Hello. Back to work after San Diego. Unfortunately, picked up an infection in my foot while over there so have been pretty much out of comission. Managed to get some Freak Show layouts done, but nothing of consequence. Managed to get some character shots for the upcomming Hero Killers mini-website. Andy, the Hero Killers writer, is really pushing the book and asked if i could do a bit of art for the site.
Hey, if it helps sell the comic, i'm in.

Here's what's done so far

Hello all!

Posting this from San Diego. Its hot.
Went 30 or so hours without sleep cuz i couldn't sleep while travelling, which was not fun. Just up. Pancakes for breakfast. Things are starting well. Now begins the hunt for cider and American girls. Don't think i'll get used to all these american accents. Feels like i'm living in a TV.

Yeah, i'm halfway through Freak Show#1 and still haven't drawn any of the main characters yet, so here's a glimpse of some of them; James, Susan and Jack.

Here's some pages from a sci-fi i started work on but never got to finish.

Designing the tech and alien stuff was fun. Had a double page spread in there too, i'll try track it down and post it.

These are some pages i was working on as a spidey sample. Spider-man is in them, obviously. Got to design a Spider-slayer too, which was a bit of fun.


I've been known to dabble in the mystic arts of computer colouring. Not very talented at it, but competant. Case in point;

Now, here's something to look at. It's a couple of pages from my new book, Freak Show #1 (Vol.2). The covers are by the lovely Mr. Sean Philips (actually, i don't know if he's lovely, i don't know him, but the man sure can draw).

It's written by Rob Curley and publised by Atomic Diner.

Won't be out till September, so keep your eye out for it!

Right so, lets get this started.
My first publised work is out right now.
Its's called Hero Killers and it's published by Moonface Press.
Click on this fella to see the preview on the Moonface Press website.
I'm deligted to announce the book has been picked up for distribution by
Diamond, so there's no excuses for not ordering it in at your local comic shop
.......unless of course, you just don't want to.
Well, this seems to be working. I'll pretty much be posting artwork regularly on this blog, so if anyone's interested, stay tuned. Thanks
Heelo. Or should i say "hello". My name is Declan Shalvey. Im a comic book artist by hobby, but soon by trade. I'm adventuring into the world of blog. Let's see if it works.
