Bit of a lazy post but i've done more than one a day this month. He's a pencil drawing stuck to the other side on the pint glass's condensation.
Or is he wandering in the lime and soda. Would have been beer but I was at work.
I hadn't read a Daredevil comic for a very long time but got one 'added' to my latest comic pick up (a fairly complicated and unusual system). I'd forgotten how much I loved the character, And though I hadn't a clue what was going on I might have to get the next one.

Saturday I'm going to Thought Bubble so I can see copies of NBC#2 being frantically sold on the Smallzone Comic stand where it's available. I'll be lurking unattached to any where trying to encourage people to buy one. Leonie O'Moore, fellow NBC'er has a table there and further fellow NBC'er Tony Hitchman may also be present.
The Birdsong/ Songbird anthology (which has my 'palindromatic story' will not be there as hoped but will be along at later date, and worth the wait judging by what's coming along. And some of it's organisers and contributers will be about too.
Hopefully, i'll have a bunch of small Ragnar sketches with me to sell to pay for the petrol home.

Just listened to this weeks Sunnyside podcast which was a great as ever, even a little more so as 'I' got mentioned (favourably) which made my morning. So I had a brief go at Yo Yo and kid Yo Yo's YoFO which was a bit hurried but everything else got pushed out of the way for a bit.
This is my first go at the father and son crime-fighting duo from a while ago, invented by the 10 year old PJ Holden, and here is the first go at The YoFO
Go and subscribe to the podcast if you haven't already for all the comic opinion you need (apart from this of course). 2 weeks now without Kay's catalogue abuse!
A bit more.
It's struck me that this is unlike most other pictures of mine as it's not getting done in one sitting. Having scanned the pencil I mess with the 'curves' in Pshop, sidestepping any inking! Then try out putting in colour. This time starting with texture from two of my favourite sources, a page of red ink and crayon scanned and a photo of some pals in a Belgian bar.
And see where it takes me.
The third of three anthologies I've contributed this year but the first to go out. Available now at Bad Press and should be at the Smallzone stand at Thought Bubble in a few weeks. 15 strips by 19 artists in both English and Polish (I love seeing my strip in Polish) all wrangled together by Karol Wisniewski. Link to all artist links here. But i'd recommend a peep here, here and here.
Great to do, the story itself (a robbery/haunted house adventure) had been lurking around for years. Anyone that gets one or has read it, I'd love to know what you think.

Seemingly out of now where I ended up with a Scrooge sketch in the moley today. Perhaps, with the worry of how that impeding Jim Carrey film might upset the memory what is a true Muppet classic.
This is a coloured camera photo of the sketch. Something i'd not thought of before.
