my crumpets have collapsed




























Portrait of Briony (which I was able to use with a little editing), a couple of unfinished Toksvigs, an absolute nightmare of a Jon, and a couple of failed Anthonys all from this year's Great British Bake-Off.

the power of bake-off




























Decent portraits of Noel and Prue from The Great British Bake-Off, some aborted drawings of various contestants from the same show, and incomplete comic book checklist scattered across the right hand page, and a few more Warlock covers.

the great british warlock




























Some terrible drawings and some terrible drawings covered up by some wonderful 1970s Marvel comic covers, chiefly Warlock comics, or those featuring the celestial one. Many of these sell for large sums of money and as such may never be mine, but aged, musty original comics printed on cheap stock complete with adverts for Hostess Fruit Pies, Basketballs and BB Guns etc. (which, incidentally, were incredibly exotic to an impressionable young child from the UK), are so much more preferable to those collected in newly-printed glossy, shiny hardback books.

the universe?




























More red and black ink heads. Shortly before drawing this, I had just bought a new TWSBI Diamond 580 and filled it with red De Atramentis document ink to try something a little different.
