A hideous wax baby face I made for one of my illustrations. The book describes an enormous wall monster morphing and stretching out of the plaster until it looks like plastic. I though wax was a nice transient material that resembled plastic but would behave in a way suitable for my needs. I have a couple of plaster casts of some freaky doll heads lying around so I made a quick shoddy mould with one. It didn't matter if the head was a bit wonky or lumpy. Monsters aren't perfect, it makes them boring otherwise.

Signal To Noise

One of the main things I have been looking at for inspiration/reference is the graphic novel "Signal To Noise" By Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean. In particular I was interested in the pages that featured one single drawing that was then split up into panels to give the impression of progression, almost like a still version of a camera panning in a piece of film.

The wine bottle here, is the kind of thing I was focusing on. But the whole book is wonderful and endlessly inspiring

In less than a month I will be meeting this man <3

I will sit through a screening of his latest film and a presentation of his big slide show.

I just...I'm going to die of happiness. I will wither and die at his feet and it will be an embarrassing affair. But I will meet him. He will sign my copy of Oak Mot, and I will try to my best to look dignified and refined.

It's going to be so embarrassing u_u

I like how he's all like: "COME AT ME, BRO!"

looking at pictures of Bears as reference for Shardik, the enormous robotic bear creative by North Central Positronics. Obviously named after the bear from the book of the same title by Richard Adams.

Oh man, It's Charlie the ChooChoo!

Or Blaine the monorail. whatever.

Stephen King says he wants to do the voice of Blaine when a film of the wastelands finally gets made.

Really Stephen? Really?

Your voice is far too reedy.
