The Lakes International Comic Art Festival & Process Podcast.


I attended The Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Kendal at the weekend and it was superb. Excellently organised, well attended and populated by many of the finest comic creators working today. 

Great to speak to so many new people as well as good friends from the scene. If you would like to know more about my approach to comics, architecture, process, influences and more, you can listen to a chat I had with Steve Walsh on the third episode of his excellent new podcast, Process. The show can be found [HERE]

Thanks again to all who continue to support and enjoy my work and I shall hopefully have some new projects for you soon. In the meantime, here is a previously unreleased, one page archi-comic I drew called: We Don't know What It Was, But We Missed It When It Was Gone.

Avery Hill Publishing are releasing four new exciting titles and to celebrate this, they're having a party, taking place at Orbital Comics on Friday 11th of July. The latest volume of the anthology 'Reads' will be part of the launch line up, which excitingly features my latest Megatherium Club story; 'Skeleton Crew'. I will be there and happy to sign and draw in things if I'm not too drunk. 
Hope to see you there!

Summer Party Invites.

I Illustrated and designed these summer party invites for an upcoming riverside soiree at a design studio. There will be food, pimms and it will be by a river, so it was important to cover all bases with the illustrations.

Frederick Horniman.

I finally got around to visiting the Horniman Museum in Forest Hill and I have to say, it wildly exceeded my expectations. Such a great place and it inspired me to create this portrait of the man himself.
You can learn more more about the man and the museum by listening to Episode 83 of South London Hardcore, the indispensable South London podcast.

Lost In Translation.

I created this alternative poster of Lost in Translation for the Birds Eve View Film Festival poster competition.
I made the shortlist, top 14 out of 134 entries. I was pretty happy with that.

Between the Billboards pt.VI 'The Rise'

It's here; the final installment of my six part comic series Between the Billboards is now out.
Part I came out in 2011 and was my first foray into the world of comics, since then I feel I've learnt a huge amount and encountered a whole stack of lovely people who have inspired and encouraged me to keep on doing what I love doing. I have many exciting comic plans for the future, but Billboards has been a constant and very much feels like the end of that chapter.

Thanks to all who have bought it over the years, I've been overwhelmed by how many of you seem to enjoy the series. I would offer more personalised thanks, but I will surely miss people out, so before I get in any way sentimental, here it is, part VI 'The Rise'. 

As always, you can get it at GOSH! Comics and of course from me directly.

Wu Wei Originals.

I produced a series of panels for my submission to the acclaimed Wu Wei anthology this year. As the perfect use from your Christmas money, I am now selling the originals as individual gifts. They are £40 each (including mounting + framing) and measure 180 X 230 mm when framed.


 

I have sold the two shown framed, but the remainder (shown below) are currently still available. Let me know which one(s) you would like and I can reserve them for you. Contact me in all the normal ways.

Merry Christmas 2013.

Thought Bubble 2013.

Thinking back on everything I've been involved with comics-wise, it kind of seems incredible it has all fitted into one year. Met so many great people and worked on such great projects, it will be superb to underline 2013 with the UK's most exciting comic date on the calendar; Thought BubbleNow, enough about me, what can I offer YOU?

Firstly, I will revealing the 5th and penultimate part of the Between the Billboards miniseries 'The Nothing That You Know'. It's been a while coming, but fear not, it is now complete!

 

 

I will also have The Megatherium Club vol.1 'The Great Ape' that was put out by Avery Hill Publishing earlier this year, of which I am very proud. Anarchic, comedic, historic and alcoholic; this is one for the amateur scientist in all of us.


















And finally you can find me in all the following anthologies that should be available at Thought Bubble too. Worth whatever the cost for the fellow contributors alone.


 


 

Would be great to see of many of you who can attend, I shall be sharing with Elliot Baggott in the Allied London Hall on table 129, listed as 'The Comix Reader'.

Drawing Buildings

I have been doing a fair amount of architectural drawing projects recently and details of this can seen over at my sister site ANALOGUEVISION.COM

Most excitingly, I was asked to submit a piece for Article 25's charity auction as part of their 10X10 Drawing The City exhibition. Details of how to attend, bid on the pieces or simply visit the exhibition, can also be found [HERE].

In addition to this, I have completed a series of illustrations for an architect's compendium of works, produced a narrative series in my capacity as illustration correspondent for T-R-E-M-O-R-S architectural magazine and also had some work featured in a comics anthology. 

As always, I would love to hear your thoughts on these pieces and please share with people you feel might be interested in my architectural drawing services or merely would enjoy the artwork.

Many thanks, O.D Pomery.

Exhibit A.

This is the third comic in an unofficial trilogy I made, the unifying theme being that they were all roundly rejected by the free monthly comics anthology 'Off Life'.

I'm not bitter or anything. Honest.
Instead I'm holding on to the words of Avery Hill Publishing stablemate Tim Bird:

'If everyone likes what you're doing, you're doing it wrong'.

Cheers Tim, I feel better already.
Here are links to the first two: 'Silent Treatment' and 'By The Light of the Kiosk'
