The Doctor is in

Unleash the medicine.
A good result, especially without Stevie G. Hopefully the season isn't totally out of reach. Taken to calling Torres 'Doctor' because he often has the cure for match woes. Just as he did today, powering past Rio to punch in the first goal. It was fellow twitterer Empire Of The Kop who coined the phrase. Go check out the site.
Did this image a while back, just been hanging around, waiting to be used for a such an occasion. Goofy image.

Scribble Kraken SCribble 坏头 狗

The dog was done at my desk this week whilst I used the excellent NCIKU online dictionary.
The ladies with the deformities was slowly pushed sround the page last night while watching the entire series of SPACED (also brilliant but images not related) while I was tidying up waiting for my girlfriend to return from San Francisco. If you needed to know that

You should get SPACED. A genius little Brit-com that spawned Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. But more on that later

Dr Rusty Venture

Had to do something to celebrate the return of Venture Bros. Season 4 opened with a brilliant tale. Almost beat the season 2 opener.
Anyhoo, here's a quick scribble I roughly coloured.
I may get round to doing the cool Brock illustration I had planned a year ago for season 3. It's still good...it's still good.


Do yourself a favour and get the season DVDs

From the dusty files: Night At The Museum 2

for the third issue of FiRST we looked at the truth behind the comedy historical characters used in A Night At The Museum 2. The film lasted less than a month from mid-May in Singapore , still going in Leicester Square in late August in UK. Anyway, it was a "hahaha this guy in reality slaughtered thousands Ahahahahahaha."
Art wise the idea was to produce some advertising banners, like the kind that would beused for a real exhibition. Here's the ones that trned out Okayest of all. Not bad manipulation for a set of limited pictures

Essential book: SLEEPER

Season 2 of Sleeper is out now. Which means a trip to the bookstore for me to buy both together.
It's essential reading. A seedy superpowered espionage noir that brought together the comicbook dream team of Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Dark and truly twisted, its genius is in putting forward the idea of low-rent supervillain wannabes. The ones with abilities but not the brains to be anything more than muscle and bagmen. Brubaker exposes the hierarchy from supervillain groupie to the illuminati-style real power behind the world.
If you are a fan of Infernal Affairs, then this comc book is perfect for you. A mid-level spy, Carver, with an ability is sent behind enemy lines to infiltrate the organisation. Only his boss knows he isn't rogue. Carver has to betray, maim, kill and destroy to keep up the pretense. Then his boss is put into a coma and Carver finds himself trapped with nowhere to get help, rising through the ranks and an evil genius set to in the mole in his organisation.
Its a work of genius and Phillips proves that no other artist could have done the job so well. Rough inks, realistic fugures and heay on the shadows. Phillips has been with Brubaker for two further projects: Criminal, like Sleeper but seedier and without superpowers. A great crime book where every character, even the background guys has a connection to other stories in varying degrees. 3 collections published so far.
Incognito is like the dark flip-side to the Incredibles superhero protection scheme. Again noir, and with concepts revitalised straight from the pulp novels of the 30s. Yet to be collected.

But now that Sleeper is complete, get it and love it.

Pulp fixation and WHY BOTHER?

I mean really. Why bother? I swear idiocy is contagious. Forget swine flu. The people you know could turn out to be complete and utter idiots.
Bah. Here's some scribble

Dinner gorilla

Sandwich at my desk, the glory of the BBC iplayer in my ears, 4B pencil in hand an all too empty sketchbook to scibble in. I like that.

Tea pondering gorilla and a staring kitten

The gorilla was a farewell card for a kinda-colleague.
I really don't know about the cat. Oh yeah. Tried drawing a proper one but it didn't go right. As ever...
