World Book Day

It’s world book day! And to commemorate that fact I spent some of last night (after we’d finished the highway rat costume we were making for our son to go to school in) doodling some characters from some of my favourite/most memorable books.  (more…)

Hi! My name’s Phil and I’m a comicer. It’s been 18 days since my last comic…

I love drawing comics.

Recently, however, I’ve found myself in a bit of comicing funk. I think those of you reading this who are involved in comicing, webcomicing, art generally, know what I’m talking about. That feeling that I should be doing it, that I want to do it, but really can’t find the motivation. And the problem with drawing/art of any kind is that it’s something so intrinsically connected with emotions that when you’re not feeling it, it just doesn’t happen. (more…)

Ninja Phil & the Naughty Nine Vol. 2 – Ep 3 – Boys are back in town

OK, OK, I know that these single panel things don’t really advance the story but c’mon, you’ve got to admit, they are pretty epic! The boys are back in town people… why do I feel like these guys are going to muck things up somehow? This many kids in superhero outfits is bound to led to trouble.

Ninja Phil & the Naughty Nine Vol. 2 – Ep 2 – Boooorp

That’s right kids. The Flaming Fajita’s super power is farting… gross. Well there’s more to it than that, but essentially yes. Gross hey? Question is how does he light them because let’s be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a real person successfully do that. Most people who try just end up setting fire to their pants and embarrassing themselves. Anyway come back on Monday to see what happens!

Ninja Phil & the Naughty Nine Vol.2 – Ep 1 – The Return of the Titan

Look who’s back! If you’re fairly new to the comic J.T. also known as the Jamaican Titan was one of the original members of the team alongside Ninja Phil, Cheesecake Boy, the Super Haribo Brothers and the Incredible H (who is no longer with us 😥 ). If you’re looking for a recap J.T. first appeared in this episode and disappeared for some R&R in this one after she defeated King Knightmare. Anyway, you’ll find out what she and the Flaming Fajita have been getting up in the coming weeks, but with Cheesecake Boy laid up and the Incredible H blown up in outer space (yes that happened) Ninja Phil and the gang will be glad of the support… and I’m sure the readers will be glad there’s a bit of a feminine touch back in the comic!

That’s my girl

 We’d just been on a reasonable walk/scoot with the kids when this question was poised. Both children demonstrating their true characters. My son sticking with the filling of choice, the steady, safe option. My daughter… well she just loves cake. Only a 2 yr old would ask for cake in a sandwich. For the rest of us, it’s something we all quietly dream about but we never say. I say let’s all achieve our dreams today and eat cake for lunch. Marie Antionette would have wanted it that way.
