Just a little clutch of sketches from the wee Exeter Comic Expo earlier on today:
Not Quite 22 Sketches | Lee O'Connor's Blog
Just drew on the windows of the Drift Record Shop yesterday - this window was the most ambitious I/we’ve done yet as it was an eight-frame comic spread accross eight giant window panes!
The story was written by R.G. at Drift, and for the common touch, concerned (un)popular hate figure Simon Cowell and a Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol' analogue…
Dev-Con 1 Sketches
Just got back from the 22 Panels Comic Art Show in Falmouth (yes, the name is a nod to artist Wally Wood‘s ’22 Panels That Always Work’ reference sheet) - Cornwall’s first comic event, apparently – the cool thing was the focus on comic art. Here are some sketches I did while I was there, hanging out with the region’s best artists…
See what they did there? The con’s in Devon, and ‘Dev-con’ is like ‘Def-con’, you get the picture. Anyway, this was mad busy, click through for lots of sketches…
Subterranean Iron-Pick Blues
Little limited-palette digi-painting I did quickly after I’d just finished a long photo-shopping session. This is a Dwarf (yes, one of those Tolkein-esque fantasy things) from the indie game phenomenon that is Dwarf Fortress.

Evil Star Graphic Novel Workings #15: Haçienda Fulla Hate
I don’t usually put up much of the more… ‘Normal’ Illustration work I do on here, but I did these pieces for an American greetings cards company a while ago, was given quite a lot of freedom and as a result quite liked what I ended up producing:
Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the desperate main characters of Evil Star are left no option but to infiltrate the villain’s hiedaway in the dead of night…
