my old pal Pete Mullins called yesterday and surprised me by mentioning as an afterthought that he has started a blog. He's using it to showcase his work both old and new and make passing comments as he goes along. It was great to see some of the stuff he's been up to of late. Long time readers here will recall that Pete and I worked closely together for a few years in the 1990s. You can see his work in Bacchus volumes 7-10 and From Hell. You'll probably have trouble separating his from mine back then, as we often do ourselves, and as Lambiek does, surprising given that he does work as flash as these character designs for an animated series where the characters are all constructed from old socks.
This is a a clear example of Pete's style on Bacchus. Only the lettering here is mine:

A little humorous five pager titled The Devil's Footprints (co-scripted with Marcus Moore) for a Heavy Metal special number that Kevin Eastman published back in 1997. In this panel I see my own lettering and I guess that hand in the forground; the rest is Pete's:
