Let's see if I can claw back to where I was in my late teens, and go a bit further this time.
Back then, it was comics. All I wanted in life was a job at 2000AD, where Bisley had just started teaching a whole generation of artists how to draw and paint, and Zenith was still being the best thing to ever grace its pages.
It didn't happen, and I got real jobs instead.
So here's some old stuff. I'll be dropping newer things in here so that I -and anyone else who wants to look- can see how I''m getting on.
Due to my aims in life, there'll be copyrighted characters that I've drawn, and if it's a problem then the mods can always take them down.
The first is of Slaine. I loved the Fabry version, thought Bisley's was a bit musclebound but still brilliant. Wondered how I'd draw him if I had the chance.
Second and third are all I have left of a strip called Crepuscule, which I was drawing for Dave Slade (whoops, I think I dropped something!) back in the late 80s. Back then, I knew him as the guy who'd been a BMX pro for Dyno/GT. Maybe he still has the originals, I don't foresee getting to ask him anytime soon. Nowadays he's directing movies like Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night.
The Cupid/Demon was done in what must've been a particularly jaded period. I drew and painted it whilst sitting in small huts guarding wasteland around the Royal Albert Docks. When I said 'real jobs', I meant the type that pay regularly. Not the rewarding type with prospects and a future.
More to come, I just ran out of time.
