A very shitty bit of news.

So, this is now becoming my site of woe – only posting in times of bummer.

Anyway, just checked my email to find that Mr G. Downie of the most awesomely awesome Tragically Hip has terminal brain cancer.

Really frickin’ sad.

Just shitty. Anyway, all the best Mr Downie and I very, very much need to be getting tickets for the summer shows.

Really, no words do justice.


The thrill is gone…

So, I never post anymore on my sadly defunct and lonely site. Plus I NEVER get upset by ‘celebrity death’ stuff.

But, just need to say RIP to Mr BB King. My introduction to the blues as a (very) geeky young fellow and a constant ever since.

Never feel sad about these things but, today, genuinely moved.

Bye fella.

I only ever really wanted a break…

…I’ve been away for too long.

(Thanks to the ‘Garden for that one)

Anyway, yes, not been adding much. I shall apologise no longer – take me as you find me etc.

So, not to ramble just to add.

Basically herewith be a bit of the ‘new’ version of Thomas and Tiger (again, a sort of ‘redux’ version as I immediately dislike the old one as soon as it’s finished) and a bit of a new thing called ‘My Dad is Bad’.

Character design for this one took ages…

byes fer noo…

My Dad is Bad T and T version 2

The sweet sound of patent approval, comin’ down in powdery sparks

Oh man, that took a while…
Final tweaks to T & T took HOURS. But is now finished.

After all my gamuffin’ about not doing it in colour I did it in colour. Only for that to (re)convince me to not do it in colour. Is it any wonder it takes so long?

Anyway, I’ve blurbed it as usual so I can have a copy to read to E and F and there’s a preview linkie thing that should work below (if i can remember how to do it).

To be clear as I know this caused confusion last time out – this is not the whole book. It is a preview. So the end will be secret until (a) you are foolish enough to buy a pricey copy from Blurb (on which I make no profit or mark-up I hasten to add) or (b) some lovely publisher does the decent thing…


Meantimes, here’s colour version of a page that I did not use…

if you’re prepared, here’s what I propose to do

Yeah, daily posting!

Anyway, you know when you just think AHHHHHHH! I am an eedjit?

I just put together a submission for an agency that I know are very specific about how and what they’ll consider. Proofed it, prooofed it, prooooooofed it. Sent it.

Looked again – yup, two minor typos. Eedjit. Only very minor, and caused (I believe) by the port from word to aol format but it may just mean I’m binned before I even begin. Penny, if you’re looking at this by any chance – sorry…

Anyway, topical picture post today now the Dark Knight is rocking the suburbs again. If you don’t know which (awesome) original piece of artwork this is lampooning then you need to read more comics. Everyone needs to read more comics anyway.

Yay comics! Made me the man I am today…

and remeber kids – aways spelldcheck.
