re also trying to get a divorce, it’s the perfect pitch for a sitcom if you ask me.

Anyways here’s the first one (click it for a larger size), and you get all the others  here!



 Also I’d like to note that my blog is now 2 years old! woo woo! So In the birthday spirit I’ll be doing a little competition and giving away prizes :) stay tuned!

See when I said…

July 14, 2011

… that I’d be doing more Zelda pictures, I meant it!

This is one of the more memorable scenes from Ocarina of Time when you leave the kokiri forest for the first time and have a touching goodbye with your childhood friend Saria. I know it’s not really close to the game art because I’ve left out the faces etc but I thought it helped make it look slighty more symbolic, almost timeless like a blurry memory.

In other news I’ve just been busy plodding along with commissions and doing bits towards a book in between them.

Also here’s a sloth playing a banjo!

I’ve also put a couple of new things in my etsy store if anyone fancies a look!

Take care!

I’m Famous

June 3, 2011

I’m not actually famous, I just got a bit excited there but give me a minute and I’ll tell you why!

So I’m really into Game of Thrones, it’s a fantasy TV series that’s just started up and it’s pure good. In fact it’s so good I even drew a little picture of Ned Stark (one of the main guys) just cos!

So after I drew it I thought I’d send it into their catch up show ‘Thronecast’ Just for a laugh and waddaya know! They put it on the show and as I was watching it I just about wet myself!

If you’d to see it it’s here and my picture comes in about 5:40 on episode 7.

That’s all!

A Wave of Productivity

May 24, 2011

It’s funny how I seem to go through little patches of productivity. Days go by without having drawn anything with me knowing all too well that I’ve got shit tons of stuff to do but as soon as I get down to it I feel like I could lock myself indoors for weeks on end untill all my projects are complete.

Anyways that’s how I felt today, I got a lot done towards the book I’m illustrating, made a wee T-shirt design and finished a painting.

Let me share. This is a design I made because I love space and all things spacey so I drew this up with the intention of getting it printed onto bags and t-shirts so other fellow space fans can be proud of their space love.

I also did a lot of work for the book I’ve been yammering on about forever but I’ll explain all that stuff in a separate post once it’s done. I also finished a painting today, although it’s hard for me to tell when I’ve finished a painting I always feel that it’s missing something so I usually leave it for a weeks and then come back to it with a fresh head.

This will (If i still like it) be one of the smaller pieces I’ll be exhibiting at the end of the year along with tons more robot paintings.

As always any feedback is more than welcome, and please be sure to check out my shop as I’m always putting up new stuff!

take care!

Neil Draws More Bad Comics

May 15, 2011

Hi pals! How’ve you been?

As I said in my last post I’ve been trying to do more comics, mainly to keep myself drawing but also as a diary exercise (I think diaries and sketchbooks and super important btw).

So I guess that’s what most of them are, like diary entries. Most of the time nothing exciting happens but you never know! I’m hoping to build up a collection of them in the future and maybe make a wee book although I’m not really sure if people would read it.

Anyways here’s a couple!

As always I’d like to thank you for visiting my blog and if you get a minute please have look at my etsy shop where I’ve got some stuff for sale :)

take care!

Tiny comics

May 2, 2011

It’s been a while since I tried something in the comic form, and I’m a bit disappointed in myself about it because I read and think about comics pretty much all day. So I popped one out today,I basically just took some ramblings from my sketchbook and re-made it into pictures with panels but I’m quite pleased with it.

click for biggerness



It’s something I’d quite like to take a bit further though, like maybe make a little book/zine about my other wacky adventures. Someone I really admire in the indie comic scene is Jeffrey Brown. I’ve always admired his really simple style and the brutally honest story telling found in his autobiographical stuff.  Here’s a wee snippet of his stuff!

 Anyways please check out his stuff, I’m off to draw more comics :)

 Take care!
