SPANDEX


Well after vowing to take a few months off from drawing - and not do anything until the new year - I have failed miserably, and couldn't help myself.
I'm maybe a third of the way thru O Men 2.6 which is a killer of an issue. 2.7 is going to turn the entire series on its head. Then I might take a break for the final five-part season two climax issues to focus on...
SPANDEX!
I absolutely love these guys to pieces, and I cannot help myself from drawing them. So I think the plan with these guys is to release a digest book containing 6 20-page stories (I'm in love with digest books - I love the format of the Scott Pilgrim books and seeing Becky Cloonan's new pirates digest was the final thing to convince me). And that will be it for them, I think - I am just going to do what I need to do with the characters and then leave them to go off and have fun. Six really tightly written, fun stories.
So yeah, I think that's the plan - finally. I've also been thinking about other formats for the whole thing - like making it available to mobiles and ipod - and I really want to do something with the GArfield-type format - 3 panels - but I don't think Spandex is right for that.
So I hope you like the pic - I love it. The guys are: Liberty, Diva, Glitter, Miss Fantastic, Mr Muscle, Butch and I've forgotten the front-guy's name.
Can you guess their secret? lol...

can i just say - the lady on the right - Butch - she hasn't got a droopy boob - it's an angle thing.

Is Butch wearing some kind of fighting gloves?

How did the iPod formatting experiment from a couple of posts down go?

Mart said...

um i never got round to it

Butch just probably has craply drawn hands...

Mart said...

Good lord that *is* a bad hand isn't it. I guess I was drawing it at an angle lol. Poor Butch.

Well, no the thing is, it actually looks pretty good, I think. I mean, I'd go for big chunky fighting gloves there, and just pretend that that was the plan all the time. ;)

i would never deceive my readers in this way, kelvin.
