HE'S BACK!!!

Hellooooooo.....

Well, I'm back from my California road trip refreshed, de-stressed, with absolutely no sun tan whatsover! Me and Niki did so much, that it honestly feels like we've been away for 2 months.

But the alluring scent of my drawing board (I dip it in honey) proved too much, and I've been looking forward to getting back to work (how many people can say that?), and of course I missed all you lovely people.

My only gripe is that I seem to have developed insomnia since getting back! I'm typing this at 3am when I should be in bed dreaming of Gillian Anderson!

Soooo, whilst I was away the LEGO BIONICLE poster I did before I left was shown at a special event with photos posted on the web, meaning that I'm now allowed to post my pencil and ink versions, as shown above! This particular character is a HUGE deal for BIONICLE fans, as they've been waiting literally YEARS to see what he looks like! I hope I didn't let them down.

My final issue for this series is released next month, so more posts from that soon. After that, there should be alot of DEFOE BOOK 3 previews as that's what I'll be concentrating on for the next 7 months or so. I've just had my cover idea approved, so I'll ask Tharg (my 2000AD editor) if I'm allowed to show it early...

Thanks again to everyone who left messages while I was away. If you look at your original comments you should see that I've replied to them.

Catch you soon,

No offense.

Well DJ, considering I'm not the one who designed Mata Nui (it was LEGO), no offence taken!

I love this thing the more I look at it :) Some artists look great on first glance, but on further inspection, look worse *cough*stuart sayger*cough*. You are one of the rare ones who looks great at first glance, but even better on further inspection. BTW, another fan decided to make a 3D thing of his head HERE: http://www.bzpower.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=301492

Just saw that CG head--very impressive! I wouldn't even know where to begin doing something like that. You Bionicle fans are a talented bunch...
