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.
