The Brothers - Initial Artwork Sneak Peak

Although Trystan describes them as 'first passes' - I think this sketch is just too cool not to share!

It depicts the two brothers who are integral to the plot of 'Timepoint', a story that we're producing for The Pschedelic Journal of Time Travel.  Trystan's opted for a 'Ruritanian' look which, as they say in America, like totally works.

It's A Dirty Job... Artist Revealed!

So, after using my incredible metal powers to bend him to my will (I asked him nicely!), the extremely talented Paul McCallan is to do the art duties of my Hallowscream story (post here) which is named 'It's A Dirty Job...'

I targeted him specifically because a.) he's brilliant and b.) his style is absolutely perfect for this short, two page horror story.

Paul has appeared in Futurequake #23 which was the same issue that featured my first published work.  When it came out, we talked on Twitter that it would be cool to work together sometime and so now here we are!

Here's one of Paul's panels from FQ#23 - click on it for his website!

Hallowscream Success

When I was younger, the only comic that I had on weekly subscription was The Eagle.  In 1984 (yes, I am that old) the Eagle picked up another title, incorporating it to become Eagle and Scream.

Scream had survived for 15 issues on its own before being cancelled and even joining with Eagle only prolonged its life slightly.  The final issue of Eagle and Scream was to be in March 1985.
However, Scream now lives on!  Albeit in a slightly different name and form. Brought to you by the team of dedicated horror specialists at Back From The Depths , they now produce the annual horror anthology called Hallowscream.
All 5 issues can be downloaded for FREE by clicking the picture below:-
Anyway, the point of all this is, that after (last count 3!) failed attempts to get a story accepted, I've finally managed to write a script good enough for Mr McNasty himself to approve.
No artist attached as yet, but I'll keep you posted!
