'Whatever Happened to the Strontium Dog?'

The beauty of this is that we've already had it, and it was by John and Carlos.
It was fairly recent too, but I can't remember if it was in a prog or a special...

Watched Nuts In May for about the millionth time - so much to love about these character observations.

I do wonder how it would be recieved these days though. Would its depiction of Keith and Candice-Marie's values be deemed offensive?

So i finally gave in and tried an Assassin's Creed game - Odyssey.

About 8 hours in and it's blimming great. Plays very much like The Witcher 3, and the world map is huge.

Can see myself sinking alot of time into this one.

Save yourself Woolly while you still can. This is the first game in a long while that I've become totally addicted to......sleep deprivation is really kicking in now.

Nope, it's already too late.
I'm utterly gripped - are any of the other AC games this good? Might give them a try also off the back of this one...

Yeah, I read it as Dredd clenching his fist in anger.
I'd be surprised if someone who has secretly been living in Justice Dept HQ's walls for 40-odd years would be caught out by a digital camera in a glove.

Beautiful work.

My facebook feeds nothing but Carlos right now. Such an incredible influence for so many people.
I lost my Dad to lung cancer a few years ago, and I'm probably projecting some of that loss here, but still.
I just can't quite take this in yet.

My heart goes out to all that loved him.

I'm just stunned by this news, even after all the health scares.
I know I never met the man, or even had an online conversation with him, but when I see Strontium Dog drawn by a different artist tears are gonna flow.

Rest In Peace Carlos. You helped make all our lives just that little bit better xx

Aw no. Speechless. My heart goes out to his family and friends. The end of an artistic era, a legend.

Terrible news. Wishing Glenn a speedy recovery.

Creative Common / Re: Why Don't I Enjoy Art Any More?

It's no secret that I've been feeling this way for a few years now. I used to be all over the Art comps' a few years ago, then just ran out of steam I guess. I've never held any serious art ambitions, certainly never considered myself to be good enough to make any money from it either, but used to enjoy doing stuff for fun.
Guess I got tired of the idea of working for fun? I dunno..
I sometimes feel a bit of the old spark, but it never lasts long enough to get a drawing out.

Sorry mate, I don't think I have any advice for you!  :(

But I will say this: Just because you have a talent (and boy do you have talent!), doesn't mean you have to use it. It's your talent, it isn't going anywhere, there's nothing wrong with ignoring it for a while.
Give yourself a month off*. Do other things, get a bit of time back.
Then have a crack at a picture and see how you feel.

*But don't do what I did and give yourself 2+ years off - that's not a good plan!

His ongoing dismissal of that sort-of-but-not Halo pic irks too. Just own the fuck up. Stop blaming other people.

But wasn't he commissioned to draw the piece? *
Just like Carlos was when he recently drew topless Durham Red?
Don't see anyone throwing shade at Carlos...

*(Apologies if I'm wrong here!)
