Here's a little bit of unfinished artwork for chapter 3 of Flux which I'm currently working on. Looking back over chapter 1 I can see how much I have come on using the tablet.

The official release of Flux is almost here. The revisions of Chapter One are complete and the fist print run has been ordered. It will be available to order through the official store which will be added to the website upon this issue's release. An official release date will be announced soon. The comic will also be available digitally from Comixology , with plans for it to be available from the Kindle Store also.

I decided to step back from it and not touch it until I actually wanted to, rather than feeling I had to. So far I've not felt the desire to do so. I will eventually, but for now other pastimes have taken my focus. As always, I'm constantly looking for ways to take something I enjoy and turn it into a living, or at least make some extra money on the side of the day job. Although I'd always intended to do some standalone pieces of artwork, I'd never really thought to what end. I few weeks ago I attended the Yorkshire Cosplay Con with my partner Gen, where we proceeded to purchase a fair collection of artwork from the many artist stalls. Adding t
