Take the pennant

Lars Brown has sent me a jam-centric drawing and I present it for your edification below.

Lars is the creator of "North World", the hottest new thing on the comics scene. He's got a book coming out, you'll enjoy reading it (if I know my onions - and I do).

Most haunted

I worked up a new tshirt design this morning. What do you think? (Nothing you say will make me change it unless you can produce a copy of your art degree certificate).

Following the inverse law of tshirt sales to design effort, I predict sales of around 4-7 units.

There's a nip in the air, autumn has arrived and to celebrate, I have finished this poster and will run it hotfoot to the printer for consumption! It's not for everyone but I hope it appeals to a few folks who like both of the concepts addressed.

I don't know if I'm sold on this yet but efforts persist.

[EDIT] The finished version is above!

Mystifying concepts desk

I have a lot of sketches knocking around for prints and posters that, as you have probably guessed, I will never make because of certain problems. Here's one that I quite liked, but should really be a poster for a rock show.

For example

and Jimmy Giggles

An H and a P

A while ago Gene Ha, America's leading (some would say premier) comic book artist asked me to send him a pencil sketch so he could mess around with it. There wasn't really much to it but this is what eventually came back:

That someone who has worked with Alan Moore would take an interest in my little venture gave me a huge swell head for at least a week. Thank you Gene!

Some thoughts on Apple's new iPod line

For crying out loud, Steve Jobs, if you're going to tuck your jumper in (which is a peculiar move on its own), use some of your millions to BUY A BELT. Sweet Jesus almighty and all the saints, learn to get dressed.

A single yellow glove

Peter Marigold is a fascinating designer whose work has some very clever real world applications. After a day spent basically destroying my living room then attempting to restore order, I found the sentiments expressed in this interview with Mr Marigold very soothing.

I think the enforced gouging and and repainting in the front room is a watershed moment, a call to arms to put childish things aside and shape up, thirty year old man! Maybe next time I'll show you the neat isthmus I made of smashed laminate flooring and underlay. Pleasing.
