Something Old, Something New...

Well... nearly finished 2008..phew..

It seems like a million years since I started 'Tank Girl - Skidmarks' with Alan in the Judge Dredd Megazine... I'm really pleased with how it's developing both story wise, and style wise..

So it's odd to go back and see the first episode again, which ├╝ber wonder colourist Christian Krank, the most patient man in comics, is recolouring for the US Release in 2009.

Here's th opening Splash.

Christian's put in so much work, and put up with so much vague direction fom me..Thank you Sir..I'm so lucky to be working with such a gentleman.

Hope everyone's warm, happy and getting ready for the rollercoaster year ahead!

Love, Lukewarm Tea and Kitkats

Thank you Everyone for your friendship, support, feedback and patience with my getting to grips with what I'm doing . I really am very grateful.

We're working really hard to bring you some fun books for 2009.

Love, tanks and pencils,
Rufus

Mini Protest

Young designer Zara Arshad asked me to do a mini protest board for a project she's doing to mark the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

It's 2 1/2 inches square...

I look forward to seeing what she does with them.

TIME BOMB, BABY!

Well... marginally quicker than expected..

Here's the linework..

Photobucket

The Bomber will be called Time Bomb... after the Dee Dee Ramone song... a childhood favourite.

Sketchy Bomber!

Look out below....

These are the roughs for an upcoming pin up..

I sent the first one as an idea to Alan, and he pointed out A- it's a bit dull, B- the body language is more Tank Girl than Jet Girl.. (It's great having someone you can bounce ideas off, and to push you, so you don't crap it up...)

Photobucket

So I quickly revised it.. while we babbled on the phone.

Photobucket

I'll post the finished line work tomorrow...
