Help! / Re: Fear the Badge - Fanzine
« on: 14 July, 2020, 05:42:24 PM »
All I remember is being sent a drawing of the badge with a gap where the name goes. I then printed out different letters , and then slotted them in accordingly. Very archaic times at work back then. Nowadays draw it in the computer , and print it out onto acetate. Boom! Artwork done  :lol:

If this is the fanzine created by Paul Dick , I remember this well. I print T-shirts for a living , and back in the mid nineties Paul got in touch asking for some shirts with the badge printed on. He wanted Ezquerra inserted in the name slot , and said he was giving it to Carlos (!). Tbh , I was a bit sceptical but did some anyway.
One morning , I think on the Big Breakfast , Carlos was promoting something , and lo and behold: he was wearing the very same shirt I’d made  :lol:
I did some (basic) art for the zine and other bits. He did promise to articulate a Halcyon Dredd statue for me that I gave him as recompense. Didn’t see it ever again.

For anyone stuck indoors , and likes the radio , I’ve just come across this link to a dead-easy to use Worldwide station finder. I’m listening to an Oz 80’s station , and it’s like I’m playing Vice City again!

My main concern is juggling what few hours I can parse from work (40-50 hour week reduced to as little as 12) and keeping home, desperately trying not to pass anything onto my elderly grandparents.

It's quiet frightening times right now lads, not going to lie at all.

Never thought I’d ever be telling someone I’m frightened, but when half the work staff get put on immediate 3 day week for THREE months , and knowing I’ll be next within...dunno , then I , too , am genuinely emotional and a wreck right now. Started off as a not too bad day , considering. Then BAM , people are worrying about just trying to get through the next week , let alone 3 months. Minimum.
I always thought I was unempathic , that I didn’t really care about people’s lives , as they didn’t affect me. Turns out I was very , very wrong.

People are really, really, losing their fucking minds.

Things we aren't going to run out of: milk, eggs, soap, toilet roll and baked beans.

Things we are going to run out of very soon: potatoes and tomatoes, which are largely imported at this time of year. Thanks to Just In Time supply chains, the stuff that would have been in the shops next week probably hasn't even been picked yet… and the places where they grow are all under lockdown.

As a bonus: remember all that flooding? The flooding that stopped UK farmers planting a wide variety of crops earlier this year…?

See , I’m thinking what people should start doing is , if they have gardens that is , to assign a patch of their back gardens to crop growing , and get those potatoes in now. Other basics like lettuce , tomatoes , peas. Get them planted now , and with any ‘luck’ , they’ll be coming into their own when there could be shortages. Swap excess crops with neighbours. Your spare potatoes for their spare cabbage. Prepare now , it wouldn’t hurt either way. You’ll have free food regardless if the shops have enough veg for everyone. It’s a war with the virus , so start having that blitz spirit mindset. I don’t have a garden or any access to one , but god do I wish I did. I tell fellow workies to start this up in possible readiness , and I just get the usual meh 😕

Quest Rave Flyers from the 90’s : Like Anthrax , there was usage of Dredd’s badge in a lot of their promos.

Sizes are in the description on each page , Monkeh - maybe I should have written them in the main header?

While I applaud Oz’s commitment , it does sound harsh. Can someone not buy it , then ship it to you?
I suppose it’d have to be declared at customs though...

Not literally unfortunately, but the commission she did of Durham Red for me some years ago.
A bargain if it sells for the asking price , as the commission was almost 4 times that.
Also , there are two more by Kat Cardy and Patrick Goddard via the other items.
