Hey there pop-pickers! Yup, it's your friendly(ish) agoraphobic(not really) munkiman here, back from the lands of Nowhere-Inparticular with tales of nothing much!

I've been a bit absent, huh? Don't worry, it's not you - you don't smell funny or anything. I just haven't been feeling too chatty too often this past year, so I haven't been chatting ... and that's about it really. Still been working away on a few odds & ends tho, so I'm gonna try to get around to posting a few bits this week. Starting with a handlful of Butterfly Gate pages.

Butterfly Gate is a great project I've been working on for a while. Lovely linework and almost totally text-free, it's like nothing I've ever worked on. Anyone who happens to be at Thought Bubble in Leeds this weekend (Nov 23-24) should keep an eye out for Improper Books table (New Dock Hall, t.51-53) where it'll finally be launched. The first book contains the first two installments of what promises to be a very interesting world and story, and I'm delighted to finally be able to crow about it. I'm really pretty happy with my work on this book - can't wait to get my hands on the next batch of pages. Improper have a few other books worth checking out, and some more in the works - keep an eye on 'em! www.improperbooks.com/

Well, I promised Luis I would do another wee collab with some lines of his sometime soon (whenever I next have free time again), and your inks complement his lines really well, so I think I might just go with this one. Could be fun!  ^_^
