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…

Fanart of :Cafe suada by jade sarson teahermitcomics

Please do check out her stuff!

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK this caught me by surprise on my dashboard holy crap Naniiebim their expressions are freaking SPOT ON *U* Thank you so much!

Naniiebim for those of you who might not know is the amazing artist behind the Mephistos webcomic, available to read now over on Inkblazers! I did a few guest pages for Mephistos for the Webcomic Artist Swap Project a couple years ago, so it’s really nice to see her take on my characters here. Please do check out our comics, we work super hard on them!

MEPHISTOS       CAFE SUADA

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

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

Marie is a girl with the gift of understanding, who is often misunderstood.
I guess now is as good a time as any to announce that it&#8217;s official: My graphic novel For the Love of God, Marie! is being published by Myriad Editions in 2016. I signed the contract last week, the script is done, now I just gotta get to work on the pages!
This is not the final artwork but it&#8217;s pretty close: I&#8217;m going to be doing the whole book in limited colour palettes so it&#8217;ll look a little different in the end. I&#8217;ll be posting updates on each stage and previews of the art over the next year or so here on my site so I hope you all look forward to seeing Marie! come to life, slowly but surely.
I&#8217;m also putting together a mailing list for info about the book; if I don&#8217;t already have your email and you&#8217;re interested in news about the eventual publication date, pre-orders, launch party etc, please send me your email info! You can comment on this post or send me an email at teahermit@hotmail.co.uk.
Thanks everyone who has already offered their congratulations/well dones/dude that&#8217;s awesomes on this fantastic news. I really appreciate how much you&#8217;re all looking forward to my first full length graphic novel, and I&#8217;ll do my best to make it a really enjoyable book!

What a fun weekend at Comica Comiket. I met so many wonderful and talented people! Thanks to Paul Gravett for inviting me to take part in the drawing parade on Saturday and the New Voices talk on Sunday. I’m really excited to work hard on Marie! now, thanks to hearing so many supportive comments about my work. Big wave to my table mates Hannah Berry, Gareth Brookes, Darryl Cunningham and Ian Williams, you were all great fun to hang out with.

I was pretty happy with the illo I got half done in my half hour stint so I grabbed a photo. Also that last photo in the set was taken right after Paul said “Look, there’s your editor in the front row! DON’T SAY ANYTHING BAD~” Pfffffffff.

Huge thanks for the photos go to Dean Simons and Richy K. Chandler.
