Captain John Noble



This is a variant cover for an issue of HALF PAST DANGER that I posted over on the HPD site today, so figured I may as well use it here too and kill two birds with one stone.

Creature Design

Bit of creature design for the book I'm doing at the moment. I normally don't have time to do many designs in advance and I just end up winging it on the page, but the cover artist needed it for reference.

Musician Theme Week

The oul theme weeks seem to be falling a bit flat these days. Here is a shot of a bunch of Motown artists. Bonus points for those who can name them all

Amperduke all 3d and all

Been fiddling with 3d stuff the past while


X-MEN LEGACY






(Sorry I missed last week..... was sick and stuck in bed)

A few weeks ago, friend-of-the-Micks Si Spurrier launched a new X-Men series. Si's a mate, so as a present congratulating him on a Marvel ongoing series, I drew this on a sketch-cover for this issue and gave it to him. He seemed to like it!

WINTER SOLDIER SKETCH

Another Winter Soldier sketch. Really like drawing this guy. Someone asked for this commission at Thought Bubble last weekend (which was fantastic, by the way) but didn't come back to pick it up. Ah well, I'm sure someone will buy it at some stage.

Oh, and it seems I won a couple of awards today. Thanks very much to all who voted for me :)

MAC



Man, I loved MacGyver back in the day. One thing I especially liked was how he would never use guns (I'm remembering that correctly, right?)

Anyway, I just saw Skyfall and thought it was excellent, so mixed up Mac and the Skyfall promo poster.

Chewing gum and a paperclip

I guess im no aongus mcgyver this is all i could rustle up - also sorry for posting on your day stephen!

MacGyver Week 2

Just heard the great news from Will that Issue 1 of his MacGyver book has sold out, and is getting a second printing. We figured a second MacGyver week was in order to celebrate!

My secret shame is that I've never actually seen an episode of the show, so have no idea what it's about, save for an inventy dude with a mullet. One thing I did garner from the snippets I saw as a kid was that he was rather fond the these sorts of constructive items.

DREDD


Did this commission at New York Comic Con just over a week ago. Pretty happy with it! Incidentally, that recent Dredd 3D film was absolutely excellent!

Star Wars

Here's a minor character design I did for the Star Wars book I'm drawing right now. His blaster is based on one of the Jawa's guns and his pants clearly came from Boba Fett's wardrobe.

D.I.C.E. Panels

Just wanted to give people a heads-up about the two panels at the D.I.C.E. show about upcoming Mick-related books!

Will's Celtic Warrior: The Legend of Cú Chulainn panel is on at 11:30 on the sunday, and the Half Past Danger panel with myself (Mooney) and Jordie Bellaire is on at 1:30, also on the sunday. Please drop by to listen and have a chat regarding the projects if ye feel the urge.

Here's the schedule for all of the panels; some GREAT stuff in there:
Really looking forward to the show now. Some fantastic guests going and a lot of good mates. Please do come along one and all for what is destined to be a savage show altogether. The lads at The Big Bang deserve massive praise and respect for putting a show of this class together, one that can compete with the other big international staples. The value of having a show of this caliber here in Ireland CANNOT be over-stated, so please do come along and show yer support.
It's gonna be great.

Boom

Working on Steed and Peel with Boom written by Mark Waid and Caleb Monroe. Issue 1 is out today.
