Hey Beaver and Steve fans, I have two new books out!
Mameshiba on the Loose is the tale of the adventures of a group of beans with tiny dog faces - yes that's right, BEAN DOGS. Bean dogs that love trivia. The book is illustrated by Jorge Monlongo, with scripts by me.
Super Animal Adventure Squad is about the adventures of the world's most elite team of anthropomorphic secret agents, as they thwart evil scientists, battle pirates and eat lots of cake. It is released on the 6th of October 2011 and is completely drawn and written by me. All of it! There is also a facebook page for it here
If you like Beaver and Steve I am pretty sure you will find these books exceedingly enjoyable, so please check them out! (these links will take you to the amazon UK website, but they are also available from many other retailers and will hopefully be in shops too!)
Well this was supposed to be a 12-panel double-sized epic to make up for the missed update on tuesday, but I'd got about as far as pencilling panel 11 when the began to feel the arms of morpheus closing around me (which is to say, I began to feel sleepy, not that I was being cuddled by that dude out of the matrix) and I knew it wasn't going to happen. I managed to get up at 7 this morning and at least ink this much, but the rest will have to wait until next week.
I now have the first 20 copies of book 2 at my house, and they are things of beauty to behold, with colours so vivid they will bring tears of joy to your eyes. In short: these books rule, and you should buy one. Non-personalised books will be shipped directly from India - we are sending one as a trial to see how long it will take, and after that shipping will begin! It's all very exciting!
If you are looking to get a Beaver and Steve t-shirt for someone for Christmas time is running out. Orders for the US and Canada must be made before the 5th of December in order to make sure they arrive in time for the big day, and for orders anywhere else in the world you only have until the 30th of November. There are new prints of the shirts coming soon, so if I don't have your size don't panic - I'll update with more information once I have it.
