A quick update as I'll be at Thoughtbubble this year as an exhibitor for the first time in forever under Engine Comics, which I'm relaunching in 2016. I'll likely have pages for previewing of upcoming projects and will be doing sketches. Look forward to seeing you there.

With lots of other Real World stuff going on at the moment, having these commissions for Lawgiver MK 2 to concentrate on has been a welcome distraction. Although I'm not able to attend the convention now, at least I know the original art is on its way to the convention organisers to pass on.

I'll be doing another ten commissions for those on the reserve list, once my deadline commitments are out of the way for May and June. The next convention I'll be attending is Thoughtbubble in Leeds where I'll have (half) a table and hopefully some honest to goodness new comics to sell. Fingers crossed.

So last year I attended the first Lawgiver convention, an intimate gathering of Dredd fans and creators in Birmingham. Much fun was had by all, however I was disappointed with my sketching skills on the day. I've been out of the con circuit for too long and my chat and scribble muscles were massively out of practice. Unfortunately once you let the sketches out into the world, however poor, they can always come back to haunt you.

A year later and Lawgiver MK2 is at the old Ramada Hotel in Bristol, a well known destination for the UK comics fan, and I decided to open up an advance commission list on the Lawgiver FB page. Within ten minutes all ten spots were claimed, which was encouraging, and although I don't charge for sketches as a rule, I did ask for people to make a minimum £10 donation to a children's charity. As the requests started coming in I started to spend far more time on the sketches than I would at my con table- using them as an opportunity to try a few different techniques and warming up the drawing hand before moving onto the stuff on my deadline list.

This is one I'm relatively happy with- technique wise I wasn't really sure where I was going, but it seemed to have come out ok. I'll post a few more as time goes on.
