From the Attic: American Kid

Went to visit my parents in my home town of Ripley, Derbyshire last week and after doing a bit of hunting in the attic managed to dig out this early comic. Think I must have been around 9 or 10 years old when I did this. It's inspired by American TV programmes like The Wonder Years and Roseanne that I use to watch all the time. Apologies if it offends any US readers! I think it says a lot about how I viewed the town I grew up in.

You may notice that the sixth cell is drawn in a slightly different style. This is because my older brother hijacked the strip and decided to draw it for me - I've even tippex-ed out what I think must be swearing and added cleaner dialogue.

IF: Intricate

A new drawing for the Illustration Friday theme, 'Intricate'. This is my first proper go at a comic book narrative, possibly inspired by the release of the new Watchmen film I'm looking forward to seeing.
