Young Man Blues

There's been a distinct lack of blogginess around these parts lately and the main reason for this is the second issue of the Grinning Mask. As the next Birmingham Comics Show hurtles towards us, I'm scribbling away to get this together in time for this and I'm deliberately trying to steer clear of posting anything from the issue for fear of nasty 'spoilers'.

In the meantime, here's some sketchbook stuff I keep meaning to finish off and colour in.

Until next time.

How to paint a mural....

Step 1.
Agree what the kids (for whom you are painting the mural), want on their bedroom wall.

WARNING - at this stage the kids will probably want hundreds of cartoon characters, all captured in exact likenesses, and fighting away in some improbable location. Unless you've got a huge wall and a ridiculously large amount of time spare on your hands, it's best to whittle your list down to a few of their favourites.

Step 2.
Do your sketches.

Step 3.
Put paint on the wall until it's done.
