COMICDOM Con Athens, 30 MARCH - 1 APRIL 2012



I'll be arriving in Athens tomorrow evening, and can't wait to meet you all at Comicdom Con Athens 2012!

I'm giving a talk/presentation on Saturday at 12pm on 'From script to finished page', so come and laugh at me!

On Sunday there's a Q&A at 3 pm with Mike Carey and Yildiray Cinar!

The rest of the time I'll be about and signing and sketching...and drinking and eating and probably talking too much...

There's also a show of original 2000ad artwork to celebrate 2000ad's 35th Anniversary so I've lent loads of classic artwork for the occasion...

So... come and meet some amazing writers and artists and check out some classic thrill powered artwork!

See you there!

Run Brunswick Run!

Blam!

    A quick Tankie sketch done in 2008 for my good friend David Tulloch's mate's anniversary of his comic book 'Brunswick'.  (The little yellow fucker she's holding up)

I was watching Platoon while I drew this... Pretty obvious from what she's wearing.

David and I used to do fanzines/mini comics together, back when I was a teen. We're gonna collect them up later this year.

Nkondi

     One of my earliest memories was looking at copies of old National Geographics.
My parents always had lots of old issues, and I poured over them continuously. I loved the illustrations and recreations/cutaways of ships, spaceships, turbines etc... but what I really loved was the photography. (My little brother's dream as a child was being a photographer for NG)

    I remember an issue about the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and a feature on the witchdoctors and their fetish figures... Nkondi.
   These amazing carved figures were pierced with nails or blades to incite magical retribution against wrongdoers, evil spirits, and malcontents.
  I used to make my own ones out of balsa wood!

    I collect a lot of stuff, old religious figures, broken taxidermy, robots, etc... and spend my occasional spare day off trawling Antique markets, and to my delight, I found a pair of Nkonde figures recently.
The big one still has the mirror in his chest cavity, to deflect evil. He has glass eyes, and nails driven into the top of his head and bound with magic herbs.

I love the artistry of them, but also the brutal nature of the magic invoked. Things like this are a real inspiration to me.

Comicdom Con Athens 2012



The well-established comic festival Comicdom Con Athens 2012 (30 MARCH-1 APRIL 2012) opens its gates to the Athenian public featuring once more international guests talking about their art, young and independent artists showcasing their creative talent, the exhibition “2000 A.D.:The Judge Dredd Revolution”, screenings and workshops, the renowned, well-stocked bazaar with new comic publications from the Greek publishing houses, the Cosplay Competition, Comicdom Awards, and more...



The only Greek festival exclusively devoted to comics, Comicdom Con Athens, is organized for the seventh consecutive year at the Hellenic American Union.

Special guests for this year are: the popular Italian artist Milo Manara, the distinguished British screenwriter Mike Carey creator among other of X-MEN Legacy, the rising Turk artist Yildiray Cinar, and the British comics artist Rufus Dayglo, widely known for relaunching Tank Girl. American independent cartoonist Douglas Paszkiewicz (invited by Jemma Press Publications), and British illustrator Zara Slattery (in cooperation with the British Council) are also included in the guests list.


The exhibition "2000 A.D.: The Judge Dredd Revolution", is also organized as part of the festival and in cooperation with the renowned British artist Rufus Dayglo. The exhibition is dedicated to the historic and highly influential British comics anthology 2000 A.D., which is the “home” of Judge Dredd, one of the most popular comic characters worldwide.
The animated film Dr Seuss’ The Lorax’ is being premiered in Greece as part of the festival’s screenings. The program also includes screenings of the films TheIndependents and Despicable Me. Finally, integral part of this year’s festival is a rather interesting program for children based on creativity and fantasy.
