Marie is a girl with the gift of understanding, who is often misunderstood.
I guess now is as good a time as any to announce that it’s official: My graphic novel For the Love of God, Marie! is being published by Myriad Editions in 2016. I signed the contract last week, the script is done, now I just gotta get to work on the pages!
This is not the final artwork but it’s pretty close: I’m going to be doing the whole book in limited colour palettes so it’ll look a little different in the end. I’ll be posting updates on each stage and previews of the art over the next year or so here on my site so I hope you all look forward to seeing Marie! come to life, slowly but surely.
I’m also putting together a mailing list for info about the book; if I don’t already have your email and you’re interested in news about the eventual publication date, pre-orders, launch party etc, please send me your email info! You can comment on this post or send me an email at teahermit@hotmail.co.uk.
Thanks everyone who has already offered their congratulations/well dones/dude that’s awesomes on this fantastic news. I really appreciate how much you’re all looking forward to my first full length graphic novel, and I’ll do my best to make it a really enjoyable book!

the Dog is a staffordshire bull terrier who has so far been possibly the most trainable out of all the dogs me and Jam have known combined. She still has the odd moment when she decides to be bull headed, but seems to be finally settling in and is generally all round well behaved.

Staffy’s are king of the SERIOUSFACE.

Katatachi Basami Case

This is just based on the box it came posted in so it’s not perfect as I had to make it with the limited cardboard from it! This is a bit narrower than the actual case but is just handy to carry the sword in.

1: The box the sword was posted in

2: The box exploded out and cut with folding flaps.

3: Painted with acrylic

4: Marking out the details with designs I made on photoshop.

5: The details sheets.

6: Marked out with pins.

7: Penciled details.

8: Painted details in acrylic.

9: Painted details.

10: Additional stickers!

The strap is made from a luggage belt buckles and some strap material and I used foam inside to cushion the sword.

The box is designed to fold like a postal box rather than as a two sided case- and is kept closed with some velcro dots.

I really didn’t like the glove that came with the Ryuko costume I got- so I finally set out to make it. Probs will locate some silver duct tape, but as a first try it isn’t too bad!

This is my new dog.

Her name is Meatloaf.

Sorry for being quiet- I’ve just arrived back from hols and have a full time project gig on for a couple of months so comic work will be slow until it’s all sorted- I’m still going to all my cons and have managed to book London MCM again this October. People with commissions I’ll still be working on them but might be a bit slow until I know how my scheduling goes with everything [I’m hoping a few weekends will be free…]
