This is the print I had done for the MCM show, I think it looks pretty cool!

By the way, I thought it was good to see a healthy amount of kids at the Bristol show this past weekend, it's what the industry needs more than anything in my opinion.

Hey there everyone!

I see another couple of blog followers have joined the list, welcome to the world of Marineman!

So the Bristol Comic Expo has been and gone again - A great show as always.

Thanks to those who turned up at the booth! The Marineman booth was a fledgling booth but everyone has to start somewhere, eh? I had a constant stream of people waiting for sketches to keep me on my toes ( Only one Marineman request though - hope that soon begins to change....!) and two panels to sit in on. One alongside my fellow Image comics creators at the Image panel and the other at the Elephantmen panel both of which were mediated by my 'grate' mate, Richard Starkings.

Speaking of which, Richard took oodles of snaps which I shall be posting at the beginning of next week.

I am also a last minute addition to the guest list at the London MCM show this weekend coming where I'll once again be alongside the Elephantment booth, so if you can make it along then please do. I'll have some new Marineman prints with me too.

For anyone who missed the Bristol show, here's what the Marineman show banner looks like...

More posts soon...

Hi to the two followers of the Marineman blog! Thanks for the interest!

The Issue of Elephantmen featuring the Marineman five page preview is issue 25, available now from all good comic book retailers. Marineman aside, it's a cool issue made up entirely of splash pages and a jolly good read.

Apologies for the lack of recent posts but I've been busy prepping for the Bristol convention which is this coming weekend, I'll look forward to seeing anyone who drops by the booth!

Issue two is almost drawn now and issue one is still in the coloring stage, it's the flatting that takes so long...

I should have issue two done before the weekend so after Bristol I'll be getting underway on issue three - Hurrah!

I intend to try and be a bit more regular with the blog and if I don't have time to write then I'll start posting Marineman sketches and thumbnails from my archives.

Here's a pin up that's going in the Image San Diego Comic Con special.

More soon, promise!
