Script: Adam Page. Artwork: David Broughton. Lettering: Dan Bell.

December 2011 Owen Watts editor of the fabulous small press comic ‘Dr. WTF’ contacted me. I had been in correspondence with comic script writer Greg Meldrum a few days before. Greg had mentioned that Owen might need an artist to do some work for his comic. I told him I was interested and a few days later I gladly accepted a script by Adam Page with a deadline of February 1st 2012 for the artwork so I had plenty of time.

I started the artwork on December 18th 2011 with the script in hand I produced a series of thumbnail rough layouts for the pages (these can be seen below) after I began to pencil and ink the final artwork on A3 220gm heavy weight paper. I completed inking the last page on 27th of December 2011.

By January 1st 2012 I had fully coloured all five pages and had sent them to Owen for lettering with a whole month to spare.
