Monster Kids meet Hellboy & the BPRD

It's Dark Horse Day and time to remember when the Monster Kids met Hellboy.

And a little reminder that...

The complete Monster Kids story 'Show & Yell' is now available to buy for only £6.99 from Follow the little creatures as they try to find the perfect thing for Show 'n' Tell told in 7 fiendishly funny digital comic strips for less than £1 each. No subscription needed.

Dark Horse Day

I love Dark Horse Comics... congrats on 30 years.

RIP Darwyn Cooke

I have 4 folders on my computer where I save particularly striking pieces of comic art, the folders are named 'A TOTH', 'D COOKE', 'MIGNOLA'  and 'The Rest'. Here are some of my favourite pieces of Darwyn Cooke's work that I have collected over the years.

The art has now halted but Darwyn Cooke work will continue to represent the heights that comics can reach.

Shadow Rider Comic Cover

The SCC was contacted about a young comic fan who was having a bit of a hard time and needed cheering up. He enjoyed creating his own characters and we were asked to draw some of them.

Here are his original character sketches.

And here's my pencils, inks, colors and final cover again.

Huge tip of the hat to Nate Piekos at Blambot fonts for creating and allowing free use of so many incredible fonts.
