New Year's Revulsions

What about that 2009, eh? What about that?! Yeah, me neither. Actually, my 2009 has been all right, so I'm counting my blessings, really. I know it's been rough for a lot of people.

New Year's Resolutions:
(1) To try and get a collection of my old mini-comics and scattered one-off short stories together, probably as a print-on-demand affair for selling at conventions and through the ol' website.
(2) To produce a comic through entirely digital means that looks as much like my hand-drawn comics as possible, just to prove to myself it can be done. So far my attempts at digital artwork have been very digital-looking, and that's not what I want. So yeah, learn some skills.
(3) To get more sleep. Of the three, that's the least likely to happen.

Here's a picture I did as a commission - Waiting for Godot as performed by Laurel and Hardy, which I'd love to do one day - a straight adaptation, with the entire original text unaltered, just with Stan and Ollie as Vladimir and Estragon. It's a book waiting to happen.


  1. Very good likenesses, however I think Laurel should be a little taller and thinner. Although Ollie was taller, Stan always came off as about the same height. It is more the illusion of than the reality. But again, well done.

  2. It's a book that ought to be (didn't we talk about it briefly in the comments to a post years ago?) It's the kind of project Arts Council grants ought to be available for, I think. Hope you find a way of making it happen someday, anyway.

  3. Honest to goodness, that would be the BEST THING EVER.

    The Laurel & Hardy thing, I mean. From a selfish point of view, I like that you work traditionally, because it makes for some pretty lovely bits of original art.

  4. i luv'd laurel n hardey since my childhood...just seeing this pic i remembered my childhood
    thnx roger :-)
