Beetle Drive Robot Doodles

I was at a beetle drive recently at a local church hall. As I was very bad at playing the game of beetle I drew a few robots in the panels of the beetle card. I'm very pleased with the finished result which was done with a biro and a couple of coloured pencils.

For those of you who don't beetle was a game played at social gatherings in the distant past. It's good fun and based on drawing parts of a beetle based on the roll of a dice. It's surprisingly good fun and is great way to get talking to people.

A***C***** Review in Comics Heroes

It was amazing to read a review of *rse*ancer in Comics Heroes Magazine. It's always great to read a good review about something you've done but this was is a proper magazine on sale in WH Smith so it made it sort of official.

Anyway the review described AC as "...incredibly funny, jaw-droppingly honest and, frankly, inspiring, utterly refusing to wallow in self pity." Which was pretty much what we were aiming at. They gave us four stars and like my "expressive artwork".

What made this even better was that neither Gordon or I had chased Comic Heroes for a review and it came totally out of the blue for both of us.

I'm chuffed.
