Photoshop montage...


A slight change of tack for the content of this site...The Guardian does a weekly satirical photoshop montage on the issues in football, and I have contributed two that were published on the site. The first was in response to the theme of Ryan Babel, the second re England's failed World Cup bid. It's probably obvious which one I did second, as it looks a hell of a lot better!

The Doomsday Mug...page 1

And now for something slightly different...this two page strip is the result of an exercise I did at a Cartoon Museum course...brief was to do a 2 page original strip based on the rather odd theme of 'mug of doom'. Completed in 2 weeks, so it's a bit rough and ready, but I'm pleased with the variation of shots and panels.

Trainer Trauma

This one originated from earlier this year when I had a voucher for Size? (yes, it is punctuated like that!).

Joey's Rock 'n' Roll Girlfriend

Pretty pleased with this one...Joey is interchangeable for Post-Uni Boy, but I had to name him as Post-Uni Boy's RnR GF would have been a bit of a mouthful for a title!

Not sure how many people will get this, may be a bit obscure...I have attached a link to Bosch (possibly my favourite artist) on Wiki. If you don't know his stuff, you should!

Another (third) Biased Auntie strip. This time Auntie's Bias rears its ugly head in the realm of sport.
