Is it getting dusty in here?

Hey people!

Whats it been? Three months? Dear God, I'm really bad at this blogging thing! In my defense, its been a busy few months with other stuff, so its not like I had much drawing stuff to post up. Never let it be said I talk too much & have nothing to say, eh?
Over the last little while, I've basically done a few Transformers things. A couple of commissions for people, a Mosaic for the IDW project (which is currently being coloured by fellow Irish artist & TF fan, Gareth Watson) which I will post up as soon as possible, and the strip below.
As some of you know, some months ago, TF Ireland online launched a forum (check it out here). Recently they have started a project called "Trans-Missions", which is a group of 1-page comic strips with an Irish slant on things (i.e. they don't take themselves too seriously!!). My contribution features the websites mascot, Blackstuff, and is called "Bad Day at Blackstuff's". Its the first time I've done something completely digitally - no pens or paper invloved! It was.. an experience, I'll say that much. Its not a bad way to do things, and I can understand the advantages, but personally I think I prefer the old-fashioned way. I spend way to much time on the computer in work as it is!

So whats up next for me? Well, I'm starting to work on a new comic (which I'm hoping to have ready for Derry next year), and getting a few new pieces ready for the Dublin convention in November, so watch this space!

In the meantime, enjoy "Bad Day at Blackstuff's"
