Zombies - before & after

It's always nice to get the final copy of a book sent through!
 It suddenly inspired me to look at the stages this cover went through from my (rather maximalist) original rough (top) to my final artwork (less zombies, less superheroes) to the final book where the (decidedly more minimalist) zombies seem to have acquired a rather fetching shade of green!


I just received my copy of the new Jeremy Strong Cartoon Kid book - Cartoon Kid Zombies!
It's got falling trousers, dancing hippos, talking cakes, police elephants (naturally!) toilet paper mummies & lots of other zombie based shenanigans that Casper & his superhero friends encounter - what more do you need?

It's been a lot of hard work & a lot of fun working on these books & this looks like this will be the last in the series which is a shame (especially as I can draw some of the characters in my sleep by now!) & I've grown quite fond of them.
WHAM-BAM-JELLY-AND-JAM! Anybody can be a superhero! (as long as you stick your pants on the outside, I ALWAYS do!)

You can buy a copy from here but I'd suggest getting one from your local PROPER bookshop - who knows what else you might find?

Bear with memento mori toaster & bird.

I like bears, & toast & strange birds. That's all - happy Saturday!

Unwanted gifts (one that got away)

I think I'd sneakily like one of these to be truthful (although the 'Breville home stigmata toaster'™ might be a little beyond the pale...)

Heels of Glory

When a dear friend like Tricity Vogue asks you to draw a poster for a 'Drag Action Musical' you can't really say no!
Been drawing this through a fug of dissipating New Year 'ill' but has definitely cheered me up.
The show's on for ONE NIGHT here's a link

Inside Housing Magazine

I drew some angry shouting folk (& dog) for Inside Housing Magazine last month, in the 'Advent of Unwanted Gifts' frenzy pre Xmas I didn't get round to posting it. I've posted it now. Happy New Year everybody*!

*Yes, you too!
