Arty photoshop stuff

My first attempt at photoshop painting and I'm liking how it works. It's a nice change from colouring blue ducks too.

Bewley sketchpad 1

A few pages from my mini sketchbook. I'll put a few of these up every now and then in case anyone is interested. I'm not sure if this idea will get used. It still needs some work. For the moment I'll leave it to stew and come back to it later. I think I was trying to avoid the expected pop-up action that I initially wanted to draw. Maybe the toaster could be a theme...

I should really start by shouting about my comic strip a bit. The new Bewley website only went up recently after a long time sitting at the back of my computer waiting for finishing touches. It's there now though. Any comments are welcome on the guestbook in the site. Hope you like it.

Bewley features in the Express every Saturday and has done for about 6 years now. I'm in the process of trying to sort out a book deal and get something on the shelves. Although chance are that if I do get something out there it will probably only be available from the internet to begin with.
The strip is based around a family of blue birds (maybe ducks, I've never been too sure) - mum, dad, the twins and an egg. It's kept me busy for a long time now and I still enjoy drawing it. There's something very satisfying about having total control over their world, from idea to completion.
I'll probably try and put some sketches up from time to time as well as links to other cartoon sites that make me smile.

Happy plane crash

I check this website a lot Here's one of the videos posted recently. Really liked it. Not always been a fan of stop motion but it works perfectly here.
