Wouldn't it be gobsmacking to have a strip rendered thus?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Yep, it's awesome. Has she ever drawn Sláine? Her scratchy McMahon style seems tailor-made for the big barbarian bastard.

Also that lovely Hershey pic reminds me of the Befana, the witch, with whom I've been internet-researching obsessively today for some reason, that does Santa Claus' job for kids in Italy.

A quick bit of info regarding the last few days of Advent Calendar shenanigans. The lovely Gail Nedry (my old school mates daughter) submitted a few pieces after some badgering from myself. I was amazed when Gail sat down and in the space of just a few hours cranked out the 3 pieces for this year’s calendar.
I mean, really, really fast.
I had a rough 6 page strip I had planned for the lovely boys at FQP/Zarjaz. But it didn’t really fit for them as it was more of a gimmick piece, inspired by Tharg’s thrill power Death Match from prog 2000, where various 2000ad characters were pitted in battle.
I had just finished Hershey/Anderson and Halo Jones for this year’s Advent calendar and was going to do a Rogue Trooper piece for my third slot.  But damn that Gail Nedry. She had me wondering if I could get my 6 page SHAKAR vs JOE PINEAPPLES done by 14th December.
So on Wednesday 11th I sat down to try and crank this out. It’s rough with many, many faults but all 6 pages were completed in 14 hours over 3 days. There are continuity problems. Joe and Shakara may have differences of costume from page to page which I would have amended given a more normal timescale.
Gail made it look easy. I found it really tough to work this quickly. These pages are somewhere between sketch and finished work. But I did manage to get it done in a really tight timescale. But…it’s just a bit of fun. So please excuse the lack of cohesive direction in the story. Jumps in narrative, poor lettering and the afore mentioned inconsistent art.
It’s all Gail’s fault. YO-HO-HO.
Have a Merry Christmas.

All of these art pieces have been a real treat.

Loved the Shakara vs. Pineapples: "In the pipe, five-by-five".
