Here's a link to the PDF of the page on "How To Draw a Comic Strip Superhero" I did for the Times.
I hope you'll all be practising drawing with my terrible terrible advice!

I'm excited to reveal that I have a full page illustration in the Times today - if anyone has a copy or can sneak a peak in a newsagents it's on the Young Times page, page 34 of the Times2 pullout. It came out quite well considering I was up until 5am finishing it! It's a series of panels telling kids how to draw their own super hero - will try to scan in a copy once I get home.

Part 4! Thanks to Daniel for coming up with the idea of that really disgusting eyelid trick for the finale. Ugh.

I was dead chuffed to see this article in the Times Online earlier this week. Look! I drew that picture!

Here's Dan's brilliantly illustrated second installment of the storyline. If you'd like to see more of Dan's work I recommend you check out his cyborg caveman epic (yes, that's right: CYBORG CAVEMAN) Thog Infinitron, and although it's not updating at the moment I strongly advise a browse through the archives of his other comic Anything Could Happen for some 5 star laffs.

And the winner is: Dan Woodhouse! Woo! Dan will be handling the art work for the site for the next 5 weeks (and he'll also be getting signed copies of my books in the post) - I hope you will all enjoy his art as much as I do!

Ok, so after some people suggested I find an artist to do the strip for me, I tried to think of people who I felt I could trust my precious precious baby with. But when I realised that everyone who is a good artist is also going to be busy working on their own webcomics, so I decided: screw it, I'll just let everybody draw it.
