I'm now very close to the end of this particular Super Sam and John of the Night story. After which there will be a break while I work on other projects. This webcomic has been a long haul for me. At, mostly, one page a week on the Forbidden Planet blog, it's taken over a year to work my way through the narrative. Not what I ever set out to do, but the story grew and grew in the telling, until I began to wonder whether I would ever reach the end. It's been well worth the effort though, as I've learned a great deal about graphic story telling, especially in terms of colour.
A couple of years ago, I had a go at building the type of scenes often depicted in my drawings, bringing them into 3D in the form of paper and card sculptures. It's been a while, but I'd like to have another attempt at this, as I'm sure I could improve on the idea.
Here's a couple of photos of the last sculpture I did. Sadly, these were never glued together or expected to be permanent. They only existed as long as it took me to photograph them.
Several different realities collide in the Outernational Hotel's famous ballroom.
A few things to look out for in this illustration: Superman, The Bottle City of Kandor, giant cup of coffee, pencil, glasses, cows, Tarzan, Sam of the Sun, John of the Night, blue ladder, postbox, loads of other stuff.
