HOME BREW VAMPIRE BULLETS

G’Day,

Like comics?

Like ozploitation?

Like ball-tearing-edge-of-your-seat-awesome?

Go, pre-order this for the paltry sum of $1.99 AUD (it’s digital, so no postage involved – THE FUTURE IS NOW!)

Rumour has it that my upcoming comic, Heavy Angel may be serialised in this very publication, so if you like my work, and want to see some Gonzo-Metal-sword-and-sorcery craziness, check it out!

Cheers

Recent Tumblring Sketchings

Hi all,

I’ve been fairly inactive on here for a bit – mainly due to being incredibly busy with the day job, but also because most of my time has been spent refining some new techniques. For those interested, you can follow my semi-regular sketchings and such right here

Recent scribbles include:

You know you're onto something good...

… when you get ripped off.

This is a design of mine that I created about 4+ years ago, had a very successful run on Teefury (around 900 sales) and is probably my biggest seller.

While doing a little random google searching for fun, I came across these:

Anyone know any decent lawyers?

The Game of Kings - Prequel comic begins today

For the better part of the last three years, I, along with a great team of fellow bubblers have been working on a chess-themed collaborative project called the Game of Kings. Featuring a board populated by creatures as varied as the backgrounds and skills of the artists involved, the second phase (the battle/chess game itself) wrapped up recently (you can explore the whole story starting from here)

However, as anyone who has explored the various pieces of the board, read their bios, or the additional prelude pieces contained within the GoK profile would discover, there is a wealth of untapped material concerning the two opposing armies and the worlds they inhabited before their climactic struggle began.

So, proving yet again that they are two of the mightiest contributors (or most foolha…

Game of Kings - detail shots

As you may or may not have seen over here my fellow Game of Kings collaborator shared some close up shots from her first contribution to phase two. In that spirit, I thought I’d share a few closeup shots of my latest entry into the fray (click here for the full piece) As with Lily’s contribution, the maximum image size for RB doesn’t quite show off the details, so, here you go:

If you haven’t taken the opportunity to delve into the work already on display, and you like what you see here, I wholeheartedly recommend checking it out. There’s also a challenge you can take part in to contribute your own spin on the material (prizes and glory are also on offer).

GAME OF KINGS - THE STORY SO FAR, AND A CHALLENGE

After a ridiculous amount of planning, collaboration, blood, sweat and tears, the Game of Kings collaborative art project has started rolling out its second phase – the story itself.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we have been publishing individual parts of this story, accompanied by artwork from the team of artists. You can click on any of the thumbnails below to navigate to a particular entry.

And this is only the tip of the iceberg. Over the coming weeks, you’ll be seeing more artwork, writing, comic sequences and behind the scenes info. The whole group has put an incredible amount of effort into this project, and we’re very excited to finally share it with the public.

A CHALLENGE

To celebrate going live with this phase of the project, we’ve opened …

The Game of Kings - the battle starts NOW!

Over 2 years of collaboration, over 20 artists, and over 60 individual pieces of work comprising the characters and their story are finally ready to go.

The Board has been set, and the Game begins!

We hope you enjoy the ride – we’ve certainly enjoyed building it!

Evening Sketch update from the Tumblr blog

Hi all,

Some of you may have read that I’ve started a Tumblr blog. One of the main reasons for this is that I wanted a home for rough sketches to live.

So, if you head over to here you’ll see last night’s sketch review. I’ll be posting fairly regularly, so if you want more sketchy goodness, bookmark the page or follow along!

A couple of other sketches from the blog:
