In Good Company....

     As a tribute to my good friend Brett Ewins, Forbidden Planet International ran a tribute blog on him and his art, http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/2012/the-art-of-brett-ewins/ 

They've very kindly run a seperate feature on some Bad Company art that Brett and I did together... for a proposed prequel we did back in 2005.  http://forbiddenplanet.co.uk/blog/2012/in-good-company/

Brett was also responsible with Steve Dillon for setting up DEADLINE Magazine, which unveiled TANK GIRL to the world.

Hope you'll enjoy it.

Love to all of Brett, and all his family.

CUSTOM TANK GIRL TOY

      
 It's only a flesh wound you cunts!!!! 

 The talented Martin Miller has made a custom TANK GIRL figure, from a 3A Lil’Shadow head (head customised by Lance Alexander!) and curvalicios 3A toy body!

It's based on my cover to TANK GIRL - BAD WIND RISING.

This was one of the toys I'd hoped we'd get to produce when I did the design work for the now sadly aborted TG toy venture (sadly, it wasn't to be...)

Anyway... enjoy this Custom job in all her glory!

 I'm inspired to make my own now actually!

Staff Sergeant Tom Rabjohn Memorial

Staff Sergeant Tom Rabjohn Memorial 

      On October 3, 2009, Staff Sergeant Tom Rabjohn was killed in action when he discovered an Improvised Explosive Device was about to detonate. Tom had moments to act and shielded two other soldiers from the blast.

Staff Sergeant Tom Rabjohn
     Tom's friend, Mark Schweikert, a fellow police officer, has organised a memorial appeal to raise money for Tom Rabjohn's family.
     I've donated the original pencilled art to the cover of my sketchbook, and a colour print of the finished art. It will go live on EBAY in 2 weeks... I'll post a link as soon as it's live online.

     I hope you'll bid generously... it's going towards an extremely good and worthy cause.

Check out Mark's COMIC ART FANS gallery, and you'll see some of the incredible art donated, that will be auctioned off.

Thanks for your support everyone.
