Stealing a March...
It’s the start of March and supposedly a nudge towards Spring. Snow that looks like the backdrop of Doctor Zhivago belies that fact. But I have sunshine in my heart, thanks to a series of significant breakthroughs that occurred this week.
The news that I am to be making my comic illustrating debut with Titan Comics has been given much attention at the comics website Bleeding Cool.
My last mainstream comic job was doing finishes on a short story by Mark Buckingham for Vertigo. This job marks a significant breakthrough for me as an artist and is the first time an actor has drawn their own character in a comic!
The biggest breakthrough this week was getting the green light from my editor, Lizzie Kaye at Unbound for the full script of “Life Drawing. A Life Under Lights.”
Now for the drawing process to begin!
On Oscar night Sunday I got my “gogglebox” moment, sitting on a sofa and commentating on the glittering gaffs of erstwhile awards ceremonies on the Channel 5 show, “When Awards Shows Go Horribly Wrong.”
This coming week I’ll be head to the grindstone, producing rough thumbnail pages for my book, “Life Drawing. A Life Under Lights.” Reporting progress back here!
Ciao for now!
