Finally the lottery is over! 295 participants from all over the world, I'd love to give out 295 drawings but the cost of the stamps would ruin me for sure. 10 winners all drawn from my old trusty hat by my daughters:Everything is random I can assure you, but even that didn't hinder that one of the winners was a close relative to me! The winners name is under the actual price, If you are a winner and haven't got a mail please contact me so I can send the price to you.

Part of a commission work I'm doing at the moment, the line of characters are meant to walk over two spreads of the book (color to come). After finishing this I suddenly was struck with it's likeness to Sergio Aragones marginal drawings for Mad magazine (this was my favorite part of Mad when I was a child)
I've done five pages for an Italian comic project, the theme being on the movies. I made some rather arbitrary depictions on the history of Special effects, expect more to follow the next couple of days. And sometime next week I'll post my 1000th postI'm planning a raffle of some sort.
I tried to kick start the out door season while doing a short stint abroad but alas it was to cold and I had to abort the mission. It would be cool if someone could spot where in the world the sketch were made. I have a piece (can't remember exactly what I did though) in the Mail me Art exhibition at: Red Gate Gallery, 209a Coldharbour Lane, London. the show opens tomorrow 6 pm. I will not attend unfortunately.
