I feel kind of nervous!

Here are the other two pictures that you can get in Brighton. Perhaps I will come home defeated with my tail between my legs (in which case you will be able to buy them off the website at a special, shame-face rate).




Wish me luck as I punch the sky on Friday! Air-planes are unnatural! My carbon footprint is huge!

I too am punching the sky on Friday. So I sympathize. Is Las Vegas a more desireable location than Brighton? 'Cause that's where I'm going. I heard it's a pretty bustling little town, full of pep and get-go.

is there anyw ay you could tell us what kind of tools you use now? like, what pens, etc?
i'm trying to find a pen that doesn't bleed too much and doesn't smear when i erase over it... i tried using a micron pen, but it dries out too quickly... fine tipped sharpies bleed too much... :(

You will do well, John. You will be admired from all around! The people will flock and flutter about you.
If it were not for the several time zones, different hemisphere and $3000 plane ticket (heh, you think your carbon footprint is bad - try living in the Antipodes!), I would be there too to be a part of the throng! Go Brighton!

HUUUUUUUUUUGS!

Bon voyage, you sterling man who can both illuminate and crush my hopes and dreams with a new Shelley hairstyle.

Laura said...

I shall be buying one! I won't eat for a week but I will have one!

Christophe said...

That's a fantastic Fallon.

Kitten said...

I am sulking because today's SGR is not the nice drawy-style you had recently adopted. I liked it.

Mind I still wish I could come to Brighton and buy a teatowel. I only live 1/2 hour from Manc; there should be webcomic event there.

alejandro said...

wow i loved your drawings; i'll start reading your weblog. I found your homepage through stumble!, in the Comic Books section.

I also have a website with my stuff; hope you'll visit it and tell me what you think about it.

bye

John A said...

Lovely site, great art and design Alejandro!

alice said...

i agree with kitten. i like the drawy style...

Suds said...

What happened to the drawing?!?!?

Christophe said...

Oh shoosh.

Both John's methods are in equal measure adapted to our strengths as to our weaknesses.

Andrew Dunn said...

It's a testament to how seamlessly the two styles fit together that I didn't even notice John had reverted back to his Illustrator one.

It looks spiffing no matter how it's drawn.

Tom Hardy said...

Agreed, Andrew. The John's command of Illustrator computerisations is very nice. I particularly like how he is trying to unite his drawn style with his computerised style in the latest two episodes.

hm - you're starting to handle the watercolour better - nice to see - still need to ensure a moist surface when laying down the background though...

Have you ever tied watercolour inks? not those crappy windsor & newton ones you can get, but the right proper deal - like dr martens? The W&N still have 'medium' - gooier than watercolour 'medium' - but dr martens are near pure colour - is lovely to use!
I think that art shop down near canal street does them in manc - the one by what's now primark did them, but they're gone now (boo!).

I've still got some from my old comic colouring days...
