Sketchy LI

….I was approached to contribute to a contemporary comic…

…fuck…it’s been an awfully long time since I’ve drawn sequentially and wasn’t quite sure I still had that skill set…

…dug out an old idea from 5 years ago and gave it a test drive…

…then they started talking about checking drafts and I got a confidence wobble and backed away quite quickly…

…seems things have got a lot more regimented since I was publishing…

…but hey, I’ve this plotted in case someone is less edity and I get over my own lack of confidence!….

…I’m pretty sure I know Doctors with computers who surf….

…(another of the strips I did for a General Practice newsletter that wanted strip cartoon’s about Doc’s & comp’s…the surfboard was optional).

Where Was I

…oh, that’s right…7 years ago I was just arriving back from the UK with a sketch book full of story ideas that I thought I should commit to paper…

…when, suddenly, I was distracted by a whole bunch of other ideas that just had to be drawn first….

…and then….
