White Van

I've started a lot more comics than I've ever finished. Rushing headlong into a story without knowing how it's going to end can yield interesting results. Sometimes though it can just get bogged down and you can't be bothered finishing it. I dug this start out of an attic sketchbook box recently so it must be about 5 years old. There are some alright bits in there but I have to admit defeat - its well mired. Click here for the story so far.

And More Notage

Jim Connolly has kindly (and hyperbolically!) put up one of my notes on his blog. Have a good gawk at Jim's top notch crispy artwork on there and all.

More Notes

Good old Salvo put up one of me notes on his Blog recently. You must have a thorough look at his stuff - the lad is brewing up something insane and inspired in the Irish midlands and drip feeding us addictive doses. Word has it something printed is imminent (or should that be immanent) - I am tenterhooked.

Edit: Stop press Addendum
Even as I was writing the above, winging its way to me via an post was the following 'Note to Philip' from Salvo himself. Astonishingly sharp draftmanship in stark contrast to the grubby missives I do be sending - pure class. And not a dash of whiteout - I thought for a brief second it was a printout - what a wonder!

Here are a few older notes of mine:

I should acknowledge: this note thing is Robert Crumb 'Your Vigor for Life Appalls me' inspired - that book is a collection of his early letters to pals, quite often accompanied with hand-drawn covers. Highly recommended book if you can track one down.
