ST WERBURGHS ARTS TRAIL - 27th AND 28th SEPTEMBER ST WERBURGHS ARTS TRAIL - 27th AND 28th SEPTEMBER
Alright, folks, if you have not yet gathered that I was born in St Werburgh's, Bristol and that this is where my formulative comic years mind began....you haven't read the blog!
Anyway, the St. Werburgh's Art Trail needs organisers or volunteers. It is important that these grass-roots art events keep going and as Europe's Green City of 2015 where better to hold such an event -the photo below is of the St. Werburgh's Eco Village -if you are as old as me and know the area well, this is an improvement on the 1960s!
Anyway, I know there are a lot of artists in Bristol and I'm guessing more than a few are going to be in St. Werburgh's.
If you can help in any way please do!

Someone Asked How I Go About Drawing Comics.. Words Within Worlds, Lost Covers and Rare Small Press Comics
I found a disc that had "family photos pets etc" written on it. Being in a morbid mood I thought I'd see if there was anything that needed transferring to a flash USB stick.
I got a surprise. Well, for me. Photographs taken while I was working on two comics in May, 2005 -I could have sword it was much later but the photos are dated for that time! The first is the end products -Words Within Worlds, that became the first part of the Dr Morg Trilogy and had a limited run as a small press comic. This one has a white cover and others had a yellow card cover. Worth a few £s now. The other is the original A6 (A6 measures 105 × 148 millimeters or 4.13 × 5.83 inches) GoBo zine that I was handing out at the Bristol Spike Island event BUT thanks to a certain person sitting there saying "It's s***. Bin it, it really is s***!" a good few ended up in

Mercure Holland House Hotel & Spa, Bristol UK - 22nd November 2014
I Started Drawing Comics in St Werburgh's, Bristol Dalborn, Herman's Denkmal, Marchenwald, Roman Legions and strange Wildlife.....
....or, I'm getting a bit bored and old!
Above: the road through Dalborn. Not much change over the decades.
Dalborn is one of the 19 villages under the jurisdiction of the town of Blomberg in the state of Lippe, North Rhine-Westphalia. The previously independent village was incorporated under the municipal reform of 1st January, 1970. The village is located about 10 km northwest of Blomberg though the closest towns are the Hexenburgerstadt (Witch Town) of Lemgo and the old State City of Detmold.
Dalborn was founded in the 12th century as Waldhufendorf, a medieval widespread form of settleme

Journey Of The ID:The Dr Morg Trilogy
I'M A Professional. I Work For Money But CommentsAs much as I enjoy comments on my work (of which there are none here!) I do find it annoying that people see my work here and contact me privately to offer me work drawing 120-150 pages graphic novels...and I draw them for nothing!!
I'm a professional -I can vote in the Harvey Awards fer cryin' out loud!
I also like the added "then we can work on one to submit to a publisher" -WTF??? So the 150 pager is for the writer to show off to his friends that he's written and had drawn a graphic novel? Oy.
And do not be put off contacting me because you've heard I'm some "big name artist/publisher" (as one person was told). Feel free to contact me for packaging a comic, writing or drawing comics but remember I need to eat and pay bills and I'm not getting any younger....I needs paying!
Chinese or India CompaniesI have, over the years, been interested in either getting my books published in India or China or working on new ideas for those countries.
I know a lot of people from China and India visit my gallery so -any suggestions?
Green Skies"Green Skies" is the follow-up to "Return of the Gods: Twilight of the Super Heroes" (art in Gallery as "NROTG"). Up to page...75 so still plenty of art to do as this book should contain more than the 315+ in Return.
Just the teaser images on Comic Bits Online are getting over 700-1000 hits per day. Now, I just hope the sales are going to be that good.
Keep on drawing (and writing) guys!
Warning - Pedophile on DAIMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
It seems a registered sex offender is back online. Glenn Glatz has been using the username SoThatsWhatsUp for a few months now, using a young girl's face as a coverup for a while. I didn't want to get involved again, but now that I know it's him I wanted to warn my watchers that he's back.
Please do not attack him, do not message him. You may report if you see fit, but that's all we can do for now. This is just a warning because I know I have young watchers and this man is rather sick, he'd sooner harass those against him into submission before admitting he's in the wrong.
It's come to my attention that Glenn is trying to threaten those who are spreading this with law suits. Let it be known, there's no way in hell he can sue you for warning your watchers about a registered sex offender. As you can search Glenn Glatz's name on google, and find him as a sexual predator wit

Messy, it's now clearly obvious to me that you've jinxed us.
Remember your 'excuse' for drawing more girls in swimsuits?
You mean everyone keeps asking about bikini cuz of me?
Not that I had anything against girls in swimsuits...
No doubt! Especially after you said S3rb4n 's Voltsurge looks really great in night lights
Well, I must admire, that we have improved our anatomy skill a bit. But we need to improve other skills too.
I want to draw something fancy, like cute dress or fantasy elven outfit.

Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
