So... it's late November and I'm in the middle of three projects!
Taking up most time and providing most enjoyment are the monthly Doctor Who Adventures strips! I'm already at issue 11 penciling and inking away late into the evenings - and loving every minute!
I'm reliably informed that I am now a PRO - so I'll let that sink in for a while and continue with a broad dreamy smile.
11 issues in and I have also been spending a lot of time with the Panini crew at Comics festivals and most recently the Doctor Who Festival... what a treat! I managed to geek out a little as well, as I managed to bump into several brilliant people on the rounds - Tony Lee, Brian Williamson, Lew Stringer and series writer Sarah Dollard!! cool eh!
I'm also getting to work with seriously great writers on the strip and Paternoster gang stories. Apart form the ever present Jason Quinn (Editor extraordinaire) I've also managed to work with James Peaty ( Super Girl, Green Arrow) and the very popular Tommy Donbavand(Scream Street) to name but a few!
I am trying desperately to do more StormChasers for Unstoppable Comics but the Doctor does demand a lot of attention.
A super secret project with Panini also involves Marvel Super heroes which I can not say anything about now - but which makes me grin ear to ear every time I receive a brief from the Panini editorial team.
For now I'll simply leave my Festival Exclusive Poster hear and go back to drinking lots of coffee!
What a wonderful life! (bit Christmassy that)
