First Torchwood page.

My Torchwood strip will be in newsagents and comic shops this Thursday (19th August) inside the new edition of the Torchwood Magazine (#23). The story is told at two different timeframes during the same night. The inked and wider panels are the 'modern' sections, while the borderless panels; left in pencil with added photoshop greys, are the 'earlier that night' scenes. 

Page one above with pencils, inks ands greys by myself, then below with added colour by Phil Elliot.

The strip will also be reprinted early next year in the US version of the Torchwood comic, so if you don't get a copy on Thursday you'll get another chance then.

Paradise Posing

We're leaving Belize this Sunday.  Been a fantastic three and a half weeks so far and we've still to visit the Actun Tunichil Muknal Mayan caves tomorrow, then a few days relaxing before heading off to the USA. We spent part of last week at the 'Paradise' resort (which amounted to five huts on a tiny island) on Tobacco Caye and I finally got a little bit of sketching in. Above is an unfinished pencil sketch of Aimee sunbathing on the beach (its a photo from my faux moleskin, so forgive the quality and gradient). 

A couple more photos from the island:

If anyone really loves flicking through others holiday snaps, I've a lot of them herehere, and here

Imagining things

The Belfast comics creators made an appearance in last month's issue of ImagineFX. One of the editors asked me to take a few photos and scans at our regular monthly drink 'n' draw/comic creators meetup.

Featured in the photos are Paddy Brown, Andy Luke, Ann Harrison, Andrew Croskery and myself (in the Batman T-shirt that I stole from my brother).

You can see my sketches of the Hulk and Wolverine on the night, as well as Mal Coney's Deadpool and Paddy's Judge Dredd.

I'm going to upload a few more sketches and photos from that night to the Belfast comics blog of and by the various creators. You'll also find links to their individual sites there as well.

But here's a closer look at my Hulk in the meantime:

Thanks to Ciaran Lucas for the article scan.
