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.

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!

My Dream Last Night

December 11, 2010

Last night I had a dream, a very vivid dream including a space rocket, myself and the moon. So in an effort not to forget it, I drew out what I could remember after I woke up, here have a look!

I must admit, I’m pretty proud of my subconscious for this one!

I like Penguins

October 29, 2010

It’s True, I like penguins, almost as much as tortoises.

It’s mainly because they’re super cute but at the same time I have the utmost respect for the little dudes, especially at this time of year when they start migrating in huge numbers to travel hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles for mating season, It’s a great and harsh trip and sometimes not all of them make it…

…so I wanted to do a little picture for them.

Good luck out there penguins!

Sketchbook Entry 24/9/10

September 24, 2010

I was thinking about this on the bus earlier, I think the hardest task for an artist of any type is to get out what’s exactly in their head. It’s something I definitely aspire to, to be able to put onto paper the exact imagine I’m imagining is my ultimate goal and it’s why I try to keep learning and try different approaches and mediums whenever I can.

Having that said, I did this with my new tablet earlier.

take care

Sketchbook Entry 06.08.10

August 9, 2010

It may sound a bit introverted or slightly selfish but I’ve always preferred writing things down than talking about them. See, as much as I appreciate a friend’s ear whenever I try to get my problems across they always come out unstructured, words get jumbled and I usually just end up changing the subject.

I think this is one the main reasons I started drawing and keeping sketchbooks, It lets me get things out whilst taking time over my words and drawing where they fail, giving me a voice I previously never thought I had.

Night night Herman!

November 17, 2009

Hello space fans!

Today was quite a sad day, as many of you know I have a wonderful pet tortoise called Herman, he’s the bestest pet ever!

And as it’s now winter(where does the time go?) he has dozed off into hibernation and wont be getting up till spring time.
Here he is in his little box.

I find it quite fascinating that some animals can sleep for months at a time with no food or water, by the time Herman wakes up he wont have eaten for 6 months!

He’ll be missed dearly :(
