Fish at COMICA

My drawing from the COMICA "Comiket" event at the ICA last week:
"As far as I know there is no situation in Afghanistan currently requiring my attentions"


Each participant was given a quote from a famous British Graphic Novel, and asked to illustrate a picture to fit said quote.

Dr Who: Room with a Deja (re)View


Rich Johnston was kind enough to offer an advance read of his new comic, in exchange for a review. So, here goes!

IDW's Doctor Who: Room with a Deja View is an impressive DW Debut from Rich. It's clear in its influences - Moore's Reversible Man, and the Two Ronnies have utilised the gimmick employed here, but its a quirk most suited to this title in particular, and it is used well when necessary, and suits this format especially. The 10th Doctor is portrayed well, recognisably in character (without becoming annoying). The designs for this issue, by artist 'Eric J' are reminiscent of Ridgeway's run on the comic, as are the supporting cast, not a bad thing. One or two wonky photo-refs do not detract from mostly excellent likenesses throughout. I give it a solid 8/10. You'll want to read it at least twice!

Disco Inferno




This little fella's been knocking around for a while now. When not being a 'futuristic' (i.e. Made-Up) Fire Truck, he like to dance to the latest disco beats, especially now he's sporting these stylish Flare-like legs.

Flippin' 'Eck its a Tiny Comic!

This was done down the pub at a LUC get-together a while back...

Apologies for the out-of focus shot and general incoherence...

The Moons a Balloon


Over at the 'Down The Tubes' website, John Freeman is amassing a series of Moon-landing inspired pieces, including one by me...

David Niven's classic autobiography obviously inspired the name for this one.

For the completists out there, here's my initial sketch:

Addicted to Lego

I'm kind of addicted to Lego. If there's a pile of it on a floor near me, I have to build something out of it. Luckily, the 7-year-olds in my life have quite a few bricks between them, so I get to indulge my habit often.

I've been loving some of the vintage-inspired stuff that appears at brothers-brick.com fairly regularly. So, imagine the thrills when I saw this 1986 vintage lego box set #6926 at a charity shop for just £1!



Unfortunately, the set was incomplete, so I had to improvise (tried to stick close to the spirit of the original though):

Happy Birthday Ma

Many happy returns to me dear ol' Ma!

Here's an excerpt from a future installment of lifeofreg.blogspot.com:

One night Win woke me to say she was very wet, the bed was soaking - it could only mean one thing. I went out to the telephone box to order a taxi. On arrival the driver wasn’t too happy about taking Win to the hospital in her condition. The little bag had been ready for some weeks, so off we went to the Salvation Army Hospital at Clapton. Win was taken straight in to the labour ward and Chris and I stayed in the waiting room for a hour or two, then were told to go home and come back next day. It was now early morning and trolley buses were about, so we were able to get home. I visited next day but was told Win was still in the labour ward. Some thirty six hours after going in, a baby girl arrived. We had discussed names but I did not know which one Win was going to choose, so on the first visit after the birth, baby Kathleen was in a cot next to Win.
