He-Man Ready For Battle

March 30, 2012

About a month back I submitted a piece to Ballad Of after I recieved an email asking for submissions to their latest publication.

It sounded like fun to me so I made some He-man stuff. I was actually suprised at how much material I came up with once I got past the obvious she-man and questionable sexuality jokes. Still, those jokes are the best.

The piece I submitted is a little tamer visually, than this piece and I had intended to include Man at Arms fully geared up and feeling stupid, but I think it works just as well this way.

On the subject of my submission, I have no idea what will become of it other than the email I recieved saying that ‘We will file it and let you know the outcome when we go to print.
Judging from the work recently featured on the blog it doesn’t look like my strip fits in with their vibe. I could be wrong

I think i’ll give it half a month or so then just post it on here regardless.

Bogie Bastards

March 29, 2011

I once wrote a book…

When I was 7.

It was called Bogie Bastards.

I’ve written other books, but this one as far as I am aware was the first and last of it’s kind.

I guess the idea behind it was something in the same vein as an activity book since it contained an array of creativity from jokes and doodles to song parodies and very short stories such as my star trek fan fictions which consisted mostly of swear words.

What shocked me most were some of the ‘draw-er-rings wot I did’. The one that grabbed me most was the image in which the double quiffed protagonist is threatening an anonymous stranger in a doorway with a gun whilst verbally abusing him, all the while his penis protrudes from his trousers standing semi erect and pointing in the same direction as the gun.

And just to prove that I’m not lying here is said image:

What can I say, it was the 90’s.

I have thus been inspired to recapture the essence of the original and recreate the protagonist using my skillz.

I don’t think my parents will be too happy about me posting this. I’m not sure they’re even fully aware of my little masterpiece – but fuck it.

Some people may think that there was and still is something wrong with me and that I am a product of a twisted society and bizarre upbringing. Well you may be right, you may be wrong. Either way I couldn’t care less.
