Happy Birthday, Jack Kirby!

Jack Kirby would have been 93 today. Here's the pic I did of the great man for the excellent Kirby-Vision blog.

DoodlePlanet August

Here's my (not quite finished) piece from DoodlePlanet last night. I forgot to take any photos of my own work so this pic is courtesy of Mr John Allison and his "smart" phone. Once I find a clear pic of the finished canvas I'll put it up. Another great night with brilliant work from John Allison, Dan Berry, Julian Kimmings, David Setter (the founder of DP), 8bit and many more. Have a look at the Facebook group for more pics.

I've Inked John Allison!

John Allison, artist and writer of the truly excellent Scary Go Round and Bad Machinery, has invited people to have a go at inking his pencils. An interesting experiment, I thought, so I gave it a go. See the original pencils HERE and John's inked version HERE. I've never inked anyone's pencils but my own before. This is a first!

Here. Hair. Here.

I've been drawing big hair again. Will I ever tire of drawing hair? I think not. I'm holding out for that lucrative Herbal Essences contract.

The Grimble Twins

Aw, I used to love it when these guys would appear on Top of the Pops! Eddie (on the right) was such a joker! I can't believe he tried to eat Gary Davies during the Radio One Roadshow! Good job Jakki Brambles was there to distract him. For an extra 10 points - what was the name of the Grimble Twins first UK top 10 single?

UPDATE - The winner of the extra 10 points is Laurie Pink who correctly answered "Tickly Ribs!". Well done, Laurie! A satin Grimble Twins tour jacket stained in the blood of Gary Davies is on it's way to you now!

Here's a recent Insurance Times commission for an article about claimants being given new rights to pursue the insurers of insolvent businesses. In other words, previously dead claims being brought back to life - Zombie insurance!! As you can imagine this was a joy to do. I've even managed a Hitchcock-style cameo - I'm on the left with a pencil sticking out of my head next to Louise with a pin lodged in her eyeball (a REAL injury!). Click on the image to get a better view of the carnage. Original pencils below for, you know, comparison an' that.

The nice people at Malibu asked me to decorate one of their new limited edition "blank" bottles as part of their current "Malibu By U" campaign. Here's my contribution.
