Details Are Sketchy

Hey sports fans,
Here are a couple of recent Angel related sketches. I recently worked on a run of alternate covers for the current Angel series. The concepts for these covers were chosen by members of the fansite(hell of a site). Each month Slayalive ran a contest to see who could conjure up the best cover concepts, with the winning concept being voted on by the members of the site. I'd then get sent the winning concept and try to do it justice through artistic execution(I assume whenever I eventually croke it'll be as a result of artistic execution...). Some of the concepts were really strong, and we produced some pretty decent covers between us. Anyhoo, the winners of the each cover competition were supposed to have their names immortalised in the artwork of the covers themselves. Through circumstances beyond anybody's control, a few of the winners' names got left out of their respective covers. So I tried to make it up to them by offering to draw an original sketch for each slighted person. Here are two of these sketches as requested by Erin Waggoner(Willow) and Alan Mulqueen(Illyria).

Done and...Dusted?

Hey. Finished up the art on my last issue of Angel: After The Fall last week and the feeling is bittersweet. This is a book that I'd been dying to get onto for ages, and now that my part has ended I miss it already. Wait'll you guys read issues 13 and 14, holy-moley. The sucktacular thing is that I'd had the inside scoop, I'd been privy to the the inner workings of 2 madmen, Brian Lynch and Joss Whedon, and now they've stopped sending me the scripts and I've no fricking idea what happens in the final arc! Aaargh.
Still, I'm incredibly grateful to Chris and Brian for giving me a shot at one of my dream projects, I had the best time.
So what's next? Well lets just say myself and Brian's collaborations are only just beginning, the book coming next from us...
Well, it's bad-ass.
