Between the Panels

At the end of last year, I had a little chat with fellow comics person Jack Hugh Baker.

I wanted to experiment with how to layout an interview transcript as a comic so I formatted it as if we were on a podcast.

This is also the first time I’ve tried to emulate classic comic style colouring using CMYK halftones, I enjoyed the limited colour palette, I think it’ll be something I try again in the future. Maybe in a more analogue form like risograph.

Duzida Back-Up Comic

I’ve been using the printed version of Duzida to write short comics that add something to world.

Here’s the comic from issue 2 which takes place around a year before the issue 1 begins.

I’m working on one for issue 3 as I write this about the Metazurians reaching Earth for the first time. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about you can read Duzida here) They’re also a good excuse for me to experiment with layouts, which will be more apparent with the next one.

Music

Hello,

I’ve been dabbling in making music recently. It’s something I’ve always been interested in but never really pursued in any way, so I’ve started messng around with production in my downtime. I don’t really know where I’m going with it, it’s just something fun to do!

I’ve been using the name Anaseed for this project (which used to be my handle/ pen name if you didn’t know that already) but now it’s more of just a nickname. I thoght I’d use it as a way to keep it seperate from my art (plus I still use the name Anaseed when I made things that doesn’t really fit the Bozo Robo brand)

LIME

Every now and then I’ll draw this character. Her name is Lime. But I can’t seem to decide what to do with here, perhaps it’ll be nothing?

I’ve not written her in to a story, or even thought about her in a way that adds context to her existence.
The only things that are certain is that she’s always around old tech, and that Koala thing.

BANDIT! Preview

If you follow me on social media I’m sure you’ve noticed a lot of posts about a certain Stetson wearin’ hero, if not, my last blog post was dedicated to BANDIT!

The time for us to start making some big announcments is getting closer and closer and as it does, Vince and I figured it would a good idea to let you all have a chance to read some of what we’ve been working on.

So I present to you the first 10 pages of BANDIT!

Klimate Kaijin

Here’s some illustrations of monsters based on various threats the climate.

These are for a card game, but it’s not set in stone, they may well get used for something else. For now, I’ll be mocking up some playing cards and something that vaguely resembles rules. Once I make further progress with this project I’ll be sure to share here on the blog.

I’ve got a few more that I’m working on, these are the ones that currently finished.

Indoors

Earlier in the year I printed a collection of a diary comics that covered October 2020 – mid January 2021.

I hadn’t printed any comics since around September 2019 as, obviously, I’d not been attending Comic Cons. I printed partly because I wanted and parly becuase I had to, these comics were for a uni project (I got an A by the way)

I was planning to keep the comics running on Instagram as something quick that I could work on everyday, but as the UK has been in a never-ending lockdown I decided to put it on hold. There’s only so many strips I can draw about myself staring out of my living room window.

But now as things are… not getting back to normal, but there’s at least the option to do something other than travel further than couple miles from home, which means I may actually have some stuff write about soon. You can follow my diary comic on IG @bozodiary if you don’t already.
