Some character development for an ongoing project. Emo teenagers! Disgruntled mutts!

One of the dudes also has the best character description ever: 'an unpleasant Graham Norton'.

A homage to my local comics retailer, Megacity Comics!

It was fun playing with a more conventional, mainstream layout, while retaining the kinds of elements I like most in comics. Couple of rough design choices due to the speed at which it was produced, but there are also lots of experimental bits which I really like.

Was busy at the start of the year working on illustrating a couple of books for teenagers, based on Shakespeare stories. Just got a couple of advance copies of Romeo and Juliet in Las Vegas and Macbeth and the Creature from Hell in the mail - to celebrate, here are a few of the interior illustrations from the two books! It shouldn't tax your knowledge of the classics too hard to work out which characters are which. Trying to present such well known characters in a fresh and interesting way was actually a lot of fun. 70s flavour research also led me to such incredible finds as!

For more snippets you can check out Arena's blog post about them, or hunt down a copy once they are out!
