Here's a piece that I've made as part of Patrick Crotty's venture for Helsinki Comics Festival.  It'll be made into a Risograph print and sold alongside other amazing prints too.  Patrick's organising a small Sci-Fi comic anthology, and he's got some damn good people working on it (including the man himself!).  I'm pretty excited to be a part of it!  More news on it soon.

The picture originally had a throwaway concept to it, but as I was drawing it I fleshed out the story more in my mind.  I might write some more for this lady when I've finished work on my current comic project.  I was going to add the quote "History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it", since I love the ambiguity of it in a narrative sense, but since it's a Churchill quote I just feel a little uncomfortable about it!


  1. This is so baller. Get me a print and I'll pay for it, thats how much I like it!.

    Only crit is that whatevers going on in the bottom left (a sign) is confusing the composition/picture a bit. Also her trident(?) could come into the picture a bit more, it dissapears a bit into the background because its mostly black.

    Cool stuff.

  2. haha, cheers! I might try and get some prints sent over here, so I'll keep you posted!

    I totally agree though- my original plan was to tone the piece (which I didn't have time for), and if I'd done that I would've pushed back the motorbike in the bottom left, and used it to bring out the trident in the top right, just generally making things clearer. It was a fast turnaround on the piece too, so I had to wing it on the composition! I'll work on it for next time though, so cheers!
