Hey you guys!!!

Inspired by last year's Iain Dowie pumpkin I've decided to change the odd-shaped pumpkin I bought yesterday into Sloth from The Goonies

Plasticine Tatooine update

A quick Plasticine Tatooine update to say that, to date, the book has been a great success and that I've not got too many of my original run left. This has been thanks in part to some great features in the likes of The Guardian Guide, Guardian news app (below) and Guardian online here. The sculpted Star Wars rejects also appear in the September issue of Creative Review (bottom) and on the Creative Review Blog here (the comments on CR blog make me chuckle!). Click here to learn more about Plasticine Tatooine.

Plasticine Tatooine

Plasticine Tatooine is a 100% unofficial and completely made up collection of intergalactic nonsense featuring some of the more rubbish Star Wars characters sculpted lovingly from plasticine by my own fair hand. Find out more here www.plasticinetatooine.com

Faces on badges

I noticed the deadline for the stereohype annual badge fest was fast approaching so I thought I'd sneak these three faces under the wire so to speak.

Get Stuffed comedy logo

This is a logo I drew quite a few years back for Get Stuffed which is an excellent comedy club in Tring. If you're wondering why the logo is made of stuffed animals, that's because Tring's other main attraction is this bonkers museum full of stuffed animals (and hence the side-splitting strap line).

The reason I've decided to put it on the blog now is because I've just finished an eight week stand-up comedy course culminating in my first gigs in front of actual paying punters. Read all about it here. The first two of my four planned gigs went well but then I got a call to say my partner had gone into labour with our second child and was now fully dilated so I had to make a 30 minute drive to hospital to get there in time for the birth - I did make it but only after driving like Steve McQueen (except in a Toyota Yaris!)

Anyway, I really enjoyed the two sets I did manage so I'm hoping to do more soon but if you're ever in the area check out Get Stuffed as they attract some great established and up-and-coming acts and their Tringe Festival is currently in full flow with some top nights still to come.

A new season awaits.

The fixtures for next season have been released, hard to believe it all starts again in just over a month. Here is a short post (written before Claude left) detailing exactly what I would like from the Town next season over on fellow illustrator, Debra Orton's blog. Above is a picture of Sir Michael of Harfordshire just because.

Zombie Valentine's Linocut

Now available to buy as Tshirts from WeLoveFine.com

Cruising my local Clinton Cards in the weeks before Valentine's Day I noticed a cavernous gap in the market. There are all sorts of slushy teddy bear and bunny rabbit cards available but I couldn't find any that feature reanimated corpses or internal organs being eaten.
As I was sure that there must be a huge market for this kind of card I immediately set about rectifying the situation through the medium of linocut.
Pictures of the process (I'd forgotten how laborious linocutting is not to mention how high the risk of hand gouging is) along with the three finished hand coloured prints can be seen below.
