Monkey Changes Everything

Recently updated The Psychedelic Journal blog - the issue is completely finished and things are rattling along nicely. Take a peek at our more detailed comings and goings here:
The fifth issue of the Bear Pit Zine - a Bristol anthology - is nearly upon us, and Geoffery Crescent and I did a one-pager for it. More importantly, it's rammed full of amazing comics by glorious Bristolians. I'll have it on my tables at all cons this year, Cardiff and so on. Give us a shout if you fancy getting your hands on one. More details at their tumblr - !
The 2000ad forum art competition went mental in January - and the winner, Jon Taylor, is representative of how ridiculously brilliant it's become - all that detail! Second place was Chris Askham, whose eerie halftones chill the bones - !
In third was the mysterious newcomer STEVONATRON whose breathtaking digital painting of Hammerstein wowed the lot of us -
Walking away with the smashing "most honourable mentions" nod is Matt Herbert's fantastic zombie Dredd sculpture. The chap swung himself Tharg's Choice for another awesome Dredd sculpt back in October. 
Blimey. Finally the Mighty Tharg's Choice went to small press legend Leigh Shepherd - and his atmospheric interpretation of The Moses Incident.
That's not the end of the zombie fun though - not by a long shot - all the entries were amazing, and a gander at the voting thread makes it fairly obvious that this has been the greatest bunch in years. It's going to be hard to top, that's for damned sure. But we'll give it a go - ! February's has already begun HERE
Finally - this brief update ends with the return of Crabcake. Finally after three years I'm getting round to the origin of the mysterious (and dead, or maybe not dead) Gastleas. Oho! See the whole thing on Facebook here - and lest ye forget I did a big blog about WHAT CRABCAKE IS last year:
