The Project

Hoovercop was a one-off comic strip I worked on with my friend Magz. The Scottish fanzine, From the Sublime published the finished strip.

What I worked on

I drew the panels. Magz invented the characters, drew the lettering and wrote the script. It was very silly.

What I learned

Simpler is quicker. My early illustration style was very detailed and quite labourious. Some of those illustrations took months to finish. Hoovercop was an intentional move towards a simpler style. The result was quicker to produce and way more fun.
