Sketchy Neighbourhood

Over at ACT-I-VATE, the current chapter of Mugwhump the Great wraps up this week... leaving just the final chapter to deal with once I catch up with everything else. Most of the story is just about in place in my head now, bar a few dangling things I need to loop back in somehow. Should keep me on my toes, however it happens. Also running there at the moment is a story I did with Jim Dougan, Machismo Monitor. A fun little thing from a couple of years ago.

Heaven help me, I'm actually going to be drawing today for the first time in a while. I'm getting used to the writing life, to the point where that white paper is feeling mighty intimidating sitting there on my drawing board. I'm doing the covers (they do two per issue - crazy!) to Muppet Show #8 - here are a couple of rough sketches I submitted, only one of which will be making its way on to an actual comic.

Which one will they actually be using? Aha! You'll just have to wait and see.


  1. so eh...what happens to these "rough sketches" after they choose one and you draw the real deal? Do they keep em, or do you bring them to HeroesCon to trade for slips of paper with numbers on em?

  2. Most of 'em sit in a teetering paper tower in my studio, threatening to fall over and smother a small child.

  3. I'm with Ade - definitely the second one!
