Happy New Year to one and all.

I recently received my 3rd rejection from 2000ad.  As soon as the self adressed envelope pops through the mail box you know that you've been rejected. I feel as though I'm becoming an old hand on the rejection front but at least they reply.

The reply letters are getting shorter. This time focused on my overloading of the panels with too much detail (fair comment) and lack of attention to anatomy (almost everyone can stand to improve on this, so again fair comment). They were kind enough to suggest I showed promise but this looks a bit like a cut and paste part of all the letters.

On the upside I got the Wacom digital pen and tablet for Christmas. So I'll be posting the results of my inking experiments in the near future.

Cheers for 2009 Tom

Hi, 
No I've never had a successful submission. I tried quite hard a few years ago but don't try now. I rarely even got a reply. I am continually working though and looking for a way to make my graphic style work for me. Paintings maybe? Thanks for your interest.

Thanks for the invite. Love Dredd and will post more as I do them. There is part of a submission I made to 2000ad here called Gun Runner. The nearest I've got to working through a whole script.

No problem dude and thanks for the comment! I know what you mean about 1 too many rejection letters. I gave up trying to draw for comicbooks to study animation. Also, I know what it is like to try to fit drawing in around a full time job but I always saw it as a release from the daily grind. Anyway, kick ass at whatever you are doing. Hope you are well!
