Brendan: Two pages of the original sketches for "Mirkin The Mystic", the very British "Oscar Wilde meets Dr Strange" character created by myself and Peter Milligan in the 1980's. I've added a bit of digital jazz on the right hand image just to tart it up a bit. It was in a bit of a sorry state.

These are now with comic book art dealer Albert Moy and are available now.

A couple of recent McCarthy related links...

Over on Mark Cardwell's Bad Librarianship blog Brendan talking about Graffiti art...

"Based on one of my own images: Street Toads, by Ben and Raph of the IFC. The lettering next to the image says, "toad", but is sprayed in an almost abstract whirl of shapes. I think it looks really fantastic... The image is over 40 feet in length. These young guys are the new spraymasters: The new Banksys and Failes. It's happening now -- an urban comics and graffiti fusion"
