Should be at Thought Bubble this week selling freshly printed Hitsville UK comics, but sadly I am not for there are no freshly printed Hitsville UK comics. What with computers self-destructing, moving house and the reduction of hours in the day to a measly 24, the birth of our full-colour, 36-page baby bastard has been somewhat delayed.

To prove I have done some work here's a sneak preview of two new pages, showing the Dreadnoughts going about the daily grind, and then moonstomping it all out on stage.

The finished article will be with you soon. Tell your friends and watch this space!

I'm exhibiting promo postcards from Hitsville UK's roster of acts at Send Me A Postcard Darling.
It's an exhibition of postcard-sized art, curated by my good friends Laura and James, and it looks like they've collated a really eclectic range of artists and work.

It's at the Red Gate Gallery, 209a Coldharbour Lane, London SW9 8RU from 22 to 28 October 2010 and the private view is this Friday 22nd from 6 til 11, and you're all invited unless you're Jeremy Hunt.

Here's a sneak preview of the work I'll be showing.

New Stool Pigeon is up on t'interweb so here's the complete fourth Gollum. I've been really mean to him this time, and sorry Mum for being grim.

Now go and read SP, particularly Charlie Parker, Handyman. which is possibly the best yet...

Yikes, it's been a busy month of catastrophic computer failure and moving flats.

A couple of new comics.

First, the latest instalment of Gollum's miserable life for the redesigned Stool Pigeon. Seek it out, hipsters.

Secondly, my adaptation of the Magnetic Fields song Love Is Like Jazz, over on Julia's magnificent 69 Love Songs blog.

Gollum amongst the pigeons

New Stool Pigeon is out, featuring everyone's favourite Northamptonshire wizard. More fine comics in the middle and we got another nice plug from Forbidden Planet blog. Go find yerself a copy.

The comics section of The Stool Pigeon (including yours truly) just got a nice review on the FP blog.

The new Stool Pigeon is out about now, I believe, featuring more Gollum & Johnny Cash, and an interview with the beardy wizard Alan Moore. Hurrah, comics rule!

I've just done a picture for Martin Eden's JAPANDEX project (detail left).

Martin's the author of the comic Spandex, about a team of gay superheroes based in (obviously) Brighton. It's great, witty, poptastic stuff and you should really buy both copies available so far.

Because issue 2 was set in Japan, Martin has been running JAPANDEX, giving other comics artists and illustrators the chance to do Spandex-inspired pictures riffing off icons of Japanese and Eastern culture. Mine shows the team battling issue 2's Pink Ninjas, with a respectful tipping of the hat to the much copied, never beaten master, Hokusai.

You can see the complete picture here

Thanks Martin!

You can read Hitsville UK issue 1 online here.

Still, it's not quite the same as owning your own copy, is it? Eh? Eh?

I've got a shop! I've got a shop! Roody schoody boody shop shop shop!

Oh go on, I'm skint. 

My liver and I had a blast at the Bristol Comics Con at the weekend, where Hitsville went down well amongst the creators whose baffled hands we forced it into. Big props to the legendary Shaky Kane who insisted on paying us the three quid for our efforts.

Thanks to the Underfire crew who allowed me to loiter on their stall. Here's a picture of some of them, including my collaborator Dan. Note copies of Hitsville UK bottom right.

Fresh from the printer, get 'em while they're hot. Twelve pages of full-colour pop art depravity by me and the outrageously talented Dan Cox. £3 plus p&p to you, Sir or Madam.  Drop me a line if you want one...

GOLLUM and Johnny

Issue 26 of The Stool Pigeon has been out for a few weeks, and the second of my Gollum strips is in it, nestled amongst some other other lovely comic strips (my fave is Charley Parker).

Pick up a copy, or if you don't live near a thrustingly cool music venue or shop, go read it here:

First two pics are for Nobrow's Flickr competition, People I have never met and Conversations I have never had. I have never met this Mayan God-King and this is the conversation that I have never had with him. Lots more brilliant entries (and winners) to be found on the Flickr page here

Next is my entry to Little White Lies' competition to adapt your favourite film into a six-panel comic strip. I went for the Coen bros' brilliant Barton Fink

Gollum in the Stool Pigeon

Just got my copy of The Stool Pigeon, featuring hopefully the first of a series of Gollum strips. There are some other lovely comics in there (including my favourite, Charlie Parker, Handyman) so go pick up your own copy from one of these fine venues.

Must remember to put my name on the strip somewhere next time. Doh!

I wanted to put together the best of the weird characters who end up on the Little Philistines flyers. Here's how it turned out...

Sneak preview of Gollum strip, shortly to appear in the comics section of The Stool Pigeon. Should be out Feb 8th I believe.

Quick sketch - my face ended up bigger than my eyes needed, but I quite liked the way this turned out anyway.

A belated greeting to 2010. At the moment I am back doing what makes me happy, namely drawing pictures of Gollum playing the guitar. This is for a one-pager that should see the light of day soon in the marvellous Stool Pigeon

In the meantime here are some sketches of the lovely Sally Kent.
