Hallowe'en is a strange festival. I like the spookiness of it and what it stands for in the ancient ways - but somehow together it all seems wrong and really tacky.
Never mind - I drew a few monsters and that to celebrate and I'll be dressing up tomorrow to scare children.

Corbett & Jones Show

If you're around Old Street this time next week, pop in to The Foundry and say hello as Jones and I will be swilling brandy in large goblets as we ponce about our pictures.
This show of a collection of painted off cuts and mis-shapes hidden away in a corner, blocking the fire exit will be on from the 3rd-10th of November and we'll be there on Thursday night, celebrating Bonfire night in the warmth so please come and say hello.
See you there.

Squeeball Plushes

The Squeeball promotion seems to be in full swing. This is how the reviewers are being bribed in America. This promo seems like a good idea, but I would have liked to have had a tighter reign on the quality control over these chaps... and don't get me started on the website.

A claim on a previous post that the game would be released simultaneously here and in the US, turns out not to be the case. We'll see it in Europe for Christmas.

Pride Pals

The last time I did work for a gay audience I got slated for being too gay. The work I originally designed for 'The Big Gay Out' festival in Finsbury Park featuring poodles and sexy animals had to be replaced by muscly men with their tops off. ''Too gay." Honestly. Well I hope these are better received.

Squeeballs DS

Squeeballs Party is out tomorrow and it comes with a snazzy stylus - if you buy it in the US at least. I'm afraid I don't know if that will happen in Blighty but we can live in hope. I'm looking forward to playing this, it's looks pretty good.
