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).

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 “Björk eating puffins”.
Perhaps I should try illustrating Googlewhacks, now that everybody’s forgotten what those are…

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…

Illustrating the pirate’s eternal dilemma – do you listen to the good parrot on one shoulder or the bad one on the other?
