"As if by magic, the shopkeeper appears..."

I've just set up a shop on my website. First up is my comic from 1999, Aunt Connie & the Plague of Beards. 36 pages of gangsters, werewolves, pensioners and George Bernard Shaw. It's just crying out to be made into a musical so get in on the ground floor and tell all your friends you were there before it was the West End/Broadway sensation it's destined to become. Alternatively, help me clear a bit of space in my loft. It's available in English and French (Tante Connie et les Homme a Barbe) and all copies sold will be signed with a sketch. Coming soon - badges and toys! Watch this space. Just go to my website and click on "Shop".

I've been meaning to draw this pair for ages. They've got a great iconic look and a built in colour scheme that's hard to resist. So, seeing as they've got a new album out I thought I'd give them a go.

Two-Coats McWhinnie (1999)

Here's an unpublished strip (again from the Carney/Edwards dream factory) from way back in 1999. It was intended to be a Missive Device - an ingenious comic strip/postcard venture published by Slab-O-Concrete. Unfortunately Slab went belly up before Two-Coats was ever printed. Here it is now in all it's technicolour, tear-jerking glory. Classic Carney. I remember when I first finished this I was so pleased with it but now looking back 8 years on (!) it looks rough and scruffy. That's always a bit disconcerting but I suppose it's better than looking back at old work and thinking it's better than your current stuff. Anyway, without further ado.....

Sir Jeremiah G'Aaargg

My entry in Sam Hiti's brilliant Fist-A-Cuffs tournament. I went out in the first Battle Royale but I don't feel too bad as I lost to the overall winner, Knitty Gritty. Hell hath no fury like a women scorned (armed with knitting needles). Sir Jeremiah has now gone back to his attic room to finish his Sudoku.

Late Night

A three page comic strip I did some time last year with Ian Carney for Delaine Derry Green's "Not My Small Diary"comic. All the strips in it are autobiographical. I had the pleasure of illustrating just one incident from the teenage life of Wirral legend, Ian Carney. "There are eight million stories in the naked city, this is just one of them."

Two Velvets

A pic of Lou and Sterling from the Velvet Underground that I did about a year ago and completely forgot about until I found it buried in the depths of my hard drive. I think I put it to one side until I'd drawn the rest of them. If I ever get round to it I'll let you know. Incidentally, the Velvet Underground was the first pop star comic strip I did for Deadline way back in 1993. Ah, memories!
