I'm Tom Humberstone. I'm a comic artist and illustrator. I draw a weekly comic for the New Statesman. I'm currently working on my 6 issue comic series Ellipsis.

I use this tumblr to post my own illustrations/comics + things that I like.

A Century of Silent Helpers: Part 3

The third part of a 50 page, interactive comic about development aid (drawn by me) is now online here. A dutch translation can be found here. The comic was written and researched by Tjeerd Royaards.

Part one is online here if you missed it.

Part two is here.

All chapters are finished and we’re putting the finishing touches to a printed version that should be available in October/November this year. Part 4 should be online next month.

Illustrations I did a while back for an article about disease caused by sustained exposure to noise, for Etiqueta Negra magazine. You know, it may be a low-frecuency buzzing from some ominous engine, but you could also get mad hearing a tap dripping onto the sink in the dead of the night.

Oh yes, there is some obvious Kirby tribute in the first one. Drawing nonsense machinery is fun.

Time for another compilation of bits from my Instagram (which you can find here).

This time around it’s all snippets from a comic I am working on. I am painfully aware that I don’t actually have much in the way of proper experience in drawing sequential work (or to be more accurate I have drawn a meagre 24 pages to date). In order to get a bit more practice in before I start work on an ongoing series this fall (more on that later), I’m taking a leaf out of the book of Becky Cloonan and drawing a mini-comic with a view to having it available to buy for those of you attending Thought Bubble this November.

You will be able to see that all my favorite tropes are covered - beards, boats, skeletons, the sea and it’s mysteries - and there will no doubt be more snippets posted between now and November.
