Commission: Wonder Woman


Another commission I really enjoyed.
Turns out I'm a fan of drawing kick ass women. Shocker.



Email me (rachael@rachaelsmith.org) if you'd like me to draw something for you/a loved one sometime. xxx

I don't usually post commissions, mainly because I forget to! I really enjoyed this one though so I thought I'd share it :)

British Comic Awards - Emerging Talent nomination


Absolutely chuffed to announce I've made the shortlist in this year's British Comic Awards Emerging Talent category!

There were 93 of us on the Longlist - and to make the final five is the raddest thing ever.


My work from the last year, (along with the work of the other four brilliantly talented peeps) will now be passed over to the British Comic Awards Judging Panel who will decide the winner.

The winners of all the categories of the BCAs will be announced at the 3rd Annual British Comic Awards Ceremony which will take place at 6pm on Saturday 15th November in the Royal Armories Bury Theatre in Leeds as part of the Thought Bubble Festival.

Wish me luck :)

Doctor Who comics back-up strips

Guys!

I'm super excited and stoked and amazed to announce I'll be doing a new monthly strip for the Doctor Who: 10th Doctor comics published by Titan Comics.

My first one will be in issue 4 which should be out early November, which you'll be able to pick up at all good comic shops :)

I've written and drawn each strip myself, working closely with the lovely folk at Titan, its been a blast and I can't wait for you guys to see 'em in all their glory.

Here's a sneaky peek at part of the first strip and some of the concept art for now...(more soon)...

...and yes, of course there's a cat involved. OF COURSE THERE IS.
