It is about…well me!
An article by David Pennock, creative director.
After watching “Stand by Me” for the first time yesterday I was influenced by the friendship between the boys. Each character is so distinctive and they seem to be an odd mix to hang out together. Such a great film, loved it!
Again a quick wee doodle and simple colors- hopefully this simplicity only adds to the characters.
I wanted to create individuals you were a bit unique. A simliar take to “The Breakfatst Club” I suppose. An unlikely group hanging out together and chillin.
Here we have Ginger, Babe, Hoods and Shades.
Right I won’t show anything just yet as I still need to wait for the results but this is my most recent short sci-comic for a competation.
The winner will be announced in October at the Dundee Comic Day (I recommend you go to!) so fingers crossed and I win big monies!
However the process has been most enjoyable and that is the main thing…awwwww

For now here are the two main characters; Space thief RA (my first ever drawing to be completly done in Illustrator and colored in photoshop). This doodle and the girl came into mind and then after having a dream that featured these two characters I had a story!
IRIS (hand drawn and coloured in photoshop) A local Glaswegian girl who wants to escape from the city and wishes for adventure! Influenced by my experience this summer I will admit.
These two characters collide (as the title suggests), a simple and fun stroy that was a lot of fun to do!
