Have not drawn starling in almost two years and yet she was prob on eof the characters I had designed for The Wren.
Jack's mother, a fallen Hero.
Time flys whn your having fun :)
Plot meeting yesturday and great plans afoot for 2011!
I think the greatest feedback recently has been children's love of the Wren. Thats one of the reasons I had started this comic in the first place as an all ages Irish Superhero comic did not exist. Thanks to the guineapig kids who I gave copies to and awaited feedback . It was good.........phew!

Issue 5 Nov 19th and then well earned holiday to NY !!

Messing about with a sketch of Amerg for someone who will be drawing cover for issue five! (top secret for now) :) quite excited as it is great to have people to work with !
Great thing about this villian is his costume is not set in stone yet so can have him wearing many bits and pieces as he is absorbing magical essence from them.
His final costume I might keep the breast plate part of, not sure yet

Sunday, August 22, 2010

ok thats that icth scratched altough could have spent longer but happy enough as I have never drawn this Epic character brfore :)
Working on issue 5 of Wren so had to get back to high adventures in Stephens green

Plot ideas popping braincells again and so creative meeting looms with my co-horts

Saturday, April 24, 2010

Really should be wrking on Wren but did also get a page pencilled but also two episodes of Lost to catch up on, Dr Who on tis evening and dinner guests so why am I even on here !? ChoW lol

Monday, April 12, 2010

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

Decided to add a bit of Magic to my rainy day, quick ink of Zantanna before couch, munchies and movie

Friday, April 2, 2010

OK so day off and loads to do. too zonked and so opted for drawing Blurr instead. My first time drawing an actual Transformer but I have to say its fun , even if it did turn out not so great, better luck next time :)

Saturday, March 20, 2010

This was sooooo much fun to do. When I was a kid my big Brother was my introduction to world of Marvel/Dc and everything fantastic. He would create comic books, costumes and and even turned a room into the millenium Falcon, but thats another story :)
Any ho the "BlueFlame "was his creation and it has always stuck with me as a Hero from when I couldn't reach the table. Now I can and so slightly retcon him but just renewed my love for him and hope at some stage to use him in the Wren !
Cheers Bro!

Sunday, March 7, 2010

Had to mess about with the big "H" as I had not drawn the big guy in awhile but happy enough with how it turned out :)

Sunday, February 14, 2010

well didn't get far with second last page as I ended up drawing Thor, why? if I knew the answer I would tell you lol

Sunday, February 7, 2010

well Amerg is turning out to be a better villian of the piece than I had earlier planned but thats great! I think Villians should be not just there for the hero to hit . He's wicked, through and through !

Saturday, January 2, 2010

Well Thursday 7th is the day I will actually put issue 1 on sale! It seems weird as I am on issue 3 and so presume people have seen first issue but because we have been working through the story, you kinda forget nobody has seen the first issue lol
Print run is small as it is done out of pure enjoyment. It won't change the world but it did for us as we are taking a crack at what we love, comic books!! :)
