I'm back up in Manchester on the 29th and 30th July for this years Manchester Comi-con.
This year I'm running a fun competition - if you ask me to draw something that I have never drawn before, in addition to your original drawing, you will get a free limited edition print!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Thanks to all those who saw me at the Belfast MCM Expo at the weekend. Incredibly busy, with a couple of drawing firsts!
My new ongoing Image Comics book, Mythic, with writer Phil Hester is in shops today, priced just $1.99, which I guess would be around £1.50 - a steal!
I did a set of 8 covers for IDW Publishing's reprints of Rogue Trooper- here's my cover to issue 3 ( with colours by Andrew Elder ) which is out at the moment

Phew, that's a lot to cram in! Hope to catch up with you at least one of them!
Working on a 4 part Judge Dredd story for the Galaxy's Greatest Comic (c) 2000ad. I'm very happy as it's written by the man who co created Dredd, Mr John Wagner. I've known John for 20 years and never worked with him, so I'm chuffed to bits to finally get the chance!
Not sure when this one is due out but I'll keep you informed.
I'll be attending the Paris Manga in , strangely enough, Paris this February 8- 9th- I'll be signing, sketching and chatting all day both days. My prices are £30 headshot and £70 full figure, both on A4 paper.
Looking forward to this show and will have my new A3 Judge Dredd print (above ) for sale- the image above is not the finished article, still a few colour tweaks to make. I'll be in the Comic Village so see you there!
