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.
Stripped: Edinburgh Book Festival interview
Ahead of my appearance at Stripped, part of the Edinburgh Book Festival tomorrow, Friday the 23rd here’s a link to a recent interview now up on their website, talking about Montague Terrace, The Great Unwashed, Velocity, Darren Shan’s Zom-B books and much much more.
Just to recap, I’ll be holding a Zom-B drawing workshop from 18.30 and sharing a panel with Roger Gibson from 20.30 on Friday, talking about Montague Terrace. Then on the Sunday I’ll be sharing the stage with David Bishop, Dan Abnett and Robbie Morrison talking about 2000AD at 15.00.
More details here from the Stripped website
Tickets are now on sale for this August’s Stripped Festival, part of the Edinburgh Book Festival which runs from 10-26th August. I’m hosting a Zom-B drawing workshop from 18.30-19.30 on Friday the 23rd giving tips and tricks to budding artists on drawing zombies and the living dead (well, I just have to look in the mirror most days, but you kids might need some insiders knowledge) and talking about Montague Terrace later that evening from 20.30-21.30, where I’ll be sharing the stage with Roger Gibson, author of the Harker book series.
Then on the Sunday at 15.00, I’ll be joining a panel along with Dan Abnett to discuss the past, present and future of 2000AD.
There’s a whole host of amazing talent taking part throughout the festival. To find out more and book tickets in advance, check out the Edinburgh Book Festival site.
Dandridge, The Copper Conspiracy for 2000AD
Part 1 of the brand new ‘spook-punk’ series, Dandridge, The Copper Conspiracy, written by Alec Worley and drawn and coloured in by moi for 2000AD is out this week in all good newsagents, comic shops and intergalactic petrol stations!
For more info on this new 8 part weekly series and more Dandridge facts, figures and grooming procedures, check out Alec’s blog.
I’ve just finished a short 5 episode run on the new 2000 AD series Dandridge, written by Alec Worley which is out now (progs 1710 to 1714)! This series revives, in a way, the dandyish hero with more than a passing resemblance to 70s cad Jason King, Dr. Spartacus Dandridge, originally featured in our previous collaboration, Antiquus Phantasma and is set in an alternative 1980s London full of retro-harnessed spooks. The first two episodes are out now, hardly before the pixelated inks had a chance to dry and I urge you to check it out at your local newsagent. More details here from the 2000 AD website and here’s a link to Alec’s blog, currently featuring a guest slot from the good Doctor himself.
I’ll be posting up more artwork and sketches soon.
