Some Drawings By The 13 Year Old Me…

My Mum unearthed some long lost drawings I did at school when I was 13 and gave them to me today.

Although they’re not very good at all, I remember getting really pissed off at the teacher for writing score marks on the actual drawing itself! Even the thought of it gets to me now and I’m 31! Ha Ha!

Dot And Tot Of Merryland: A Working Sketch.

This is my working sketch for a painting I’ve been working on for my pal Jared’s short story which he has based on L. Frank Baum’s “Dot And Tot Of Merryland“.
The painting will feature the same colours as used by W.W. Denslow in his original illustrations and I’ll post the results up on here when I’m done.

You can read L’ Frank Baum’s original story as well as see W.W. Denslow’s illustrations by clicking HERE.

Al Cook’s “Necropolis”: Cut Loose (Complete Version).

Good evening.

Originally intended as a 2 parter, my long lost and even longer awaited Necropolis horror comic strip installment “Cut Loose” is now available in its entirety and you can only find it by clicking right HERE.

Here are a few cropped images to temp you…

Sketches For Nobody #1.

I keep a big folder full of drawings at home.
It’s filled with half started and half finished sketches and scribbles of mine.
The kind of scribbles I do in bars or on buses.
The kind of sketches that are nice ideas at the time but will ultimately go nowhere in the end.

Rather than have these sketches go nowhere,
I thought I may aswell put them all up here over time.

Sam Weber’s “Lord Of The Flies”.

I like to stay up late into the night and look at books I can’t afford.
I found a couple of illustrations by chance tonight which are blowing me away.

From a new version of William Golding’s “Lord Of The Flies“,
All are by artist Sam Weber.


Sam Weber said:
“Using contemporary illustration to accompany a much loved classic was an exciting challenge, made more so by the active involvement of the Golding Estate. Lord of The Flies is one of my favourite novels, and in many regards this opportunity was a true dream job.”

I think all of those are stunning.
