The blog of the foolish mortal in the bowler hat. I tend to post art related things, some TF2, and beyond that fairly random stuff.
If you dislike tf2, hats, geekery, skeletons or slash - you will probably dislike this blog.
The fan art community is one of the most creative and active online. Taking pop culture stories and icons as its starting point, the fan community extends those characters into new adventures, unexpected relationships, bizarre remixes, and even as the source material for beautiful art. Limited only by the imagination of the artist, the fan art world is full of surprises and brilliance.
So PBS did a short documentary about fan art - briefly mentioning the slash fandom and the meme faces.
Finally got something large finished for the first time in what feels like eternity. Feels so good, I should do this more often.
Been kicking this around for a couple of weeks. Was originally a concept for a convention t-shirt (they wanted something Dr Strangelove-ish with some Fallout thrown in) but they went with someone else. By then I was already attached so this got the full color workout.
Feel free to point and laugh at my bad lettering job on the Russian there. From my vague understanding - the word on the bomb is in fact the sound of a bomb exploding or alternatively the sound of something heavy falling and breaking. The bit on the tail is a bad translation of my studio name. I think roughly translated it means “foolish dead(ly).”
I hope to get more stuff off of the “work in progress” pile soon, but I gotta wrap up some commission stuff before I can make major progress on that front.
Just reblogging this to say I LIKED John Carter (of Mars) it was a nice fun adventure sci-fi flick. I have no idea why critics didn’t like it or what went wrong with the marketing but seriously. Go see this thing if you are into pulp sci fi stuff.
Also I really did love the creature design work on this film.
