Dempsey and Makepeace


Still working on spoiler laden Criminal pages, so here's a blast from the past. I drew a six page strip for the Dempsey and Makepeace Annual 1986, based on the short lived TV show. I drew this in my first year at art college, so I was 19 I think. Here's the first couple of pages...

As a fan of your work for years i love seeing some old stuff like this.

I also used to watch this pile of crap back in the day .... Glynis Barber was kinda hot :)

Oh, wow. I had this annual, I remember that strip.

(And Glynis Barber was more than "kinda" hot...!)

always interesting to see your old stuff, especially because it's not well known outside of uk.
how old were you when you published your first comics?

Dzuka, I drew a weekly strip for the local paper when I was twelve, but my first pro work was for a Judy Annual, drawn when I was fifteen. Both are on my website.

thanks for quick answer, sean!
you've really started early. amazing.
i've been following your work for almost 15 years and i'm fascinated how you're keep getting better and better, although stuff from 15 years ago were already great! you're a big inspiration. keep on truckin'!
