Life. It is very time-consuming. Its been a long while since my last post, and much has happened… I’ve created a lot of stuff that may or may not appear in the blog at some stage; some of it is much too rough and developmental. I am temporarily scanner-less which has made things a bit tricky, but I hope to get hold of one in the not-too-distant future.
One of the things I struggle with is having too many ideas and not enough time to execute them. One particularly light and fluffy idea that didn’t seem worthy of greatly detailed artwork but was nevertheless something I wanted to get out of my system was a series of gently surreal detective stories based in Cornwall. Hint: we’re not talking murder here.
I love Cornwall. And I love detective stories. I’ve written a few very silly stories based in the fictional Cornish town of St. Blazes, featuring detective Poltroon. The style is quick and childish. Here are the first three pages of one of the stories… I’m off to Paris for a few days after posting but hopefully I’ll be able to keep the story trickling through.
