Though the temptation to draw old mother zombie abroad in the night was great - we opted for the seance scene because it had all the main characters and the Gelth. Seance scenes are always tricky to draw ( I drew two or three pages of seance in my Terry Sharp book) . Luckily the *spirit* imbues some life into this static design.

I'll be at the Bristol Comics Expo this weekend 14th/15th May! You'll be able to find me mostly at the Panini booth where I'll be doing Dr Who monster sketches all weekend - well until sunday lunchtime at any rate. If you fancy a sketch pop by as early as you can and I'll pop you on the list. I'll also have some original art with me - comics and Time Team pics that will be for sale.
Hope to see you.

The Dark were the new Dr Who villians in Forever Dreaming ( the strip I've just drawn) . Conceived by writer Jonny Morris , he descibed them as villianous businessmen , practically silhouettes with psychedlic pinwheel glasses and sinister smiles. I knew immediatley what they should look like from this description and they were a huge reason I enjoyed drawing this strip! Here's pg 10 of the first part of the story. You can see that the pencil layouts are merely suggestions - from these I would draw directly with ink , taking the *raw* to a publishable quality. It's important when drawing comics to keep that energy alive - not fall in love with your own drawing and overwork things. The rain of course added an extra mood to the villians who never opened their brollies! The conclusion of this story is on the shelves now - I hope you enjoyed it.
