Thirsty, tea fans? This week, I bring you a delicious Cafe Suada cupdate AND a Halloween Challenge!

So I’ve got quite a few events coming up this month: LICAF is this weekend in Kendal, and London Comic Con is the following weekend, and then after that it’s Halloween! I’m also teaching a few workshops this month, I’m busy busy busy! So I thought, for a bit of fun, it would be nice to throw you guys a challenge!

There are currently 872 people with Cafe Suada on their Inkblazers bookshelf, and you are all lovely people, thank you for reading the comic. 

My challenge for you guys is to get that number up to 900!

Think you can pull it off? If you do before Halloween, I will do a special Cafe Suada Halloween illustration for you! How’s that sound? So get to sharing, reblogging, and spreading the comic to all your tea-loving friends - I’ll be waiting this Halloween to see if you can pull it off!

And don’t forget to check out this week’s webcomic cupdate on cafesuada.inkblazers.com!

Quick late night Syndrome doodle. He was such a great villain. Couldn’t decide between the mask or not, so I just posted both.

Also is anyone else incredibly (heh) excited for The Incredibles 2? Because I sure am.

Hey everyone, I’m going to be a guest at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival in a few weeks time on the 17th-19th October in Kendal. From 10am-12pm I’ll be teaching a Crafting a Story workshop in the Brewery Arts Centre, Art Room 1. If you’d like to take part, make sure to book your place! (Details in the above linked festival programme.)

The rest of the weekend during the day you’ll find me in the Comics Clocktower, on Table 3! In the evenings I’ll be flitting around the various festival events so if anyone wants to hang out, let me know! :D

Reminder that this event is coming up fast, so if you’d like to book places on my workshop (or any of the workshops) you better hurry up! Can’t wait to see you all in Kendal~!

I can’t be the only one who does this with their cintiq/drawing tablet glove…

Read this weeks brand new Cafe Suada webcomic cupdate by clicking the link above! I had too much fun drawing Gerry’s parents in this one.

Some test comic pages (for a pitch, it didn’t pan out sadly) featuring Hiccup, Astrid, Fishlegs, Ruffnut & Tuffnut and their respective dragons. Ruffnut and Tuffnut crack me up so much - I’ll probably end up doing more drawings of Ruffnut when the sequel comes out on bluray *_*

That’s all my HTTYD drawings for now though. Hope you enjoy them!

More How to Train your Dragon studies, trying out full colour. I think I had the most fun drawing the drunk/wobbly terrible terror haha.

Some How to Train your Dragon studies. I freaking ADORE this film. Every scene is my favourite scene. AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP. Hiccup and Toothless are so fun to draw.

New self portrait with my usual awkward smile, because I felt the other one was starting to age U_U
I like doing new ones relatively often (now that I think though, it’s already been 2 years!) because it ends up becoming a very easy way to see how I’ve progressed since the last one haha. Maybe by the time I decide to do another one I’ll have figured out how to draw my own nose. 100th time’s the charm…

Please do check out our comics, we work super hard on them!

Marie! Colour Tests. I’m really happy with how these have turned out at last - I’ve got a folder of hundreds of failed tests hahaha, but it was definitely worth all the tweaking and scrapping/restarting from scratch to figure out the palette for this book. What was interesting as well was trying to get schemes to work in both light and dark situations - it’s not as easy as figuring out flat schemes, because the saturation really jumps around when you start messing with lighting.

The colouring is a bit messy in places but hey, they’re tests ;D Would love to hear what you think!

When I design characters my desk tends to disappear under reference books etc haha. Also check out this bonus sketch from the sketchbook page in the photo - a character from Marie!. I’ll be posting some colour tests soon too! 

I did some pages for Richy K. Chandler and Zarina Liew’s new volume of Rosie and Jacinda, and Richy is rolling all of his new comics into one big launch night over at Gosh! comics. Fancy coming and hanging out for a bit with us? I don’t get out much but launch parties and the like are usually guaranteed to drag my lazy arse out to say hello ;D
