Sir Christopher Lee , DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS finally rests

I've been a Hammer Horror fan since before the term was coined - back then we were just Hammer fans. Sir Christopher Lee obviously loomed large in the pantheon of their films and no more than as in Dracula Prince of Darkness ( his second outing as the Count). Lee brings a brilliantly feral performance to the character in this film in which he speaks no lines. Legend has it he read the script and thought it so awful he refused to speak his lines. Wether this is true or not it makes for another wonderful Hammer myth for fans to discuss. Below is a drawing I did for Little Shoppe of Horrors ( with newly added Technicolor). Dracula is about to force Diana to drink of his blood from a scratch on his chest. This idea originally came from Bram Stoker's book Dracula.

I'd like to thank him for all the entertainment he has given me over the years in his hundreds of roles. Rest in Peace finally.

Recently some covers I did for Marvel UK in the late 1990s were returned to me including art I did for free cover stickers and character pages. Prices can be found below. As a kid I loved Marvel comics so it was a blast drawing these covers! Unfortunately after awhile the publisher felt my art wasn't detailed enough and the cover commissions stopped. A fun period nonetheless with all covers coloured by John Burns.

I never quite understood the line ' I could Cocoa' that the Doctor utters as he's swept out of the Tardis in Junkyard Demon 2 ! Alan Barnes and I came up with the idea of doing a sequel to Junkyard Demon in a pub around the corner from Marvel UK's offices in Arundel Street , London. Whilst Alan *sold*the idea to Doctor Who Magazine editor Gary Russell , I drunkenly slid down the office plan chest. Gary loved the idea and the strip saw print in the Doctor Who Yearbook 1996 alongside a return strip for Beep the Meep drawn by the superior Martin Geraghty and written by upcoming DWM editor Gary Gillatt.

Below are the remaining pages of original art I have left plus designs I did for the main villians Joylove McShane and his dim witted assistant Stinker. Note that this was Stinker's first design before I redesigned him whilst drawing the strip - a not uncommon practice with me. The strip pages are 570mm by 370mm and coloured with Dr Martins Liquid Watercolours. All the art is priced and I can be contacted at if interested.

                                         Page 1 - SOLD

                                         Page 2 - £150.00 + £8.00 P@P

                                         Joylove design - £30.00 + £8.00 P@P

                                         Stinker design -  SOLD

SHADOWDANCE is a 25 part daily strip starring Terry Sharp and Elspeth Sasdy who starred in THE FACELESS : A Terry Sharp Story graphic novel

SHADOWDANCE was flash animated and briefly saw life on the Fangoria website. Since then it's not been seen. I'd quite like it to feature in Terry's next book - when that will be is anyones guess but I thought I'd share day 1 sans lettering.
