Devilish was the self generated word of the week and here’s what I came up with. Style wise this is the most comic-book-like thing I’ve done in ages and it’s definitely indicative of things I’ve been reading  in the last week or so.

First up, this smashing article on comics alliance detailing Jenny Frison’s cover artwork for Ghost issue 0. Which got me thinking about my colouring technique. Secondly I read Darwen Cooke’s New Frontier which is beautifully coloured, as well as stylishly drawn and well written.

And what effect did all this have on my work? Well I spent a lot of time colouring it. And I feel it’s a step forward in that regard. Some of the actual drawing is dreadful, but hey-ho – it was an experiment. My next piece of work, as always, will be awesome!
