XXX Neon - pt.2

Illustration idea for the back cover.

If you don't know what it is... don't ask.

XXX Neon - pt.1

A few posts ago you'll remember I illustrated a cover for James Andre's upcoming XXX NEON book that's coming out shortly (as soon as I get the artwork to James I'm guessing)... and here's the inside I'm proposing that'll spread from the inside front cover all the way to the back.

Click on the image above to see a larger version.

Not sure if I should leave it B&W, or tone it with one grey. I'm leaning toward the latter. Anyway, for now, I'll just complete the back cover sketch & it'll be done. I'll show it shortly.

(Sorry for the delay James.)

The pages are coming through steadily. Here's another finished page from the upcoming issue of DIGESTED.04.

I was late getting to the meet today, but the regulars were already into it when I walked in...

Melbourne comics heavy-weights were all around.

Jason Franks REALLY hates having his photo taken.

I twisted the arms of some of the guys to scribble a picture in my sketchbook. Curiously, none of them opted for the pens/markers I offered them, but instead, all borrowed a pencil from somebody. Anybody. What have people got against pens, man?

Colin Wilson

Trevor Wood

Greg Gates

Darren Close

Before scooting off with a passenger on his back, Tom Bonin sketched this nice piece...

The clock struck about 6pm, the meet-up ended, and a few of us continued into the city to celebrate Jason Franks' birthday at a local Taco Bill restaraunt.

Considering most of the guys began drinking at 2pm (at the meet), they were really tanked and happy by dinner.

Even Jason didn't mind having his picture taken... now that's saying something!

When Paul Bedford ordered the margarita, the waitress asked, "The regular size?", and PAul says, "Nuh, the big one!" (thinking it would be a reasonable step up)... but we didn't know there were only 2 sizes. A normal glass... and a one litre!

It was massive.

What a trooper!

Paul was everyone's bitch after that one litre margarita.
