Dr. Cave Commission

Large (approx 2.5 x 3.5 foot) Dr. Cave commission for fellow comic artist, the talented Mr. Julian Hanshaw. I think he's going to have it in his studio, keeping an eye on him. 

I thought I'd have a go with using charcoal on this one. Takes me back to my brief career as an art teacher, demonstrating charcoal techniques to OAP's in an art shop in the northern seaside town of Cleethorpes. Good times.

AAARG! Issue 9

I've got a comic in the new issue of French anthology AAARG!
It's not in shops in the UK, but you can order it from their website:  AAARG! SHOP
It's all in French, but the artwork is generally pretty amazing and it's a huge, thick, super-high quality magazine that looks more like a book.

Here's a couple of pages from my comic:

Jolly Lad

Got my hardback copy of John Doran's Jolly Lad the other day and it's a beauty, a very handsome book. One of those rare times I'm totally happy with how my work comes out in print. I did 7 illustrations for the inside, and Simon Fowler did the stunning hyper-detailed cover. 

Want to buy it? I totally think you should. Allow me to provide you with a link to the publishers:

Jolly Lad Book Illustrations

I made 7 illustrations for the forthcoming book 'Jolly Lad' by John Doran, music journalist and editor of acclaimed music website The Quietus. 

Jolly Lad is 'a memoir about recovery from alcoholism, habitual drug use and mental illness. It is also about the healing power of music, how memory defines us, the redemption offered by fatherhood and what it means to be working class'. Maybe it's just me, but I also found it to be pretty hilarious.

It's out in June, available as a paperback or Ltd Edition hardback, it's published by Strange Attractor and it features a beautiful cover by Simon Fowler. There's also a CD which comes with the hardback, feat. music from Nicky Wire (Manic Street Preachers), British Sea Power, Teeth Of The Sea, Grumbling Fur and others.

Sabbath Ov Thee Broken

I drew part of this cartoonist's art jam poster, along with top underground comic artists Junko Mizuno, Savage Pencil, Shaky Kane and many more, put together by Jason Atomic at Satanic Mojo comics.

Here's my bit on it's own, below. Hmmm..dunno know why they cropped out the Starship Enterprise - that's my favourite bit :(

You can buy a rather lovely print of the poster here: Sabbath Ov Thee Broken by SATANICMOJO on Etsy though I'd advise you to be quick. It's a Limited Edition of 70 and most of 'em have gone.
