SkinnyElbows Website Update

Back from Bristol Comic Expo - what a great chance to meet new people and, PHEW! what a scorcher, as they say!

So, I've had a load of stuff come out in the last month or so, so I've updated my website,, with over 20, yes, I said 20! new images.

Here's a few samples:

Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor Who.
Manga Studio and Photoshop

Cover to 2000AD Prog 1673 "Crimes of Passion"

"Path of the Warrior" by Gav Thorpe

Also, I've got a whole bunch of other stuff I'll blog about very soon...!

Bristol International Comics Expo 2010

Okay, there's a lot going on right now. We're moving house, there are degree student projects to grade and I've got loads of work on - let the good times roll!

A quick post to say I'll be a guest at the Bristol Comic Expo next weekend (22nd to 23rd May) - alongside the likes of Chris Claremont (wow!), Pat Mills (woah!), Clint Langley (cool!), Al Ewing(sweet!) and a bucketload of comics talent from all over the world (skills!)

Only 3 years ago I attended my first 'Con with portfolio in hand, only to be given some harsh but sage advice from various pro's.

Now, here I am, on the other side of the fence - it's amazing what hard work and determination can do.

Should be good - look forward to seeing you there.

Star Wars: convergence theory

Just saw this lovely image for the brand new 'Star Wars:Force Unleashed 2' game:

Starkiller at the crossroads.
TM Lucasarts, 2010

Can't help but looking a little familiar:

Luke Skywalker at the crossroads.
Neil Roberts portfolio piece, 2009.

Obviously I don't have copyright on a pose, Lucasfilm IP and certainly no right to point out that the two bear a striking resemblance to each other, but still...
