Hello everyone.

Its been a while since my last post and I’d like to say I’ve been busy creating new pages for my comic but unfortunately I’ve been mostly working. During my miniscule breaks from the wonderful world of signalling I’ve been watching as much as possible of Team GB at the Olympics. On a more creative subject I’ve been attempting to get some work done on my wife’s friends cupcake artwork. The main logo went down well and I’ve been asked to design business cards and leaflets. Here is a link to Sweet E’s Cupcakes on Facebook for anyone who lives in and around South East Essex. She makes some cracking cakes and will probably bring me some for including her in this post.

I was also given the task of sorting kits for the 7 a-side football team and designing a logo for the club badge. I’ve added the badge below.

When I’ve had a few spare minutes at work I’ve been practicing various drawing styles and subjects with a view to actually drawing the next page of Bionic Eyed Snail and being happy with it. Hopefully I’ll get out of the slump I’m in and get back to the comic. All the drawing I’ve been doing has led to a colleague asking me to design him a tattoo. He wants a day of the dead style sleeve and this is something I’m going to crack on with in the next couple of days.

With my 30th birthday fast approaching my wife had arranged with a friend to have Sir Michael Caine sign some Italian Job related goodies for me at the premiere of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. Unfortunately he couldn’t make it after hurting his leg in New York. It just so happened that my wife revealed this to me while I was looking longingly at the Kickstarter campaign set up by Jason Brubaker for ReMIND Vol. 2. I stumbled across this site during a bored google session. Without this site and the amazing artwork on it I would probably never have been inspired to rekindle my love of drawing. As far as I’m concerned this guy is a genius. Anyway I’m getting carried away.

The whole idea of Jason’s Kickstarter is to raise money to be able to self publish the second volume of his graphic novel. Fans can pledge money and receive rewards depending on the amount. I excitedly went for the top option (at the time) and pledged $120 and a bit of postage which guaranteed me a box set including a signed, sketched and numbered copy of volume 2 and a signed and numbered copy of the first volume which was kept back from the first Kickstarter. This option had a very limited run which sold out on the 2nd day. Jason wanted to raise $24000 in 30 days to cover printing costs etc and after 9 days he is up to $52000+ already. There are still plenty of pledge options to go for and if you are a fan of comics, graphic novels or amazing artwork then you should have a look at the site and the Kickstarter. I’ve included links below to both sites so please take a look and support a great project.
