Many moons ago, when I was still in short trousers and Dangermouse was still on the TV, my Amiga 600 gave up the ghost an amazing TWO DAYS out of warranty (how did it know?! How did it know?!). In retrospect, I think only the disc drive had failed. But being too young to own a set of screwdrivers, or have the ¬£¬£¬£¬£HUGE amount of cash that a floppy drive cost in those days, I had to admit defeat. And probably cry, or something… in a manly way. One of my ‚Äúfriends‚Äù suggested that dropping it down the stairs might fix the problem. It didn‚Äôt.
Well, after Mike’s mass gallery postage earlier in the week, you could be forgiven for thinking that we’re all about art. But we’re not. Over the years I’ve accrued many, many half written scripts on varying versions of Word. So now I’m going to post the best and most complete ones. This is the inspiration behind the gallery.
A long time ago on a PC much much slower than this…
Shock, Horror! After a whopping 7 years, I finally felt like drawing again at the end of last month. I’ve even posted what I drew in our gallery and below:
Now, I thought that by now I’d be rubbish – but the piece I produced was a really good effort. Much like this website that Mike’s created for us 😀 . Thanks buddy, and hats off!
The only downside is that I have to think of something to write in this blog every week now. But luckily for me my life is so interesting. No paint drying round here… *ahem*
Anyway, what follows is a link to something that I wrote in the middle of last year. It’s the first draft of a “plan of all issues” that I like to do before writing something. The title of the piece is “Humanity: I think, therefore I am” and it’s a Japanese-style cyborg/android type thing. The PDF that follows is the “plan” (sort of first draft) of issue one (so don’t be too harsh 😉 ). Mike will be drawing this when I eventually get round to finishing it. I’m sure he’ll post some character sketches in the gallery soon (no elbow in your ribs at all mate – honest).
Also, I’ll be posting a couple of videos that I shot way back when and edited to music on our youtube account as soon as mike gives me the details. I’ll post links to those as soon as it’s done.
That’s all for now. But I’ll be back soon with some reviews on the Printed Polo’s shirts and more.
