Shaolin Cowboy Adventure Magazine

This came out last week and I saw a copy over the weekend, turned out pretty nice. Bonkers story by Andrew Vachss and full of Darrow drawn madness---lots of illustrations in the text and odd faux adds and other enjoyably daft stuff. I'm responsible for the design, overseen by Geof's careful eye, of course.

some old (and new) life drawings

The first three are from a recent class for which I'm the tutor (!!!)
All the rest are from the past.

As Ratfink has been reprinted in the recent Judge Dredd Megazine, I thought I'd post these roughs as  I drew trying to work out how he looks. The bottom lot were an attempt to find how he moves, I find this often gives me as much clue to a character as what he looks like.
And here's John Wagner's initial notes for me:
"I see Ratfink as a cross - a  very sinister cross -between Catweasel and Albert Steptoe. Obviously younger, more lithe and physically dangerous, but the same kind of posture, the same range of expressions as Steptoe - perhaps he even wears a pair of fingerless gloves like Albert.  He's a magpie, a collector, and has filled his underground home with an amazing and absurd collection of scavengings from ambushed travellers - he'd have an assortment of clothes hanging up, stuff like a long blonde wig which he could try on in a pic wherever it fits, kiddies' toys - whatever you think fits.  Lots of purloined weapons too. Hope this helps."

Sketchbook drawings

Over the weekend I actual went out to visit friends which has been a rare event lately. I took an old sketchbook with me that I have neglected for ages. Here's some of the drawings I did.

And some of the delightful Pumpkin dosing on his favourite chair.

Deadpool #1

Just coloured this cover drawn by Geof Darrow a couple of weeks ago, seemed like it was immediately on the web. Here's Geof's linework, my first attempt which I had to change as I'd not got any reference for the new costume and the finished correct version.

Old sample stuff

Some old samples for Frank's We3, which didn't get me that particular job, but did lead to the assignment colouring Seaguy.
