Eclectic Micks Volume 2 Sketchbook launch

I'll be signing at the launch of the new Eclectic Micks sketchbook this coming Friday, at Forbidden Planet Dublin from 5-7pm(weather permitting! Lotta snow round these parts). Please drop in to say hi to myself and the other Micks in attendance(Dec Shalvey and Will Sliney so far), and maybe pick up a copy of the new book. Each one comes with a headsketch of a character of your choice, ala Watcher-Wesley here done for an Angel fan at the NYC con in october.

Willow and Spike

So it's been revealed that I'll be joining ├║ber-scribe Brian Lynch on the second half of his new Spike series, and believe me, the script I've read so far is brilliant. A certain guest-star appears(Willow!) and she is so very mired in-character, it's a joy to behold. This is the Willow we know and love. I'm only a few pages into my first issue(5), and already I'm having a ball.
I'm taking over from the amazing Franco Urru for a few issues, as he's had to duck out for personal reasons. I'm sure he'll be back soon though, as you can only keep a man like that out of the game for so long!
This isn't the only project I've been working on for our editor, Mariah Huehner(this lady knows her stuff, class act all the way). Keep your eyes peeled for some other Angelverse artwork at some point soon...

Great to be back.

Angel

This is a cover I contributed to an upcoming issue of Angel. Didn't realise how much I missed working on the character until I drew the big lug once again.
I've been out of the Angelverse for too long.... lets see about rectifying that.

The Micks will have a table at next weekends NYCC, number R-12 in artists' alley. Please do drop by and say hi. Myself, Dec, Will and Len will be there representin' the auld country. We'll be hawking the new Eclectic Micks sketchbook, and also will have a very limited quantity of the first volume with us.  They're both super-aces.
Can't wait to get over there, always a blast and a half. Join us, won't you?

Here's a Shadow piece that i drew as part of an art swap at the con with Angelic Nick Runge. He's good people.

Moonstone Process

Here's the pencils and inks for the piece I did for this week's blog post over on the Eclectic Micks site, Moonstone of the Thunderbolts. You can see where I fixed/tightened up a lot of aspects in the inks, and then in the colours.

Making My Mark

Some recent sketches from the Eclectic Micks blog, done with copic design markers. Love working with them, as they give a lovely consistent colour, blend well and have brush tips with just the right amount of resistance. These pieces are a lotta fun to do.

Anatomy of a Murder

Thought I'd stick up a step-by-step of this week's Eclectic Micks piece for those who are interested.
So here are the penciled, inked and coloured versions of the tetchy little Canadian furball. Of death.

The A-Team: Shotgun Wedding

This week sees the launch of the first issue of the new A-Team book I've just finished working on. This one's gauranteed to be on time, since the last issue in the series was coloured and lettered before the first one even hit! I really reccommend this book to action-adventure fans and folks who used to love the show. It retains everything that was great about the eighties version and adds just the right amount of contemporary spice to really set things off. This book is set around the same time as the upcoming movie, and is literally a globe-spanning adventure.

Written by uber-scribes Tom Waltz and Joe Carnahan, and drawn by yours truly.
Do pick it up, won't you?

A-Team Preview Pages



Saw these preview pages from A-Team one elsewhere on the web, so should be cool to show them here too.
Hannibal and B.A. on a mission somewhere... cold.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire... Mooney.

I've been working on a new A-Team book for IDW for the last few weeks, and it's been an absolute blast. Plenty of action and adventure in the old-skool mold.
The book features the new version of the team that'll be appearing in cinemas everywhere later in the new year, and I think they've done a dynamite job casting-wise. I was and remain a huge fan of the original show, and once again comics affords me the chance to play in a sandbox that most don't get near.
Look for issue 1 of The A-Team in march, as written by Joe Carnahan and Tom Waltz.

Happy New Year!
