My Bad...

So..... hi.

My apologies for the blog silence. Life's been rather hectic of late but I've been doodling away (and just not updating here). Other spots to see me update too is my Facebook page, Instagram (where I update about everything!) and twitter -  iff'n you're interested.

Anyhow, what have I been up to?
- I have some comic pages to share with you (Blade Runner done in Mike Mignola's style!).
- I have, of course, been drawing pretty ladies.
- I'll be starting a series of portriats of Alt girls soon (and more news to follow on that).
- an Amanda Palmer project
- an Emilie Autumn inspired comic.

And hopefully a rejig of the blog soon enough. I'm working on my branding so things should all look spiffy and super professional soon.

I've also been working away on a submission for a potential gig. Ask anyone, I'm ridiculously excited about this. Fingers crossed! Heck, toes crossed too!

You can also expect a lot of comic artist gushing. I'm getting back in the habit of reading again (oh, how I missed you!) and, boy, have I seen a whole lot of pretties. I just finished Batwoman Elegy with some gorgeous work (and superb paneling) by J.H. Williams III and Dave Stewart on colours. It is a thing of beauty. And seriously...dat paneling! Another one I''m currently reading (at long last) is Scarlet! Oh, you pretty thing. Alex Maleev's artwork is just stunning, and Bendis tells a fantastic story. I'll come back to all of this again...but with less gushing and more actual talking.
But, another day!

I'll leave you with something shiny 'til next time. If you haven't seen the movie The Devil's Carnival (from the same folks behind Repo! The Genetic Opera) then go put your eyes and ears to it. It's a fantastical horror music. And it looks amazing - the sets, the costumes, the make up. From the get go of this movie I loved it's aesthetic. And the songs are brilliant. It's exactly my cup of tea. Speaking of which, it also stars Emilie Autumn as the vicious Painted Doll. The story is really interesting, with a sequel in the works to follow the plot's flip side. It follows the (after)lives of three unfortunate souls, each representing one of Aesop's fables.
I was incredibly impressed with it - a rarity for me and movies lately. If it sounds like it might be your thing, then definitely check it out.
(This video is only slightly spoilery, but the outcome is kind of expected.)
