Ri Ra Issue 3


I just found out that Ri Ra Issue 3 is going ahead and myself and John Cullen are going to be working on a three page strip for that issue. Ri Ra is the comic that first published us and also helped us get our Eagle Award nominations so it's great to see it going from strength to strength. There are still some issues of Ri Ra Issue 1 and 2 available on their website if anyone wants to pick them up the link for that is here. The comic has gathered some of the most talented people working in Irish comic today and with your support it will keep doing so.

Here are some sketches from John for the story 'Once upon a time'

HomeLand Pages

I have some more art from HomeLand for people to check out. I'm very pleased with what Dwayne has come up with so far these look great.

This is the first page of the comic it's not completely finished yet.

Here is page two SHEP fighting one of the lizard creatures. Like I said these are just early roughs but I'm very happy with the way this comic is coming long.

Home Land Sketches

Two posts in a week that must be new record for me. I just thought I'd put up some of these sketches I received during the week for a pitch I'm putting together with the very talented Dwayne Moloney for a comic called Home Land.

It is the story of a human colony that gets hit by a natural disaster and is forced to fend for itself. These are just some very early sketches but I think they look excellent so I thought I'd put em up here to see what people thought of them. We don't have a publisher for this one yet that's gonna be the next thing we have to get working on.

This is the first sketch for Home Land itself and one of the creatures that inhabit this now hostile world. Also the armor for the militia.

Here is the design for one of the characters called SHEP and a sketch for one of the vehicles that the colonists use.

Also here is a link for Dwayne's deviant art page for you to check out.

Eagle Awards and Zarjaz


It has been a while but I have been busy. It is that time of year again the Eagle Awards are upon us again. Last year was fantastic for Ri Ra it managed to get two nominations and we want to try and go for it again. We want to get Ri Ra nominated for Favourite New Comic Book and Favourite European Comic Book. If any one wants to help us get there again that would be excellent. The link for that is here.

I do have some more news. I am working on a Judge Dredd story for that excellent comic Zarjaz. I grew up reading Dredd so it's pretty cool to get the chance to create a story for him. That won't be out for a while yet but once I know more I'll post something up here. The link for the Zarjaz blog is here if anyone wants to check that out.
