I've been kindly invited by the lovely folks of LEEDS THOUGHT BUBBLE festival to attend the show on Saturday 15th November, and I can't wait!
I'll have a table set up where I'll be doing free sketches for people, as well as selling various bit and pieces like finished drawings of popular characters and maybe limited edition A3 prints of some of my colour work.
But get this....with every free sketch or purchase, I shall be giving away a Krispy Kreme doughnut!!!! Let's see Mark Millar beat that!
Of course, if no one approaches me, that just means more doughnuts for me, so nah,nah....
You'll be able to find me there by looking out for the 2 metre tall stand that I've just had made up (picture attached)!
All the info on the festival can be found here!
Stop by and say hi!

Yup, you read it right folks....I guess now it's been officially announced, I can confirm that I'm leaving BIONICLE.
Believe me, this was not an easy decision for me to make. I was planning on drawing BIONICLE throughout 2009 and hopefully beyond, but sudden schedule changes to accommodate an extra issue to next year's run left me unfortunately unable to commit, without seriously impacting on my other professional, and personal commitments.
It was one of those rare moments in life where you have to decide what's really more important to you. Hopefully this decision won't come back to bite me in the ass, but right now, it feels like I made the right choice--though that doesn't mean I don't feel sad about it.
But hey! I'm very happy with the work that I did throughout my run, and my final issue is still to be released in November! And what a great final issue it is (I've attached a teaser panel)! It'll be a very natural end to my time drawing BIONICLE, leaving a clean slate for the next artist to take over (I know who it is, and he's gonna ROCK!).
Bionicle fans should also know that I recently finished a poster that I think will be included in a future Brickmaster magazine.
So thank you so much to the entire LEGO/DC team, and of course all the lovely BIONICLE fans for making me feel welcome. 2008 has been an incredible year for me!
Take care for now.

Hellooooo.....well it's that time again...
Right now lots of Lego fans around the universe are recieving issue 14 of BIONICLE, so I'm allowed to post a few scans of my line work, though I've also attached a scan of the cover, wonderfully coloured by Ulises.
This issue introduces the REALLY COOL vehicles piloted by the Bionicles. Seriously, the kids are gonna love playing with these toys--though they're lucky they don't have to draw them! Have you SEEN how frikkin' detailed they are???!!! GAH!!!!!
Take care for now,
