Projects Galore

Good morning all.

It's been a while since I updated the blog with any of my projects so thought I'd let you know what's happening in the pickle jar.

The obvious big thing at the moment is the shop in both online and physical format. This takes up a lot of my time but I'm slowly starting to get back into the rhythm of other projects as well.

Other than the shop (which by the way you should all visit and buy stuff so I can become wealthy :-D) I am working on a comic anthology with some comic friends which will be launched at Nottingham Comic Con later this year the. The comic is for all ages and is a great collaboration with each of us writing and drawing the others comics.

I am also working on a project which has been ongoing for several years now in some way shape or form 'Project Cornelius'. Very grand sounding I know. 
I have been writing a steampunk comic for several years on and off called 'The Intrepid Endeavours of Cornelius Blow' and I'm finally getting to a point where I can actually create it. When I first started out with the idea a few years back I rushed out a prologue comic.

This was only a very short glimpse into the story but has proved quite popular. Now that I have the main story scripted out all I need to do is sit down and draw it.

On top of this already huge project I am developing a tabletop game based around the Cornelius story. It will be a cross between a board game, a card game, and a miniature war game which should hopefully make it a very unique prospect. I have already been sculpting models for it and developing rules as well as creating artwork and short stories. All of which when combined should give a really deep background that will make it very interesting and playable. 

As this is something I want to follow through to manufacture and sale etc. I will be posting updates on the blog as regular as I can to keep you all up to date on progress. If you have any questions feel free to  comment or email at

Mike :-)
