Hello there. This week i'm using my sketch to plug something by someone i know.


This time it's the trade paperback of MYSTERIUS THE UNFATHOMABLE, the best mini-series of last year that you may not have heard about. Published by Wildstorm, Mysterius follows the adventures of the wizened magician as he breaks-in his new assistant Ella. It's written by Marvel mainstay Jeff Parker and illustrated by Canada's secret weapon Tom Fowler (not forgetting some great colours by Dave McCaig). It's a great, funny read but it's also one of the best drawn stories of 2009; a damn fine showcase for the great cartooning Tom is renowned for. I can not stress enough how good this book is. If you're curious about the art, check out Tom's fantastic work on his blog.

The collection isn't out until 3rd/4th of March, but if you order the book through here then you can get it at discount with a FREE print signed by both writer and artist.

You came here for art and you're leaving with a good deal. What more could you ask for? Order now!

I feel like an info-mercial. Dirty.

Lovely colouring on this, I like the little bit of pink on his nose. A fine salute to Tom Fowler's fantastic art on this book.

Goddammit Dec, this is fantastic, both drawing and colours.
Stop making the rest of us look so bad.

Thanks lads.

Yeah Thomps, when i was colouring i knew there was something missing; the reddened nose, so i just knocked it in in colour. Worked well, i think.

Mooney; sorry man, but with *some* people missing days, someone had put in some work and try pick up the slack. As you did with yesterdays post.
