Minipops are back

with 2 comments

It means nowt to you, of course, but it’s a moderately big deal in my own head:

Minipops are back

I started drawing famous people really small in 1999. It was the thing that gave my site a bit of a following. I did a book in 2004 which did alright. I kept on doing them, then in 2009, after threatening (to myself) to do it for ages, I just stopped. But, over the last few months, I’ve had the desire again. I did Sleaford Mods, Nicki Minaj, the 1986 Liverpool team, and a few days ago, The Weeknd.

So, let’s do it again. Reunion tour.

Best of 2015

without comments

Ever since I was a teenager, I’ve always felt like there’s a really great idea that’s just out of reach. Back in my twenties in my university days, it would be there in the dream state you’re in just before properly waking up at noon. And then when I woke up, it’d be gone, and I’d spend a ton of time trying to think what it might’ve been. I still feel like that, but it feels more pressing now. Like, I kinda need that idea to come along, cos I’m sick of being average at what I do. Okay, that’s a tiny bit self-deprecating, but in the grand scheme of thinks I know I’m decent at drawing and ideas, but not Premier League. Problem is, I feel like the last few years, I’ve flirted with relegation out of the Football League, down to non-League football. (Sports metaphors are annoying, I know.) I did this last year (Best of 2014) with similar thoughts in my head. I will do it again now, and hope and hope and hope that I don’t feel like this next December.

So, here’s the things that I did in 2015 that I still quite like.

This Season’s Flags < loads more here

Rave Octagon

Neptune Fish Bar

Kraftwerk 12345678 < eight other drawings here

The boy whose head was a part of the Panama Canal likes vanilla ice cream but doesn’t have a mouth

Football field (dub mix)

Mountains < loads more here

Heroes-The_Idiot

Cactus with daffodils and fairy lights

ME><I<0 < way bigger here

And this, a short animated drawing of King Tubby’s Studio. Nothing much happens, but I dig it:
