INKS ARE DONE!!


Finally, I've finished the ink linework on Uncle Silas Book 1! All 126 pages worth.
I'm off to the pub for a gin and soda and a hearty steak...
and then it's onto the colours.
Thankfully Tom's working on the flatting and it looks like I've got a couple of other magic elves to help, so this stage should really scream ahead.
Santé!

POLITICAL CAPTION CARTOONS

These were done as a caption competition on federalelection.com.au which I think is now kaput. They were used in the build up to the election, with a new cartoon every week which the public could enter captions for and vote on. Winners received a signed print of the cartoon in the post.
Lucky ducks.

MORE HARRY STRIPS...





HARRY THE DOG- NEWS HOUND





Harry the Dog- News Hound is a comic strip I've been doing since mid 2007 for the Sunday Telegraph's Funday comics section. The section's mascot, he reports on various promotional themes for the week as well as hanging out with his younger brother Max and getting up to general mischief. I've always shied away from outright spruiking a product or promotion and instead I've usually taken the piss. Kids prefer that anyway.

THE WEEK


Here's my latest WEEK cover effort. Kevin Rudd as your friendly family snake oil peddling doctor...

GLAND RIGHTS...



Here are two Tim Blair editorial illustrations I did last year for the Daily Telegraph detailing his cancer experience. While I wasn't able to find the exact articles they accompany in the huge library of tim's blogoshpere I found something at least...
I can say this though: the editorials were unashamedly forthright and funny. As you can see from the second illo- Tim won. Hats off to that!
My own mum passed from stomach cancer years ago so I was in line to beat the crap out of the little cancerous feller afterwards, but Tim didn't leave me much.
Good on him.
