I'll be attending at least another three UK cons this year:

MCM London [May 26-28], London Super Comic Con [August 25-27] and MCM London [October 27-29]. Feel free to stop by and say hello if you'll be attending also :)

How-To Books:

* 'Digital Manga' is available for humans to buy on my website at… : An in-depth tutorial book teaching virtually everything I know about Photoshop and colouring characters.

* 'The Artist's Guide to Drawing Manga'
 is also now available on my site… : A beginners guide to manga and character creation. It's effectively an updated version of my older book 'The Art of Drawing Manga'.

With, 67,000 words of written content across both books, I'd like to think there's at least something in there that most artists could benefit from and enjoy :)
Both titles sold with free postage within the UK. I can also ship to Europe, US and worldwide also.

Art Related:

* My portfolio is now at 

* I'm still tattooing part-time, having carried out over 300 tattoos or sessions to date.

* I've got a vague idea for a new book project, but no publisher on board thus far, so might just release pages as a series of Blog posts on my website?

* Commissions open, so if interested, send me a message :)

Happy late birthday! I hope you at least backed up the forums. The memories, learned a lot from all of you.
Bomu Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks Yuki. Yeah, the Organic Metal Forums are there, but I'm guessing there was some behind the scenes change to my web server and they aren't loading up as they should. I don't know if it's worth me trying to get them back online since they'd not been active for years! They had their use before social media was much of a thing, but the internet has changed so much in the last 15 years and independent artist forums are no longer necessary. Ah well, if at some point they were useful to a few people like yourself in some small way, I'm glad :)

Social media just isn't the same.

My brother was in art college and bought me one of your books and I searched for you until I found those forums. The community I've experienced back then really made a difference. Maybe all of us former forum folks will hit up your DA page more often.
