Had an idea while walking home and did a quick sketch before bed.


Don’t Panic!

July 5, 2011

Okay, so I’m stilling using an old not-very-smart-phone. A Nokia E63. But one of the nice things about it is the degree to which I’ve been able customise it. Both in terms of sounds and visuals.
Obviously, as a Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy fan I’ve long noted how phones have pretty much become The Book from that series. Hence the normal New Message sound I use is that of The Book starting from the BBC radio series. And hence I had to create a personalised screen saver (and attempt to recreate Rod Lord’s 1980’s graphic from the TV series);

I present it above as a (well, linked to) 600 by 400. The version the above links to is animated as below. Feel free to use it as you wish.

I, obviously, use a 320 by 240 version. To fit my now laughably low res screen.

As the Bat-Copter approaches Amity…

June 22, 2010

As the Bat-Copter approaches Amity...As I haven’t posted anything for a while, I’m sticking up this coloured version of a drawing I did for a friend’s birthday. I don’t normally do birthday cards, but he has a deep love of Jaws, was working on one of DC’s Bat titles at the time, and the inspiration hit on the day itself so I quickly sketched, inked and tweeted it during a break.

I later coloured it, just because, and realised I’d inverted the yellow and black Robin “®” emblem. Sometimes these things matter. This isn’t one of them.

If you’re not familiar with Jaws and the 1966 Batman film, this will pretty much pass you by.

Winter Sunbrella

March 27, 2010

Inspired by a complaint about how cold it was despite being a sunny day.


Not sure how well it comes across that the guy’s “parasol” is a giant magnifying glass. Might have to go back and work more on it at some stage.
