Well, in theory… as the comic is more or less an imaginary one!
In fact, this image is a reprise of a piece from 2016—seen here with tones and here in colour—featuring Jenni & Marie (and friend). Although only three years old, I recently did a new version… because, it ain’t bad but it coulda been better.
Anyhow, compare away! I probably will colour it, but I don’t think I shall bother with tones; it was something I was experimenting with fleetingly back in ’16 (a kind of electronic version of the old Duo-Shade paper they no longer make)—and I think it also masked some of the finishing deficiencies, which hopefully are rectified in this new version.
I was working on the art for some new Club Vamporama pages—an initial run of five, followed by a bunch more. Some of this stuff has been scripted for quite a while, and in fact what would be page five of this sequence was originally started and abandoned back in February 2013! (New version will be all-new, I stress. BTW, the four pages leading up to it, including the two below, are newer scripts anyway.)
Anyhow, the complete strip may or may not be finished at some point, so this might be all you get for the foreseeable, I’m afraid…
Incidentally, these are the first two complete pages that use my new font. Let me know what you think, but be gentle!! 🙂
I’m calling it 2019 because I wanted to revisit a piece I did back in February 2011. I just liked the concept, but the execution was really quite poor—at the time a few people were positive about it, but one person was quite critical… and basically they were right, whatever their motives. It was very amateurish indeed.
Well… see for yourself here. And compare and contrast with the new version…
Did I get better? Just a little bit? I think everyone is entitled to improve, yes?
Follow-up to this posting. Here’s the inked, toned & coloured cover artwork for the in-progress first PRINT issue of Club Vamporama.
Yep, here’s the inked & toned cover artwork for the in-progress first PRINT issue of Club Vamporama. The finished cover will be full colour… this is all you get for now! 🙂
Okay! This is the second and final strip celebrating the tenth birthday of Club
Comicana Vamporama. It’s also the last new J&M strip to go on here for a while, probably, as I’m working on Club Vamporama #1, an actual PRINT comic. The cover is finished; I might post a preview sometime.
More later, etc. Hope you enjoy the comic… it’s a hint of things to come…

New comics! As some of you know, I stopped doing comics after February 2013. During the hiatus I did some other things, including a few T-shirt designs. Anyhow, the strip pitch idea I mentioned recently was the first comics I’d done since Feb ’13; but right now I’m moving towards a number of new projects, including regular Webcomics and a revival of Club
Yup, Club Com/Vamp is, as of June 2016, exactly ten years old! To celebrate, there will be two new strips; firstly, a reworking of an older strip, below—to be followed shortly by an all-new one! As ever, the (revised) script is by Liz B and the art is by Yours Truly…
The original version of this strip can be seen here—compare & contrast!!
It’s been a while again. But this strip was a chance to give a nod to Mr Bowie’s return to music, plus other silliness. With apologies to Bryan Talbot!
Art & plot: Cheezy-Peez; Script: Lizbeth B
Yep! And by the way, this is the first strip that is fully scripted by Liz B (I’ve adapted from her notes or passages from screenplays previously)—that’ll be why the writing suddenly got better! :b We have some cool plans afoot, anyhow, so stay tuned, etc…

This has been more or less done for a week, but needed to finish it up. And then, I had a disaster and the monster on last panel got severely water damaged—so I had to perform a last-minute repair job. Very annoying. But it came out okay I guess!

Comicana is back by popular demand! No, really. Well, work on graphic novel variant is stalled for the time being. This one is a quickie, a bit different & looser in style. So tell me if it’s a mistake or not.

Cover pencils for mooted Club
Comicana Vamporama comic book.
Yeah, two in a week! This was fairly quick & improvised. If it confuses, don’t worry about it… Liz has a ton of plots waiting and I’m just having some fun with it.
Art: Cwiss; Plot: Liz takes no responsibility for this one……
No, REALLY! A new Comicana. I’ve had something of a mental block on drawing this one for some time so it was good to get it out finally…
