At last! If anyone’s heard me mention before that I’d commissioned Ben Bates to draw some characters and wondered I hadn’t posted said commissions on Tumblr, it’s because I was waiting for Ben to post them himself on his dA with some thoughts. Click through to read them!
This is a post I’ve wanted to do for a good long time. Do please note this is long and image heavy. No credits for each image because the focus is the art and they’re all the same artist, but I’ll give issue numbers and story titles. If you’re looking on the Dashboard, give the pictures a click to…
This is a great read, make sure you check it out.
Finally got my original Nigel Dobbyn Knuckles art framed. I;ve owned it since Summer of Sonic 2009!

Just over two and a half years ago, a wonderful man sent me this original piece. It is the pride of my Sonic collection, and I will cherish it forever. You can not has it.
I don’t have enough bowls for how jelly I am, bro.
A warehouse full of jelly here too. I remember seeing this at Summer of Sonic. Man, I would love to own some original Elson S.T.C art, he was one of my biggest influences growing up.
I always liked this nice little shoutout to the UK’s Fleetway Sonic Comic.
Wow didn’t know about this! S.T.C characters cameo in Archie Sonic issue 134.
Stunning fan art of one of the most underrated Sonic the Comic strips.
For Summer of Sonic I decided to do something just like I did for the Devmeet the week before and got an art collaboration set up, this time a page of Sonics!
In total 13 artists joined in, including Sonic the Comic legends Nigel Kitching and Nigel Dobbyn (by joined in I mean I queued up to ask for them, heh!). Go to the DA link for a full list for peeps that added to this!
