I don’t need to introduce John Allison to you. You should already be familar with his mega famous webcomic Scary Go Round and his mega new and shiny webcomic Bad Machinery. If you’re not then, you need some schooling, yo.
I’ve admired John’s drawing shapes and designs for a while now and I’m amazed how overflowing with creativity he is. I mean, there’s creative and then there’s John. At cons he’ll be sitting there drawing away coming up with five or six new comic ideas or drawings of me and Cadwell with key swords. He’s amazing and I’m honoured that he’s drawn me and the missus.
If you’d like this as a wallpaper then we’ve prepared some for you. You should click to enlarge anyway, as the image’s much nicer when it’s not shrunk.
The first of two comic strips today comes from an old friend who goes under the pseudonym of Cowface. For those who have been following my career for a while may remember a comic anthology I put together called Eyesore, which blossomed from the illustration course of Kent Institute of Art & Design, Maidstone. The third issue has sadly become the equivalent of Chinese Democracy, Smile, that third Glassjaw album and may or may not ever come out.
Anyway, Cowface was one of the highlights of Eyesore and his illustrations credits have graced the pages of lads mag FHM. I went to his wedding reception last year and got lost thanks to a cab driver taking us to the wrong bloody venue but I’ll save that story for potentially hilarious comic. Thanks for the gorgeous comic, Mr Face!
Next up we have a comic featuring everyone’s favourite blow up dinosaur, Dracula by the ever so nice Ste Hitchen. Ste does a lovely journal comic called The Ste-Regular and is worth checking out. A new print edition has just come out, so if you see him at a con you should totally nab one.
