I launched a new site to host two short stories together because previously it wasn't clear how to navigate the old webcomic site. I have also drawn extra character profiles and put extras dotted about the site.
I had fun at the Orbital Comics Self-portrait Show Private View last weekend. I forgot to take photos but Sarah McIntyre did a great blog post full of photos if you're interested. The portraits will be up until 15th October 2011.

This is a small preview panel from my Ink + Paper anthology/magazine submission. I really wanted to try something new and different to the colouring I have done before. I think it worked really well with the mood of the comic. The full story will be printed and published some time in the autumn.
I've also submitted something for the Orbital Comics Self-Portrait Show in London from 19th September till 15th October. Check the website link for the list of comics creators involved.
I really enjoy drawing when I watch live music. I started doing it for practice because of my Giant Rhinos In Space graphic novel/comic project is all about a band. I think it really helps with getting the cartoon characters into more natural poses. These sketches are of Jenny Lockyer, Helen Arney and The Unthanks from their performances at Greenbelt Festival. I have a gallery of gig sketches over on Flickr.
