Well, here we are folks, only a few days until I drag the ole' Blink wagon to the EXETER COMIC EXPO
, a little one-day show as part of the Animated Exeter Animation festival. As usual, we're producing a new MOON! mini sketchbook just for the show, with a limited edition run of just 25, only available on the day, and FREE with every Â£10 spent at the Blink stand. We'll also have all the Malcolm Magic back issues and trades and stuff, as well as portfolios of my original boards, including your first chance to have an exclusive sneak peek at pages form our story for the forth-coming Viper anthology.
This cover shows a design I did for Serenity, one of the leading ladies in the book. The beauty of having "making movies" as a backdrop for the adventure, is that many of thecharacterss got through numerous costume changes each issue, which keeps my head bubbling with invention.
The 'Phant in her bag is partly based on a little stuffed fellow called Elly, and partly homage to Stripy from the Dan Dare Man From Nowhere trilogy of stories. Expect more nods to Dare as the series continues, because, well, it's the greatest comic of all time. Fact.
See you at the show, guys!
