100. RELAXATION.....and that's it.

A rough approximation of me ('No Matt! Your chin isn't that double') relaxing with Dr Whatever-his-name-is-something-witty-no-doubt, who I think we might see more of (once I get his evil corporate branding sorted out).

So thanks. That was choice. More to come soon (including a more detailed post mortem....probably) because it was a HOOT.

99.9999999(ever so slightly NOT 100). RELAXTION (cheat)

I drew this one a couple of years ago as a badge for the Old Crustaceans (the Golden Oldies Arm of the Old Ignatians RUFC). Totally not eligible for the challenge, but you have to admit - he's pretty relaxed.

99. SOLITUDE - Number 2.

I think I like this one better. He seems more solitudey. 

99. SOLITUDE - Number 1.

To celebrate 100 Days of Drawing's Penultimate Day I've got not one BUT TWO to post.

And he did without even referencing the box. I'd be angry to (well I'd look around for the missing piece first....).

Little known historical fact - The Vikings were absolute demons for Occupational Health and Safety.

It was cold this morning. Not this cold mind you. But there was definately frost. You might want to click on this one to see it full size.

Bruce Willis he is not. And you can assume the smarmy bastard is about to hop in the chopper with all his smarmy bastard mates.

93. GIVE UP.

So 93 drawings in (7 drawings from finished) and the theme is 'Give Up'. If I didn't know better I'd assume my mind was being screwed with.

This. Would. Suck.


Demonstrating that my depictions of actual living beings are somewhat sketchy (Spock doesn't count, anyone can draw pointy ears and a bowl cut). Thank god they have those colour coded skivvies.

88. PAIN.

Given the subject of my other blog, it would be bizarre of me not to include at least part of a bicycle in one of these drawings.

Every time I see another one of these shows on television I can't for the life of me understand why the entire developing world doesn't get on a boat, sail (or motor) it's way over here and hand us our own arses...


I actually did this to one of the computers at work once. Added bonus - as the average age of the Psychiatric nurse in Australia is 50 (last time anyone counted) and as the computer literacy of the Psychiatric Nurse in Australia is about on par with this demographic (sorry, but it's true) it was still the wallpaper when I turned up to work the next day. Brilliant.

83. HEAL and 84. OUT COLD (double shot Thursday....kind of).

83. HEAL - Ah the romance of Victorian England. Mr Darcy never had to put up with this kind of shit.

84. OUT COLD - Don't complain - I was going to include the bucket full of limbs that was no doubt a fixture of the 'Worlds Best Practice' Victorian trauma centre. It's also good to see that testing out the pain relief was an accepted perk then as it is now........(kidding).

And just quietly. Really happy with both of these. Grappling figures has always been a weak point for me.

So many issues. Where does he get his air? Where does he get his water? Where does he dump his rubbish? For that matter, where does he dump?

Not worried about any of that. What do you expect for a drawing a day?

I'm doing this with a light and a magnifying glass with a special 'daylight' globe. Those Monk fellas got a grotty candle. No wonder they wrote so big.

It went like this - You go up to your mate and place your hand on top of your own head and kind of...move it around up there like a spider.

Ask your mate - 'Hey (insert mate) what's this?'.

Answer - 'A Brain Sucker'.

Then you put your hand on top of your mate's head upside down and totally still - 'And what's this?'.

Answer - 'A Brain Sucker.....STARVING!'

Hilarity (and arm punching) ensues.

78. DRINK.

This was a really small drawing. Like smaller than this is on your screen (unless you're looking at it on a mobile...) The joys of my newly reanimated .25 Rotring. I reckon I could draw an atom with that baby. Quite like it really ('specially the tongue).

That's a kebab in the ground behind him.

77. TEST.

Test - YOUR SANITY!......I quite like the scope of Lovecraftian Horror but was always a bit skeptical of the whole driven mad by the mere sight of ....whatever it was the protagonist caught sight of. Just shut the door idiot.

Particularly like the right shoe. Hate drawing f**king shoes.

Again on the smooth paper.....christ this ink takes a long time to dry. He was originally standing out in the open but his stance was leaning waaaaaaay too backwards. So he got a tree to lean against (it's always a good idea to get some cover when your swords busted anyway...)

Tuesday, 2 July 2013


New paper for this one. On the positive side -it's waaaaaay better in terms of line definition (no bleed at all). On the slightly annoying side - it takes forever for the ink to dry so smudges have become an issue.

I'll see how I go.

This one just kind of....came out like this. I was aiming for more realistic than usual. He's an angry man. I think the approved term is alcohol fueled?

73. I CAN'T

If you have no idea what this is a picture of it's possibly pointless trying to explain. Suffice to say I suspect the words that make up today's theme are heard often on the battleground known as Mt Midoriyama.........incorrectly known because as it turns out when the Japanese stick 'yama' on the end of a word it means 'mountain'. So when the clueless western media company translate it to Mount Midoriyama they are effectively saying Mount Mount Midori. Idiots.

Oh. Ninja Warrior is what I am talking about. And this is the dreaded 'Warped Wall' obstacle from Stage one.

Apologies to the foreign readers, or the local readers who are atrociously educated politics wise OR to everyone if this depiction of our new (again) Primeminister is not sufficiently recognisable.

Also - when I think of Kevin as a student at Hogwarts, the House that immediately springs to mind is Hufflepuff. Not sure why.


Dirty rat and cliche cheese. Mmmmm cheese.

70. 67%

The good Doctor is becoming my go to man for the awkward ones. Also - SECRET VOLCANO BASE. 


Zombie Apocalypse amateurs.....

68. HERO

I bet the guy here thought he was going have a nice quiet day...Not a bit of it.

'Could Minion Class 2 Jones please report to Mr Octopus in HR for his performance appraisal.....'


2002. The Sutherland Cup Grand Final against Colleagues (Tristans and Jeremy's the lot of them) at Harold Park. Had not lost a game all year. We lost 3 - 0 to a penalty kick that bounced off the upright AND the crossbar before going over......I am aware that this is what you might refer to as 'First World Horror'.

Proper Dragons are not ridden. They are not wise and homely. They are not voiced by Sean Connery. They are evil, capricious killing machines that will consume you and your entire village then make shiny baubles from your heat cured bones....

Nothing shits me more than stories where they're always solving every single little problem with magic (are you listening Rupert Bear?). I always liked Terry Pratchett's conception of Magic as a quite dangerous, almost radioactive tool that tended to remove (or add) as many limbs as it solved problems.


No tricks. No blood or last minute smarty arsey post-modern 'the fairies are actually evil' rubbish (plus Mr Pratchett already done that quite nicely). Just good old fashioned family values.

Two fairies. Married to each other. With a happy child. Nothing controversial there.

I know it's 'No Way Out' but I can't help thinking he's got a horse at the bottom of that cliff that he's totally going to jump onto and not rupture both his testicles AT ALL.....unless he's the bad guy of course in which case that dude is dead meat.

...also. I need to work on my cowboy hats....

If I was also drawing sound effects it would be something along the lines of - 'KLONGGGG'.

First she's going to bust off of this piss weak stake. Then she's going to beat that giant spider to death with that rock. And THEN she's going back to that bunch of spineless old butt wipes on the Town Council that decided she should be the sacrifice instead of some over the hill goat like old cranky Mrs Maggoty and feed them their own scum sucking large intestines.....

Sacrifice indeed....

'Ooh. There he is.' Colour version added on 28/06 for more 'pop' (thanks for the suggestion Lee).
'Airbags activated! Turn signals operational!'

Not going to lie - I got fairly strapped for time on this one thanks to 6 hours spent on the pressing business of the time sucking, relentlessly hungry, demonic organism that is the Laguna Public School P&C. Still, I'm fairly happy with the leafy bits.
