Anyone fancy a bit of Speed Dating??

Last year a small press publication called Hallowscream featured a story called Speed Date which was written by the very talented Dirk Van Dom and illustrated by the enigmatic Ghostpockets.

Now Ghostpockets style is very unique. I can see a little bit of a Mike McMahon influence in his work, (after Mr McMahon mutated his style again) which isn't a bad thing.

Anyway, due to other commitments Ghostpockets wasn't available to illustrate the second part of Speed Date - Speed Date 2 - Cruz Control (cool title or what!)  So after the work that I had produced for Dr WTF, Dirk asked me if I would like to take over the mantle of drawing the final episode of the story. After reading the script how could it refuse!! Expect, blood, snot and a hot bad-ass chick!

Below is the first page of the second episode. I'm wanting to keep the continuity going buy using Ghostpockets colours, but try and make it a bit more grittier as the story does become quite dark.

And below is the final page of the first episode.

And finally (because I'm waffling) is the initial concept sketch of the main character 'Tucker'
