The Lion’s Den

Goldbeard does not look happy at being erased…

The year is 1981. The place is the newly opened Lion’s Den club in Miami’s South Beach. Our time-travelling warrior poet Azrael Goldbeard is taking some well earned time off in the early 80’s as he fancied a bit of some sun and some disco dancing. Although lesser known than it’s New York counterpart, Studio 54, the Lion’s Den is very much along the same lines. Debauchery is the name of the game and Goldbeard is very much enjoying his time here. He’s currently thinking about nipping back to 77 and see what all the fuss was about. It’ll be a while until he’s back in grim and grimy 2019…

Cheers

When Superheroes Kiss

When superheroes kiss strange things can happen. Never mind when they really go for it. Here we have Spanish superhero Limon Cojones getting it on with Miami based super strong wrestler Blue Thunder. What’s going to happen next is anyone’s guess. I’ve seen this kind of thing before but the only consistent thing is that it’s going to be unpredictable. Perhaps it will start raining lemonade and kittens. It’s happened before. Which kind of means it’s unlikely to happen again. 

This is the first of some sketches for bigger pieces that all revolve around the strange but surprisingly mundane love lives of superheroes. Why? Well, I’ve got to fill my time somehow and this seemed like a good idea at the time. 

As an aside, I’ve got no idea what the Japanese text says as I translated it ages ago and have forgotten. I’m going to go with something like ‘superhero kiss kiss’ but I wouldn’t be suprised if it said something else entirely. So, if you are proficient in Japanese maybe you could help me out…

Love

B.I.T.C.H

It’s funny what you find when you dig around in the corners of the overcrowded shedio. This morning I found this slate whilst looking for something else entirely and I’m pretty sure hasn’t seen the light of day since it was created six or seven years ago. 

I’ve got literally no idea what I was thinking when I came up with this bad bitch but I obviously thought better than posting it. Now, with a bit of time between creation and reflection, I can still only wonder what my intentions were. Perhaps she was meant to be the result of some warped government experiments. Sadly, it looks like we’ll never know now. Just make up your own reason for the picture and we’ll leave it at that…

The strangest case of Triangulosis

Now I’m no doctor but Olive here told me she had a bad case of Triangulosis. Apart from Olive mentioning it I‘ve never heard of it and a quick internet search turned up no results. As I’ve said I’m no medical professional of any stripe but I could tell just by looking at her that something was a little off but I just couldn’t put my finger on it…

That was until I decided to draw her and to my surprise, after I had finished I looked at it to see a mess of triangles with some eyes staring back at me. After looking at the drawing again I glanced up to Olive again and, just for a second, her face was a senseless mass of triangles.

I looked from picture to face again and there were just too many triangles for my limited mammalian brain to handle and apparently became disoriented and fell into a swoon. Be very wary of Olive and her Triangulosis! 

Cheers

The Mousetrap

Recently my washing machine broke down so I had to use the local laundrette to wash my clothes. Never having used one before I wasn’t really sure what to expect but I’m certainly sure that what I did witness was not what you would call the norm. 

When I walked in a couldn’t see a soul until I walked around the first bank of machines, to my surprise I caught this lady sitting on a washing machine writhing about, legs akimbo, whimpering to herself. My first thought was this was some reenactment of the famous scene from ‘When Harry met Sally’ but as I looked closer I could see the tail of some small rodent sticking out the bottom of her trouser leg. To say I was shocked would be an understatement, I dropped my washing and ran as fast as my legs could take me from the place and left her to deal with the situation herself. Now I know it’s not the most chivalrous response one could have but I just felt the fact that I was wearing shorts was enough of a reason to high tail it out of there in case it came at me with its pointed snout, small rounded ears and pink scaly tail. I certainly wasn’t going to be caught in this little fellas well thought out trap…

The Rules

Toby was an avid internet troll who thought that the interweb was his playground, that was until the day he found out the internet had rules. Who would have thought it? Certainly not, Toby, that’s for sure as he is now hiding from the world due to the negative backlash he received for a number of his online transgressions.

What rule did he break I hear you ask? Sadly he broke more than just one and managed to get most of the interweb to hate him. Even countries like North Korea, Belarus, Iran, Syria and Turkmenistan have joined in teaching toby a thing or two about internet etiquette and they have little or no public internet to speak of.

He’s thinking of having the ones he broke most, tattooed down the sides of both his arms and legs so as to not forget them. It’s either that or not go on the internet anymore and that just doesn’t seem realistic as he is the CEO of a major tech company.

That said he is now looking in to selling all his stock of said tech firm and buying up land to start a marijuana farm in Patagonia due to his Welsh heritage. The internet really gave him both barrels and now he just wants a simple life
