Hellooooo again!

So for those that don't know, waaaay back through the mists of time, I was the 2008 artist (penciller/inker) for DC Comics/ LEGO BIONICLE comic series, based on the popular toy line. You can read all my earlier bloggy posts at the handy link here.

I'm selling a random batch of original art pages I still have. All pages were drawn on 11.5x16.5 inch DC art boards. As with other art sales I have such as:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, heroes in a half shell, TURTLE POWER!!!

God, I LOVE the new cartoon from Nicklodeon: Great funny script, gorgeous animation, impressive design, lovely voice acting, and my favourite of all, fantastic intro with updated theme tune!

My favourite Liverpool comic store, Worlds Apart, are actually lucky enough to be one of the first in the country to have the new toy line,and so are having a TMNT Day starting at 7.30am this Saturday, with all manner of cool Turtle stuff happening!!! (See the poster below)

So I thought I'd help them out with a turtle sketch (above) to add to their art display!

Maybe see you there. I'm gonna get me a Donatello....


Yup, you heard me: AWESOME!!!

Though you know what, it always is. Year after year the lovely Lisa Wood, Clark Burscough, Nabil Homsi, and the rest of the lovely Team TB put on a show that EVERYONE wants to go to. It really is one of the best comic cons out there, and still growing!

All the drawings you see here were pre ordered commissions. Think the Ghost Rider may have been my favourite!

Always great to see old friends at these events, just a shame that there's so many of us, we never seem to have enough quality time on a one to one basis. I won't try mentioning names, as I'll miss someone out and feel bad, but you all know who you amazing people are!

This time I only opted to do a signing slot with my fellow 2000AD droids, but that kept me plenty busy enough! Did a few sketches too, though I feel bad that my very first signing on Saturday, I forgot to offer the young lad and his mother a sketch (I signed 2 copies of 2000AD for you, and showed you a preview of Aquila), so if that was you please drop me a comment or email, and I'll mail you a sketch! (Probably best include proof it was you!)
The 2000AD panel (Al Ewing, Simon Davis, Simon Fraser, Rob Williams, Robbie Morrison, Lee Carter, Michael Molcher and myself) expertly hosted by Iz McCauliffe and Stacey Whittle was informative, completely inappropriate, and FUN! And they provided cakes, so from now on I demand that they host every panel from now on! Though I STILL didn't get a chance to tell my favourite story due to the panel running out of time!!!

Managed to get my copy of the fabulous Thought Bubble Anthology from Image Comics, in which I drew Ivan Brandon's story "I'M THROUGH!". The comic is a beautiful package, and I'm made up to hear it's been getting great reviews!

I managed to pick up a few books from some talented buddies, that I'll pimp very soon in a future post.

A brief shout out to the Comics Anonymous gang who I managed to squeeze in a charity "Sketch off" session, being called upon to draw the Joker as a cheerleader(?), and a quick hi to the MOMBCAST gang, with apologies again to Nick (Nick!Nick!) (in joke sorry).

Have to say, the big party in the gorgeous Corn Exchange building was epic! What a venue for a bash! And despite months of preparation, Geek Syndicate's Barry Nugent still kicked my bum in our dance year Nuge, next year, you will bow to me....

Well it's that time again for one of the BEST comic conventions around, THOUGHT BUBBLE!!!! (17th-18th Nov)

Sorry to have missed it last year due to some good mates getting married, but this time the new wife and I shall be there for some fun!

I won't have a booth this time unfortunately, BUT I do have a signing slot for both days at the 2000AD signing station at 1.50-3.20pm, with fellow 2000AD artist Simon Davis!

So we'll be signing books, and I'll see if I can fit some quick head sketches in. I also plan on eating lots of biscuits to ensure that there's crumbs everywhere to annoy Frazer Irving and Robbie Morrison sitting there after us....heh, heh, heh...

Here's the floor map of the New Dock Hall area. You can find us at tables 177-180, 2000AD signing booth "B" I believe.

I also drew a one page story for the new Thought Bubble Anthology of which all the info can be found here.

Ivan Brandon wrote a lovely little story for me that I just managed to squeeze in before my wedding, and my buddy Simon Bowland lettered it. It's on sale from 14th November in all good comic shops as well as at the convention, with all profits going to the charity Barnardo's.

COMPLETELY different style from what you're used to with me, but I think it suits the tone of the story. Here's a little preview...

FINALLY....on Saturday I'll be on the 2000AD roundtable panel discussion hosted by the lovely Megacast girls Iz and Stace!! Here's the official blurby thing:

Bury Theatre, Royal Armouries, 12.40pm – 1.30pm, free entry with Saturday/Weekend convention pass, all ages, but please note: Thought Bubble does not control panel content
Rob Williams, Simon Fraser, Simon Davis, Leigh Gallagher, Robbie Morrison – the galaxy’s greatest comic turns 35 this year & to celebrate we’ve got some of the mighty Tharg’s best art & script droids together. Guaranteed to be zarjaz!

Should be a great laugh! See you there!


Yup, the winner of the "Get drawn into a future episode of 2000AD's Defoe" charity raffle was................................
............STEPHEN LONGDON!!!

Congrats again Steve! What's great is that he's been a longtime 2000AD fan since 1978! I would've been only one years old then! Jeeeez......

So sometime next year he'll be drawn as either a zombie or a victim in Defoe, depending where Pat's script goes and where I can fit his likeness in best.

Thanks to all those who donated towards the 02 THINK BIG charity, and sorry to those who didn't win.
