HI-EX POSTER ART
























This is artwork I did for next February's Hi-Ex in Inverness. I went to last years event and had an absolutely brilliant time. Unfortunately, I won't make it to the next event, but i was flattered to be asked to do the poster for it.

I really liked Rufus Dayglo's poster for last years event, so I kept it somewhat similar (ie, bold white background with characters to one side). Haven't drawn Judge Dredd too much so it was fun to have a try at him again. I also got to draw Tank Girl for the first time too, that was fun. I suppose the same could be said for the Loch Ness Monster.....

I love that, Dec - you draw a great Magistrate Grudge, er, Judge Dredd. I'd really like to go to Hi-Ex but I doubt my finances will stretch to it (the kids are demanding a Nintendo Wii for Christmas).

Great pic Dec. This is the second Dredd I've seen from you(first being a commission on this blog) and you've nailed it twice. Your style is actually perfect for his gritty look, you should do a couple pages to show 200AD. Also, excellent attitude on Tank Girl.
Nessie reminds me of the when he was a bouncer in vegas at the end of that classic simpsons ep.
Which is a good thing.

Tim Skinner was mentioned in "Lying in the Gutters". Apparently, Marvel will snap you up before issue 2.

Ah thanks guys. It seems to be getting a good reaction all round. Quite happy with it myself....

Hey David, thanks for the heads up on the Gutters thing. Gonna stick a post up about that soon.
