To those who recognised where that quote was from kudos to you. Ding ding ding, we have a weiner Monty Python ftw! But seriously there’s like a few thoughts of blogs that are trapped in my head write now so I’m just gonna shove it all into one post.
So I drew another thing, this one took days, hours of giant book flattening and using a shitty glue stick to stick pages together. It was lame, the black is paint, it’s totally shit to use paint on paper. It’s also totally shit to use water on paper so the Derwents are like a big fuck you. Hehe here’s a perfect blending formula but your paper is going to mold itself into stupid shapes that’ll look poop.
Here’s a before:
The main is obviously the finished shot. I love the Gorillaz not just because they make cool as shit music but because the person that did their characters was Jamie Hewlett. If you don’t recognise the name he’s the artist of Tank Girl, my favourite graphic novel/comic book of all time. I could go on and on about how amazing Tank Girl is but that in itself deserves it’s own post.
But the Gorillaz makes a great segueway into music. I don’t really share music, I didn’t do it on Facebook and I didn’t really do it on any other social platform. But I’ve noticed there’s a few on here that are into punk and I must admit, our country have some cool bands. The two bands I’m going to share are actually from my home state which makes it even more cool!
City of Angels – The Distillers (this songs about Melbourne!)
Greg! The Stop Sign – TISM this is serious mum (this band is an acquired taste, people either love or hate this band)
