The Pied Piper

The Pied Piper

This is an idea I came up with ages ago, but couldn't figure out how to make it work. I'm pretty happy with the composition and style now though.

[Edit] Version 2.0: I've added the title into the glaring gap at the top:

The Pied Piper v2.0

K6 Auction: Open Mic

[Edit, 9 Dec: The picture sold for £75 in the silent auction for Build A School, which is not bad at all - especially as it was bought by a stranger who'd never heard of me - thank you Mandy :-)]

This is the A2 pencil drawing that will be auctioned at Karmageddon on Saturday 6th December for an as-yet unnamed charity. (It may have been named, but I can't find it.)

Karmageddon is the big London Join Me meet, and will inevitable involve lots of free hugging and the like on Regent and Oxford Streets, followed by a trip to the pub, where the auctions and raffle and other such shenanigans will take place.

Last year the bidding got rather silly and my Star Trek Comic made £220, and I'd be very impressed if it was similar again this year (Jase, Jane and Rich, I'm looking at you here...).

Sketchbook: Gender Equality

Gender Equality

I drew this one on the TGV on my recent holiday in France, when I saw a French woman reading a women's magazine. Apart from the language, it looked just like a British magazine, and it dawned on me that regardless of audience, women's and men's magazines both tend to have women on their front covers.

... only in different stages of undress.

In unrelated news, you may notice over there on the right >>>>

that I have set up a Google Group. If you join it, then every time I post a comic, it will be emailed to you automatically. So you don't have to check the site to see if I've got around to creating something new. (No one in the group but me will be able to see your email address.)
