Off to the Birmingham Con tomorrow, looks to be a great line-up involved. Possibly the biggest Irish contingent at any convention I've ever attended, with Myself, Thompson, Lisa, Fran, Deckard, Will-I-Am, Bobert Byrne and PJ Holden heading over. Most've us are on the same flight to, so should have a few yuks. Have a couple of meetings with editors scheduled, mostly British cos the feckin dollarydoo exchange rate is murderin' me. Oh, got another new Angel gig too, I'll be providing alternate covers for the whole new series, yay! Still can't tell folks what other capacity I'll be involved in, but soon I reckon. Anyhoo, here's a few Dredd pages I just did, there should be more but this is all I had the time to finish. Its weird, I had a bundle of 2000AD stuff together for dredd-ref, but nearly every artist draws him quite differently. All the costume elements remain, but proportions and stylistic elements seem to be totally left up to the given artist. Which is cool. I wanted to go for a kinda Blade Runner type vibe with my version. Still can't figure out how the hell he steers that goddamn bike...
