The Wrestling

A friend mentioned the wrestling to me the other day - not ANY wrestling but the '70s 'World of Sport' style wrestling which ALWAYS uses the definite article. For some reason it was never just wrestling. It was THE wrestling!
Always reminds me of rainy Saturday afternoons as a child so these memories were whirling through my head when I drew it in my sketchbook. I *might* have taken a little bit of artistic licence (see who you can spot in the crowd!)

I've posted the original sketchbook piece below to give you a little peek behind the whole process. I drew it with a couple of Rotring art pens & a bit of strategic Sharpie. I've added some extra characters in the background digitally but most of the original pen work is still there then the colour was added in Photoshop.

(If you're fascinated by the whole era The Wrestling by Simon Garfield is really worth a read!)

A dalek, a feline Bond, & a fat Captain America...

I drew this in response to an article called 'Fandom is Broken' by Devin Faraci dealing with fans' sometimes obsessive & aggressive proprietorial stance with the characters / stories they purport to love. (& a great excuse to draw a dalek & a fat Captain America into the bargain of course!)

Doctor Menace!

As it's Doctor Who's 52nd birthday today. I sometimes like to sneak the odd extraneous detail into book illustrations for the eagle eyed... (& slightly geeky) This is from The Diary of Dennis the Menace - Canine Carnage

Happy 49th birthday Doctor Who!

#Geekfact: The first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast on Saturday November 23rd 1963 (even though he's supposed to be about 900-ish or something really)

Dysnumria


This was drawn especially for a dear friend's brilliant party on 11/11/11 taking in numerology,the bible, the Pixies, Doctor Who & a few silly animals - very much like a slice of my life really...
