Dogman saves the World

I produced a 5 page strip called Dogman saves the World in response to a call for submissions to a book called:s

...Sorry I can't take your call right now but I'm off saving the world...

It is an anthology of cartoon art for charity and further details can be found here. I am only showing two pages at present as a requirement of the submission is for it not to be published in it's entirity elsewhere. Aside from preliminary thinking sketches all the work was done on Photoshop.

Spectoral Analysis

I was approached to produce artwork for a story called Spectoral Analysis for the Comics Creators Guild Annual. I was provided with an outline of the story and rough page break down but no dialogue. The idea is that the writer would construct that after I had furnished him with the artwork.

Again all work was done in Photoshop- even the preliminary sketches
  Magazines and Me
This isn't exactly for an anthology but for an exhibition. I received an email about an event called Between the Covers which is about Womens' magazines. It invited me to contibute in a number of ways to a particular part of the event including:

"3) Zinefest is part of a broader 'magazines' exhibition being held at the Women's Library in January (2009) called 'Between The Covers'. As part of the zine artwork exhibition, I invite you to submit a piece of original comics artwork - drawn especially for zinefest - on the theme of magazines and zines -- eg. a drawing or strip perhaps around a personal experience with a magazine/zine in some way (good, bad, funny, inspirational, etc. as a child/teen/adult etc.) This could even be a piece about an inspiring feminist magazine or zine you have read."

I thought it a wonderful opportunity to go into a rant about magazines but I feared spending a lot of time on it. At the time 24 hour comics day was about to happen and I decided that that would be a good perameter to keep to. OK I didn't do it in a single 24 hour hit but was dotted around over the course of a week or so while I wrangled with angst and other things. But I suppose the total amount of time spent was around 24 hours.

Because of this time constrant and the fact that I had various magazines and artifacts lying around I decided not to do too much drawing for this but employed the digital camera, the net and jump about in Photoshop. It is a bit of a departure for me. I display 4 of the 10 frames. They were designed to be an A5 zine and/ or for exhibition.

Again all work was done in Photoshop- even the preliminary sketches. The first two are the finished pages and the second two are without the text.
