Doctor Zaius

Hard to believe only saw the original Planet of the Apes for the first time this past weekend, it instantly became one of my favourite movies of all time. This guy is awesome.

A quick Spiderman picture I snuck in before getting all sorted for 2D this weekend. I also have set up a website for my comic Short Sharp Shocks, since issue 3 will be launching at 2D. Its go check it out!


Really, really quick sketch of Joker. Heath Ledger did an amazing job, but was nowhere near as good as Jack.

I didn't have time to create anything just for the blog this week as I'm preparing my portfolio for the Kapow comic con, so here's a hastily-snapped photo of part of a panel from a Judge Dredd page I finished last night.

Inking Video

As you all know I am working hard on the new comic, so this week instead of an image I'm posting a video of me inking a panel. The camera is a bit out of focus but hopefully I'll do a better one in the near future.

Anyway THE HOLY NUMBERS should be launched in about a week or so, why not join the mailing list in the meantime:
