He is the law.

My entry in last weeks Ozcomics drawing challenge. I went with a Hollywood adaptation dissing theme for my Judge Dredd entry.

Holidays out of the sun.

I have just returned from a very relaxing holiday that included pursuits such as swimming, tennis and general healthy outdoor living. Of course as a dedicated indoorsman I still found time to include a Community DVD marathon and a bit of face time with my newly acquired iPad. Specifically seeing if it could operate as a decent drawing tablet with the help of an AluPen I picked up cheaply off the ebays and an app called Sketch Club. My choice to use Sketch Club was pretty arbitrary as there are a lot of decent looking drawing apps out there but it was cheap [$3 on the US iTunes store], has a nice range of brushes and most impressively includes layers with blend modes, photoshop style. It also has a cool feature that allows you to create a time lapse video of your illustration being created [I love watching other artists do these] and quite a thriving online community that you can upload and display your art with fellow digital scribblers.

Once you go Bat you'll never go back.

This week's Ozcomics challenge theme is Comic book romance. I've gone a little outside the box here [not as outside as my original homoerotic Batman and Robin concept] and honed in on Adam West's mighty 60s tv batman as opposed to the comic book version. Specifically the game changing moment when Bat was charmed by a groovy chick onto the dance floor where he lit rip with some almighty dance moves. Let us revisit this...

I hope Christopher Nolan somehow works this scene into The Dark Night Rises. I'm sure Christian Bale would be up for it - he seems to enjoy a laugh.

Anyway, here is my pictorial tribute to this great moment in Batman lore.

Metal Elf.

Here's an illustration created for no better reason than to imagine an Elf listening to Elf's self titled album whilst making use of the hallucinogenic qualities of Elfland's bountiful supply of magic mushrooms.

Crazy like a bat.

Each week Ozcomics has a cool super hero themed draw off - If there is a better use of my time I'd like to hear about it. My first entry is for this week's theme of Batgirl...
