Pan and Abe, Abe and Pan


Just did some quick sketches then photoshoped them, (maybe I should have just kept them as sketches).

Anywho, these are two of my favourite fictional characters. Abe from Hellboy and Pan from Pan's Labyrinth. I really enjoyed Guillermo del Torro's version of the Hellboy movie: Colourful and quirky, and how could I possibly forget Pan's Labyrinth! Also directed by the same guy. Must watch again.

Just a drawing I did inspired by a mixture of different songs by different artists, mostly the music video to IAMX's: Song of Imaginary Beings. A beautiful video which incorporates animation inspired by Lotte Reiniger's shadow plays (I think so).
The image was also inspired by Noisettes: Bridge To Canada...well one single line really,
'I'll Play the fool, but not your clown'.
One gets payed to be a fool and the other regrets looking like a clown!

Think of England

Hello lo,

You know when you get a song stuck in your head for a whole day, well mine lasts for days on end! At the moment it's Think of England by IAMX, it's that lilt in the singers voice when he says 'England' that seems to intrigue me for some reason. (The illustration is of Chris Corner.)

'I just can't think of England,

I can't see the picture,

I'm still running from the fire, the fire'.

Adrift: Illustration Friday


I thought I'd have a go, (no pressure = no hair being pulled out).

I think her neck is too long and she looks too masculine oh well, it was fun!

I had the video to Disturbia on my MP3 player and I remembered how it reminded me of the film Jacob's Ladder, which in turn reminded me of the dark style found in the Silent Hill series - so reminiscent of that film, so I ended up with this. After looking at it, the illustration then reminded me of that film that's coming out (or may be it's already out), about those teenaged demi-gods with divine abilities. One of the characters is played by the strangely perfect Uma Thurman who's costume looks similar to the one in this illustration!
This then reminded me of the question:
why do some people hate Kill Bill?

I hate the smell of cigarette smoke arg.

*closes bedroom door so that the smoke can't reach upstairs and into nostrils*

Ice cream


I can remember having ice cream in Rome with Samir and Celine!

We were nomming away as we sat on a bench outside the ice cream store watching all the noisy hubbub go by.
