Cake Topper Commission

Honestly, if I could have spent more time on these, I would have. I basically got this commission on Tuesday and have just finished it in time for the guy to pick them up. I a) would have like to have made them better and b) have made an informed decision to switch to Sculpey in future, as Fimo tends to buckle under its own weight and warps on the oven if it's a bigger than normal piece.
But for my first cake toppers I guess they're ok. I'll keep practicing! ;)

Hello everyone!
I really need to remember to post on this new blog, and get myself out of the Livejournal way of thinking.
I've recently booked a table at the Bristol Comics Convention and have finally once and for all to ressurect the only decent idea I've ever had with regards to writing, and finish it. This time I'm doing it properly. My comics were always done with very little planning and although it made for an organic process, I usually ended up giving up on them or making mistakes in the final pages. So I've been spending any spare time I have roughing thumbnails. Here's a couple of pages of spazzy drawing, I know it's not obvious what's going on as I haven't added dialogue (That usually is the only thing I write as I go, I'm just putting symbols in the speech bubbles now to remind meof what I want the characters to be saying) and the drawings are crap, but I'll keep updating as I go and hopefully soon you should see something half decent.

In other news, I'm continuing to build my unholy army of blue things, another project for the Bristol Con 2010. I want to fill my table with these guys!

My First Real Set Building Job!

I thought I would start off my new blog with the first proper bit of set building work I was able to get, late last year. I did lots of little jobs on it like gluing the lenses into 100 sets of 3D glasses, casting most of the windows on the outside view and whatnot. So here it is! Enjoy!
