This was the fruits of my labour at SNAG live art event last night. Lotsa fun, as always. It is called “Haas Haus”, and in the ticket draw, my good friend Vince ended up walking away with it.  Thanks and congrats to all those who came and participated!

I’ve always loved Spirou.
It’s been terrific, of late, with the new art team of Yoann & Vehlmann. ("Alerte aux Zorkons" is particularly good.)
But one of the very best bande dessinées I’ve read in the past decade is "Le groom vert de gris" by Olivier Schwartz & Yann. So you can imagine my excitement at finding out that they have a new Spirou book coming out: "La femme léopard”.
So I’ve channeled some of my excitement into drawing Spirou and Spip.

Mikey never got a share of the TMNT residuals.P.S. I (predictably) hate the new Michael Bay designs.
A piece I did for a show last May. Not my best work. But they can’t all be winners, I guess.

Here’s Rupert Bear and Bill Badger!
Haven’t drawn for a week & a half, so thought I’d get into practice again before work starts.
