Drawing for the funnies
This week's Dandy (issue 3552, out now until Wednesday) features a Postman Prat story which I scripted as well as illustrated. Usually writers such as David Mason supply the scripts for this strip and they're always a pleasure to draw. On this occasion I was asked to write it, so I enjoyed turning in a bit of comedy cause-and-effect, and a closing pun, in the style of the Tom Thug strips I did for Buster. I've also written the one for issue 3554.
I'm also back drawing Super School for The Beano (or BeanoMAX. Not sure where it'll appear yet.) Only a couple of episodes of this second series drawn so far so I don't know yet when it'll be scheduled to start. Watch this space!
And I can't go without mentioning Toxic of course. I've recently completed another Team Toxic strip plus a few extra bits and bobs for the magazine such as double page spreads for features, games etc. All good fun.
