Seth and Ghost (more cute...)

These are some character designs for a story I'm working on. Seth is a boy born with an octopus for a head by mistake. Ghost is...well...a ghost.

I've been thinking about this story for a while. You might recognise Seth and Ghost from the colour picture at the top of this page. The other characters in those pictures will also be involved once I get it done. It could take a while...

This may be the cutest thing I have ever drawn...

...for now.

Miscellaneous debris

I've been working on something that I can't really post here until it's done (if at all). To take a break from it I've been finishing off a few older pictures that I found going through some sketch books. They're a little random but here we go:

First up I figure this is some kind of Golf playing gangster type. I must have drawn this around my birthday judging by the remembrance day poppy for the head and the partially visible 11.11 tattoo on his arm. I quite like the design so maybe he'll make it into a comic one day.

Next, a family of weird bird creatures. I don't really have a lot to say about this other than that the one at the front is really cute.

Finally a picture of Lord Shark and The Fireclown (who I think I've posted pictures of before). I particularly like the zombie cookie and the unimpressed looking sun.

I found a few other bits and pieces that I'll probably finish up in the next few days too.

I've been away in London all week so haven't really been able to do much drawing so here's a sketch from a couple of months ago of Ash wearing Pikachu's skin. Lovely...

More new stuff soon...

Link is Unusually Happy

I was talking to a friend yesterday about Zelda games and how Wind Waker was kind of a disappointment because of all the water and the lack of horse. The more we talked about it though the more we agreed that we were wrong and it was actually pretty great. The combat was improved, you had the boomerang that could hit multiple targets, the grappling rope, some great bosses, the overall cartoony style that put some people off but which I really liked, and so on. So in honour of Wind Waker here's a picture of Link looking happy that we like his game.

Terrifying monsters of the 1980s

I love 80s monsters (and monsters from other decades to a lesser extent). Below are some of my favourites from a selection of movies I've been watching recently. I'll list the movies at the bottom in case anyone wants to check them out.

Top row: Brain Damage, Monster in the Closet
2nd row: Night Beast, The Deadly Spawn
3rd row: House 2, C.H.U.D, Troll
4th row: Basket Case, Humanoids from the Deep
Bottom row: Ghoulies, Terrorvision, Critters

I particularly recommend Terrorvision. It's about as 80s as you can get...

Of all the things I expected to do at the pub tonight, a small watercolour painting of the Little Gent was not on the list.

Cthulhu Air Pirates

but in the meantime, some of his followers fly around in tentacled airships slung beneath giant flying fish.
