Josh Champion – A talented guy

October 10, 2011

I’d like to quickly thank Josh for his help on making this blog!

Right, now on with the entry!

Josh Champion is an artist in the Wizzo, he was hired in April 2011 and since his hiring has become not only one of my favourite artists in the comic, but also a very good friend to me.

I discovered him first on the Dandy Facebook Page (Which if you have not liked yet, I strongly recommend liking!), he uploaded some mini strips of past Dandy classics such as Blinky, Jonah (Yep, he was in the Beano and the Dandy!) and Bully Beef & Chips. After realising this kid had a lot of talent I quickly got in touch with him and hired him a soon as possible.

From there we began working on some Wizzo ideas, Team Time was a definite one (Josh and his brother Max (who was later on hired as well!) had already created this story before joining the comic). From there more ideas started coming about and before we knew it, the creation of Baldy was beginning with Josh drawing and me, writing it! After that Mike’s Monkey became a Wizzo story (quite by accident!) after I realised Josh was very good at drawing monkeys.

Then came Cabbie, a story drawn by Josh and sometimes written by me and Where’s Baldy, a Where’s Wally-type game. As well as this Josh also did a brilliantly drawn Crazy Cartoons strip written by yours truly and he also did some brilliant ghosting for a Blong story going in Issue 4 which you’ll see very soon but for now I’m just going to leave you with this panel to get you in the mood. 🙂

Check out Josh’s AMAZING artwork on his deviantART Page: http://young-freddy.deviantart.com/ and check out his brand spanking new blog here: http://youngfreddy.wordpress.com/ and why not follow him while you’re on there? 😉

Anyway, that’s all for now,
