Only two weeks to go until I’m back in Melksham, Wiltshire, in time for Melksham comic-con. I’m going to be sharing a table with tomorrowsjoe again and we’re going to be hitting it hard with as many comics as we can carry and as many sketches as we can scribble!

We’ll be there all weekend sat at table 17 so if you’re in the area for the August Bank Holiday come down!

The Yorkshire Cowboy 1.10 by AaronSmurfMurphy
The Yorkshire Cowboy 1.10
Occasionally I actually draw comics (well actuality I’m *always* drawing comics albeit slowly and around the day job, the mural and commissions). This is page 10 of The Yorkshire Cowboy that I drew last year but only now got around to scanning thanks to the help of yvash.deviantart.com/ I will eventually put an issue of this out.

Trent 1000 LPT Module 08 by AaronSmurfMurphy
Trent 1000 LPT Module 08
Inks for a Mural design I'm putting together for Rolls-Royce. This was taken from an A5 sketch I put together in my spare time. I had to muck around with the cylinder section as my original sketch had it far too stretched out compared to the actual Module's real appearence. The problem was that condensing the cylinder section messed up the curves somewhat as I'd free handed the whole thing and didn't have a French Curve to work with.

This is the first inks intensive thing I've done in a while and the whole thing was like pulling teeth as I remembered how to get the most out of fine liners.

The next step will be to blow this up to 2A0, reverse relief i on a board and paint it in.

Luke's Lovely Liquids by AaronSmurfMurphy
Luke's Lovely Liquids
Inked lines for Luke's Lovely Liquids, a face book page for my friends Luke's guide to real Ale & Cider Pubs around the UK. 

This came out of being a regular drinker at The Last Post in Derby and sketching Thumbnails for comics at their bar. Luke asked if I could produce him promo work for the face book page and this is what I turned out. I used Lee behind the bar as a reference model and drew a bit of it every time I went in for a drink.

This could probably do with some colour work doing to it at some point and I still need sort the aspect ratio out to match the size of Face books Banner pictures.

Well then.

This Saturday, the 4th of October you can find me (and many seriously talented Comics Artists) at Nottingham Comics Convention. The show's being held at Nottingham Conference Centre, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham NG1 4BU which is a great central location close to the Trams and several major bus routes.

Ah, I was probably too late to get involved in this as always. Ah well, thanks for considering me!
