Jack Kirby, creator of the Marvel Universe and long-term inspiration of mine, and pretty much any other comic artist in the business, would be 100 years old!
In honour of this incredible man, I was asked to produce a drawing for the Komic Initiaitve's upcoming publication; Kirby and Me. It features work of over 200 comic artists that have been inspired by Jack's work.

With the weather forecast set to sunny cloud, I'm set for Shambala Festival.
There'll be 200 music acts across 12 live stages, cabaret, stand up comedy, talks and debates (no blathering) circus and acrobats and ME!
Visually stunning veues and intriguing punters; lots of inspiration for spectacular comic characters.
You can catch me in the family area.
Only a month to go until MCM Comicon Scotland!
So excited - this will be the first time in over ten years I've been signing in Scotland!!!
I will have new Dredd Prints available, original artwork and comics available for you to buy.
See you there,
