CAM KENNEDY DRAWS BUDDHA COVER FOR WASTED


This is a mock up for issue 6 of Wasted the colouring might change abit in the final version but it's such a thrill to see someone like Cam draw a character that i work on , as you see he's on Choppers surf board and in space looking cosmic this image appears in the new issue of Wasted out now .
sadly Cam now has retired from comics but he has left a huge amount of brilliant work which will always be in print be it his Judge Dredd work or Star Wars Dark Empire or his adaptions of Kidnapped and  The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

BUDDHA ART STYLE

                                                                                              

When i first started drawing Tales of the Buddha before he got enlightened 8 years ago
i wanted the art to be a mix of two styles 
French fantasy European art style by Moebius and American underground art by Robert Crumb 
as you can see from these two samples the blend worked well with the mighty Chubby one
