TANK GIRL - BAD WIND RISING #4 COVER!

TANK GIRL - Bad Wind Rising Cover 4 for Previews magazine..

I dunno if this'll be the final cover...It was originally just a doodle.

I only had one day to do this... due to sheer stupidity... not necessarily mine.

Andenne BD Festival, and a new Cover!

Thanks to all in Andenne Belgium for the lovely, if wet weekend!
     It was amazing meeting so many great artists, and lovely people.

 Back in the studio, trying to catch up on the 8 billion emails, messages and other mailings..agh.. I'm falling further and further behind.. Please bear with me.. I am trying, just overwhelmed!

Just did the cover for 'TANK GIRL - BAD WIND RISING #3'  Tankie in the dreamtime... It'll be cropped on the cover as Americans object to seeing boobs on covers..although death, dismemberment, weapons and violence is fine. Go figure.

We'll have  the 'We hate TANK GIRL' TPB out in early December from Image comics, and the first issue of 'TANK GIRL - Bad Wind Rising' out in mid December. Order your copies now! We need your support!

Love to you all... x x x

Review of TANK GIRL - Skidmarks on 'Ain't it Cool'

A really rather nice review of our trade paper back, 'TANK GIRL - Skidmarks' <3

AIN'T IT COOL website

Sorry I've been quiet..I've been in Norway with my neighbours.. swimming in lakes, climbing hills, and drinking and canoeing..at the same time..


Note the rum and coke in hand... now that's balance, folks.

And we built a fucking huge fire. I like fire... but big fire I love!

TANK GIRL - BAD WIND RISING #2 COVER...IN COLOUR!

Here's the finished art for the second issue of our new series, 'TANK GIRL - BAD WIND RISING'.
  I coloured this in Photoshop, from pencilled art.. and just has some simple texture.

The last series I painted the covers..but this time I wanted something simpler.. which for some reason is often more difficult!

Now for a hard earned cup of coffee!

Here's the base colours for the foreground...


Getting there..

The ROYAL ESCAPE Trade paper back!

Pinup for TANK GIRL - The ROYAL ESCAPE Trade paper back (Out from IDW Comics....In a couple of months... Order now..)

I reworked this from one of the unused Pristeen16 covers that never got used... Recycling can be fun.

Now..I'm off to the Secret Garden Party festival with my friends and neighbours.. really looking forward to it.
My neighbours are running a theatre sight at the festival, putting on events... and I've watched them building props and rehearsing for weeks...
If you're going to be there, come along to the Nocturnia for Lost Children.. we'll be there!

I also just receiver Gerry Talaoc's beautiful painting an canvas fro the inside front cover of our next Image special... He's done an amazing job, painting over my pencils... but more importantly it's a dream come true for me.
  I read his 'Unknown Soldier' DC comics religiously as a kid.. and this opportunity to do some work with him really has been one of the highlights of my professional career.. I wish I could go back and tell the ten year old me...
 Gerry's work is incredibly under appreciated. He is truly one of the most dynamic artists I've ever looked at.
 I was such a lucky kid to see so much good art..thanks to my Mum and dad for being so indulgent.

And of course... massive thanks to you, Mr Talaoc.

This week has been a blur.. missing cat (Thankfully she turned up safe and sound),  doing a back up strip, and editting the Image book,  this beautiful painting, and a music festival.

I'd best get packed...

Beijing - The Gathering 2010!

Beijing was insane!

I arrived Wednesday, and was kindly picked up with artist extraordinaire, Phil Hale, at Beijing airport and taken to our wonderful hotel! (Thanks 3A!!! x x x )



People had queued for days for the exclusive toys that 3A produced, and to get signed books!


We finished setting up the show with only minutes to spare!



There was even a 1:1 scale Martin bot! It's cast iron, and articulated! 3A don't fuck around when it comes to robots!


The show opened Thursday night with a private view, where we opened champagne, and did a live art event!









There was a fantastic mix of foreign visitors, Beijing locals, toy robots, and beautiful paintings!


Jeremy Geddes, Pitu, Soph Geddes, and Ashley Wood, in front of prints of Jeremy's beautiful art.


Thanks to Ashley Wood and Kim at 3A toys for the generousity, and kindness. They were wonderful hosts, and I'm so lucky to have been invited!
  It was so lovely to meet Phil Hale, Jeremy and Sophie, Pitu, Darius and all the other wonderful peoples!

I'll attempt to write more when the jetlag wears off!
