Here's a work in progress for the Scooby Gang.. that was one of the ideas I had for the 'Teenager' brief. Fred and Scoob are being worked on at the moment, and I think Shaggy needs some working over ( I don't think he's long enough!!).. but I like Velma and Daphne a lot.
Smashing entry from Dave for this week.. really like it.. makes me think that a Buffy Style television series is in order!
Seems that we both found the word a little easier that we first thought this week.. I actually had a few ideas.. but ran with my favourite (nabbed from a Misfits song title) and re-imagined in my own 'Award Winning' style!! The 1950's TV Serial style 'Teenager from Mars'.
New word... 'ENTRY'.... oh by golly!!!

Hullo... Only me again.. New KISS album 'Sonic Boom' due to hit in October.. VERY EXCITED!!! Here's 3/4 of the band I doodled the other day.. I did Eric the Cat.. but didn't much care for it.. so I'll post that one again when I get round to deciding why I don't like it...
PS.. My entry for War of Words is coming along nicely!!.. Also putting together a small portfolio of work to submit to New Sugar with a hope of being featured again.
PPS.. T-Shirt design is ongoing.. It's a lot more difficult to decide on a design that you're happy with than it looks.. The last prototype I had done SUCKED!!!

This week turned out to be a doozie! Both of us couldn't get songs out of our heads.. for a while I was wrestling with some Iron Maiden inspired doodlery (Fight of Icarus/Where Eagles Dare) and Dave couldn't shake off James Bond's Live and let die - as performed by WINGS!!.. so he didn't.. and he produced this smashing piece of voodoo hoodoo! Another winner from my esteemed colleague!
I myself toyed with WINGS (the band) briefly.. bastardizing 'Mull of Kintyre' and rechristening it "Mullet on Fire' with a visual of a flame headed Paul McCartney.... but I felt it was too abstract for people to appreciate.
So there I was struggling again, when I did a doodle of a head.. and some boobies.. shortly followed by a body and a cloak that looked like wings.. then I thought of a Danzig song "Under her black wings'... and was happy again!
New word.. TEENAGER

Time, time, time... I hated this week's word for some reason. I couldn't shake 'Blade Runner' from my mind.. so i went for it.. tried something a little (tiny bit) different by producing a graphical motif of the Dove from Roy's final scenes (and some of the finest in cinematic history if you ask me!) and added in a statement from earlier in the movie when Brion James character is beating the crap out of Harrison Ford.. "Wake Up!.. Time to die"
Dave proved to be far more successful with the word, not only producing a cracking piece of art, but also bragging about all of the ideas he had for the word over on his blog... Show off!!!
Next week... WINGS... gulp!

Last weeks entry finally posted.. Dave was very busy with work so things ran on a little.. Still, at the end of the day he submitted a fun (and clever) pic of Harley Quinn (after much deliberation with other ideas!) and for me.. a tribute to Mars Attacks (that needs a little work!)
Next week (... this week!!!) TIME....

Email me at - firstname.lastname@example.org putting 'poster art' in the title if you are interested.
I'm hoping to get a T-shirt out soon to compliment the stickers and things you can already buy on www.moo.com and my 2 books at www.blurb.com (shameless plug). I aim to issue a series of short run digital prints of my art in the coming months at A3 and A2, and also look to produce some of my music posters for sale too.
Will take some pictures of my shit over the weekend and blog them next week.
Remember, I might be famous one day, so these prints are a steal!! FNAR!
