Zom-B Baby breaks out today!

Today, 26th September, sees the release of Darren Shan’s Zom-B Baby in the UK and Ireland. Here’s a couple of the pencil roughs I did for the interior illustrations.

Early Alby Figgs and Jessie London character studies

Discovered yesterday while trawling through my unconventional filing system looking for something else, this 7 year old character study from a Pleece Bros graphic novel that never quite got off the ground, Jessie London, featuring a young bequiffed Alby Figgs.

Alby Figgs back tomorrow!

This Friday , September the 20th at around tea-time, everyone’s favourite 70 something amateur natterer, Alby Figgs, returns for brand new adventures in psych-babble street philosophy and elasticated truth stretching. After this season 2 opener, there’ll be a new monthly schedule, every first Friday from October, expanded stripage (two tiers–good), full colour colouring in and a brand new wooly jumper.

All this at the ridiculous cost of no pence to you. Keep your browsing fingers and thumbs hovering over this link http://albyfiggs.wordpress.com/ till then!

Post Edinburgh post

Here’s a link to a short piece I wrote for the Cape Graphic Novels Tumblr page about my recent very enjoyable experience being a guest at this year’s Stripped festival, part of The Edinburgh Book Festival, plus a photo of some shady characters masquerading as 2000AD contributors. That’s water by way, for the re-hydration purposes.
