Halloween Faces - Batch #1

This week, I have drawn lots of monster faces to go on the wall at our local working man's club during their Halloween party on Saturday night (yes, ironically, even though I haven't done an honest day's work in years, I do belong to a working man's club).  I was only supposed to do a dozen of them but I got a bit carried away and ended up drawing nearer twenty.  I drew them all very quickly and they are not the greatest pieces of art I have ever produced, but I had fun doing them.  I am going to post most of them here over the next few days, accompanied by the text that I wrote to go with each (A4-sized) drawing...

Too Much Sex & Violence #1 / FPI Blog Review / Weekly Strip Update

Too Much Sex & Violence is a new comic written by Rol 'Pjang' Hirst and drawn by various artists, each contributing two to three pages.  The first issue is available now and features art by Andrew Cheverton, Paul Rainey, Kelvin Green, Nige Lowrey, Mark Renhard, Martin Eden, Adrian Bamforth, and me, with lettering, design, etc., by Davey Metcalfe-Carr.  I drew the last two pages to this issue and am about to start work on three particularly nasty pages for issue two.  Get your copy of TMS&V #1 from Rol now.  That's an order!

While I'm here, I would like to thank Richard Bruton for his generous review of Crisp Biscuit Comics #1, and most of my other comics, on the Forbidden Planet International Blog.  It was much appreciated and really made my day.

Oh, and my 'weekly' strip for this blog will be back starting next Monday.  I hadn't given up on it, I was just distracted by a couple of other projects.  There may not be a new strip every week, but I will do my best.  I will continue to call them 'weekly' strips, simply because 'weekly strip' sounds better than 'occasional strip'.
