Here's the last of the documented sketches from the 2D Festival a few weeks ago.

Really happy with this one. Probably the only decent Silver Surfer drawing i've ever done. With these sketches i tried to get as experimental as i could, so i drew the shape of the surfer and his board and used the negative space to define it, using layers of greywash to get some sense of 'depth' in the space background.

The person looking for a sketch asked me to draw them as an Infected, since i'm drawing 28 Days Later and all, so that's what i went and done. Thought it might need some deinition when i finished it, so drew a thick black outline around the figure. Wish i hadn't now. Looked better without it. Ah well, live and learn i guess.

Definitely one of the weirdest requests ever; Michael Jackson as a zombie, a la his Thriller video. Drew this from memory. Haven't checked to see how accurate is is since, but i think it's fairly close.

I quite like this one too. A girl saw the Local drawing i had done for the Eclectic Micks blog and asked me to draw a girl like that. Took me a while to figure out a composition i was happy with, but it was worth it; i like how this one came out in the end.

Right; that's it for the 2D Festival sketches. Have no idea what i'm gonna post next in a couple of days. Will have to come up with somethin' i guess.

The surfer one is REALLY good.

Knew it was Jacko straight away. Not as mad as Will's zombie Yoda I saw at one con.

Good stuff. Really like The Surfer.

I asked Will for that one at the Dublin Comics Con a few years back!

Small world.
And that Surfer is the bees knees,Dec-Mex.

I think you were born to draw the Silver Surfer, Dec. That is just great!
