Demon cover #44
An unused Demon cover for DC Comics which was rejected due to reasons unknown to me now- I think I prefer this to the actual published cover, despite it being drawn on a train....actually, I do most of my pencilling while travelling.....
Here's the actual cover, and I was wrong, this is the better cover....I kinda miss drawing the Demon....
MARS ATTACKS #8
The wonderful Andrew Elder provides the fantastic colours for this romantical valentines cover, due in shops in March!- It's all in the timing at the MA! offices....
Of course, we had to call this one "Bullets! Blasters! Bromance!"
The Black Cat commission.

See you there!
Found in my random pile of art, a variant cover I did for German publishers Dino back in 1999! I'd forgotten I'd done this but whoever coloured it did a great job and I'm happy with the mad animals!
I'll be attending Thought Bubble in Leeds on Saturday and Sunday 17th and 18th November. I'm on the Aces Weekly panel Sunday morning and details of my signing times can be found through this link:
Look forward to seeing you there
