The Bug

Recently, in the queue at a 2000AD signing, I was lucky enough to meet John Osborn, a comics writer. We shared details and not long after that John sent me through some ideas of comics he was working on, one of which was 'The Bug', which was inspired by a nightmare he'd had. I drew it up, and we submitted for consideration for Dirty Rotten Comics' latest issue.

We didn't get in, but that's OK. I was really happy with how it turned out, as was John (he hasn't told me otherwise...?) so I'm sharing it here. I enjoyed working on it, too, although because for one reason and another it got a bit rushed toward the end. What I'm really glad works is the transition from 'light and ordered' at the start through to 'dark and chaotic' at the end with a bit of transition in between.
