Oh, and here's the cover letter from Mr. Chatfield. Luckily, I took his advice.
Thank you gents! A nice way to end the week.
Back in 2009 I drew a custom tattoo for my mate and fellow comic artist Giles Kilham. (In fact, it was one of the first entries when I entered the world of blogging.) Keen readers will note that I promised to post pics of the actual tattoo. Only two years late, I present the process: sketch, inks and final art, to tattoo outlines, colouring, and the finished design. Please click for a closer look...

As the year draws to a close I sit here in my study, puffing at my pipe while roasting chestnuts on the open fire and contemplating the gently falling snowflakes that gather on my sill. My dog, Corkey, has brought me my slippers, and while they are now mangled and dripping in saliva, warm my feet after a long day trudging through the woods picking marshmallows.
Hark! A tug at my smoking jacket: the children, Miles and April, who are usually as quiet as mice, break their silence and ask my permission to play in the den. Ash and I laugh as the kids strangle each other, and we share a tender moment much resembling a Benny Hill Show scene.
Kidding aside, it's been a fantastic twelve months. Ash's tea room is going from strength to strength, the childerbeasts are growing up into lovely people, and I've had one of my best professional years ever - producing fun drawings for some brilliant clients, and all topped off with a couple of big awards in the US and here in Australia, of which I am very proud.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas, Chanukah, Festivus, or whatever you choose to celebrate. Stay safe and see you on the other side of the New Year.
Clients - I will be shutting shop on Friday 23rd December 2011 and reopening on Monday 9th January 2012. Thank you for your commissions and I look forward to creating more custom art for you in 2012.
Upon opening my mailbox today, I was very surprised to find not only my ugly mug on the cover of the Australian Cartoonists Association's Inkspot magazine (beautifully drawn by Luke Watson), but a nice print of the 'Boston Beardos' article art (superbly scribbled by Jason Chatfield) that's going straight to the pool room!..Read More
