Wetworks #9 came out and I still haven`t been arrested by the comic art police! Yes, I`m not overley pleased with how it looks, but then I wasn`t really expecting to like it much. I had to do it so fast I can still feel the heat generated coming from my drawing desk! Pencilling and inking one page a day can be fun but then you realize folks are going to see what you`ve produced and that`s when the fun stops. But it`s done now and I can move on.
Pauline and I went for our last scan and found out what variety of baby we should expect...it`s a GIRL! (most probably) I can`t begin to tell you how it felt...well actually I can...it felt almost impossibly amazing! I had an overwhelming sense of peace. What an incredible feeling to know you`re bringing a little girl into the world. Since we got this news I`ve noticed the strange feeling that armour is forming around me...a sword and shield are developing to protect my little family. I don`t doubt this is quite normal for someone who sees the world as a crazy mixed up mad house and I have to say I`m delighted that this protective urge has formed in me. The odd thing is that with this sense of peace I should start to form war like protection around us. A product of living in this time of unbalenced insanity I guess.
Since completing Wetworks I`ve been getting ready to start my next job which is again for Wildstorm, although at this stage I can`t say what. News on that later.

The Bristol comic con was fun. Small but fun. It was great to re-contact old pals and to catch up with the world of comics after spending so much time away. Being part of the industry that I love so much is so sweet and exiting. I feel so lucky that I can just walk back into this world and for folk to accept my return with open arms. Thanks to all those who welcomed me back with such warmth. Cheers guys!
