I think I'm going to mainly post sketchbook drawings and excerpts from the new 'Sky in Stereo' over on my Tumblr account. If your on Tumblr, please follow me there. cheers!
here's a clumsy link:

(I'm still going to read entries here as I have a lot of dear, real life friends on LJ).

Ladies and gentlemen, St Louis royalty, Bagheera!


One Day My Corporate Sponsor Prince Will Come. [Mar. 27th, 2014|08:26 pm]
And his name is Johnnie Boden.

(Let me add, she has Mini-Boden courtesy of Ebay. I'm not made of money and they grow so fast. Thank you.)

Winter random [Mar. 27th, 2014|08:23 pm]
The back room where we keep our scanner has been frigid due to the crazy American Polar Vortex or whatever, but spring is finally bursting forth and I'm dragging myself out of blogging inertia. All I have to share right now is diary pages. I always feel shy about sharing them as, well, they're not my best work but a hastily scrawled record of "wot did". But then I remember that I love reading other people's journals, so maybe don't be such a wuss, Mardou.
Nosy Parkers Unite!
(Ted informed me that Americans don't know what 'Nosy Parker' means but I'm going to put it out there anyway for mystique purposes.
Well, as lazy as I've been saving jpegs to file, I've not been lazy working on comics. Sky in Stereo #3 is pencilled and a third of it's inked. I'm busily shaping and finessing the final chapters and I have a clear idea of what Sky in stereo the novel is gonna be. Well it's exciting to ME. What with my self imposed deadline of my 40th birthday. Yeah, that caught you're attention, eh? Well. It gives me another 15 months to finish it. I'm gonna give it my best shot! Chapter 3 however has lots of street scenes replete with dodgy blokes, litterbugs and coppers. For release this Fall /Autumn, I reckon.
So with that in mind, here's an unrelated journal page....


Woah! [Dec. 31st, 2013|01:35 pm]
This fan art is by Martin Eden of Spandex fame (published by Titan, go check it out. Martin is so talented and funny). Thanks Martin! I love it!

Why are we here? [Dec. 23rd, 2013|02:06 pm]
I guess I'm keeping my blog on LiveJournal despite the Russian spambots, the frequent site crashes and that everyone left the party for Friendster or something. Why? Well, part laziness, part fascination. There's something vaguely 'End of Days' about this place. Sooner or later, it's probably all going to crash and burn and the sketches I've posted for a decade will all be gloriously hacked away along with the squabbling parents, celebrity photo sharers, fan fiction and NaNoWrimers and the sex secrets of those here for the privacy settings- It'll all be lost and I won't get my annual fee back. Probably. "there goes my blog" I'll say with an accepting shrug.
Anyway, so the point is, you can now LIKE me on Facebook.
Merry Christmas! Here's a free printable wine label for last minute gifts for moms like me.


A gig I went to, a long time ago. [Dec. 16th, 2013|01:47 pm]

The Priscillas! February, 2005, Bristol, England...... They were very good, unlike my (now defunct) brushpen technique.


Are you having a nice summer? [Aug. 13th, 2013|09:00 pm]
We are.

This year's Barbara Pym. [Aug. 13th, 2013|08:58 pm]
It's Jean Rhys!
