Basically someone that we worked with came in one morning and said they had seen 'Dawn of the Dead'...Jim thought they said 'Donal O' Dead', as if they went to see an Irish Goth rocker...it grew from there...and I did a couple of sketches...the one above is Shamus MacBeth.
Donal is around somewhere, I just have to dig him up!

Here she is!!!
Space Pirate Extraordinaire!!!
This is a rough ink version of a Deb Bonair teaser poster for Pixelstrips.com. I'm writing the script and inking it and amazing penciller, artistic genius and all-round good guy Rory Hensley is doing the pencils (as if you couldn't guess!). That's my crappy inks over his stupendous pencils.
Check out Rory's blog for some fantastic work. It's on the links to the right...he's Sketchy Characters.

Yep. Good 'ol Judge Dredd. My all time favorite comic book character. I did this a while back for my kid. He had seen that gawdawful Stallone Dredd movie! I told him I'd draw him the real Dredd. Accept no substitutions!
A buddy of mine Al went to the comicon in San Diego and got me John Wagners autograph...THE JOHN WAGNER! The genius who created Dredd, Darkies Mob, Strontium Dog, Robo-Hunter, Dredger, Button Man...and who wrote History of Violence!
His Dredd strip was soooo far ahead of it's time...he had our obsession with reality TV shows in the strip in the late 70's! and Americas obesity problem and obssession with plastic surgery and celebrity, of course, with a bizzarre twist!
I'm always really surprised at how many comic book geeks in the US don't know this mans genius! I rank Mr. Wagner right up there with the great Will Eisner. His Dredd strip has inspired probably all the Brits that work in the US comicbook industry...some directly!
Get to know this man and his works...you won't be disappointed.

Okay! Here's the last image I'll be posting of 'The Man from Malego'.
As soon as the the strip is finished and Kevin has it lettered and colored...I'll post a few teaser images...but to see the whole thing, you have to go to Pixelstrips to view it.
I'll let you all now when it's ready!

A rough thumbnail for a teaser poster for a comic-strip that myself and Rory Hensley are going to be working on. I'll be writing it and providing Rory with thumbnail layouts for each page...Not that the guy needs it!
Check out Rorys blog on the links column. The guy is an amazing artist...I feel really privileged and honored to have Rory draw this strip. I'll be inking the sucker. I hope I can do his pencils justice.
Anyhoo, the strip is about a female Space Pirate 'Deb Bonair'...it's gonna be a very light-hearted strip witht lots of fun and action and maybe some smart sci-fi (That's where Rory comes in!)
As soon as the teaser poster is pencilled and inked...I'll post an update.
Oh...The strip will be appearing exclusively on Pixelstrips.com

More to come tomorrow!
Kevin from Pixelstrips.com is gonna color and letter these pages! Kevin is awesome!!!! Just thought I'd share that with you!

The Man from Malego
This post brings back memories. This was a strip I did or actually re-did for a friend of mine. It's about a sexist bounty hunter tracking down Billy the Kid and her gang. It was a lot of fun...still haven't finished the whole thing, but I will and maybe ask Kevin from Pixelstrips.com if he would like to host it.
It was written by my friend George O' Shea and it was originally printed in a indie comic book that I had published back in Ireland. The publication was called 'Mainstream' . George did the original art and I had asked him years later if I could redraw it. He said sure...and I still ain't finished it. I'll get it done this year for sure...I've only got two pages left!!!
I'll post more panels over the next few weeks. Enjoy the bar scene as our Bounty Hunter's arrival brings the festivities to a close.

Another old sketch.
This is America...she's a genetically engineered soldier. The best of the best. I created the character a few years ago. Her story takes place in yet another cliched post-apocalyptic future.
Like Novak: Time Tech! I put this baby on the back burner...some day I'll return to her and get her story told.

Poor Ultramaiden gets zapped with the 'Gender' gun! I like this image and as soon as I put the page together...I'll publish the whole panel. I'm very happy about the way it's turning out!
I'm still toying around with the idea for a comic-strip. I might get it straigthened out some day!
And...Yes! That is a Batman doodle on the bottom left. I'll scan that in sometime in the near future.
