Somebody mentioned SCP on metafilter, but the address points to the wrong place.Oh no!
SCP was a weekly gag strip that I used to do – this site is a blog that I currently maintain to post story-based comics. You can read the old SCP archives here.
Pages take a bit longer to complete that the old SCP strips that I’m used to. Sorry this one’s late!
Aaron’s character designs for our big secret project are coming along very nicely!
I’m busy at work on the next page of Embedded- it’s penciled and scanned, and I’ll ink and colour it over the next couple of days. In the meantime, check out my most recent collaboration: Replacement Parts.
This one was drawn by my day-job co-worker, the very talented Aaron Bouthillier. As an added bonus, here’s the original script that I sent to Aaron. I always find it fascinating to see how an artist will interpret what I’ve written. When I write a script for another person, I always try to pack in more detail than they can possibly use, so as to provide background texture to guide their interpretation. When they go to actually draw a page, a key part of the process for them is to decide what to show and what to leave implied.

Also, if you read a certain post on Aaron’s site, you’ll get a sneak preview of our next big collaboration. It’s still at an early stage, but it’s the most ambitious comics project I’ve ever attempted. If all goes well, it will be a book-length story about mining – and monsters! I’ll post more once the pages start flowing.
The Tinker is my solo entry for the next Cloudscape book, as mentioned below. At 12 pages, it’s the longest thing that I’ve ever published, and was a real education in terms of story and production pacing. Many of you have probably already seen it (it went up with the new site design), but I’m giving it it’s own post so that there’s a place for comments.
Also, here’s an early concept sketch of Camden:
