May 19, 2014: It's been a very busy few months with lots of comics and game illustration work, which I'll cover in future updates. For starters, I illustrated an 8-page Robo-Hunter story in the 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special, due out on May 28. Script by the awesome Alec Worley!

October 11, 2013: And here's a PDF copy of this year's 24 Hour Comic, which extended into a 42 Hour epic: Alive, Alive, Alive!

September 17, 2013: Since the Issuu reader has added a bunch of complications and sign-in requirements, I've reposted a bunch of my short comics stories in PDF format. Here's the list:

  Need To Know
  24 Hour Comics: Our World, Young Nick, Commedia
  6-12 Hour Comics: Labyrinth, The Black Cat, My Rise and Fall
  A Perspective Primer

September 12, 2013: Ace animator Sony Green has cut together an animated trailer based on the public preview version of Gesualdo, Prince of Madness. Content advisory for sex, violence, and other opera stuff!

Meanwhile, I'm doing a bunch of robot designs for the upcoming roleplaying game Mekton Zero, and game designer Mike Pondsmith has been previewing some of the concept sketches on the game's Kickstarter updates page.
