The Cattle Raid of Cooley – some false starts

Still not ready to continue the story, but to tide you over I thought I’d share with you something I found on a memory stick this morning. Before I did Ness I made a couple of false starts at adapting the Cattle Raid, which for reasons of confidence I never got very far on. These ones began with a very famous scene that I left out of the final version – the “pillow talk” scene between Ailill and Medb.

This one, in pencil, is from 2004:

And another attempt at the same scene from 2006, which I drew digitally using a graphics tablet.

Non-update update

Hello readers, just checking in to keep the blog ticking over.

Posting will continue to be a bit light for a while. Sorting out my mum’s estate is a difficult and emotionally draining process and doesn’t leave me with an awful lot of energy for other things, like drawing. I’m making some headway with The Cattle Raid of Cooley, but I want to make a bit more headway before I start posting again. The finishing post is in sight, I just need to build up a bit of momentum. Hope I can make a more substantive update before much longer.

The Cattle Raid of Cooley sitrep

It’s now nearly two months since the last update on The Cattle Raid of Cooley. Circumstances, which I went into in my last post, have meant that my break from the comic has been a bit longer than I intended, and will be a bit longer still. Don’t worry, I will finish the story, not too far from now. I’ve come too far to give up now!

Although I’m not ready to continue the story yet, I have been doing a small amount of revision. I’ve always done minor continuity errors and redrawn the odd panel here and there without feeling the need to mention it, and I’ve done a bit of that, but the more drastic revision is the insertion of two whole new pages into Chapter 10. Your computer might have cached the old images, so next time you read pages 11 and 12, refresh the page to see what I’ve added.

You might also notice I’ve redesigned the site to look more of a portfolio and less of a blog. Please feel free to explore.

Radio silence

You know what I did? I failed to post an update last week, and didn’t even notice. Sorry about that. There’s no update this week either, and may not be for a few weeks after that. So I’ve decided to take a short holiday from The Cattle Raid of Cooley, recharge my batteries, and come back refreshed for the big push towards the conclusion of the story.

In the meantime, here are some snippets of some of the other things I’m working on.
