Entries in breaks (12)
It's been a busy couple of months, art-wise. It's always nice when a flurry of things get released; especially when you're like me and sometimes spend eight months working on a graphic novel that people won't see for years! (Alex Rider:Scorpia is out in February though, yay!). Rather than post them all individually, I thought this little banner would offer a taster. For more details on my projects, do check out my scrapbook. I've added the newest bits to it. ^_^
I wanted to pull out a couple of highlights for you. Since a couple of amazing covers featuring my new Doctor Who companion design have now been released in solicits, I figured it was safe to show her to you! This is Josie Day. Designed by me, written into creation by the lovely George Mann! Hi-Fi have done lovely things with the colours on this issue. ^_^
And the preview for Jem & the holograms issue 8 is up at CBR! The comic is out tomorrow. Kelly Thompson is writing incredible stuff and Victoria Robado candy-colours; you'll love it!
Last up: BREAKS is rocketing on and we're into issue 5! Malin and I are super excited about coming close to the end of arc one. this means THE BOOK!! ^_^
I'm off to Kendal tomorrow for the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival! I'm heading up a little early as I'm taking part in this year's 24 hour challenge. EEEEE! Wish me luck. We have a great bunch, but sleep is not invited. And I do like sleep! I hope to see some of you at the event! I'll try and be awake :D
This site is still alive! ^_^ Here's what's been going on over here:
It is with no small amount of joy that I can talk about this! I'll be guesting on issues 7-9 for IDW's Jem & the Holograms; as brought to new, amazing life by Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell. I'm a longtime Jem fan and love the new take on the series; so to be asked on board was ridiculously exciting ^_^
Also exciting was the opportunity to draw Wonder Woman. I mean, seriously...what an honour! Working on a script by Barbara Kesel; look out for sensation comics issue 13 ^_^
And my inner fangirl was reeling something crazy at being able to work with Square Enix on the community side of the incredible Life is Strange, by dontnod games. We've been making a series of promotional images relating to them game. It's an amazing game, and I've been a square fan for EVER, so it's been so exciting working with them ^_^
Last up, BREAKS is ever-growing. I'm up to 50 patrons on my patreon account now, which is just fantastic and means so much. Do please pop over and pledge if you're enjoying the comic by Malin Ryden and myself. Page 80 got uploaded this week!
I hope you all had a wonderful festive season. ^_^
BREAKS hit 52 pages recently, meaning - at a page a week - it's a year old! If you're not reading yet, now's a great time to catch up! Written by Malin Ryden and myself, pages by meeee :) And if you want to support my work, do pop along to my Patreon page!
In other exciting news, I worked on issue 12 of Dead Boy Detectives for Vertigo comics. Working over the layouts of none other but Mark Buckingham! It was a real treat. Lee Loughridge provided my lovely colours...he can't escape me recently, it seems!
This one's just a sneak of a tiny thing, but something that's made me very happy. I'm not drawing a comic, just providing an illustration, but if it goes through, it will be my first official connection to a character I've always adored. I wonder if you can guess who it is from this? ^_~
Yes, I have finally joined the 21st century. While you can of course order most of my work through bookshops and online generally, I wanted a spot to sell my more personal work, including the brand new BREAKS prologue, orders of which will be shipping out around May 22nd. But get your order in to reserve a copy!
Hullo, all! First up, I've been powering ahead on Alex Rider: Scorpia inks since my meeting with Walker a couple of weeks ago.
I can't wait to see how things look once Kate works her colour magic. Click the banner to be taken to the tumblr workblog for the book.
BREAKS is still churning along too. We're up to page 12 on the web edition now (do click through to take a read). We're also waiting on news of the printed prologue; a mini comic that will collect the first 22 pages of the comic - very exciting!
Last up: a reminder that you can now become a patron of my work for as little as $1 a month. If you like my work and would like to maybe see more BREAKS updates and content than what's currently on offer, then support my work and help make it happen. Each and every donation means so much. ^_^
One of my favourite things about the title Malin and I chose for our series is how punnable it is. :D
The lovely Steven Morris got in touch with us a little while ago to ask some questions, and the story is now up at ComicBookResources. Pretty cool, eh? Spot the little 'Latest Articles' section where Cortland is sat right next to the article about Moon Knight, by friends Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire. It's great to see our creations hanging out together ^_^
Meanwhile, I'm still working away on BREAKS pages. The printed prologue will be out in April (weeee!) and you can of course continue reading the whole thing for free over at the website (linked in the image above).
As you may know, Malin and I are working on this series independently of any publisher, which means my drawing time is all unpaid and done for love alone. That said, if you do want to show your appreciation in some way, or feel you'd like to contribute to the series, then I set up a PATREON page for myself over here. ^_^
