OK, so it's a fairly predictable premise but I wanted to draw Quentin's head on Ollie's body and a grumpy Ollie disgusted that he's now a wriggly worm.

Don't try this at home!
Now this is REALLY nerdy... I've discovered the most gorgeous notebooks to write and sketch out my ideas in. They're called Moleskine® (as used by Hemingway, Van Gogh and Picasso). I'm using the 240 Plain page 13x21cm acid free paper notebooks. Beautiful.

One of my all time favourite Sunday strips. Really pleased with the 'timing' in the last 3 panels. So satisfying when it all comes together like this. Wish every day could be the same.

So, back to colouring up the approved strips after a month of designing my sales brochure, finalising my syndication contract and preparing the presentation I have to give to the sales team in New York. Only 3 weeks away now.

New Website for Ollie and Quentin

A new website just for Ollie and Quentin. www.ollieandquentin.com It's a work in progress but you get the idea. Some links don't work yet, Eventually there'll be a shop section. The samples are just my favourites but will probably change to some that give new readers a good introduction to the feature.

8th August 2007: Signed Syndication Contract

BIG day today. Nearly 10 months after Brendan first contacted me I have FINALLY signed my syndication contract with King Features. This is mainly due to the agreement I had to reach with the RNLI before I could sign with Kings. My thanks to my lawyer Stu Rees www.stus.com for all his hard work.

Seemed an anticlimax actually signing it. Shouldn't there be cheering and bells, flags and trumpets? Instead I signed it as I was changing into my cycle shorts just before I biked home.
