I love, love, LOVE telling the stories of Lloyd and the Bear (and all the gubbins that goes with it) but I really like to push myself and want to try something different that’s not set in the LatB universe.

I have an idea, I know what the main characters look like and a few things about them, I’ve worked out the main character’s name, I’ve a concept and a rough working title but what I don’t have if a definitive look for the artwork.

You see, I’m pretty good at doing different styles of art and I don’t want to do the same look as LatB so I’m left with a lot of choices but also at the same time I don’t want something that’s heavily detailed as I don’t want this to take me away from LatB!

So back on Saturday, inspired by Small Press day, I started sketching out the main characters and here’s what I’ve come up with so far!

I’m really happy with this but have SO MUCH MORE work to do and will be sure to update you guys as I get on with this – plus create a new avatar just for these posts(!)

And hey, going back to Lloyd and the Bear news I’ve been (slowly) busy with updating the final pages of issue #13 while also preparing for MCM Manchester (which isn’t that far away now!)

So as always, busy! More soon!

Bear hugs!
