ORCHESTRAS

What a thrill it was this week to work alongside the magnificent Scottish Ensemble to present a new comic story entitled, “Orchestras”.
The event was the latest DeeCAP (Dundee Comics Art Performance) held at the Dundee Comics Creative Space, and featuring fellow local comics creators Zu Dominiak, Andy Herd, Damon Herd (no relation), Norrie Millar, and myself!


I took the opportunity to premiere a new comic I made specially for the event, designed to work as a comic in its own right and as a performance piece accompanied by the Scottish Ensemble.

Here is how it turned out on the night. I hope you enjoy it…
I think you can see how much I enjoyed hearing the music from that vantage point. A truly exciting event to take part in.
Many thanks to Tom Stewart of That Comic Smell podcast for filming.

THAT COMIC SMELL: Jack Kirby Appreciation continued...


The new episode of That Comic Smell is now online.
Have a listen at iTunes, Soundcloud and YouTube.

From the website:
“We continue our appreciation for Jack one more time.
We discuss what the publishers have done for his birthday celebrations. Also what some of our particular "Best" moments of Kirby are.
We run as a 3 man team for about the first 20 minutes waiting for everyone else to arrive, in the time we talk about the great "Ann Nocenti" , the general layout and folks that were at the Glasgow comic con. We also speak about the elusive Previews catalogue and Giuseppe has a run in with a mystery shop online.
All this and more on the only podcast to bring you Kirby crackle in the ears... think about how that works for a second.
