Captain America private commission

This commission was a lot of fun, it was for a employee leaving a company, he is a huge comics and Cap fan (obviously) I was going for a silver age marvel feel, not to sure if that totally came through...
I was really impressed at his co workers thoughtfulness, they sent me buckets of reference for everyone, in every panel! 

While I'm on the subject... I'm happy to do private commissions of any kind!

Here's a bit of inspirational talk 

that I really liked from panel 4!

Has the internet made cheapskates of all of us?

From this months FHM...
“Quality journalism is not cheap, and an industry that gives away its content is simply cannibalising its ability to produce good reporting. The digital revolution has opened many new and inexpensive distribution channels but it has not made content free.  We intend to charge for all our news websites.”

Zine fair at the NGA Canberra

Thanks to all who supported us on the day! Great to see and chat to so many new and familiar faces, and the NGA's Gandel hall was very classy and spacious. I have to mention the chairs (what?) yes the chairs! So comfortable!! Unlike most shows the NGA chairs have my backsides stamp of approval!
Tom Bonin "DICKS" comic was a stand out for me, and it turns outs that we both love a lot of the same comics. 
Of course thanks to for making the show happen and the invite, and to Ben Craddock for these pics too...

"trust me..they're all good!!"

(note the chairs... ahhh comfy)

Supanova Sydney 2010 ... what a show!!

Firstly I have to thank my wonderful wife and fun loving nieces for all their help at the stand, as well as my brother Joe and my former partner in crime David Tang!! It was great to see so many new and familar faces at the Sydney show and my thanks to all the good people that came by to support me. It also helps to be neighboured with the uber talented (and popular) Stewart McKenney...

"International design champion ... Mr Tang returns!"

"Sketch monkey sketch!"

I'm kicking myself for forgetting my camera, 'cause the cospaly was outstanding, I was busting to meet the Immomens but I only got a very brief chat in (more gushing on my part..)

Luckily, I managed to sneak away from my stand on the Saturday, to attend a talk by the legendary Joe Kubert... wow, what a mild mannered inspirational speaker. He shared insightful knowledge, and some great old stories about his artistic journey... warmed the depths of my geeky heart.

But I gotta thank my mate Tim McEwen for personally introducing me to Mr Joe Kubert, as he effortlesly sketched Tim a sweet little portrait of Sgt Rock... then Tim also managed to get a photo of Mr Kubert and myself... Tim you ROCK!!!

Hades & Persphone in progress

I've always thought the story of Hades and Persphone (the abduction) was a great myth explaining the change of seasons. Here's some pics my wife shot of the piece in progress...I'm working on in at A2 size which is much bigger than I'm use to...(Scanning PAIN!!!)

I'll post the final version soon...

SUPANOVA Melbourne 2010 "It's my first time!!"

Friendly natives

Thanks to all the friendly Victorians who came round to the Littlehammer stand and made a few healthy purchases! It was our first time at Supanova Melbourne and I was impressed with the crowds, however not the crazy crowds that we experienced in Brisbane last year.

Paul Spencer out classing me

It was great meeting some "new" creatives like Paul Spencer ( a great Supanova neighbour), and Jeffrey 'CHAMBA' Cruz and Hugh. way too talented for there own good!

Wendy and Stewart

Stewart tells it how it is!

It's always great to catch up with old friends like the very talented and helpful Stewart McKenny and his lovely and equally helpful wife Wendy. Shout out to Doug Holgate and Colin Wilson for being so bloody talented!

Cheers to old mates Tim McEwan and Stephen Ford! And much love to my Rachael for actually coming to the show, taking these pictures, AND putting up with me!

Marvel Super Hero Squad Book!

Finally, I can brag about my new kids book for Marvel. It's called "Hulk saves the day!" And I have to say that "smurfy" looking heros are a lot harder to draw than they look, but of course heaps of fun...

I should also mention that I'll be in Melbourne next weekend April 16-18 at the Royal Showgrounds promoting the new book at SUPANOVA! So if you're in Melbourne town drop by the Littlehammer stand!

Flying monkeys

I knew it was going to be a great day, when the client wanted me to draw flying monkeys ...

Laika didn't have to die
I don't make a habit of reviewing or gushing over great graphic novels. However I read Laika by Nick Abadzis this weekend and damn if it wasn't one of the best graphic novels I've read in ages. This is an emotional charged story that works beautifully as a graphic novel ... so do your self a favor .. end of gushing.

Spock and Zarabeth

A little piece for my valentines! We've become big Trekkies (so much so that we have watch nearly all of Star Trek in less than a year... AND we met Mr Nimoy, that's not easy when you live in Australia) and I know "All our yesterdays" is one of her favs.

And I use to say that "Trek" was boring...
