Elephantmen Signing

Recently I went along with my copy of Elephantmen Wounded Animals to a signing by Richard Starkings and Doug Braithwaite. I've recently got into Elephantmen and I'm hooked, so it was great to meet both of them at the Travelling Man comic shop in Newcastle.

The sketch and signing Richard did was great, although it did give him a bit of panic initially. I really liked the croc and also the lettering alongside. I've long been an admirer of his work with Comicraft.

It was excellent to look at Doug's sketchbook. It had some great stuff in his smooth and dynamic style. He was a top bloke and we chatted about his work and also working in the comic industry.

First Cartoon Post

Here's my first post just to get the blog going. It's of a quotation from CH Duell of the US Patent Office who unwisely stated  in 1899; 'Everything that can be invented has been invented'.

This is a single panel piece ink on paper. Added the colour on GIMP.

Welcome

Welome to Cuttlefish Comics blog.
This is to showcase my art, cartoons, writing and publications. It is a celebration of comics and the community behind it. 
It will focus mainly on my work, but I'd also like to show other creators work that I like or admire or anything else I find interesting.
Cartoons will be posted soon.
