When I was a kid I broke my leg and ended up stuck in hospital for a while, and my mum started bringing me copies of 2000ad to read. When I saw Simon Bisleys Slaine it was a revelation for me. I'd always liked to draw but hadn't really thought too deeply about where I was going with it or what the possibilities were, and here was a guy painting these ridiculously beautiful comics with guys turning into monsters, demons all over the place and gorgeous warrior women with giant boobs. Needless to say I started drawing a lot more from that point on.
The last thing I read of his (and Kevin Eastmans) was Fistful of Blood, a western about a mysterious naked woman fighting a load of vampires all rendered in pencil.
Speedy fanart ahead!

Very nice indeed Ben!

Have to say I just read your earlier blogpost about the trouble you had at work. Something I'm familiar with as well. Sorry to hear about it. Where I used to work, myself and the other two artists I shared a room with, all made sure our Cintiqs were facing away from the door, so our lunchtime scribbles were able to evade prying eyes!

Envy or pity for the creature at the bottom?

I'm so torn right now.
