Magnet Man

Yo yo yo.
Here's a picture of my Magnet Man re-hash so far. Stopped for a while now, though, too much work to do.
I found a couple of awesome things, there's this little manifesto/zine thing for designers, based in Cardiff, called Designer Violence, that's not an official site or anything, but its got a cool .gif showing all the pages of the current issue.
Then there's Shin Tanaka. This guy's a freaking legend. The things he can do with paper is inspiring, I mean, I managed to make a penguin and a t shirt out of paper in work, but seriously, check it out. I'm making a couple of the thingies on there, you can download the templates. I'll put pictures up soon.
Take it easy!

Old School

So, I've been playing Mega Man III for the NES, and damn, I forgot how much I love that game. Never completed a single level. But a while back I decided to draw Mega Man, then decided to do the Robot Masters in my own style and adapt them.

Birthday Cards

Hola! So, in the current state of having  no money, and people's birthdays around, I thought it'd be a nice idea to make cards for a change. It's been a pretty nice little thing to do, as well - they turned out nicely.
First one is for my sister; she's going to New York soon, so I put a nice Big Apple as well as a New York skyline (which I later went over in a silvery glitter pen), and the second is for my Grandad's 70th, and it's based on this thing he said once.

Who Watches The Watchmen?

Hello! Happy New Year! Was a pretty quiet one this year, wasn't it? Or so it seems from most people I've spoken to. Nobody can be bothered anymore!
I've been reading the Watchmen graphic novel, in preparation for the Watchmen movie Zack Snyder (300) is doing for this year, and I gotta say... It's freaking awesome. Definitely lives up to the hype that it's received over the years - I can't believe it's taken me until now to read it!!
Anyway, I've been really thinking about the character Rorschach, and how much I really like the design of him, so, naturally... I thought I'd try my hand at drawing him.
Hopefully I won't get fired for doing this at work :P  

Let me know what you think!
