I'm doing a bit of work with a fine publishing company based in New York's Flatiron building. I love this building so am fascinated by their location! Anyway, I'm afraid I'm using this as an excuse to post another Paris page. Hmm, and I guess I'm using that as an excuse to say that I sell these pages, so, should anyone be interested, do drop me a line for details (or perhaps to poke fun at my timing). Art size sometimes varies slightly but is approx. 21x31cms or a little less. It's Indian ink on cartridge paper. The above page is sold, incidentally.

2003's Graphic Classics: Ambrose Bierce has been recently revamped and re-released. It's a fine book. I drew this page for it. Being asked to do so kinda rekindled my passion for drawing comics after a period of concentrating on illustration, and I'm very glad it did. Right after this I drew a comic for a Subhumans CD and a story for Graphic Classics: Mark Twain and then started work on Paris, written by the blogging-again Andi Watson. Check out his recent sketches and upcoming projects!

A few of the sketches I drew whilst staying in Andalucía. Line alone can't do justice to the countryside because it's all about the colours - the terracotta soil, the silvery olive leaves and warm blue sky, but still. The same can be said for the nearby hilltop town of Frigiliana. What really appealed to me were its white-washed buildings and its greenery - draped from as many ledges and in as many pots as possible - but I guess I had to try drawing it to realise that.
