More process! More colour! I thought it was about time to get back to this fearsome madam. My techniques are moving a little to the left (or maybe the right) at the moment, so going back to an older work-in-progress managed to confuse me quite profoundly for, gosh, a good day or so. Incredible, isn't it? I do worry about my brain sometimes. Quite keen to get this done today/tomorrow, as I'll likely be back on the comic job v. soon.

I hope I've quietly perverted the idea of "Britishness" here, what with the tea drinkers, bowler hatted gent and ominous skies rendered in a vaguely European sort of style and topped off with a decidedly shopsoiled union jack.

It's maybe a little too drenched in texture brush action at this stage, but after seven years of using Photoshop I've only just discovered the joys of utilising the buggers and am thus going quite perfectly bananas with them.

The pencils are done, along with a ghostly suggestion of the title logo at the top right, ready for some vector action. It's been a while since this blog's seen any colour work, so that's what's coming next...

For a blog that bills itself as "Nelson Evergreen Gets Sketchy", this place has been a bit low on, well, sketches of late. So! I present to you a bunch of doodly characters, some of whom may well end up on cover of New British Comics Vol 2 later this year. Oh and The Joker.
A couple of years back writer Jason Louv and I were busy pitching a comic biography of one Aleister Crowley. You know the chap: occultist, mountaineer, poet, perennial frequenter of Madame Infamy's boudoir. A bit of an arse, but a fascinating, colourful arse nonetheless.
You can see the opening two pages of that initial pitch right here.

Anyway! This just hit the shelves:
Says editor Jamie Smart:
Fat Chunk collects together artists from all over the world, from well-known comics titans to fresh new webcomic talent to urban toy designers, and everything in between, and it slaps them all together in a tidy little digest-size anthology! Volume Two - Zombies adds a little rotting flesh to the mix as a variety of artists do their take on the bumbling undead. With over SIXTY artists filling just under 140 pages, you’re sure to find some of the artists you love and discover new ones!
Artists involved in this issue include Aaron Alexovitch, Pete Underhill, Jon Burgerman, Marc Ellerby, Thomas Boatwright, Sarah McIntyre, Nelson Evergreen, and oh fuck FAR more than I can mention here.
Published by SLG Publishing, available to buy from your local comic shop (Diamond code APR090632), book shop, or from amazon etc!
