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:

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…

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

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.

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?

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…
