I'm a real artist!

Been a bit quiet lately due to college deadlines, health reasons and Christmassy stuff, but let's cut to the chase and get back on track.

Here's a series of images I did recently based on the story of Pinocchio for a college project we're tackling at the moment, where we have to interpret one of three classic tales (Wizard of Oz, Little Red Riding Hood and Pinocchio), design three characters from it and illustrate two full pages based on original passages;


Pinocchio in a surreal and warped village, kinda drawing on Shaun Tan's stuff a bit here.


His father and creator Gipetto, complete with weird gadgets and a backpack thingamajig.

Aaaand finally, one of the two assasins (the fox and cat in disguise) that mug Pinocchio on his way back home.

Nothing much else to report, other than I might be drawing a script for a future Longstone Comics anthology if I have the time. 2D Derry comics festival dates have been announced too, hopefully might make it down for the first time this year.
Also, I bought a snazzy Sgt. Rock print by Brian Bolland, I'll post pics when it comes in the post.

Til next time...
