Wolves Beano

I got to toss Tricky into a panel, and so I swipe– er, paid homage to a costume design from Jack Davis’ work on the Mad Monster Party.

It’s all Dandy from here!

A peek at the last story of mine from the 2022 Dandy annual. It was another challenging story, because skateboards mean streets, and that means a lot of…

Get this walking Beano out of my way!

The Har-Har kids are dressed up as a mad scientist, and a wookie. Essentially, that’s big foot, with a bandolier– let’s be honest.

All the Beano is waiting for you!

There is a lot of Wonder Woman referencing going on in Beano, and I don’t mind. If anyone would dress as the Amazon princess, it would be JJ….

Nicest Dandy guy you could meet

Of the four stories, I think this was my favorite panel from all of them. I loved getting to draw the old school push mower, plus I liked…

I’ll Beano you can hear me now!

I talked before about the Beano Bosses have three standard poses that are used in the comic. Pointing, jumping, and laughing are the usual ones, but occasionally they’ll…

It was a dark, and Beano evening

This week is the Halloween issue of Beano, even though another book will be out before the holiday; go fig. Anyway, in some of the strips the kids…

Beano up here long?

It’s that same old house again, filled with furniture only available in one model, and a limited selection of colors. Hari wanted something that complimented his red suit. 

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.
