What with number two boy on his way and my laptop about to give up the ghost any day now I really need to raise a bit of extra cash, so I’m having a bit of an art sale.
All original art pages from Knight & Dragon, The Dead Queen Detectives and Amber And The Egg are now on sale for £50 each. All pages are pen and ink on A3 (297x420mm) Bristol Board. The Dead Queen Detective pages also include the lettering, the Amber And The Egg ones don’t. £4.50 postage in the UK, £10 ROW, although unless you order huge amounts that push the weight of the package up there’s only one postal charge per delivery rather than per page (should you feel so inclined to order more than one page).
Additionally pretty much anything on my DeviantArt page that isn;t labelled as a commission is for sale, so if you’re interested in anything let me know and I can work out a price (rough guide £20 for A4 black and white pieces, £35 for A3 black and white pieces).
I can possibly fit in commission pieces as well although I do have a couple lined up already and I have no idea how busy I’m going to be when our new one moves in, so I warn you now my timescale for drawing them may be a little longer than normal. Usual commission rates apply; £35 A4 black and white, £50 A3 black and white.
If you are interested drop me an e-mail to email@example.com
As usual any signal boosts very much appreciated.
SuperTed (SC4/BBC1 1982-94)
"This is a story about an ordinary teddy bear. When he was made they found something wrong with him and threw him away, like a piece of rubbish, into an old dark store room.
Then from outer-space a spotty man brought him to life with his cosmic dust. He took him to a magic cloud where Mother Nature gave him special powers.
That bear became… SuperTed!”
Holy crap. I remember SuperTed. It played on Nick when it first started up.
did he just rip off his fucking skin and have clothes underneath
Cartoons! Full of visceral horror for everyone!
You think you’re kidding. My sibs and I were mighty “WTF?” when Ted was left mourning the apparent grisly death of Spotty. It was either decapitation or bisection, one of the two.
Any cartoon with a gay skeleton wearing pink fluffy slippers was fine by me.
We got the complete series on DVD when Callum was very little nad he loves it. It’s possibly even more barking than I remeber it being when I was little.
Long Story Short: You stole my art, used it for commercial purposes, and won’t even respond to my polite inquiries.
Financial and legal complications aside, I hope you…
I don’t care who you are or why you do it, stealing art is never acceptable.
Things I’ve Said to My Children, a series of visuals that illustrate some of the absurd things that father and illustrator Nathan Ripperger has found himself having to say to his children.
I’ve not said *exactly* these things, but not far off. Being a parent measn you end uo saying stuff you’d never actually think any sane person would say.
As it turns out, my original graphic novel, Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell, written by Paul Dini is coming out in a mere 11 weeks (on May 21st)! To gear up for that, I thought it’d be neat to post a series of small sneak peeks of the book from week to week. Above is our first resaet — excuse me, teaser. Enjoy!
More coming next week! Until neht!
Can’t bloody wait.
this needs to be in every art history books in 10 years
I never even
How did they get away with that
I LOVE THIS
What do you mean how did they get away with it?
History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.
Gender politics and gender identity as we view them *now* are drastically different from how they were viewed 100 years ago. It doesn’t mean everything was lovely and rosy (far from it) but when we look at old photos and see, for example, a couple of men holding hands or kissing it certainly doesn’t mean they were a couple (they *might* be, but usually not). To understand photos things like that you need to look at the context, what the societal norms were at the time.
On a related note if you are in any way interested in this area then do yourself a favour and pick up Fanny & Stella: The Young Men Who Shocked Victorian England. It’s a slightly florid book, but very well written for that (the style suits the subject) and a fascinating look into the world of cross-dressing, gender identity and what would now been deemed queer life in the mid to late 19th century.
That’s one of the best happy dances I’ve ever seen.
