Well then - it's been a very hyper-active fortnight. Dear Geoffery has returned from a sojurn to the (sort of) frozen North and the Polygon is a great deal warmer for it. There was a little festival at which I did some compering (I just shouted essentially but was apparently appreciated for not trying to be funny because I'm about as witty as a horse).

Also here's a proper look at the MAMMOTH colouring job that's eaten up all of my webcomic time like a big well-written bit of Western character drama. "The Last Ride of Henry Holden" is written by Alex De Gruchy, pencilled by Giorgio Ianotti, inked by Mike Bunt and it'll be published by Steve Tanner's Time Bomb Comics http://timebombcomics.blogspot.co.uk/

TAB's "Idiot" theme and it's the first picture I've done in aaages that met absolutely NO reaction whatsoever.... I suppose because (apart from the obvious) it's so specific. It's Neil Innes, and it's a screen capture from a video of his "How Sweet To Be An Idiot" - then I put an older version of him in a mirror mounted to a piano. Not quite sure why. And why the older mirrored version is in colour whilst his younger self isn't. I THINK (and stop me if I'm looking too much into it) but he'd said about the album something along the lines of:
"United Artists had been very kind to me ... In my own way, I wanted to repay them - by making a bunch of silly singles at a time when the music industry still seemed to have a sense of humour. Wrong again"
It's sort of like, him looking back on his own silly self and sadly, sweetly musing on why it hadn't worked out. Whilst maintaining his own present silliness - and I can't express how influential that kind of attitude is. Nobody really liked this picture, but it is a bit silly - and that alone made it worth doing. Onwards!
"Doctor WTF?! defies easy expectations – this most assuredly isn’t humdrum fannish pandering – and proves itself to be a clever little collection of Who-related shorts, both playful and inventive in their delivery."
Is a bloody lovely thing to hear. Our last ever show with the TARDIS/Jellybean sales technique and the final thirty-or-so copies will be on sale at Thought Bubble in Leeds this November. We'll also have the Professor Elemental comic, a very special Jazz & O comic and a fair old bit of promo material for the first issue of The Psychedelic Journal of Time Travel (submissions for the second issue are well-and-truly open - view the Facebook page for details)
