‘Two Washington’s don’t make a right’
By the way, if you’re having trouble seeing the picture properly, click the image, then right click on it and ‘view image’ and it’ll open full size!
“Mike” the gray, blue-uniform-wearing alien from astrowagon.tumblr.com … combative with this green glob-blob of an alien I’ll call “Steve” (simply because it’s a name that goes with Mike).
Note #1: This was drawn with Manga Studio (my first experiment with the program) and colored with Adobe Photoshop.
Note #2: This was drawn by me, but “Mike” was modeled after the character from the aforementioned tumblr site.
I love this! dubbayucomics (dubbayucomics.tumblr.com) made this strip of Mike from Astrowagon having a little space rumble with a blob called Steve :)

‘The wrong end of the (saucer on a) stick’
Here’s a picture from Gary’s iPhone of that time he met Pinochet. Good times.
So, it would appear I’m about two thirds of the way through #Astrowagon. It’s been a lot (and I actually mean it this time) of fun! It’s been a bit of a new venture for me, as I’ve never done a proper comic before, and I’ve enjoyed the challenge that my stupid brain has thrown at me every week!
Don’t worry though, it won’t be the end. I’ve got a couple more adventures up my rubbery space suit trouser leg.
I’m planning on getting some print editions of it when it’s complete, which will feature lots of other stuff I haven’t posted.
Would you want to get your filthy sexy mitts on a copy?
Hey kids! If you’re a filmmaker, animator, or storyboard artist and you don’t know what screen direction is, you might want to read this.
For the record, there are always exceptions to the rule in filmmaking, which is why I pointed out 3 examples here.
I’ve also found that comic books tend to NOT take screen direction as seriously as film does, but I’m still on the fence if this is wise or not. My favorite comics pay close attention to screen direction so as to not confuse the reader.
Here’s a nice video of us playing ‘Compass’ at last years Swansea #Ska fest courtesy of TwoFootTall Productions! This was a super fun, super sweaty gig. Possibly the last ever gig too!
But we’ll see.
This incarnation of the Drewvis band features Lewis ‘Lew-Dawg’ Trice, and Andy ‘The Hitman’ Whitman, and was the first gig that was non-acoustic, the first (and only) time I’d gotten to play my sexy Telecaster on stage.
I do miss the band life!
One things for sure though, there will be a third album…
