Dandy old men

For “Nicest” I had to design a group of old guys, My favorite is the one in the middle with the waistband of his pants practically up to…

Stay one Beano ahead of the others

It’s funny how we learn things. To help remember the difference between stalactite and stalagmite as a kid, I associated the “c” with ceiling, and the “g” with…

Beano fever, Beano fever, we know how to do it

Motion in a still image is always a challenge, and here I trying to show a spin move; like when Wonder Woman changes. I hope the flowing feather…

Dandy that’s a lot of dudes!

One fo the few downsides to drawing Jocks and Geordies? There’s 10 of these guys, and they all seem to want to be in every panel. Ugh. This…

Sometimes it goes off without a Beano

The Beano Boss kids are always a challenge. You want to make the kid look like who they are, which requires exaggeration of some features, but you don’t…

Haunted Beano

Halloween is coming up– but no, this isn’t a Ghostbusters parody in Beano. I had to make the Beano Boss invisible, but like Wonder Woman’s plane, it’s a…

Beano lifting

Why do people always want to strike up a conversation with you when you’re doing heavy lifting?  I should have added some “pain stars” shooting out of Hari’s…

The Dandy Life

Another Jocks and Geordies story I did is “Nicest”. As I mentioned, The artists get to draw the title, and I based this one on the opening credits…

Everything old is Beano again

This week in the Har-Har strip there’s reference to a laugh box, which is an old joke prop. I had one when I was a little kid, but…

Fill it up to the Beano

Again, trying to keep things consistent. One way to do that- have everyone live in a house with the same floor plan, same interior decorations, and furniture. The…

Dandy away!

The Jock and Geordies story “Huts” made for some difficult shots, like the one below. Not only did I have to show the structures, and get the guys…

Kicking the old Beano around

Lot of soccer/football fans in the UK… a lot.

What in the Beano is it?

As mentioned previously, I try to keep details consistent from issue to issue. One nice thing about the Har-Har strip was they had model sheets of the shop…

One Beano Perspective

The Prank Academy this required some odd angles. It’s hard enough to get a likeness in a normal view, how’d I do? 

Dandy bombs!

As I mentioned, the Dandy 2022 has four stories by yours truly. “Huts” is about the boys rebuilding their club houses bigger than the others, and making them…

Beano Hope?

The Beanotown ice cream man, Mr. Icy, is in the Beano Boss strip this week. I think he looks like Bob Hope, but then how many kids know…

This Island Beano

Had to put an alien in this issue, so I decided to mix and match some classic sci-fi references. The head is from the mutants of “This Island…

I’ll be Dandy that’s a hoot!

So I ended up doing FOUR  stories in the Dandy 2022 annual! One of the more entertaining things about working on the stories are the titles- which the…

Beano-ji

The Boss had a shirt with type on it in the references, but I tried to make it a little easier to keep consistent. Emoji for the win. 

Caught from Beano-hind!

Everyone in the line is a regular character in Beano, but can people recognize them from this angle?
