Got hit hard and fast by a stinky cold during the weekend, all usual unpleasantness ensued. Had a sick day yesterday (stayed asleep) Last night however, I though i'd treat myself and my pencil hand to drawing Flash Gordon. Superb fun, a true cure.

Right, i'm off to Leeds for Thought Bubble which looks like it's going to be amazing. Nelson is out at the Blank Slate stand, most of the artists will be there over the weekend, I will be signing at that table 10.30 on sunday. My table is in The Armouries site where i'll be as often as possible but it looks like i'll be wandering off a fair bit to see all the good gear.

Bonfire Night tonight, last year I did a drawing of these guys. Did another in the small hours this morning, much the same probably.

Really REALLY exciting news! Nelson is available to buy NOW.
"Nelson is a 250-page collaboration between 54 of the UK’s most exciting comic creators. It is an unprecedented experiment to create one complete story – a collective graphic novel."
Helmed by Rob Davis and Woodrow Phoenix and published by Blank Slate Books, Nelson was always a dream idea but these guys have gone and made it happen. I was very excited to have been asked to contribute what turned into 4 pages for the book though excitement started to turn to amazement and disbelief as the list of contributors grew and then the work started to be produced.
It is an amazing book and a must buy. I cannot wait to get me a copy. All profits from the book go to Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity.
Available now from the Blank Slate Shop but debuting at the Thought Bubble festival in Leeds (19th-20th Nov) Then Nelson week continues.
One panel of my art.
