The Return of Horrible

I haven't posted any Horrible Histories stuff in a while. Here are some illustrations I did for... was it the 'Orrible Ottomans or something? ... I'm drawing a blank, I'm afraid. Anyway, here you go.

Trying to knock the Art d'Ecco book into shape. The new story is finished; now I'm trying to get the old stuff up to scratch -- fixing corrupted Letratone on the computer, getting the dimensions right, all that. And redrawing a page or two if I have time. And figuring out what order to put it all in. And culling a bit of stuff to bring the page count down to 160 pages. I thought I'd be pushing it to get 160 pages together, but there are a couple of dozen I'll have to leave out in the end. (Just as well, they're shite...)


  1. Roger - did you say that Art D'Ecco would be out for San Diego, or some time later this year? The ol' memory is going...

  2. My fault - I said both at different times. It was originally going to be out in November, but Fantagraphics bumped it forward so that it would be ready for San Diego (assuming I turn the thing in on time). Which is fine; I'm going there as a guest this year, so it will be nice to have a book out at the same time.


The spam filter is back on because it just goes berserk if I switch it off. Sorry - I'll get to your comments ASAP!
