I have just started a webpage on Facebook to promote my artwork…
Who knew? My friend Garen Ewing has set up a link from an interview with me which was done over 17 years ago to my deviantart site but while checking this out ,I discovered via Comicvine that I made my USA debut in 1990 and I never knew about it ! It was Slimer 13 from Now…

I was challenged by to do a dip pen and ink sketch, without prior pencils. It took me nearly 15 minutes to find a dip pen and a bottle of ink, perhaps the drawing took a little less time, not sure. The proportions are a bit iffy but I enjoyed drawing with pen again..and no blots!
We had to pack up and move house since my last posting so life has been fairly chaotic and stressful. The new house is smaller and we underestimated on that, result too much stuff too little room!
I enjoyed the Exhibition, sharing wall - space with such excellent artists was an honour.
I was even on TV for all of 25 seconds as part of a news feature on the Exhibition along with the brilliant Cam Kennedy.
I had my first experience of meeting a Fan as this guy who was a Fan of 'The Real Ghostbuster's' seemed genuinely thrilled to meet me after buying a page of my Ghostbuster's work - a slightly surreal experience to say the least!
I only sold a few pieces so not a big success financially but as an ego booster and self - promotion was very successful.
It has brought me some new Caricature commissions already.
It seems that Socorro my Crime - Fiction GN, written by Steven Grant was actually published by Antarctic Press nearly four years ago and I did not know about it!
I do not blame AP as they must have got it from Platinum Comics - but someone should have let me know about it, especially as I am due some FREE copies!

Glad to see you accepted the invitation, Tony.
If I were you, I would suggest creating a cartoon folder and load it up with what you like to do best!  The Beano samples would be good for starters. I think there are lots of people doing superheroes to go along with the crowd, not realizing that their true love lies elsewhere, simply because they haven't experienced it yet.  I say, wake 'em up.  Show 'em the joy of cartooning. :)

Well - at least it will be interesting to see if I get a response. I have been very absent from DA recently.

It will be interesting to see if and how the group members fulfill the mandate to learn from each other.  From what I can see, the focus on inking is way too narrow and their is no education of which to speak.
