Derf Backderf - Trashed


I really liked the other Derf book I have read, 'My Friend Dahmer' so I bought thius one a couple of weeks ago. It's a fictionalised version of his time as a binman in the small American town where he grew up. It's really good. Even though he has fictionalised the stories they still feel very real, and he must have used a lot of real events. There's stories about picking up foul bags of rotten stuff, filled with maggots, working in the freezing winter, and his strange co-workers. They are cool and interesting. I wonder if they have wheelie bins now in America, I guess not in the small places.
There's also a bunch of stuff about where rubbish goes and landfill sites. I would have liked more of the stories instead of the factual stuff, but thats because it's all about rubbish in America and you can just think 'I bet it's not as bad here in the UK' and not have to think about it.
Here's Derf's blog, they are making a film of 'My Friend Dahmer' so he talks about that.

Decadence #11

I really enjoyed the new Decadence anthology, number 11.


It's a book length anthology of weird science-fiction comics. It's very good. I particularly liked 'Eclipse 2056' by Inechi, with its Starbucks sponsored lunar eclipse, and 'Modern Box' by Lala was cool too. There's a lot of very different drawing styles and ideas throughout the book. It's for sale here.

New Short Story


Here's the first row of panels of my new short story, 'What We Talk About When We Talk About Plinkity Plonky Plink'. Needs more pencils on these panels yet, I think.

Rejected Story

Here's the short story I drew the other week. It was rejected but I'm not surprised, I only found out about the anthology I submitted it to on the very last day, so I had to rush it. I was going to leave it, but than I had an idea so I thought it was worth seeing how it would turn out. I am drawing a new four page story for submitting to 'Dirty Rotten Comics' this week, it's much better.

Another Short Story

Here's a couple of panels from another short story I've drawn. I'm trying to draw stuff to submit to all the anthologies I can find. I think it's a good way to get drawing again. Later this week I'll start scanning and cleaning 'Flying Sausage Academy 4' and then I can send that to the printers.

I'm not going to any more comic shows this year so if you want to get hold of some of my comics the best way is to visit my website. Thanks!

Short Story


I've been drawing a six page short story, here's a few panels from it. As you can see it's all in colour. I've sent it off to an anthology. I like it, the colour has come out how I wanted.
