The Outrage Book Cover

January 28, 2014

I finished this one off at 4am with an eyegraine and in dire need of sleep.

the outrage Book

In case you were wondering, no, the book is not real. It is as fictional as the author. I can however reveal an excerpt from the book but don’t tell the publishers (wink, wink):

‘She was outraged.

There she stood on the threshold of the dining room in what she once belived was her home, her beautiful home, to find Michael, the Daschund making love to her grand piano.

The rage took hold and she screamed. She screamed loudly.

It was like an earthquake.’

Why do I do this stuff?

I’m sick of George Lucas.

March 12, 2012

George Lucas clearly has no artistic integrity because not only can’t he leave well enough alone, he has to pimp out these wonderful characters that I and many others love.

Who here wants to see Chewbacca selling shampoo? I don’t. But it’s inevitable.

I saw these Vodafone ads and was angry. I didn’t cry, I’m past the disappointment. I’m just so full of rage.

JOSH SMASH!!

R2D2 and C3PO selling electronics disappointing, but I see what you’ve done there.

Darth Vader sellig PCs at christmas…you’ve lost me.

Yoda? Phones? WTF? Oh wait, I see it…You’ve got some 3D version of Ep1 The Phantom Menace coming out and you want to reinforce the mass perception of a CGI yoda over the puppet one you replaced in the film. Very nice. Very Clever. Vodaphone. Genius.

(I’ve altered these a little in order to bring out the true meaning of the ad campaign)

It’s an interesting debate as to whether an artist should be allowed to change their work once it’s in the public domain. The way I see it, once it’s out there in the public it has been given. You don’t take back gifts from people just like you don’t take back art and alter it.

What Lucas clearly doesn’t realise is Star Wars is bigger than him. Sure he started it but he had a huge team working on the original films so sole creative credit should not go to him.

Star Wars to me is a lot like a beautiful woman with a great personality, a couple of spots and a slight lisp.

It’s love at first sight, she’s perfect. However one day a few years down the line she gets a boob job, you don’t mind this so much because you like big fake boobs. Still it’s not enough for her and gets a nose job and a facelift.

You tolerate this because you love and tell her she doesn’t need it and that she was perfect before. Then you notice that her lisp is gone. You didn’t realise how much you loved that lisp, it’s silly really but it gave her character.

She then goes and gets a sex change. Several surgeries, some hormone treatment and a clothes change later you find that she’s not the person you fell in love with originally. Not only does she look alien and sound different but her personality has changed somewhat too. Having said that you still care for her because love knows no bounds and she is the mother of your children.

You soon learn that it has been her father who has been manipulating into changing herself because all he’s ever wanted in life is a son and hs wife has only given him daughters.

Furthermore he’s been messing around with science and has attempted to clone her in order to start over, but the cloning process was imperfect and he has created a severely mentally and phsyically handicapped mutant female child with possible psychic powers.

Now any sane person would have the father put away somewhere he could do no harm, yet he seems to be roaming free. It won’t be long now before we see the fruits of his unholy experiments lord help us all…

Kings of Power 4Billion%

November 12, 2010

I have been trying to find this video for a while, I just didn’t know what it was called so it took a while.

I’m not quite sure how to put what i’m feeling into words…

Whilst i’m thinking, check it out: Paul Robertson‘s – Kings of Power 4Billion%

Is pretty mental, I love it.

Forget Your Love

March 2, 2010

I feel like I should post something, just to let people know that i’m still here.

Yesterday I was in Brixton and found some free books lying around. I picked out some of the cooler looking ones mainly because of their nice cover art and others for their intriguing titles. One little gem that caught my attention was a 30p romance mini-comic called ‘Forget Your Love‘.

I don’t know who wrote or drew it, but for some reason there’s a picture of Simon Mayo on the back cover. Anyway, I thumbed through it to see if there was anything interesting in it and thought it’d be fun to rearrange and re-word the text and pictures slightly to give it a different meaning, possibly an incoherant nonsensical one.

For now it’s just one panel and the beginnings of a little idea, here is what I’ve done so far:

The colouring is a bit shoddy (I did it at 5.30am), i’m going to go for a more tacky 80’s tracksuit colour scheme if that means anything to anyone.

I’ll also probably re-draw the entire thing once i’ve got a nice little story made because I don’t want to get screwed for nicking someones work and I think I can make the visuals better.

The Man Who Loved Breasts

January 8, 2010

There’s a comic i read about a year or so ago called The Man Who Loved Breasts by Robert Goodin.

I loved it, it had some other funny stuff in it too, it was really cool. It still is so check it out!

Anyway i went to his site the other day and that lead me to a blog of his called Covered. It’s a blog where people do their own renditions of comic book covers. There’s some cool stuff on there one of my favourties is Jughead because of it’s simplicity and it’s pretty funny.

It’s awesome. It’s my favourite thing on the internet at the moment (i haven’t been out much).

I haven’t been doing much drawing lately either, which i feel quite upset about it. I’ve been storyboarding for my FMP and then making it into an animatic, it’s been a bit of a drain and all i’ve really done is the odd doodle on the train.

So I intend on doing one or two covers, maybe five…
