(via Kasterborous): Comics artist Adrian Salmon, whose credits include work for Judge Dredd: The Megazine, Doctor Who Magazine and the graphic novel The Faceless: A Terry Sharp Story has recently begun a blog, which includes many samples of his recent work and background on how he created them.
Included are Doctor Who illustrations and samples of his work on the Hammer Horror tribute publication Little Shoppe of Horrors like this one of Doctor Jekyll. (Megazine readers may recall one of Ade’s characters for a Judge Karyn story I wrote bore an uncanny resemblance to Peter Cushing…)
Thos of you reading this that live in Manchester may also like to know that the Lass O’Gowry has a room dedicated to Ade’s work. If that isn’t an excuse to nip there for a pint…
