2009

Collection.jpgThe start of a new year, and I can finally mention a few of the various projects I've been recently working on. Star Wars I cannot talk about until next month, but this morning the latest issue of the Judge Dredd Megazine arrived featuring my first Dredd work in nearly 10 years.

Written by Al Ewing, Magic Bullets is the first part of a twenty page Dredd story I did for the Megazine late last year. Another story, a thirty-pager, will follow later in the year. I must say I've had a ball drawing Old Stoney Face after all this time, and with hints of a possible new Dredd film project in development (check out some of Jock's pre-production art starting to appear on various sites), it looks like being a good year for everyones favorite Future Cop...

A nice little surprise arrived at the same time: Judge Dredd: The Colin Wilson Collection. This features 50+ pages of Dredd stories I drew for both 2000AD and The Megazine in the late '90's. A funny though just occurred to me... if I get the chance to draw something for 2000AD next year, I will have had work published there for each of the last four decades. Scary...

Which reminds me: must nip over to the newsagent and pick one of these up.

Looks like this is your year to 'collect' Colin. Congrats on all the stuff in the works at the moment.

Hey, I didn't know about this...? A Colin Wilson collection. Nice.

Is it just going to be this one which comes with the Megazine? A more substantial 'complete' Colin Wilson, Judge Dredd collection would be great as well.

Though this pretty much covers all the stuff I missed when I stopped reading 2000AD for a bit.

Your latest work in the Megazine has a very gritty feel, which is perfect for Dredd. It's very bold and dramatic, aggressive even.

Is there a deliberate 'adjustment' of style for different characters or am I imagining it?
