The Wizard

 

It was a sad day to be sure, but Sir Christopher Lee led a long and interesting life. At 93 he was certainly older than many when they eventually shuffle off to have tea with Death.

Here is a little tribute, the first of three pictures.

So long Mr Lee, thanks for all the memories.

Mrs Hope and I had an idea for a story involving pirates, ghosts, maidens and of course, lots of treasure…

And while the preparation for the main story is being finished off and edited, we thought we should do a prequel of sorts and introduce the characters.

The Fastidious Barnacle and The Inevitable Booty is a short story which introduces the two main characters, Captain Edgar, and Smokey Big-Ears.

The paperback book (which we have self published for now) is available in my online shop right now and for a limited time, get a Captain Edgar sketchcard and a free badge!

A few years ago, at Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival, i met a guy called Lewis. We chatted for a little while and then parted ways. Since that first meet, we have met a couple of times and chatted online. Mr Moss wanted to sculpt something using one (or more!) of my illustrations. I sent a couple of pictures. I received a couple of progress shots before Christmas and then i forgot about it…

Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when Lewis sent me some pictures of a sculpture he had made from a drawing of mine. Below is the progress shots from Lewis, and a link to his DeviantArt page. Do yourselves a favour and go check out his awesome works.

Here in the UK, Where’s Waldo(?) is called Where’s Wally(?).

This doesn’t make a whole lot of sense as the bad guy is still called Odlaw. Not Yllaw. But hey, it doesn’t matter.

I saw a comment someone had made on Twitter about how everyone wanted to know where he is…but never asks him HOW he is.

I was inspired to make this picture of our beloved hiding friend. I ask you not Where or How Wally/Waldo is…but WHEN he is.

Here’s my version of a timetravelling Waldo.

Time Waldo

I’ll end this post with this. HA!

There he is.Also, big thanks to Martin Handford for creating this elusive SOB.
