The Italian Dish

This weeks Eat Me! preview is from The Italian Dish was written by Luke Bayliss and illustrated by Harry Griffin-Hayes. They also collaborated on a gritty comic for our last anthology, Science Fiction Octuple Feature.

We're just getting the last things sorted for Bristol Expo. This weekend I've been cutting out stickers of Catherine Reda's Bunnies which were featured in the last blog post.

Thanks again!

Bunnies Incorporated Into Various Food Items

When I opened the e-mail containing the files for this comic I think I nearly died of cute overload. Bunnies Incorporated Into Various Food Items by Catherine Reda is the second comic featured in Eat Me!. Every time I think I have located the cutest food item I look back and realise the others are just as cute, if not cuter. Cat has recently joined Tumblr and has been posting lots of wonderful comics, illustrations and other handmade things.

Thanks again

Many Years Ago

The first preview page is from Many Years Ago by Jack Davies. I posted some of his design and development work a couple of weeks ago. The food theme has been interpreted in really different ways by everyone in the group and Jack's stone age story seemed like the perfect introduction to the book. 

Jack kindly offered to draw title pages for everyone's comics in the book and this is his alternative cover design in full colour.

I'll be back later in the week with the second preview page :)

Eat Me!

Sugary sweet bunnies, a deliciously grim detective tale, turf wars of fiendish butchers and food wars on national TV! Just some of the stories to be found in Eat Me! a food-themed anthology from Inspired Comics. Sit down and feed your brain with six original comics, from light snacks to juicy steaks, there’s something for every taste.

Hello! Sorry I took a break from blogging so I would have a bit of extra time to sort the files and things. I'm pleased to say the files have been sent to the printers on schedule and hopefully we'll have the books ready for Bristol Expo in May. I'm very excited. The cover illustration and title picked by the group is by Sarah Fogg and the anthology includes comics by Jack Davies, Catherine Reda, Harry Griffin-Hayes, Luke Bayliss, Sammy Borras, Sarah fogg and Lily-rose Beardshaw. I'll be posting preview pages and some more development work over the next couple of weeks. 

Big thanks to Jack Davies for the extra title illustrations in this anthology 

Thanks for reading!

Food Anthology - Sammy Borras Design Work

This is something I drew for fun while writing my submission for the food anthology. Some of the characters have appeared in a webcomic short story called Smoothie Wars

These are some more of the character sheets I was pleased with

I think this is the first time I've needed to create 'cake sheets' for a comic. This food anthology just makes me want to eat cake every day.

Thanks again for reading, I'll have more design work from the rest of the group as soon as I can.
