    The weekend just gone, Leeds hosted the 2014 Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival. Myself and my fellow loungers took a trip there on Sunday and had such a good time meeting artist and watching them draw. All the artist we meet were incredibly nice and down to earth. So when I single out Rufus Dayglo as a particularly nice chap, it really says a lot.

    Mr Dayglo is best know for his work on the relaunched Tank Girl series, with the original writer Alan Martin. He has worked with publisher DC Vertigo, 2000ad, IDW on titles including The Unwritten, Judge Dredd and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty respectively. Mr Dayglo more recently has teamed up with Sofie Dodgson for a creator owned project titled Solid Gold Death Mask. Once complete it will be collected and released by Ashley Wood’s 3A Publishing.

    As well as his website, you can find Rufus Dayglo on deviantArt, twitter and tumblr.
