Barnaby Ward drawing

The super-talented Barnaby Ward of Sixteen Miles To Merricks and somefield.com fame sent me the picture below, isn't it fantastic? I was cock-a-hoop.



I've finished my Whitby poster, I ghosted it up a bit and now someone is coming to the party. I'll put it on sale once they're in stock.

Fun! I like the balloons. Maybe the ghosts will carry them when they go home.

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Ghosted it up a bit? That's quite an understatement!

Dharmabum said...

I so want to be invited to this party!!!

"Wow" is definitely an understatement on those two pieces.

I put the unfinished version of your print up on my workplace computer wallpaper, and two coworkers noticed it and stopped to admire. "How cute!" "Look at the jujube ghosties!".

Now I have updated with the newer version. When they notice the additional spirits, I will claim they were always there, and convince them my computer is haunted! Thank you.

Very nice! I find the buildings and landscape in the background to be particularly lovely.

I applaud both of these so hard my hands are giving off radiation.

Not that I think you need more work, but this picture looks very much a screen cap from a point and click RPG. Shelley has just solved the puzzle of getting the ghosts to the party, presumably by hiding something horrible in the present. Esther will then give her the balloons so she can go to a location previously out of reach.

mr. allison,
as always we are of late on commenting how worried we are about your financial situation here in mexico.
however, poor art and design students can't do much for you besides lending you brushes and making a brill tortilla soup. never minding that, we have come up with an idea that might make your finances a little easier on you.
Don't worry, we're pretty sure it's legal world wide.
you should make e-cards with some of your one minute cracks.
you don't need to know the whole of sgr history to enjoys those, and it might win you more new fans as you so desire.
we're not sure how those e-cards companies make money but they must MUST make some since there's so many of them and most of them are complete crap so you'll have no competitor among the internet seas.
hopefully this idea will help you.
suerte!
m.v.

oh my! i think you may have designed another poster that i must have! really brilliant - love the pink sky!

only where am i going to find room for more on my walls, which begin to resemble a webcomics museum?

Ghost it up you did, sir. You ghosted it up but good.

The ghost following Amy is the only one to have arms. Does this mean that in life he was especially good? Or especially wicked?

Helen said...

Love it! Def getting the poster, there's a nice space on my wall waiting for it.

Martin said...

Hampus: I think you're onto something. SGR point-and-click adventures!

I would love to have this enlivening my walls and eyes.
