Two new panels

2 panels from the story I'm currently working on. It won't see completion until late January probably. I'm listening to Can and Husker Du while drawing these.

Here are two new sketches of Ralph Race I did last night. Despite being a total palooka, this guy should always look heroic and up to the task if he makes any sudden movements.

The Living Proton

This guy showed up in an anthology published in aid of the Irish aid organisation GOAL a few months back. Anyone interested in buying a great comic full of diverse and charming strips while supporting said organisation should go here:

The Proton will be making a return visit in the upcoming Windell retrospective.

Full Page

This is the first time I've posted a full page layout from the upcoming Windell comic. This is a fair indication of the prevailing style of a lot of the reprinted stories. Please forgive the slightly crooked scan.

Milt Windell

Here's an old portrait of Milton Windell, founder and CEO of WC. It was drawn by one of his original employees, Lonk Davis, during the company's heyday. It's interesting to look at a more figurative type of drawing done by Davis given that he's more renowned for his big-eyed cartoon characters like Honcho and Gestapo Goose.

Clear Lines

Here's another clear line composition that pretty much sums up the way I insist on doing everything right now. By keeping the surfaces and the lines uniform you end up with a flat, sterile look that I really like. Someone described it as being very instruction-manually, and that sounds about right. One of my favourite books is my mothers old nurses textbook. It's chock-full of clear line illustrations on cheery stuff like how to apply catheters and bandages and so on. The drawings are spare and purely functional but I absolutely love them.

These are samples from a 4-pager that's part of a one-off comic that will be printed sometime around next February or March. It's going to be like the bible code, except with sequential art and a healthy sense of irreverence.

Oktobre heraldes muchas imaginumus mythologicus allegoricanus...

Today is the first day of October. This is probably my favourite month in the whole year because the days really start to get colder and shorter and Halloween is coming.

While I don't particularly like seeing rows and rows of pumpkins and zombie masks cluttering up shop shelves way in advance of the festival (commodification makes everything look and feel the same) it still remains a much-loved time of the year for me.
Samhain reminds you to revel in that twilight area where everything becomes cloudy and mysterious. So, here's to the summer's end and the celebratory spit-roasting of first born infants in the sacrificial flames of the Hallow tide.

1. Print this picture out.
2. Neatly cut around the circular framework imprisoning the boy (mind yourself with the scissors).
3. Get the resulting circular-shaped piece of flimsy paper laminated at your own expense.
4. Presto.
