The Intercorstal: 683

The Intercorstal: 683

Hello anybody still listening! I've been away, ferreting away at this and that. And one of those 'thats' is an abstract homage to British anthology comics, called '683'. It's all finished up, and I'm currently Kickstarting a print run. If you feel like checking it out, the link is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/grthink/the-intercorstal-683 And if you feel like supporting the project... well, I think you're amazing, and am hypothetically/metaphorically high5ing you all over the shop.

The Intercorstal website, and 'After Smith'

The Intercorstal website, and 'After Smith'

Hello all, I don't come around these parts very often any more, but am glancing by to say: Hey, guess what?! My comic, which I posted the first page of here all the way back in 2008, has it's own website now: http://intercorstal.com Also, an exhibition of my work -- in this case, 10 pages of comic which recreate comics written by John Smith for 2000AD -- will be open to the public in Bremen, Germany from the 11th September through the 4th October. Details can be found here, if you're interested, and in Germany.

So, I've finally made the step and become a Dot Com -- grthink.com, to be exact (http://www.grthink.com) I'll probably update art news there, rather than here from now on...for instance, news on the Operation Concrete launch which happened on the 26th Nov! http://www.grthink.com/2009/12/operation-concrete-update.html In non-art, Bill Hopkins is growing into an amazing human person, and already has a developed vocabulary (if you count 'Ooh', 'Ach', 'Waoh' and 'Burp' as words). I also have a mild addiction to CoD: Modern Warfare 2...anyone else on there?

Sorry, man. I just realized that i forgot to watch you.

I was wondering why i haven't seen any new work from you.
haha not a problem. I'm not on here very often. A few years ago I was on all the time but spend most of my online time on Twitter now :)

Twitter - what's that like?
If you use it a lot and follow people who have the same interests as you, it can be great. Lots of people have a hard time getting into it, though. I love it, have made great contacts there (and friends, too).
