Here are some storyboards I have been working on. They’ve been written in chronological order but this is not necessarily the order they will appear in within the story. Instead, the narrative will start in the present tense and flashback to these scenes as the plot unravels…you with me?

Some character designs here showing how the star of my new project might look as both a human and a machine hybrid. Had been thinking the spindly old James Jonah Jameson look-a-like was a dead cert but now my story is changing I might make him a little younger. The storyboard was just an improv . . . → Read More: Man, machine, space and time
…from me sketchbook. I’ll try not to leave it 3 months until I post again next time!
Haven’t put anything up for a while. Here’s a sample of what I’ve been up to. Mainly sequence designs, character designs and storyboards…
More sketchbook stuff. The ‘Hello Kitty’ toy has inspired a new character for my graphic novel…I’ll explain all in my next post I promise. Too late and too tired for that sorta thing right now.

A self portrait I did on the way to visit my mother for Easter break (from my reflection in the train carriage window) .
Not fantastically drawn but here’s just a little idea that I thought could link some of the larger scenes in the comic…a counter worker’s POV of customers in quick succession. Each one gives either a boring, silly or just plain odd one liner. They could perhaps get sillier as the story progresses…maybe even start to . . . → Read More: Yet another scene idea..
Ok, I’ve ditched the idea of a dodgy video mix up for my opening scene (see last week’s post). It just seemed a bit…old hat. Here’s a new rough idea – a bitter old employee’s leaving do. The script definitely needs tightening here..lots of tightening – should be less frames and punchier. Nevertheless, I thought . . . → Read More: In the boozer
