Hey guys,

You'd better be watching BBC2's "I'M IN A ROCK 'N' ROLL BAND!"-- a 6 part series starting this Saturday night at 21.40!!!

I was brought in by post production company SumCreative to join artists Mike Collins and Steve Beaumont on illustrating a pile of semi animated cutaway scenes of anecdotes told by top rock legends like Iggy Pop, Sting and Gene Simmons!!!

By the time I'd been brought in to help on this job, an artistic style had already been established, so don't expect to see any "Defoe" style renderings--this will look more like my "Bionicle" style

What you'll be able to see of my work in particular:
--The shadowy band members in the main title sequence (pay close attention to the drummer, who looks particulary attractive *ahem*)...

--I've been inking a large number of Steve Beaumont's pencils.

--I'm pencilling/inking some full scenes later on in the series, one of which involves the legendary KISS!!!

All these images have been coloured, animated and beautifully jazzed up with computery wizardry by the top people at SumCreative who have produced opening title/credit sequences for shows that I can guarantee that you've seen and been impressed by...

Once I've got the go ahead, I'll post up some pics to go with this.

But seriously, watch this show! It looks like it's going to be fantastic!

(P.S. Saturdays are officially my favourite day of the week---Total Wipeout, Doctor Who, and now this!!!)

You lot had better appreciate this post as it took bloody AGES top scan in!

Waaaaaaay back in 2003-2004 I was given the huge break by Shelly bond of Vertigo to pencil the series, "The Witching", written by Jon Vankin (with some cracking dialogue!) , with inks first by Ron Randall, then later by Dan Green, and covers by Tara McPherson

The series came to an end after 10 issues and I didn't see any trade collections released until last year when DC sent me Spanish and Italian versions. I very much doubt there'll ever be an English version!

This was a long time before I developed a style of my own, but I think the storytelling still stands up. Enjoy!
