Christmas snatches time from me once again, so you mjst live with the newly unveiled cover to Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #1, which launches in January. MTMTE is my last TFs for the foreseeable, bar covers, and will hopefully keep the buzz generated by Death of Optimus Prime alive. Still love those robots though. Hope Slanty Jaws brings me one this year.
Have a homage-tastic Nickmas, Micklickers! X

I remember the day we did our first one really clearly. I was in 3rd year college, we both talked about wanting to be in Wizard magazine someday.
I love seing the progression in these drawings. Love it. Its pretty unlikely that we'll still be friends in about 2 years, but if we somehow make it s far as when we reach our 60's, then I think this would be the coolest coffee-table book ever.
Heres to another great year. This year I finished up a 29 issue run on Farscape, which was a blast and is responsible for birthing my comic book career. I ended up truely with a second home in New York. Most importantly, as the year draws to an end, I've signed up for 3 pretty big and exciting books. One should be obvious enough, the second, will be a high profile Image book, which is about to be announced, and thirdly, my own book Cú Chulainn will be out at the end of the year, launching definately across Europe (The contract is signed with a big European publisher)

Apparently, IDW's 'The Death of Optimus Prime' is slithering out a week earlier than scheduled. So this milestone issue will be out on December 21st Stateside, and the 22nd everywhere else hopefully.
To tide thee over until then, check out this panel from the book. Mmm, doomy.

Hey look! A brand new sketch that I coloured and everything!
Doing Northlanders and Thunderbolts at the same time was rough, so I wasn't putting in the work in my sketches. Now that I'm back on one book, I wanted to try a bit harder, even trying my hand at colour. Dunno if this turned out well; I think I might depend on Jordie to make my stuff look good these days. Anyway, was worth a try.

Here's something I just finished inking ten minutes ago, a little frontspiece I'll be using for part of a design element on the first issue of my book. Sorry if people are sick of simply seeing image after image from this project on here, but I'm literally spending every waking moment working on it so I have nothing else to offer!

"What time is it?"
"Is half past fuckin danger, thats what time it is." BOOOOM
All kidding aside, this looks great. I've just seen the coloured cover and it looks like the love child of Drew Strewzan and Adam Hughes. Gorgeous stuff

I get a lot of sketch requests for Ghost these days. Him, Man-Thing and Songbird are probably the most popular sketch requests I get actually. Anyway, here's a scan of a recent Ghost sketch I did at the Lille Comics Festival. Really like how this one came out. Thanks to Emilien for sending it on!

I shall be doing one of my rare appearances outside of my hovel this coming week, for next Friday marks the start of the Wexworlds Sci Fi festival in Wexford Town, which is where I'm from, innit? I have my now-annual mini-display of work at The Wexford Arts Centre (where the below shot, coloured by Josh Burcham, shall be available for all to marvel at) and am doing a couple of comic workshops, like what I used to do before I went legit. See www.wexworlds.net for details of what I'm up to and what other ace authors and experts you can harangue if you're in the neighbourhood.
To promote this though, I'm due to appear on live TV this coming Wednesday. Yep, I've finally made it to kids' TV, so I'll be wearing my tightest, reddest pair of trews. I'm on Elev-8 on RTE 2 sometime between 4 and 5pm, and rumour has it, drawing right there and then in front of your eyes and those of millions of dispossessed youngsters. So tune in, and, like, trend my name or something. #nicktightpants will do me.
(Psst: I know the line-art of this pic has been here before, but check out them hues, no?)

I've been getting Star Wars work quite regularly lately. Aside from this panel from the Han and Chewie story I've been working on another unnanounced Star Wars book. Can't wait to reveal what it is

Also I've been striken with a nasty sniffly bug.
And the dog ate my homework. etc.
This is a piece I did for a group exhibition my sister organised last year promoting breastfeeding.

This is a bit of background design from a personal project. I was trying to get a messy, cosy feel for this character's basement hideaway. I'll probably end up rendering this as a basic 3d model with SketchUp for reference as there's a lot of complex action that takes place here.

Ah, losing your laptop and harddrives to a virus 3 days before a deadline, leaving only the oldest, oddest images at your disposal for a blog. A fate befitting the winner of an ICN award.
On that note, thanks to everyone who gave me the nod and for your kind messages since.Delighted to see Bob and Dec get the love too.Ridiculous result, but a welcome one.More soon on it.

BETRAYAL OF THE PLANET OF THE APES #1 is out tomorrow, by Corinna Sara Bechko(Heathentown) and Gabriel Hardman(Hulk). It's also coloured by one Jordie Bellaire, whoever she is. Never heard of her.
Anyway, I've done variants for 3 issues; before I did them I did some rough doodles from various press photos and film posters, just to get a feel for how to draw the Apes from the book.
