Tricky bits? What do you mean?

I do realise - and I hereby apologise for it - that we've been malingering outside this door for what probably feels like forever. But next time we'll be moving on. To some other room in the house! Our little manager will think out loud! He'll make a list! And he'll refuse to ask his Mum for help because that would be less than totally awesome. And he may even get around to booking the band's first gig...

Other stuff (after Earle K. Bergey)

Mine's just a crappy sketch - it was an exercise in drawing directly with the pen and without corrections - and not a patch on the original (below) but I think mine at least looks like she might actually use the gun.

There's a whole heap of old Earle K. Bergey pulp covers here. And they're fabulous.

More stipples

This is based on an old photo reputed to be of Charlotte Bronte although the jury seems to be out,and it may be on of those little mysteries which never quite get sorted. Although if it really is her, the guy who painted this one took some liberties.

A flock descends...

Here's Toru Takemitsu.

The title of the piece has them descending into a pentagonal garden but that title didn't impress much of a mental image in me. So I thought I'd have them exploding through his body instead.

Backing up a little bit

I'd left that little bit of business with "L'esprit de scalier" unfinished a while ago. The last time we saw him he was striding off to find some stairs. It's in his nature, after all. Anyway, he's found some.
Next time: more McMoist.

Weapon X

This is my 10-year-old son, as a 7-year-old, as Wolverine. With cutlery.
He just had that kind of expression in his school photo that year.
