The Living Eraser by CarlPearce
The Living Eraser
I kid you not: This is an actual Marvel character. I'd like to use him on a lot of the editorial decisions Marvel Comics has been making lately.
Loading...
Hello to the few.

I'm back. Back again. Guess who's back. Tell a friend. etc.

Sorry I've been away for a stint. Between the full time bloody big series I've just completed for a reputable and well paying publisher, being a full time dad, full time home maker (!) and so on, I've not had time to work on ANYTHING for myself. At all. So many ideas, zip time to do 'um. My paid work has been / still is under embargo so I've just lurked in the shadows watching dA like an pencil-fondling Quasimodo. So I've popped something on here today for any of you who still keep and eye out or even give half a crap.

Here's to adding more in the future going on.

Carl
  • Listening to: The house down the street getting a new roof.
  • Reading: Perfidia
  • Watching: Went to see 'Girl On The Train' last night.
  • Playing: With the little 'en when I can.
  • Eating: Nothing yet. Hungry.
  • Drinking: Twinnings Every Day Tea

No you don't. My wife doesn't love everything I do. I think the baby does though.

Wow, you have a great gallery! I'd follow you right away, but the mobile app doesn't currently let me do so for some unknown reason.

Thanks. I've got loads of ethnicly diverse character in my folio. I illustrated a few titles for Tamarind books over the past 10 years.

I noticed!  It's good to see.  Part of the objective of our group is to bring overlooked ethnicity (specifically Afrocentric ethnicity) into the mainstream a little more.  I applaud your effort!

If I'm honest, it's not a conscious effort. It's just how it comes out.

I come from a very rural area in North Wales. There aren't many varying shades of skin colour around here other than the lads who work in the local Indian Restaurant, for no other reason than how remote we are. However, I'm a huge movie fan. Always have been from a very young age. I'm used to a world of different races through the movies, but being from a smaller area, there has never been any issues over race bias, like there is in cities. I've never seen the point of issues due to how people look or where they're from. If anything I find it more interesting meeting someone who isn't like me.

So I naturally add different races to my stories as a reflection on how I see the world. Publishers saw that and took me on for that reason. I just present the world around me. Well. The movie world around me. If it was the actual world around me it'd be mountains, lakes and rough seas with more sheep than people, ha ha.
