My variant cover for Black Scorpion featuring the Legion Britannia.

I had to ban myself from all social media for the last week while hunkering down to finish the interiors for the Black Scorpion, which, printer-willing, will be ready for the MCM Expo. I'll be a lot more social next month though as May and June are con heavy and I'll be schmoozing (and boozing?) 4 weekends in a row.

Here's the hefty schedule:

12-13 May Bristol Comic Expo

  • 11:45 on the Sunday I'll be talking on a panel about Transmedia with Scott Grandison, Barry Nugent and Nic Wilkinson, discussing the differing experiences of working across various media.
  • Also, check out the launch of previous collaborator Andrew Croskery's first GN, Kronos City (panel at 11:45 on Saturday) and the Launch of Cy Dethan and Valia Kapadai's White Knuckle at the Markosia Showcase 1:45 on Saturday.
  • I'll be sharing a table with the uber-talented Dave Strokes at Artist's Ally during the weekend. Come by for sketches, prints, books or just a look at some upcoming stuff.
25-27th May London MCM Expo
  • We'll be attending the Eagle Awards on Friday night (did I mention Jennifer Wilde is nominated), then hanging around and sharing a table with Atomic Diner during the show.
  • The weekend also debuts the Black Scorpion one-shot and Jennifer Wilde #2. You should pop over for a look at the really awesome books Rob is publishing.
  • I'm a guest at the festival in Derry again this year and Friday and Saturday night host the regular panels in Sandino's Bar. I'll be hanging around there, and may even make a guest appearance on a panel.
  • Saturday is the festival open day and we'll be in the Crescent Arts Centre sketching, selling books and all the usual shenanigans.
I'm going to have to fit in some drawing during May at some point too.

Black Ops Extreme!

Strip Magazine have announced I'm filling in for PJ Holden on 2 episodes of Black Op Extreme. Created by PJ and writer/editor John Freeman, my first episode also marks Rich Clements coming on as regular writer for the series. I've just finished inking my first 6 page ep so here's a little pre-colour preview of one of my panels.
