Now, where was I?
It feels like forever since I’ve done any drawing. Such is real life.

Great video from a great event. Dublin ZIne Fair 2014

I
 see Gus Hughes and Ken Mahon flying the Cardboard Press flag, alongside cameos from Stray Lines alumni Phillip Barrett and Barry Hughes!

Previews of Gus Hughes Cardboard Press comic/zine ‘Pictorial Histories of Leider’. A riot of avant-garde comics narrative styles and mark making. Beautiful stuff.

patrickl:

REMINDER - The Dublin Zine Fair happens this weekend. Cardboard Press will be there represented by Gus Hughes, Ken Mahon, and myself for a while.

Super rough pencil texture test over grey/line print out.

Love the depth it brings, even at this low level of detail.

Looking forward to the sound of this coming through my letterbox!

Stone Hewn Sky process. I think I’ve finally nailed the approach I want to take with the artwork. there will be one more layer with some soft textured pencil shading but I think the grey layer and line art now interact more clearly. I’ll probably delete some of the extraneous black lines too before going to print.

Just have to redo the 16 existing pages and add 16 new ones!
