Win Some, Lose Some

And so September draws to an end, and I have only managed to complete four out of five pages for this month.

Yet I am not disheartened, for there is good reason for my slowness! I have been taking my time with my newest project, as there would seem to be a good chance of getting it published. I am currently three pages through a script by Matthew Mclaughlin, and a damned fine script it is too! As we intend to see it in print, I can't show you the work so far, but here are some sketches that may whet the apatite.

"But wait!" I hear you cry, in a largely figurative sense. "If you are only three pages into that story, then where does your fourth page come in?"

Well, that would be a page that I drew for my wonderful ladyfriend, and it is one that I can reveal to the world. I have brutally disfigured the piece by attempting a fat fisted attempt at lettering. If any letterers read this, I'm sorry, I'm so, so sorry.

This jolly sequence is entitled Megatron Builds A Fort

In other news, the 2000ad forum has led to a vast expansion in the numbers of those following this blog! Hi all, some of you I have followed back, others I haven't yet due to not quite being able to work the computer properly. Some people have links in their little pictures, others do not, and it is taking me a while to get my head round the crazy variation. Please forgive my faltering steps at using this new Blogger contraption, I am awfully slow with such things.


  1. I can vouch for you, Louis - your work on our strip is fantastic!

    And that's a funny one-page, but what a strangely sparse style you went with. I'm not used to you not filling a panel to the max!

  2. Well, I did this in one night while watching the telly, but the details are there! Particular fan pleasers that have been noted by my ladyfriend and associates are Megatron's phone cord twiddling fingers, his Optimus Prime bed sheets, and the fact that Starscream's pillow has a picture of Transformers Animated Starscream.

    It is the little things that please the fans.
