Now the year is very much underway, hopefully I’ll be posting more often again! Please give me some feedback if you can!!
This is a Work-In-Progress portrait of the great Shemp Howard, the original third stooge. I’ll be inking it soon. Shemp doesn’t get enough attention or kudos, IMO!
Well… this is not really the place for a debate on the issue, but frankly I’m not at all happy with or impressed by the current incarnation of Ye Doctor in Doctor Who series 11. I feel Jodie Whittaker is hopelessly miscast** and the series has been all-round terrible (with the bizarre exception of Bradley Walsh, I’m shocked to hear myself saying)—and I’m not particularly inclined to watch more of them. According to the current strawman arguments, that makes me some kind of -IST. I assume most sane people realise the issue is slightly more nuanced…
Nonetheless, I did have a go at drawing Jodie as Dockeroo and the result is kinda visually interesting. Or so I think, anyhow. BTW, this artwork is for sale, so feel free to make offers! 🙂
NOTE: THIS ARTWORK IS NOW SOLD. If you’re interested in a similar piece, drop me a line!!
Below Jodie, a couple of small sketchcards of monster characters I like whose names begin with H. Open to offers on those too!!
**Obviously, the brilliant Joanna Lumley would’ve been a far superior choice, per her non-canonic, jokey 1999 turn as Da Doc in The Curse of the Fatal Death. But I guess she’s a little too old now? Well, y’know, in shitty ageist terms, anyhow……
Just a couple of new drawings finished recently. First up is a portrait of David Banks and his alter ago, whom he portrayed in the classic run of Doctor Who during the 1980s, namely, the Cyberleader (of the Cybermen). Secondly, a pinup of Orion and (as a large floating head!) Darkseid, from Jack Kirby’s New Gods.
Just messing around with the old Lovecraftian creature traits in mixed media.
Time for Chris’s turn as the Monster. No doubt the finishes will follow at some point!
More on portrait commissions here.
Probably to be inked, but thought I’d post the pencils stage.
A4 portrait, ink & graphite. I shall be offering this for sale on eBay soon, unless anyone makes an offer in the meantime. I’m available for similar commissions, incidentally. E-mail me if you have any questions or requests. More soon!
A birthday present sketch for Steve on date inscribed. In the style (roughly) of Chris Achilleos.
Legendary director of Bride of Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, etc…
