Uploading early this weekend due to Sunday commitments.

This page is an odd one for a number of reasons; I somehow ended up landing a fart joke alongside a deeply unpleasant revelation about Burkhard.
Additionally, this is also the first fully digital page I’ve uploaded. I went with the change as I felt it hasn’t really affected the general style, rather just making the art sharper and speeding up production. I’ll be interested to hear other people’s thoughts on this mind…

It’s been a long time… Scratch that, it’s been a ridiculously long time, but I don’t really want to waffle about the details. Instead, I’d rather just get back to posting comic updates for Apothecary Supreme on a semi-regular basis.
In summary, I’ve been going through a professional transition which recently cumulated in me changing jobs from a fairly rote 9-to-5 over to a more flexible arrangement. The main positive of this is that I should have substantially more time to finish comic stuff and get more serious about this.
Fortunately, I do have a few pages ready which I worked on – slowly – and have held back until I could properly commit again. So here goes.
I’ve also transitioned to digital as my Wacom has quickly become a major part of my working life.
After much indecision I realised that using the tools at my disposal fully was the best way to speed things along without compromising results. More on this when I upload the transition page in question, hopefully it won’t be too jarring!
More next Sunday anyhow :)

As usual, I’ve got bits and pieces of near finished pages for Apothecary Supreme bumping around fighting for time with freelance, the day job and other mission critical stuff to sort out or my head will explode… Or something.
In the meantime, I figured I’d at least show where some of my time has been going by sharing these posters and illustrations I created for the Our Time Charity.
Besides the fact I’ve been working with the Our Time Charity quite a lot in recent months, they have a genuinely worthwhile goal helping young carers in the UK whose parents have a mental illness. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in supporting give them a look HERE: https://ourtime.org.uk/
Beyond that, I’m desperate to start pouring my time into Apothecary Supreme and other comic projects again, so it’s simply a matter of when I get to prepare a decent run of content again.

Lately I’ve been doing my pencil roughs digitally to speed things up and honestly there’s a temptation to embrace it completely. With the roughs I’ve found myself getting a little too neat, sliding into something more closely resembling a finished page than a loose draft (pictured below):
