Zow!

Zow!

I realise that if I'm every going to get more than the moderate attention for my work that I currently receive, then I'm going to have really step up to the plate and make a huge effort. With this in mind, I've been spending a neck-hurting amount of time with pencil, pen and computer, producing works like the one above. My plan is to start bring this level of detail into my comic strips. If that doesn't grab people's eyeballs then I don't know what will.

Uncle Bob Adventures

Uncle Bob Adventures

I've put together an ebook, featuring four Uncle Bob stories, and using the fab software at Myebook. Do feel free to give me some feedback. Cheers!

Comic book series by writer/artist Darryl Cunningham. Uncle Bob tells extraordinary tales of his long and adventurous life to his young nieces. Thrill to these colourful stories of Victorian London, the Wild West, darkest Africa, and the Earth's Core. Winner of the Golden Monkey Best Comic Award (which I've just made up). Cheers!

The Streets

This drawing took me all night to do. The guy lying on the pavement is probably me, collapsed after hours at the drawing board. The pic has has a nice grimy urban look that reminds me of Manchester.

I've been drawing Batman a lot lately. I don't know why.

Character Designs

Character designs for Super-Sam. Here I was sketching out ideas for the villain, Dr. Meridian.. In the end I didn't go with any of these designs, but I do plan to use them in a future storyline.

Grey Aliens and Fairies

This an extended and re-coloured version of an illustration I did which appeared in a recent issue of Paranormal Magazine. The article was about the parallels between folklore stories of fairy folk and alien visitations in modern times.

While I personally don't believe in the objective reality of these supernatural beings or their space-age counterparts, I am fascinated by what these continuing myths say about the human mind, and its ability to join the dots and create pictures that are not even there. If there is real magic in the world, then it exists in the human imagination. It's more than possible to make such fancies real. Writers and artists do this every day. But let's not confuse the fabulous world of the mind and its constructs, with the bricks and mortar real world we live in. The use of logic and science demonstrates, very well, the clear separation between the two.
