MCM Manchester 2018 Over!

July 30, 2018

Had a great time at MCM Manchester over the weekend! My heartfelt thanks to anyone who stopped by my humble stall, bought a comic or just stuck around for nerd chatter. All of you guys made it worthwhile =)

Falling back into a backlog of tasks I put on hold, but I’ve got more updates ready to go; just need a moment to finalise them!


Apothecary Supreme Issue 2, Page 9 – Naughty Thoughts

July 23, 2018

Really hate starting up cold like this after a long break – hello empty room! – but life sometimes takes over.

I’ve been off in freelancing land for two months – besides the day job – and one way or another I had no time to work on Apothecary Supreme. For the most part it’s been lunchtime sketches just to keep in practice. Frustrating, but thanks to a lack of bank, necessary :(

On the brightside this one’s been done for a while so I figured I’d just go ahead and post it with another to follow soon. Sorry as always guys, I’ll do better in future!

Shock horror!… It’s the most normal person in the village!

First use of tone for a page rather than pure B&W here. Hatching can only convey so much I find and the matter of ethnicity becomes something of a plot point.

It frankly does make me wonder if it would be worth toning everything, but I worry it would ultimately be another time sink. I could see myself getting too precious over making it look right and it would probably pile on extra days between releases. To say nothing of being a further departure from Apothecary Supreme’s original style.

Burkhard meets the locals :D

Starting to feel I’ve been going a bit overkill on these interiors; on the one hand I enjoy creating a strong sense of place, however I worry it’s slowing things down for the sake of details no-one really notices… Anyhow! More next Sunday!

A  longer break in uploads than I would have liked (no surprises).

The good news is that through my offline fumblings I have somehow built up a few more pages to share and will be back on the regular Sunday uploads… for a while.

I’ve been missing Burkhard’s stuck up goofiness, so at the very least it’s good to have him back on the page! Plus, more creepy strangers!
