Dredd Con sketch : Leigh Gallagher

  Another Dredd sketch from Birmingham Comics Festival in 2015.  This one is by Leigh ‘The Handsomest Man in Comics’ Gallagher. (It’s true, it was printed in a 2000AD Credit box some time ago). Leigh, best known for Dredd and Defoe for 2000AD,  is currently working on the next arc of the epic Kingmaker –…

Dredd (Universe) con sketch #4 : Henry Flint

Next sketch up from my 2000AD sketch book is by the immensely brilliant Henry Flint. This one was drawn in an Italian restaurant on his knee, after a very long day at Thought Bubble in 2015 – I think he’d been drawing Dredd a lot that day, so chose to draw me my only Nemesis…

Dredd (Universe) convention sketch #3 : Sally Jane Hurst

EDIT – Better pic uploaded. Sorry about that. It’s been a while since I posted a Convention sketch, so here’s one of my absolute favourites. Another Dredd head from my 2000AD Sketchbook 🙂 The ridiculously talented Sally Jane Hurst created this sketch for me at the 2017, 2000AD 40th Anniversary celebration in glamorous Hammersmith. Sal…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Conor Boyle

The second of the two Bride pics I got at Thought Bubble this year, this time from Conor Boyle, recently of Hookjaw fame. If you read my post about getting a sketch from Joelle Jones this one was slightly less awkward. I didn’t even bother asking him, I went straight to his wife/manager and put…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Joëlle Jones

Went to Thought Bubble a few weeks back with only one real goal….get a Bride of Frankenstein sketch from Joëlle Jones, arguably my favourite comic book artist at the moment. Got there first thing Saturday, braved the crowds for about 15 minutes then buggered off as I’m not the best in slow moving nerd crowds….

Some Dark Judges action courtesy of John McCrea

Over on his Twitter Feed John McCrea posted up a few Dark Judges sketches he’s done at various cons. He was also good enough to say we could share these so enjoy…find out where he’s appearing next….start planning on getting your own. Huge fan of his work, especially his Mars Attacks comics which have all…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Steve Sims

Another one from my new sketchbook. Was REALLY pleased with this and pretty sure the artist was too….which is always nice after the initial “You want me to draw WHO?” You can check out more of Steve’s work HERE and I also did a review of one of his comics HERE

Dredd sketch by Dave Clifford

Ok, I’ve fudged the rules a little for this blog post – it’s not actually a Con sketch, but it is by an indie artist, and as it’s such an awesome Dredd sketch, I had to post it up! Dave Clifford is one half of the brilliant indie comics team behind Bearded Skull Comics and their small…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Stuart Tipples aka Stu-Art

Another one from the Book of Brides I started off at the Cardiff Independent Comic Expo. Been a big fan of Stu’s art for years but more importantly he’s an awesome guy to get pissed with…even if he’s wrong about a lot of movies especially Suicide Squad. Another guy you’ll see at cons selling very…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Patrick Goddard

I’m a big fan of Patrick Goddard’s black and white art and am especially in love with how he draws the female characters in Savage for 2000AD. Proper beautiful with a nice 40s/50s thing going on. So have to be honest when I asked him to do me a Bride pic I didn’t say anything…

Dredd con sketch #2 : Mike Collins

Another Dredd head from my 2000AD Sketchbook 🙂 The very lovely Mike Collins created this sketch for me at the 2016 Birmingham Comics Festival (now renamed the Birmingham Comic Con). Mike is a legend and has worked for everyone you can think of in the comics world – in particular the Marvel, 2000AD, and Doctor…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Ben Willsher

Second sketch in my Book of Brides is by Ben “if you look offended my work is done” Willsher. Great pic and really funny too. Always love his 2000AD strips which usually have a few cool visual gags lurking in the backgrounds.  I’ve got an amazing and fully inked Dredd he did me as well…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Simon Wyatt

Another one from Cardiff Independent Comic Expo, this time from local creator Simon Wyatt. Was given this as a stand alone before getting my book to him….which means I get to bug him for ANOTHER one at some point in the future. Score! Author and artist of Unbelievable : The Man Who Ate Daffodils (a…

Dredd con sketch by David Broughton

Back in November 2015, I was fortunate enough to grab one of the last remaining official 2000AD sketchbooks from their Thought Bubble table. It’s half-full already so the Chief Editor of this esteemed new site (aka Him Indoors) thought it was about time I shared the joy because, frankly, they all rock!! The book has…

Bride of Frankenstein Con sketch by Jon Davis-Hunt

Decided to start up a themed sketch book getting as many talented swines as I can to do me pictures of The Bride of Frankenstein. Figured it was a good character open to a lot of interpretation and one I could get people to do “their” version of….if ya know what I mean. Taken the…
