Boots and Glove were a pair of characters I created in my early teens. I wrote text stories and
drew spot illustrations for many years, refining the characters, designs and art.

This is one of my later attempts (and an experiment in adding tone with diluted india ink) which
utilised figures I had drawn and retraced a number of times. Overworking the forms contributed
to the static layout and wooden figures.
This six page Boots and Glove
story was the first complete
comic strip I ever drew (and
wrote)-- I prepared it as a
sample to show when I first  
attempted to get professional
work in British comics.

I drew the art on A4 cartridge
paper with Rotring pens and felt
tips.
