After my post yesterday whereupon I talked about needing a little more relaxation in my life I ended up drinking an entire pot of coffee(more coffee beans than actual water) and was completely wired for the remainder of the day so I didn't get much done.

I did happen to pick up the final trade of Y THE LAST MAN, the concluding arc of Whedon and Cassaday's ASTONISHING X-MEN and STUDIO SPACE a book detailing the work habits of twenty of todays top comic book artists, including the likes of Brian Bolland, Mike Mignola, Dave Gibbons, Sean Phillips, Duncan Fegredo, Tim Sale and Bryan Talbot. So I 'll probably waste most of this morning reading through those...

Below is a comic piece I did with a guy called Mike Hovan, we had originally decided some years back that we were going to try and do the 24 hr comic thing. We bandied about ideas most of the morning and then got down to it, I believe I penciled about fourteen or fifteen pages and then after about seven hours in we went for a coffee, started gabbing and lo and behold we never finished it. I went back to it sometime later, inked and re-purposed some of the art for a couple of guys in an animation studio I was working in at the time who were putting together a little in-house anthology title.
