Major Sun

So, it's done. The 8 pages are sent, and here I am, with my final character design, the titular hero, Major Sun. A character of few words, evidently.

The waiting begins.

Surround yourself with friends

This is my entry for the Strand Tote Bag Contest (ends tomorrow!)

I used Erin as my model, so if, by the hugest outside chance it wins, she will be all over New York. ;o)

Fun with Superheroes

I don't buy a lot of superhero comics.

There's a cycle to superhero stories I just don't enjoy. When I realised I would never receive a proper resolution from the comics, I gave me my own, and just stopped buying them.

Plus, it's all dark and grim and gritty, and they're all largely just rambling from one conflict to the next, without ever being about anything. So I thought I'd give it a go myself. Create a superhero title with a beginning, a middle, and an end.

What's it about? Well, I don't want to say too much about it; I do like my surprises. ;o) But I thought I'd share my character designs inspired by the recent Guardians of the Globe teasers I've been enjoying, while I finish colouring up those first 8 pages.

But where's the super hero you say? All in good time.
