Mirror Mirror

Mirror Mirror first appeared in the 2014 edition of Hallowscream and was one of the first ever comics to make use of the Electricomics generator. Drawn by Carol Kewley, this is an experimental story that uses an unusual layout to help tell its tale.

It's quite a subtle trick so look closely.


As per the title and theme of the story, the images within are a reverse reflection of each other. eg the first panel is the same layout as the last panel, the 2nd panel is a reflection of the 15th, 3rd is the  14th, and so on...

This is me being a smart arse. I thank you.


Current Project Progress Update:

I'm still working on several stories, which I promise I'll have ready to upload soon. Apologies for the delay but it really does take a ridiculously long time to draw things.

Doodlings

Late last year I attempted to partake in something called Inktober, a fun little project which involves creating one piece of inked artwork for each day of the month. Needless to say, I didn't complete the full month, only managing a meagre 4 days. No surprise there.

In order to keep the content flowing on this blog, I though I'd share a couple with you, while I'm creating some more serious comic strips, which I'll be posting very soon. Enjoy.

Fuzzy

I'd love to post more but as I'm now trying to draw some comic strips it turns out doing so is a reallllly lengthy process! It goes:

Write > Edit > Rewrite > Edit > Rewrite > Initial character sketches > Rough page layout > Full page layout > Pencil sketches > Refine pencil sketches > Scan > Ink (digital) > Flat colours > Full colour > Letter & Logo > Finish

At last! A solid excuse for why it's taking so long to get content up. :)

So, in the mean time, here's some filler in the form of Fuzzy.

Fuzzy is a comic character I created back when I was between 7-10 years old (that's a guess really as I've no idea but it sounds about right). I used to draw short stories about Fuzzy and his adventures. I suppose you could say this was my first comic strip.



This framed picture hangs on the wall, above the TV, in my Mum's house. Yep, she pretty much idolises anything I do and is a massive hoarder. (That's hoarDER! Don't go disrespecting my Mother, yo.)
