Long time no post…

September 27, 2013

Afternoon all.

It’s been a while since I last posted anything on here, so just wanted to let you all know what’s been going on.

To begin with I had the TMTM kickstarter which was awesome and you folk were amazing. I’ve since had everything but the t-shirts and the comic itself delivered. Here’re some piccies:

I’ll post more when they arrive!

I’ve also been putting together Nerd Fest Comic Con which takes place 5th October at the Britannia Hotel, NG1 6BN, 10am-4pm. Tickets are available if you fancy visiting us. I’ll also have a table there so if you missed out on my kickstarter I should have the goodies there too PLUS other bits and bobs!

Kickstarter Thanks!

September 14, 2013

Sorry or the delay in doing this post, but I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who supported my kickstarter campaign, be it by pledging, RTing, Sharing etc etc, I really did appreciate it.

The book is now finished, I’m just finalising it before sending it to print!!!

wtc-printsI have received the first batch of rewards, the prints and have ordered the badges and the mugs. I’m also hoping to order the t-shirts this week once I have sizes etc finalised. I’ll get some photos up as soon as I have them!

I’m now working on the other stretch reward, the book of all 160 comic strips of The Monkey and the Mouse. It’s official title is: The Monkey and the Mouse: Pretend We’re Having Fun.

We’re also only 3 weeks away from Nerd Fest Comic Con 2013, Nottingham that I’m organising and it’s pretty hectic at the minute finalising things (as you’d expect!), so my apologies that I’ve not posted a load of new work!

I’d also like to plug another book I worked on recently, Michael Regina’s Adamsville graphic novel. It’s a sci-fi adventure book in the vein of X-Files/Super 8 and is well worth a look!!! Michael’s currently running a Kickstarter to get the book printed (sounds familiar 😉 ) so please take a look, this book NEEDS to be printed!!

Kickstarter Update

August 13, 2013

Wow!!! You folk are amazing!

At the time of writing this (13th Aug 22:45) we’ve long passed the first stretch goal (target above and beyond the target of £500) of £650 and are rocketing toward the second stretch goal of £800! We are currently at £715. This is phenomenal and I’m almost speechless.

So with the first stretch goal the reward for everyone pledging £20 or more will receive 4 TMTM badges with backer.

If/when we hit £800, everyone who has pledged £30 or more will receive a TMTM book with over 160 TMTM comic strips!!!

I can’t get over how generous and awesome you folk are. Thank you again.

Kickstarter

July 26, 2013

Evening folks. Like so many artists with very little funds I’ve gone to the Kickstarter to help me get my comic book “The Monkey and the Mouse: Where’s the Cheese?” professionally printed.

When the Monkey and the Mouse fly to the moon looking for cheese, they find more than they’ve ever thought possible!

The Story: The Monkey and the Mouse need cheese, but the fridge is empty…
Where to find some? PING! The Moon!
But things aren’t always what you think they are, and don’t always believe what people tell you.

Believe in “alilens”? Or “Moon Monsters”? Or that the moon’s made of cheese?

You will now!

 

The Book: The Monkey and the Mouse: Where’s the Cheese? is a fun family friendly space adventure comic. It’s the first story driven comic book featuring the Monkey and the Mouse, my own 2 kiddies.  It will be 40 pages of B&W art with full colour cover and a guest pinup image by Michael “Adamsville” Regina.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Monkey and the Mouse, please check out the comic strip here!

The Goal: I’m looking to print a 44 page, professionally produced, comic book ready to sell at this year’s Nerd Fest Comic Con, Nottingham UK  and beyond.

My funding target is based on book printing and rewards fulfilment, any extra money raised will allow me to prepare more merchandise for my Comic Convention debut.

I also have some stretch rewards in mind if/when we blast through that funding target!

Rewards: These include the fully printed book itself, TMTM mugs, T-Shirts and even your name printed in the story! As well as these there will be prints and original artwork and also the chance to get your hands on my other book!

 

PLEASE go check it out and see if it’s something you’d be interested in backing.

Many thanks

Kev

Nerd Fest Comic Con 2013

July 3, 2013

Greetings all. Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but believe me when I say I have been busy!

I have a couple of sketch cards I’ve not posted BUT I’ve been spending most of my time on two projects.

159-the-plankFirst is my comic strip, The Monkey and the Mouse. I’m working on a 40ish page comic book which follows the two kiddies looking for cheese and venturing to…the Moon! (original I know!) About 6 pages inked so slowly getting on with it. (plus there will be the odd strip done – including tomorrow 4th July).

Most of my time, however, has been taken up with Nerd Fest Comic Con 2013, Nottingham UK, October 5th. We have some amazing artists booked in as well as local bands and so of the industry’s leading comic book artists! Tickets are now on sale if you fancy coming down for the activities, and if you’re a comic creator or artists tables are still available!

Gonna be awesome.

Will try to bring you more artwork as I do it. Hope to get things done for NF so will post when I have.

February 28, 2012

Greetings all. Really am slacking on posting stuff here, but here’re a few bits and bobs I’ve been doing.

Coming up with potential new comic characters for a new strip (maybe)

Also doing some more “signs” for Baby Signing Mummy…visit her site to see those.

GETTING SOME Band of Brothers shirts printed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Will let you know when and where you can get those from VERY soon.

 

Also finished a family portrait commission:

 

PLUS I’m working on a comic script for my webcomic The Monkey and the Mouse, which I hope to start draft 2 of the script this week.

So all in all I have a few bits and bobs I’m working on, as well as usual sketching stuff. I tend to post most of my stuff on twitter, so if you’re about on there come take a look. Thanks

Been a bit busy

February 13, 2012

Evening, sorry for my lack of posts, but trust me I’ve been doing stuff (including moving house). Got Bridgman’s Constructive Anatomy so have been drawing some mitts as well as some Phineas and Ferb among others.

Enjoy.

And I’m still working on The Monkey and the Mouse comic strips, almost 100 in the bag! You can now pick up the TMTM ebook for FREE!!!

Star Wars Marker Pieces

Did a couple of Star Wars themed pics recently. First up is an A5 marker piece I did for a friend, Kev Lloyd who has helped me out no end with hosting for The Monkey and the Mouse webcomic:

And then these two are A4 marker pics for a charity event to raise money/awareness for Cystic Fibrosis:
