TRACKS interview with The Beat


Daniel has been interviewed about Tracks, our strip published today in The Phoenix, for The Beat. Find out about the strip, how we developed it and see the first page.

New Readers... Start Here! Best of 2013: Halcyon & Tenderfoot


"The creative team have given us something really special and this series deserves to be picked up by a bigger publishing company." - New Readers… Start Here! on Halcyon & Tenderfoot by Art Heroes.


With Tracks being published in The Phoenix this week, we thought we’d share some of the character designs with you.

Scroll through the pictures above to see our lead characters, Bianca and Freddy, in various stages of development and some practice sketches. Because creating comic book characters does take some time and hard work - they don’t just spring onto the page fully formed!

Tracks, a four-page biker story, will feature in The Phoenix issue 112. On sale Friday 21st February at all good comic and book shops. You can subscribe to The Phoenix through their awesome website.

The Art Heroes team has a strip in the amazing comic, The Phoenix, next week!

You’ll be able to pick up The Phoenix issue 112 featuring TRACKS from great comic shops, and some branches of Waterstones and Waitrose from Thursday/Friday next week.

If you’re based in the same area as Art Heroes, you’ll be able to pick up a copy from Travelling Man and Waitrose in Newcastle and from Waitrose in Hexham. And you can pick up copies of The Phoenix from their awesome website!

Art Heroes at Thought Bubble photo round-up.

And the winner of our Thought Bubble Character Competition 2013 is…
Jim Hawkins by Jake
First of all, this design is annotated. So it was already in with a good chance before we read the details. The only thing better than annotation is a cross-section. And none of the entries had a cross-section in them.
Aside from the annotation, the drawing is great, with a fantastic design for the character. In terms of characteristics, there’s a lot here that could be used as a launchpad for anything from a series of one-page gags to an indie graphic novel.
Well done, Jake. You’ll be receiving your goodie bag prize very soon!
