INCOGNITO #4 partial colours

I think the background's finished. Just need to complete the figures.

INCOGNITO #4 cover pencils

Well that took too long! Off to a party now, I need a drink.

Here's a sample I did for a pitch for a project with Russell Brand. I'm no longer involved but the project might still go ahead.
I might ebay the original painting after Christmas.

Steranko isn't really writing the intro. Wish he was, I'd love to know what he thought of it. I did give him a copy of Lawless a few months ago but never heard from him about it. I met him at the New York Comic Con back in April and I was very nervous. He was great, it was a big thrill to be able to tell him how much of a fan I am and to show him my stuff.

BAD NIGHT partial colours

Having trouble translating the Photoshop rough into watercolours...

BAD NIGHT cover rough

Heros the Spartan

Also in the Eagle comics I bought were some Heros the Spartan strips. It used to be drawn by Frank Bellamy but the later ones I have are by Luis Bermejo. Still good stuff though...

Fraser of Africa

A few months ago I posted some Flash Gordon Sunday pages. When I bought the magazines they came from I also picked up some old copies of Eagle. One of them had this great Frank Bellamy page...

I'm back

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. I've been finishing up an issue of Incognito due to press very soon so just haven't had time. Haven't drawn anything that doesn't give away too much story anyway.

Found out the other day that my brother Tony reads my blog so here's a photo of him from when he was about three to embarrass him...

Happy Birthday Fred, 18 today.

I can't possibly have a son that old! What happened to the last twenty years?

INCOGNITO #3 cover pencils

Life painting

Yesterday's painting is still too wet to scan so here's a poor photo of it instead...
12 X 12 inches, oil on board. Took about 40 minutes. Just long enough to not over work it.

Lost Edges, Shifting Light

My wife Janette's new exhibition opens this weekend...

A friend I go life drawing with, Thomas Beecham, has put some of his paintings and drawings up on Flickr, so I thought I'd link to them from here...

Life Drawing

Drawing class today. This was the only decent drawing I did but I also did quite a nice oil painting that I'll post once it's dry enough to scan.

Sorry about the lack of posting this week. I've been working on Incognito and there's not much I can show without giving too much story away. Here's a peek at a panel to whet your appetite...

I've put a bunch of the hardcovers up on Amazon. Each comes with a bookplate with a unique hand-drawn sketch and signature from both myself and Duncan Fegredo.

INCOGNITO partial inks

Life Drawing

Didn't draw anything worth showing yesterday, so here's another life drawing I did last Monday...

Thought Bubble

I'll be at the Thought Bubble Comic Festival in Leeds tomorrow. Other guests include Mark Millar, Alex Maleev, Jock and Andy Diggle.

Val Staples has done some lovely colours on my pages for Hellblazer #250 out next month...

More Penny

After finishing up some Criminal pages earlier in the week, I've been working on a couple of projects outside of comics that I'm not allowed to show anything from yet.
So here's the next episode of Penny Farthing I drew in 1981...
