Ah, the joys of job seeking…
One of my latest daily comics. If you want to see more, be sure to follow my new Tumblr over at nellucnhoj.tumblr.com!
I think a new bottle of shampoo is in order.
Oh, also, I just hit 100 Tumblr followers today so thanks very much to all of you for checking out my work!
A blast from the past! This is a comic I did during my previous run of daily comics back in 2010/2011 (during which I posted my work to another Tumblr blog).
I thought it’d be cool to take some of my previous b&w only comics and add some colour to them. You can see the result below:
As you can see above, I added a touch of colour to this strip I did all the way back in 2011.

Hero worship: gets a little old after a while.
For those of you who may be out of the loop, I’ve been doing a new batch of daily comics that you can check out here!
It’s crabs all the way down!

Just a reminder that I’ve started working on a new batch of daily comics over on my new Tumblr, you can keep track of them here.
Ave Maris Stella Silentum
2014, digital, time
In the near future, the Catholic Church will realize it’s clear that if God exists, he isn’t coming to us. To this end, they will use their immeasurable wealth to launch their own space program, with standing orders to seek out God by following Stella Maris, the North Star, and to impress the word of Christ upon any sentient life forms they should come across – by force, if necessary. Space crusaders.
This is the first time in a long time that I’ve given a personal piece this much attention, and I’m glad I did. The title, Ave Maris Stella Silentum (Hail Star of the Silent Sea), is a reference to a hymn to Mary from the middle ages, Ave Maris Stella, just more… silent. In space, after all, no one can hear you pray.
There’s a deeply-buried reference to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine here, but it’ll require a working knowledge of both the crusades and Star Trek. Good luck, and thanks for looking!
This new piece by Glitchritual, AKA Ty Dunitz, is bloody fantastic!
Daily Comic: The ‘S’ stands for ‘Hope.’
Just resurrecting this dusty old account of mine to let you all know that I’ve started a new daily comic over on my other Tumblr. Seeing as I now have a tablet, these ones’ll have a quick dash of colour added to them as well!
COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN!
'lo all, I'm currently taking on commissions (examples of which you can see in my previous posts), so if you have a favourite comic/cartoon/TV/film character you want me to draw, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk details.
My rates are as follows:
- Single character pencils: $25
- Single characters pens/inks:$35
- Any additional characters: $10
Even if you’re not interested in a commission, perhaps you know someone who is? If so, please share this post!
'lo all! My, has it been that long? As you may have noticed (or, more likely, haven't), I've sort of mothballed this Tumblr account and have left it to gather so much digital dust.
Well, the bad news is this: it’s staying that way. The good news? Well, as you may have deduced from the title, I’ve set up a new Tumblr blog over at http://nellucnhoj.tumblr.com/
So, to keep track of my further adventures in cartooning, simply point your browser thataway and give me a follow (or two, or three)!

Oh god, how long ago was this sent? The course I’m attending is nothing fancy, it’s a FETAC level 5 course that is held mostly in the art room of a secondary school. Specifically, it’s the ‘Portfolio Preparation’ course.
I’ll admit, it’s not *quite*what I was hoping for (there’s a worryingly little amount of life drawing) but I’ve got to meet some cool people there.
My apologies for taking this long to get back to you, Adam. You’d think having being on Tumblr this long I’d be used to it by now!EDIT: Whoooooops, I just realised I never properly answered your question. I’m attending the course in Carlow.
What the title says. These books cover everything from anatomy to composition to animation & comics:
Here’s an excellent book on inking:
Also, if you don’t already have ‘em, Andrew Loomis’ books are pretty much the best-of-the-best:
There is an absolute wealth of information contained in all these books, more than enough to last you a long, looooooong time.
Just reblogging this for those of you who may have missed it yesterday. It’s an absolute motherlode of scanned art reference/instructional books.
