He's a pipe-smoking man

My starting point for this character - the agent who arrives in a small town to investigate a strange disappearance - was the actor Fred MacMurray, although there's also a touch of the Brosnans about this study. Unintentional, but not entirely inappropriate.

Last Road to The Backwoods

I'm getting excited about this strip now, so here's the first of a few promo images I'm going to do. What secrets lie beneath the fragile veneer of the town of Archangel? And who's blood is that?

Sadie study

Sadie and her red dress

She's the femme fatale, obviously.


Dredd portrait

On a bit of a roll at the moment with these grey wash pencil portraits, so I thought I'd give old stoney face the same treatment. It's a nice break from all the period folk too. Took about 30 minutes.

And here they all are together

Well, some of them anyway. A few more to design yet, then I think I'm gonna have a crack at a pin-up as a sort of promotional piece.


Character studies

More character studies, quick 10-15 minute pencils sketches which are then quicly toned in photoshop. Really enjoying the looseness with these.


Preacher commission (with greytones)

Spent all day on a new Durham Red pin-up, then toned this up (without the wacom I might add) in about 20 minutes. Guess which one I prefer?



Worked on a Hellboy scene last night, then quickly sketched this afterwards at about 1.30 in the morning. Quite like it.


Man With The White Eyes

So as you may be aware, I have an 'illustrator' page on Facebook, and when I noticed that the number of 'likes' was approaching 300 the other week, I decided to do a free sketch for whoever became the lucky 300th. I threw it open to them - what would they like me to draw? The answer, from a very nice Polish lady, was a picture of 'Zly', or the 'Man with the white eyes' (its english language title) - a polish postwar novel that features a sort of Zorro-type outlaw guy. I confess to not having read the book at all, and it's a pretty obscure request I know, but this is what I came up with. As I say, absolutely no idea how accurate this depiction is, but I thought the noir-ish route was a safe enough bet!


Tulip O'Hare

Another one for the Preacher Project. Just added some quick tones in photoshop for this version. This plus another two pics will feature in the finished book.
