Nessie vs Kraken

My pic for a sketch jam theme 'myths and legends'. Not the most original choices, but I don't know that I've ever seen them together.

I hear that Ceefax is being closed down today, which is a real end of an era for people my age. As far back as I can think, it's always been there. And for nearly all that time it always felt so delightfully retro. So simple. In terms of art and design I've always felt you can get really nice results with a very limiting medium. It's a fun task to see what you can create with only a few colours and a tiny resolution. I'm sure this is one of the reasons people still enjoy creating pixel art. There's a real challenge to it, to get across the required detail in such a small picture and still have it read well...

But I digress. Here's a picture I did. I even drew the text.

He's Going to Eat It

A sneak peek at a personal project I'm working on. Stage 1 of 3 is finally complete - a little behind schedule, but all the hard work is done now.

This was meant to be Rutger Hauer as Roy Batty from Blade Runner, but it ended up looking a lot more like Gordon Ramsay. I've changed him since, but I still feel that this looks more like Ramsay than the new one looks like Hauer. Bit disappointed.
