Wishing You A PECULIAR Christmas...

This is my Christmas card for 2012.  Well, it's the one I did to send to my friends and any neighbours and family members who have read, or at least know about, my comics.  I drew a different card to send to everyone else, which is basically a boring version of the Department of the Peculiar card, with me and my wife (and our dog) replacing the DOTP gang.  Here it is:

Happy Christmas!

Bottom of Solace

This is the other James Bend pic I did for Martin Eden.  Martin ended up using the first image ('The Man With The Golden Bum') in the Spandex Black & White mini-comic that came with Spandex #7 (highly recommended), but I think I prefer this one.  The other one is funnier, but this one is better drawn.

The Man With The Golden Bum

Here's something I did for the Spandex Black & White mini-comic that came with #7 of Martin Eden's excellent superhero series, Spandex. This is Martin's character James Bend who, as his name suggests, is a gay version of James Bond.  I also did another (less-cartoony) James Bend pic which I prefer, so I'll post that on here, too, once Martin has posted it on his own site.

That Poor Yellow Bastard / Firefly

Here's a couple of things I drew recently for the Weekly Themed Art Blog, which I joined a couple of weeks ago (I am unable to post stuff to the blog myself as I don't have access yet, so I'm just posting to the Facebook group page for now).  Last week's theme was 'the mean streets of the big city', which made me think of Sin City, which I've never been able to take all that seriously, hence the above image.  The week before that the theme was 'the films and TV shows of Joss Whedon', which led me to produce the hurriedly drawn, piss-poor image of Inara from Firefly that you see below. 

This week's theme is 'The Hobbit', which is going to be a real struggle for me because I've never read the books, have never particularly wanted to read the books, and only ever watched the Lord of the Rings films because my wife wanted to see them (I really enjoyed the second one but was very bored during the other two).  If I manage to come up with something, I'll probably post it on here, too.

More DOTP #2 Inks

Here's the inked version of that panel from Department of the Peculiar #2 (page 12) that I posted in pencilled form last week.
