Created by Kenny Groom, "Upstarts" is a space adventure following an unlikely group of heroes in the not-so-elite unit known as the Unconventional Police, Search, and Rescue Team (UPSRT).
They do not solve crimes. They do not detect, nor ask questions. The UPSRT, or, “Upstarts,” eliminate the perpetrators of crime with extreme prejudice. Victims caught in the crossfire are considered collateral damage and population control.
In preparation for their kickstarter, i was hired to colour the first 3 initial pages.
You can see more details version in the portfolio.

The second issues of The Red Mask From Mars has now officially been launched.
Created, written, and drawn by Vincent Hunt (@jesterdiablo), and coloured by me, Red Mask follows the adventures of astronaut Doug Stewart who, after getting an alien stuck to his face, develops amazing powers and protects the world from alien threats.
It's an amazing, fun, action packed adventure full of alien punching joy.

With Thought Bubble coming up and a new set of Descending Outlands to be printed, i thought i would get some A5 postcards printed up as well.
Been working on a few colours from artist that i think just look amazing. Here's a teaser of a few of them!
Well the comic is completed and as scary as it is i have given the printers the go ahead to print the issues and posters ready for the Melksham Comicon Release on 30th August.
I have finally finished colouring the first issue of Descending Outlands and its looking REALLY good. Even if i do say so myself :)
Have also sorted the cover, banners, and posters ready for its release at Melksham Comicon on 30th August.
Now its over to my good friend, Vincent Hunt (of Red Mask From Mars fame), to start lettering the beast as i work on the chapter separators.
This colouring malarkey has taken far long then I would have liked, but then I suppose as its by baby I am being overly critical.
Still it is a pleasure to be colouring such gorgeous artwork. :)
Below are a few examples of how it’s going, and have already sent a few pages over to the amazing Vincent Hunt (Jester diablo) who is kindly lettering the thing for me. - Incase i haven't plugged it enough, check out his comic The Red Mask From Mars. Its rather good :)
Working on banners and posters as well ready for the big launch at Melksham comicon on August 30th!!!!
With The Red Mask From Mars officially launched, and the inked pages all complete for my new comic, Descending Outlands. It's time for me to start colouring this beast.
I am very excited as not only am i colouring this, but the concept is min and i have also written it. I hope you all like the final result a much as i have loved working on it.
Well, my first con behind the desk and i have to say it was fantastic.
The convention was well organised and all the people that we spoke to were appreciative and impressed with the final comic as well as being top notch fellows.
Also hanging with the other exhibitors was fantastic, with a special shout out to the people on the next table who made our weekend so enjoyable and easy. Thanks you Dani and Ian....also people, check out their comic Razor Hawk (www.razarhawk.com) ITS AWESOME!
And of course don't forget to pick up your copy of The Red Mask From Mars (www.theredmaskfrommars.com)
Its taken longer than i would have liked but i have finally finished and handed over The Red Mask From Mars.
If you have not heard of this then go check out more information at www.theredmaskfrommars.com where you can also download a free origin story.
Created by Vincent Hunt, The Red Mask From Mars is a comic about the UK's newest and snazziest xenomorph-punching hero.A former astronaut with an alien now permanently strapped to his face, Doug Stewart gains incredible power and invulnerabilty. Backed up by a shadowy organization and a motley crue team of agents who try to curb his kamikaze actions, they defend the world from alien menaces of all shapes and sizes. The explosive debut issue launches at Bristol Expo.
Its been a VERY busy weekend of colouring. So much so i have actually been having nightmares about it. Found myself cold in the night and instead of pulling the covers over me for warmth, i was actually colouring my self in warmer tone.....but i digress.
As normal i love to juggle different project. Besides my own, and the previously mentioned Red Mask from Mars, i am also helping some great guys out from Outré press. They bring together artists, writers, colourists and letterers from around the world and to create great pieces of work. This installment, called hopelessness, finds myself on board as the colourist for the story "Surviving the collide".
Hopefully this will be completed by christmas, but in the meantime here is a teaser.
We i am excited to announce that i am currently colouring the amazing work of my brethren Vincent Hunt, or as many of you out there know him, Jester Diablo.
A talented artist, indeed, but also a great writer, Vince has spent the better part of the year creating and honing a unique comic experience called the Red Mask From Mars. The result is a feast for the eyes, mind, and funny bone.
I will no doubt give more details, and probably a bias review, when it is officially launched, but in the meantime i have the pleasure of colouring the issue 1.
To wet your whistle, you can download the origin issue for free by following this link : http://www.theredmaskfrommars.com/The_Red_Mask_From_Mars_Origin.pdf
Well it has been a while since i've actually posted an update to what i've been up to. In all honest life has been quite busy, but a visit to the Awesome Melksham Comicon has given me all manner of enthusiasm and ideas.
Although current on the back burner, i thought i would post the final colours i did for the gutter town comic. Believe that the art is being redone so doubt these will see the light of day, but thought it fun to post.
Will place a few pages in the portfolio for you lot to nose at.
Got a lot of ideas brewing so check back soon.
I have been working hard on the initial 5 page submission of Gutter Town by the awesome Darker Sho and Dragon Vignjevic.
I have added the about to the portfolio if you want a proper look, but afraid you will have to wait to see the finished article as we have decided to go for the whole shebang and create the whole issue. Fun fun fun.
Keep your eyes peeled and i will place more updates on here, also of course check out http://darkerandjune.wordpress.com/comic-books/gutter-town/
Well i have signed on to do the colour for an awesome comic by the name of Gutter Town. Written and lettered by Darker Sho, with artwork by the talented Dragon Vignjevic, this looks to be a very original and entertaining piece of work.
Here the low down :
From the twisted mind that brought you RUIN, Darker Sho presents: “Gutter Town: Runnin’ with the Devil.” When lowbrow con-man Ryder’s dirty deeds catch up to him, his past is more than he and his new wife Adora bargained for. The Hardin gang tracks Ryder down to settle an old debt just as he’s starting his new life. After an unforeseeable tragedy, Ryder finds himself in Hell at the start of a very long sentence of misdoing. Enraged and desperate to settle the score, he strikes up a deal with the devil to hunt down demons that have escaped the underworld and return them in exchange for revenge against the Hardins and the release of Adora’s soul, entrapped by the Devil himself.
Here's sneak peak at the page i'm currently working on
On here's a finished one with lettering....very excited.
