Asteroid Sound

I have an urge to draw guitars recently. And also to draw using just a pen. There's something ironically liberating about the fact that every line you draw is final.  
Here's some nonsense.

Starting to think about making some t-shirt designs...

Also, I have a friend who is going to invent the genre of "Space Rock".
This is my opinion on the matter.

Real freaks, ALIVE

Oh man, I just can't hide this anymore but I goddamn love typography. In the olden days (the good old days) I would've been summarily tried and hanged but now it's accepted.
There was/is an exhibition at the British Library about the evolution of the English language (go, goddamn you), and it was reet interesting. I copied a couple of awesome fonts/letters that you can see in the second image from the King James Bible and an old poster for the circus, and now I can't stop thinking about the latter.
I think I shall have to do a project about the circus.
Just want to draw freaks really. There is something interesting about people who celebrate and revel in differences.

Based on a true story

I couldn't sleep, so this happened.

Widget the Space Midget
flies her rocket through the sky,
and she lands right in your pocket cause she's just three inches high.

"Now understand I claim this land
for Mars!" she then declares,
and when she's climbed your head she puts a flag there in your hair.

Did you know you were a port of sorts
for alien invaders?
Well Widget's made her home down in your favourite pair of trainers.

Finally getting there maybe

Well, Happy New Year to all and sundry. Have a video.
Been tentatively coming towards a final piece for my project. Content to a point with it, but criticism's always welcome.

Also, vimeo seems to have made it taller than it should be. Sad face
