Military Man

Work has commenced on the art for Walking Wounded #3.

One of the challenges of producing a war comic is capturing the correct martial flavour. This is pretty difficult for a peacenik like me who's only experience of the army is once having to write the following letter:

9th October 2004

Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Credit card application

Please find a completed agreement form enclosed.

You will note I have amended my title from “Col” to “Mr”. I wish to make it clear that I never knowingly described myself as a Colonel when completing the online application and that I ascribe the mistake to an error with the website.

Please would you amend your information at the earliest possible opportunity? I will not be able to accept any future correspondence to “Col Denton”.

Yours sincerely,

Chris Denton

The Colour of Money

So Steve's colouring work is edging closer to the mainstream.

He's done a four-page strip illustrated by PJ Holden for Phonogram. Here's the first 25%:


Steve's also been getting the figurative crayons out for PJ's contribution to Interagents, which is a US-based web comic. Check out the art as well as PJ's take on the above here.

If you need a colourist and, you know, fancy paying, check out Steve's colouring blog.

Back to the monkey well

Another simian from the Geocities archive this week:


The above is a collaboration between Steve and his university comrade James Harkins.

Massacre fact fans will be interested to know that James designed the Walking Wounded logo which graces the cover of Walking Wounded #2. We'll use it again for the new issue as it's damn fine.
