Hot as Hell...


This is a sketch book drawing, done while tinkering with a laptop, syncing files. I am not using my big monitor and computer at the moment because of the amount of Thunder Bugs in the air today. After the heartache of my lovely shiny 24inch monitor getting a tiny pest trapped inside the screen last year I am trying to avoid attracting the little blighters. Yes, the bug is now dead and fossilised between the plastic monitor layers (and in death, resembles an apostrophe on screen) this may not seem like a big deal but when you use a monitor for graphics, artwork and proof reading it can become irritating. PC repair shops are not set up for dismantling modern screens on monitors, so they tell me.

Lost and Found Finally


Meanwhile, back over on my dream Blog I have posted three pages of comic artwork. The idea came from a dream I had a few months back. Like a dream it seemed really powerful but now with time in-between it seems to have faded. I think the next ones will have to be more immediate, black and white with an ink wash. The colour looks great but is another element that gets in the way of telling the story.

(Funny thing is a few weeks ago my friend Justin had mentioned visiting an amazing place called Santiago, in Spain and a quick Google visual search reveals it to be similar like the place I saw in my dream. Coincidence, or... Guidance?
