Owen Watts contacted me on the 12th April 2012 about his new publication 'The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel'. He mentioned that he had a script brimming with enough Dinosaurs, creatures and future-Tech from imaginative comic script writer Oscar Maltby to keep me going. Incidentally Oscar has a website http://www.oscarmaltby.com/2013/03/the-psychedelic-journal-2013.html which may feature more about this story.
The dead line was January 1st 2013 so I had quite a bit of time to complete four full colour pages. However with some other big projects on the go I decided to get cracking. After a short amount of time producing rough suit designs for the Templars, designs for the Dino's and page layouts (which can be seen below) I put pencil to paper and started the final page art. By early May I had completed all four colour pages along with pages for a few other projects with tight deadlines.
All in all I really enjoyed drawing this story. The finished publication produced by Editor Owen Watts, Geoffery Crescent (Assistant Editor) with a whole bunch of talented small press creatives looks AMAZING! I've provided a link at the bottom of this post for those that wish to buy a copy of 'The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel'.
