Back to Making Ice Cream

I'm back to making and selling ice cream now after the very quiet months of January and February. I'll be busy next month with a lot of markets so I guess I'll slow down a bit with my drawing.

Part three of 'California' will come out on March 1st and then the fourth and final part will come out about the 1st of April, hopefully...

Page Nineteen of 'California 3'

Here's half of page nineteen of 'California 3'. I'm on page 23 now. I'll finish it soon and bring it out on the 1st of March. I'll do a part four to finish the story so it's not rushed at the end.

Robert Brown - Killjoy #1

I really liked Robert Brown's comic 'Killjoy #1'. Its a story from his childhood where he goes on a boy scouts camp in the woods. It's his first experience of camping and the longest time he had spent away from his family. The scouts go absailing and make bivouacs out of bits of wood. It's really understated which I like, upsetting things happen and he's confused and worried, it seems really true to childhood memories to me. The drawing is great too, a bit like Craig Thompson but not too similar. Here's a link to his website.

Rabbie Burns

I've just found out that I could have put Robert Burns in my comic, 'The Storytellers'. He was a customs man on the Solway Firth around the same time that these smuggling scenes take place. I could have drawn him on the shore, looking for ships, and trying to think of a rhyme for haggis.

It's probably for the best I didn't put him in the story as he's not mentioned in any of the legends and I have tried to be as truthful as possible.
