I’ll be taking some time off from tomorrow, to re-charge my batteries after a particularly hectic bout of storyboarding, so I thought I would go out with a bang. To anyone who this image comes to as a complete shock I recommend you look at the DC Vertigo comic Preacher by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
A chap called Ryan Ballard is putting together a compendium of sketches based on the afore-mentioned comic, and I jumped at the chance to produce my take on Miss Oatlash and her sexual preferences. Ryan's blog: http://thepreacherproject.blogspot.com/
Preacher is, in my opinion, one of the best entry points into modern comics and a highly entertaining, stomach-churning thrill ride with humour and a body count to match. Great story-telling from Dillon and a pin-sharp script from Irish writer Ennis, both of whom used to work for 2000AD. Apparently Ennis thinks his run on Judge Dredd wasn't much cop (no pun intended), I thought it was great.
BICS went very well, sold 12 copies of The Mice and put one in the hands of Dave Gibbons.
