Murmurs



(Click to make big!!!)


So I'm doing a 5 page strip for this new comic anthology called Bottle Rocket that's coming out in Summer. I'm a bit late on it, I've still got 2 pages to draw and it should of been in tonight. Oh well, I could go and finish it off or I could sit here and update this blog, which is far more rewarding let me tell you! I've decided to call the strip Murmurs which is a plural of an R.E.M album. I'm thinking of keeping it going, make it sort of a irregular thing that I produce whenever I feel like it.
I'll probably more than likely put this in the new issue of Pandemonium which is coming soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elephant Girl


Hello! hope everyones eyes are ok?!?!?! :) here is one of my most recent efforts.. still need to work on the colouring a little (Photoshop colouring ametuer here). I'm going to enter this illustration for a t-shirt competition at www.subedition.co.uk the idea is based on mutants, which is this months set theme. I just found out that ur limited to using 3 colours, which has fucked me right up. so i'm going to have to edit mine some how... I'll come up with something, don't you worry. Anyway you can enter for free and there's a chance that you could earn some soft cash! :) I was informed by an American Mutant (no lie) that It's National Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month http://www.ctf.org so feel free to donate. take care. James.

"Who or what is a cowface?", a poster advertising an extremely popular exhibit at Chicago's Barnum Museum. The act consisted of the half-man-half-cow appearing from behind a plush velvet curtain. Grown men were said to have fainted at the sight of it. The true identity of the creature remains shrouded in rumour and mystery, but it was medically examined by an independant group of distinguished physicians who presented Barnum with a certificate of authenticity. As to whether he had working teats is another matter of conjecture...The rest of the text reads; 'It was captured in a savge part of Kent, is probably around 30 yrs old, 5ft high, docile, randy and PLAYFUL AS A KITTEN! To be seen daily at Barnum Museum.' (L.Sloane, Welwyn Hatfield Times)


Well, here we are...just to keep Mr Ellerby's technology embracing monkeys company. Isn't it amazing what passed for entertainment in those days...still, saying that, I'd pay good money to see a levitating pig! Wacka-Wacka!
