Me and my four year old daughter too our dog, Boo, for a walk recently, and my little girl told me a story about Scooterdog. It involved penguins and a knitted jumper.
I couldn't resist drawing Scooterdog, and it will soon be on my daughter's wall.
No idea if there'll be any more Scooterdog, but there will be some more collaborations with my daughter. Keep watching.

There's a story to go with this picture, based on a childhood memory.
There's a few memories I've considered turning into comics. I don't think they'll be rewarding reads, it's really just for me.
This, never really happened, of course, but it does try and capture a feeling I had about skateboarding, even if the actually skateboarding didn't work out so well.
I'm happy with the colour version, but think the b&w one might be more successful, so I'm posted it too.

Here's two quick sketches I did to get a feel for how I'd like to draw both characters.Dredd is fairly standard, but I've gone for the skinny menacing look rather than the steroid version that crept in during the late 80s. Not sure about the Eagle, here. My main problem is balancing simplifying parts and keeping the detail of others.Slaine is based on the look of his first year. Despite the skill of the people involved, I don't care for the more heavy metal Slaine.
