Click on the picture to view the full horror up close. This was my entry in the exhibition From the Loom Room (http://www.fromtheloomroom.com/) which has now ended so you can see it here in this electronic form but not in real life. Which is a shame, as it is better in reality and you could have seen the work of about 50 other talented Illustration types as well. Never mind.
This is an extended insight into the realm of Tom Selleck revealing his love of birds of prey and his close friendship with David Bowie, musician and falconer, and some orphans. It was devised, created and made for the excellent excellent magazine Tiny Dancing which may be found here: http://www.tinydancing.blogspot.co.uk/
and here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tiny-Dancing/157167941002820
All the funky bird of prey facts are correct. Not all the Selleck/Bowie facts were totally verified at the time of going to press. Now read on. If you wish.
Here is a poster for the latest Ukelele Cabaret for you to look at. The main image of which is shamelessly ripped off from the excellent Tom Chantrell 1977 original. However if he had seen the obvious wisdom of including ukuleles in the first place then there would have been no call for me to have drawn this so as to include them. Thus it is his fault. As well as looking you can listen to the ukelele fun on the 13th. For free!
Here is a section through the submarine featured in ‘Another submarine’
As can be seen, there is a concert happening in the bar area of the submarine. The periscope room is very cramped and the diesel engine was manufactured by Kelvin of Glasgow. This was drawn for Patrick and Rachel who may be seen on guitar and voice respectively and is, like the other submarine, 12″ square.
I have been watching the excellent, excellent BBC documentary ‘Frozen Planet’ but have become increasingly worried about the film crews, you know the sort of thing: “Despite the water being cold enough to kill eighteen burly matelots simply by looking at it, Hector, chief cameraman, has decided to swim under the ice wearing only a jumper and sandals to film the krill in their totally utterly deadly natural environment”.
Thus I present a sensible design for aquatic filmmaking in colder climes. As may be seen, it is heated by a stove and there is plenty of floor space for coal and kindling, as well as shelves for snacks, film, spare lenses and the like. It is powered by an electric motor connected to a car battery and, if it were built, would be so comfortable that the Producer would have to lure the camera operative out with promises of massive three course dinners or once in a lifetime shots of polar bears/penguins (delete for appropriate hemisphere) or booze.
If you are in the UK, all episodes of Frozen Planet broadcast so far may be seen on BBC iPlayer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00zj39x/Frozen_Planet_The_Last_Frontier/
