Richard Dawkins: Honey Defender

UsVsTh3m’s Richard Dawkins: Honey Defender was a topical little game based on Richard Dawkins’ weird, honey-based rant about airport security. So we put together something where Dawkins rides a bee around an airport, collecting pots of honey and avoiding religious figures. Obviously.

Here’s some of the artwork:

George Osborne’s Austerity Ninja

George Osborne's Austerity Ninja
I’ve been a bit busy with UsVsTh3m stuff to be able to update this blog as often as I’d like. Still, here’s the artwork for something we did recently – George Osborne’s Austerity Ninja.

These little guys float up from the bottom and you have to slash their budgets for cash, but don’t hit your ‘friends’ with the red borders…

Provision for the elderly, police budget, services for the disabled, libraries

Meanwhile, here are some of the ‘baddies’:

The royal baby, bankers’ bonuses, Trident

The game is shouty, OTT fun – have a go at playing George Osborne’s Austerity Ninja now! (If you like).

Tech guy with bear's head
I suppose I could have titled this picture “bear-faced cheek”. Oh well, another missed opportunity. Still, nice to be drawing something less cartoony, for a change.

Other prospective titles: Bespectacled bear. Code-iak. Does a bear IT in the wo… Phew, bad bad puns. Poor koality.

Fox eating takeaway chicken
There is a shop near our house which bills itself as selling “urban cuisine”. I can’t help thinking what that would really entail – pigeon pie? Rat pasties, fox sausages and cockroach kebabs?

Planet of the Apes wedding invitation

Take your stinking paws off her, you damn, dirty ape!
A Planet of the Apes-themed wedding invitation. I look forward to monopolising Google Images search results with this, in the same way I’ve sewn up “Bj√∂rk eating puffins”.

Perhaps I should try illustrating Googlewhacks, now that everybody’s forgotten what those are…

I am quite excited

that I now have an IMDB entry, thanks to a tiny amount of work I did for the inimitable Joel Veitch‘s Mister Wormsley’s Christmas. Immortality beckons…
