Latest Remake/Remodel Challenge over at Warren Ellis' boards.

Captain America

Saturday, September 4, 2010

Revenge of the Sith is on TV for like the billionth time and while watching that scene where Obi Wan and Anakin crash land the giant ship on Coruscant something occurred to me: the ship breaks in half on entry over a planet that is essentially one giant super-city. So while our gleeful Jedi wrench the front half to a grinding halt on a runway, the back half, a massive chunk of metal the size of the Titanic, falls to the surface of a heavily populated area and somehow doesn't create a mile wide crater, wiping out thousands of people, disrupting the economy and the very government that oversees hundreds of planets?

Clearly it doesn't because the politicians are lauding the cocky Jedi, going about their usual business and attending wacky Cirque Du Space Operas.

Warren Ellis posted his geekiest Remake/Remodel Challenge ever: The Thirteenth Doctor. You can see a larger version here.

I had this image of coloured tile like you see in tube stations or old institutional buildings in the UK so I went for that with the walls. And how could I not include Sally Sparrow?

Had lots of fun drawing this, and now I need to get back to work.

Back from San Diego, we just finished a week of teaching kids how to make comics at VPL's summer book camp, attended the Anime Evolution show at UBC over the weekend and now finally have some time to think and work... except there's this ridiculous heat wave going on that's making it damn near impossible to do anything in the office (the building's ancient electrical system can't handle air conditioners apparently). This is where I have to send thanks to Mayor Robertson and the City of Vancouver for demolishing our neighbourhood pool. It's not like such a thing would have been at all popular what with climate change making each new bout of summer even hotter than the last.

My brain isn't just cooking from the heat but also with plans and schemes and as soon as it cools down a bit I'll be back at the tablet getting those ideas out. Can't wait.

Also, ignore the Japanese spambot in the comments section. I'm trying to figure out how to block him without having to put up annoying security walls.

We're in San Diego! So, the pub quiz was a bit of a bust but we'll try again soon. Currently fighting a bug. I'll be staying in a bit today to try and burn it off. I'll also be finishing commissions. I'll be at the Elephantmen booth today at around 5pm and if your piece isn't done by then I promise it will be over the next couple of days. Bear with me on this. I feel pretty iggy and am doing my best.

My first try with the ipad Sketchbook Pro app last week wasn't very good, so this morning I decided to try again, this time with photo reference. Took about 5 hours. I like it.

And now to bed. More work on commissions and sketch requests tomorrow.

Good news everyone! San Diego Comic Con is coming up and leading up to the big weekend I'll be taking commissions. I'm limiting it to ten right now just to be sure everything will be ready for the show. It's a hundred for an inked piece, and if you're looking for a quick free sketch hopefully I'll be able to do some at a booth to be announced (still working on details). If you're interested, toss me an e-mail at

Back to work.

Hey, looks like things are up and running here again. Had a lovely year and some months off. Worked on interesting projects and now getting ready for more. If you're looking for the FAQ and links pages, fear not, they'll be back up shortly. Still fiddling.
