Some sort of vague scrapbook of ideas, internet rubbish & things Ben Templesmith finds somewhat amusing. For real site, check out www.templesmith.com

Just put the finishing touches on THE SQUIDDER special prelude for all the amazing folks who backed the book on kickstarter by @44FLOOD. A special scene that’ll only be found in they version of the book. Like a director’a cut basically. Because they rock. #art #comics #horror #squid.
Well THE SQUIDDER has concluded & my expectations of doing true creator owned original graphic novels outside the mainstream publishing system will never be the same. Thanks to all the amazing backers I can now push forward & make the book I want to make. & 44FLOOD can get down to the business of spreading art across the globe.
Close to 2000 of you guys wanted a book & a book you shall have. It’s a precious thing when a creative can find an audience that responds to their work. I do not forget that. I do what I do because I want to tell stories my way, whatever they may be…but it would be a hollow existence if I didn’t have all you amazing folks willing to look at them & empower me to do what I love.
So thank you. For the overwhelming record breaking support on THE SQUIDDER and all the little things, like the spreading of the word across social media. Every bit helped.
Just thank you. & hail squid.

“John Constantine - the real John Constantine - by Dave McKean, from the UKCAC87 booklet. Neither the Hellblazer title or McKean & Gaiman’s Black Orchid would see print until the following year, meaning that this is an interesting glimpse of the artist’s approach before he was first published at DC.”
…But done after Dave had started drawing Black Orchid, and after he’d already painted several of the Hellblazer covers, that wouldn’t be published until the following year, of course.
Tasty tasty #walkingdead commission from Longbeach last weekend. #art #comics #painting #horror #fastfood
