Haunting oneself

Have you ever looked in the mirror and been scared stiff with what is staring back at you? Marjorie has and she’s still reeling from it. 

She thought she had the look of a powerful business woman from the 80’s, instead she looks like the reanimated corpse of a long dead Margaret Thatcher – whom I suppose was a woman of power in the 80’s – but it was disconcerting all the same. 

The weird thing was after stepping away from the mirror Marjore could still feel the ex-Prime Minister’s presence and the feeling never left. Majorie has learnt to embrace the situation and now has a private investigations firm called ‘Paranormal PM PI’. She hasn’t had many jobs yet but she’s sure Maggie’s malign presence will surely come in handy soon. It’s early doors for these two. Watch this space…

It is A5 in size and made using pencil, fine line pen and triblend markers

Podge & Mcloughlin

Podge & Mcloughlin is my favourite skiing-based 80’s style detective show that never was.  The premise would be simple. Every week Podge & Mcloughlin would somehow get themselves embroiled in some kind of complicated Alpine murder investigation and through a mix of keen detective work and comedic blind luck they’d come through in the last few minutes of the show and solve the seemingly impossible case – much to the chagrin of the lackadaisical local cops. Cue theme music and end credits.

It’s not that often that we get prints done from our digital files but this one with it’s mix of styles demanded the colours pop and the skin tones be lifelike so a professional printer seemed like the best way to go. Anyway, this bad lad is printed up at A3 and will look grand once framed. I just hope the commissionees like my treatment of their holiday picture as much as i do…

Cheers
