I know, I know... I only come on here when I have something to hawk. (Is that how you spell it? I've only heard it said out loud...)

So I just listed the 6 artist proofs of my Adventure Time trading cards (released 23rd July by Cryptozoic Entertainment) on eBay and there's a week for you to get your bids in.

Good hunting! (Oh wait, that's Battlestar Galactica, not Adventure Time.)

Swerve's!

Journal Entry: Wed May 8, 2013, 10:29 AM


I had an idea for something I'd like to do the other day. The reality is, though, that I won't have anything like enough time to do it as I'm very busy with work and it's only for fun. So I'm wondering if any artists, specifically those who enjoy Transformers, would fancy being part of it?

The idea is to re-create the intro to Cheers using characters from the Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye comic, re-naming it Swerve's.

There are fifteen stills in the intro, some easier than others, but if we could draw one each, using Ratchet, Hound, Tailgate, poor Pipes, Fort Max, Swerve himself and many others, I'll put together the animation (simple enough) and there would be a pretty cool little showcase of our skills to go around the net. As a bonus, we might help get some new eyes on the MTMTE comic, which - as you should know - is genius and deserves to continue for many, many years.

There's a Dropbox folder with source images all ready to go. Who's in?

New webcomic - Flamefoxes

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 4, 2013, 7:28 AM


'ello!

I've just popped in to let you know what my new webcomic, called 'Flamefoxes' is launching this Friday, 8th March).

It's a juvenile strip based on characters I created at the age of six, which were all rip-offs of 80s cartoon show characters. Thundercats, especially. None of the names made sense, nor did any of the heroes' or villains' motivations for their actions. It struck me that this would be prime comedy material, especially if I drew it in exactly the same style as my six-year-old self.

So, it's a collaboration 28 years in the making, between me and me. Should be fun!

Want a toy badger?

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 10, 2013, 9:40 AM


Hi! There's only 18 days left before the end of February and the end of your chance to pre-order (and therefore own) my Timebadger toy!

Don't forget, if we don't reach 25 pre-orders, the toy will remain unproduced. So if you want to own it, you have to pre-order soon! As a bonus, all pre-order customers will receive a free sketch from me with their toy.

Tell your toy-loving, badger-cuddling friends!

Timebadger toy available for pre-order!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 1, 2013, 2:15 AM


In a lovely twist of fate, my character Timebadger has been made available to pre-order by the fine folks at Shouldbee! www.shouldbee.com/products/tim…

Here's the deal: if 25 people pre-order the toy, it'll go into production as a 3-inch figure in either colour or plain white, for you customisers out there. This, in turn, will increase the likelihood of plushie and colorways versions, as well as further characters from Timebadger's world; primarily his sidekick Convenient Steven and his arch-nemesis Foxton J Culworthy.

You can use credit card or PayPal to secure your toy! Credit cards will not be charged until the toy is confirmed as being in production. PayPal will be charged immediately but the amount will be refunded if the toy doesn't go ahead.

Shouldbee have a damn good track record of making the toy look very, very close to the artwork (in many cases, much better than the artwork). In fact, they've made toys for Paradox Interactive (The company behind such games as Magicka, War of the Roses etc.), Ace Team (Zeno Clash) as well as Gaslamp Games (Dungeons of Dredmor) and many other partners. You can check out their production portal here: www.shouldbee.com/productionpo…

So rest assured, you will receive the design on the pre-order page.

If this toy doesn't meet your cute threshold (and how could that be? He's adorable), then please at least share the page with people you know who may want a small toy badger in their life, before February 28th (the cut-off date for pre-orders).

All the details are on the Shouldbee site, just follow the link!

www.shouldbee.com/products/tim…

Thank you kindly!

OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 8, 2012, 8:22 AM


For the foreseeable future, I'm taking commissions in various forms!

There's a list of my standard rates on the Commissions page of my site which include Bean Men, vector portraits and sketch cards. If you fancy something a little more extravagant, however, you can get a third off Direct-A-Poster commissions (now 100, down from 150) if you quote BEST BELUGA in the subject line of the email when you order.

Go on, make an artist's December!

Coffee design contest!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 1, 2012, 6:07 AM


Hello! I'm once again in a contest with Threadless, this time with a design for a coffee bag and I have a decent chance, I think...

I'd love it if you would give me a helping hand by clicking the link below, rating my design 5 (requires a quick and painless sign-up) and telling your friends!

Thanks in advance!

Spider-Man t-shirt design - HELP NEEDED!

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 20, 2012, 10:45 AM


Hi everyone,

I'm really making a tit of myself by going all over the internet trying to beg for help, but them's the brakes.

I submitted a Spider-Man t-shirt design to Threadless' recent contest but somehow only got 3 days for voting as opposed to some who had 3 weeks! So it would be a GREAT help if you could please click the link below and rate my design as a FIVE. This will give me a half-decent chance of competing for the prize, which is an official Threadless/Marvel approved Spidey tee design in mass production, plus enough cash to pay my bills (as a newly self-employed artist, believe me... it's sorely needed right now!). It requires you to sign up to Threadless, but I've been assured that this is very quick and costs you nothing.

Any sharing of this info with your friends would also be amazing.

Here's the link:

beta.threadless.com/spiderman/…

THANK YOU!

NYCC

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 9, 2012, 9:43 AM


I have nothing to say about NYCC, but so many journals are popping up with NYCC as the title, I felt left out.

Bye.
