Red Fox All-Star Colouring Book

P1010297

Just got my copy of
red fox's all-star colouring book ! It's awesome! And I got to draw a page for it!
Red Fox is one Richard J Smiths characters. If you haven't come across his work before...where have you been? He's been making comics for a long time now, we used to sell his stuff when we ran There Goes Tokyo... and his work continues to go from strentgh to strength.
RJS comics available to buy at Lulu
The colouring book features lots of different artists and includes a gorgeous cover by
Dan Schoening.

unicorn tricycle floosie!

Just recieved a new contribution for the HBS  book, from the amazing Kristyna.
Check out her work, it's super awesome.
I will be doing a proper update to the HBS blog soon.


Incase you missed the P.R.E.S.S. mail out:

Events:


As discussed at the last meeting, we will go ahead with a series of small events early next year. The idea is to raise the profile of what we're trying to achieve, build up a network of contacts, establish a community and recruit more people who have the time and the passion for building a community business. The events should also help us decide what is viable and what is needed by the community.

I'm involved with running a comics event at the Tyneside Cinema in March which I will do under the P.R.E.S.S. banner, so we can tie it in with our other events.

It will be followed by a series of talks in Sunderland and then a weekend event which will be a taster version of what we would hope to do with a permanent space.

The council have been very helpful with the proposals. I have a slew of meetings early in the new year which should determine the venue, funding and dates.

If you are interested in giving a talk or workshop, having a stall or exhibiting work and you have not already been contacted by me, please get in touch a.s.a.p!



Branding:

We've got some branding now, thanks to fonografiks, which I will be unveiling very soon! We now also have a twitter account, http://twitter.com/PRESSukinfo , which will mainly be used for news and opportunities until the events get under way, so get in touch if you'd like a mention or if you have anything to promote. And please follow us if you are on twitter too.

Sharktopus

Finally had some time to do some doodling today.  Behold, the Sharktopus. Mother nature wishes she thought of this.
I don't know what's going on with this picture. Maybe the poles have collided. I'm sure Roland Emmerich could do a very expensive movie about it.

unfinished lectures


Here's a sketch for a painting I didn't get time to do. It was for the exhibition at the Literary and Philosophical society, but I ran out of time. It's based on the programme of lectures that took place there.
That's an eyeball in the front row.

New blogs and twitter.

Horny Biker Sluts has it's own blog now, nothing on there yet but that's just because I'm snowed under with events and pitches (determined to make some movies next year, oh yeah!) and all the other usual stuff. I'll start adding things soon, so keep an eye on it!
http://hbsbook.blogspot.com/
P.R.E.S.S. now tweets because stuff is moving forward and it seemed like a quick way to share info, and give little updates, which will be handy over the coming months.
http://twitter.com/PRESSukinfo
Being new to Twitter I haven't a clue what I'm doing, so it's worth following just to see what idiot thing I'll do next.
