Black Boar Greetings one and all!

Just a fairly short one to let you know what's been on my drawing board recently...I've just finished a five page Hercules story for AccentUKs TWELVE (a great anthology title based on the 12 labours of Hercules). Also I have just completed a 'Victorian Terminator' commission, and what fun that was to do!:).

I'm about to start selling the odd thing on ebay. I have an original cover painting for SHJ#3 which I may put up soon. If you want original art, or even a commission PLEASE EM-MAIL and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you are a retailer I am thinking of selling BULK order (80 numbered SHJ~2 editions per box) box. Please email me for further details. Diamond could not fill their orders on Issue One, so jump the shipping order list NOW!!!!

Speaking of the sold-out SPRINGHEELED JACK #1 I have a few copies left, which I am selling along with an original painted sketch @£15 each. Signed and Numbered One to Ten only--- and then they are well and truly gone (in fact I purchased those issues back from a local comic shop who racked them in an obscure position)

anyway, that's about it for now,

talk again soon.

Hello again everyone!

Well, its been a while since I posted last, and what a time I've had! Lets begin with the Bristol Comic Festival, which was just about as busy as you can get. I was rushed off my feet, even with the extra help of my friend Graeme Neil Reid who hobbled all the way down to Bristol from Edinburgh, especially for the event! I spent virtually the whole two day event sketching SHJ, and various Marvel characters in victorian dress! Sold about 200 issues of SHJ#2 which was great news too. Things that had been on the cards for months all came to fruition at Bristol, I had two charity peices on sale--a Hellboy painting which sold for a healthy £145, this was also used in the 'Top Trumps' card pack, a Victorian stylee 'Constantine' for Ade Brown's 'Just1Page' charity magazine (he's just had an article on

Also out was the vampire mini 'Immortal' which sold out, and the second sketchbook (few left @£4.00 each), Whitechapel Freak COLOUR version with Bisley cover was out too---and it looked the dogs doo daas too, get your comic shop to order one when its listed in Previews later in the year;). Also had a little pirate story (no, this one was not about a midget seadog), merely it was 'little' as far as the page count--this appeared in PIRATES a great UK anthology title from AccentUK. I'm currently doing a short story for their next project '12'--about the twelve labours of Hercules.

Thanks to everyone who came to the Bristol show, and of course everyone who buys my comics, for their patience and understanding about the strange beast called 'self publishing'. I'm really pleased that my stuff is going down so well. Now all I've got to do is carry on doing it! Gotta get back and start that 'hand numbering' again--it was good idea at the time, but 420 into it I'm not so sure....;)

Signing off for now,
