Neil Googe or Jim Baikie - Artists Ryder Cup Current vs Classic - Tie 3

(1/6) > >>

Colin YNWA:
Two lesser lights one could argue… could, you’d be wrong but you could...one of these went out in the first rounds and another didn’t even qualify - they are one of my indulgences or wildcards you could say. Mind Neil Googe did go out to the eventual winner so who knows? Anyway they will make for a great round of contrasting styles I’d suggest.

I love the work of Jim Baikie and I was quietly mortified when he didn’t qualify for the tourney proper back in November (was it?). His work on Skizz and New Statesmen for sister comic and therefore qualifying for consideration Crisis is some of my favourite ever in the house of Tharg. Let’s see if he justifies my love!

I’ve started to re-read Survival Geeks recently and doing that has made me appreciate just how under appreciated Neil Googe was in my mind. His work on that series is simply astonishingly good. I mean really. He is one of those modern artists that when I look at his work I really wonder if he’d been around in the early days just how lauded he’d be? Hope he gets a new series from Tharg soon.

Time for you to decide your favourite as the droids square up to the tee…

Neil Googe - more info


Jim Baikie - more info

Remember for this tourney you have 5 votes to distribute as you please between these two artists, whole numbers only. So you can vote 5 - 0; 4 - 1; or 3 - 2; either way depending on how much more you like one artist's work over the other.

If you can’t be doing with that just name your favourite - remember bold tags, or other ways of highlighting always appreciated - and I’ll give them 3 votes and nowt to the other droid.

Three day votes, so this one ends bright and breezy Saturday 8th May

Remember we only consider work for Tharg in these Tourneys

What the heck is all this about - well we have a thread for that

How does this new voting work? Look here and why again?

I don’t understand how this works, what are the rules of the Ryder Cup - yep got ya covered there too

Anything else just ask and I’ll make something up. Most importantly have fun!

Jim 5, sorry Neil but we should show more love towards one of the best artists off our time

4-1 Balkie - Googe is a terrific artist and survival geeks was made by his touch but balkie is an absolute powerhouse especially if we’re including New Statesmen.

The Mind of Wolfie Smith:
