KIND of inspired by Travis Charest's Spacegirl (here).
Kel of RocketRaygun and co-starring in my dressed-as-a-dog project is the other hand here.
I write, he draws. Four panels per installment. Then he writes and I draw. There's no plot, and style might change.

SuperGorilla again

Been a really odd day. Left work last night at midnight to see Priscilla. Then leave the house at 4am to work on the GRAND OPTICAL ILLUSION. 7am race back across the road to wake Priscilla and make sure she gets off to the airport. 9am back across the road to complete the GRAND OPTICAL ILLUSION. 12pm back home for the old SS&S, well the first S anyway.
2pm Back into work for the real shift. Zoning out looking up facts about the Pickens plan and start scribbling Gorillas in my Moleskine (Hemingway I know. Picasso I know. Who hell Chatwin?) using my Derwent Onyx. Frankly not as dark as Cretacolor watercolour graphite. Anyway. Have this thing at the moment of putting the Superman regalia on Gorillas. No reason other than they really suit each other in my eyes. Enjoy.

Hello Germany

A big thanks to and for featuring Dr Manhatten's Rock School.
I've had visits from Flensberg to Kempten.

I left a note on Nerdcore in German. At least I hope it made sense. I translated it into German with Babelfish. Possibly not a great move.
Go to both sites to check out some very cool stuff.
Danke Chaps

Mo Doggy, no problem

Turn your keyboard into drums and lose a day of work.

Press B twice, get the name of this blog :)

King Eric

Some scribble for the football pages. It should go against my beloved Liverpool, but Eric Cantona was brilliant to watch. A true football genius and a pleasure to watch. Plus he was fully justified to go Kung Fu on that idiot.
To think that he wanted to go to Liverpool initially. Utter waste

Another Caped Gorilla

Purely Photoshop this one.
Splotchy brush, with other dynamics etc. I dont know really. Its not round anyway.

Dr Manhattan's Rock School

Whilst doing a Watchmen project for work. Created this to help me think.
In the suit he kinda looks like Bowie if he did Ziggy Stardust while in Tin Machine

Painted gorillas of the night

So its 5am, can't sleep, I'm in bed and watching Voyage To The Bottom Of the Sea. How better to also pass the time than scribble another gorilla.
Watercolour pencils on card treated with a few layers of gesso primer.
A bit heavy on the blue eye shadow. This isnt a proper scan, its a photo, but it does look better the more bleary eyed you are

Gorilla in a cape

Just to pass the time and to take my mind off stabbings
