It’s been a while!! But I’ve been, busy. Yeah. Any who, I was looking through my old sketch book last night and I found a comic I was working on last year!!
It was a 3 panel comic set in a post-apocalyptic world! I already sketched 20 pages, but I didn’t write down the script!
So, last night I wrote the “script” behind the sketches. It probably had different dialogue when I originally drew it, but it seems to flow pretty good now!
I’ve decided to carry on this comic. It seems a waste of effort to just discard it! Especially if I have 20 pages done up! If it was to be updated online 3 times a week, I would already have 2 months worth of work already done up! Well, after inking, colouring & typing!
Anyway, here’s a snap shot of the comic I found! Expect an update soon and a link to the comic!
Written & Starring: Reece Shearsmith & Steve Pemberton
As a fan of The League Of Gentlemen, I was excited by the new anthology series by Steve Pemberton & Reece Shearsmith!
All the episodes will only be linked that the episodes happen in houses or rooms with the number 9.
The first episode, called sardines, insisted of an engagement party playing a game of sardines as an icebreaker.
The whole episode was acted out brilliantly and gave the same laugh out loud moments that the league deliver! Even with the dark secrets of inscest, peadophilia & murder venturing out you couldn’t help laugh until all secrets are out and the final twist is revealed!
If you’re a fan of the gentlemen, or remember the old portmanteau series like Twilight Zone, Tales Of The Unexpected etc. Then I recommend this series for you!
Can’t wait for the next episode!
I drew up another Sketchmare, I had an urge to draw a clown so I did. But I wanted a worried clown, and something in the darkness. Behold my sketch!!
“Game Over Clown” – 4/2/14
I had an urge, one late night, to draw something. It had me thinking that I could do it as a weekly blog. Also, it can help me improve my art! Maybe! So here’s my first sketchmare.
Plague Doctor Thing – 27/01/14
I haven’t written anything on here for over a month. I don’t know why exactly! Christmas has been and gone. The new year happened, fireworks went off. Food was eaten, lots of food. Too much in fact.
So what now? Well, I need to watch a few more films. I’m looking forward to Godzilla, the trailer looked amazing!
I’ve been umming and ahhing over comics. I’ve finally settled with a story and a way of doing the pages too. The new comic will be called HAMMER after the name of the main character. I’ve decided to do it as a noir style horror thing. One panel pages with a big narrative at the top. The first story will involve him getting back into his private investigator role. Expect some weirdness, cynacism and a few nods to horror, sci-fi & TV shows here and there.
This is a snippet off the first page. Let me know what you think of the style.
That’s it for now! Hopefully I will update this blog more often!

I finally got around to watching this film and I have to say, it’s mediocre at best. Although, the premise is great. The plot is, a family come to the parents 35th wedding anniversary at their home. The parents are super rich and their children with their partners are whiney and annoying. The film starts off much like a slasher. Two people having sex (breaking an essential golden rule for all slasher films) then one has a shower whilst the other puts music on. Woman gets killed, man gets killed, film starts. That has not given away the rest of the movie I assure you. But people do get killed. Some in a very comical way.
I had high hopes for this film, just because the trailer was so good. It looked like it would be an all out blood bath from the start. But what I got was a few deaths here and there, sibling rivalry and someone who just happened to have “survival training”.
Don’t get me wrong, the film isn’t terrible. It is mediocre though. As I was watching the flick, my mind wondered off and I started thinking of other things. But that was when characters were talking and I didn’t care enough to listen to them. They could have done a lot more for the plot. You actually get to see the killers faces which I think takes away the eeriness of the masks. I thought the masks were fantastic though, which was one of the things that drew me to the film. But it was let down by not enough thrills and too much annoying characters.
I would recommend this film with a group so you can laugh and/or shout at silly mistakes! But enjoy the bloodbath, as infrequent as it is.
I thought it would be fun to do a little list of some christmasy films! I’ve tried to mix a bit of differet genres into the list because, this is primarily a horror based blog! So, in no particular order…
BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974)
What a fantastic stalker slasher film this was! I enjoyed it for what it was! Definatly a Christmas must see!
DIE HARD (1988)
I don’t care what anyone says, I love this film! Before anyone says anything. It is a Christmas film, with guns and explosions.
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)
Of course this had to be on here! A beautiful movie. Hopefully they don’t go on with the sequel…
SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT (1984)
Well, Santa with his arm out of the chimney holding an axe. What’s not to like!? Of course the film has a grim theme, but it is a bit of holiday fun!
TRADING PLACES (1983)
I love this film! One of my favourite comedies! I suppose it can be classed as a New Years Eve film too!
I forgot to put this on the list! How foolish! Great movie! You’ll be whistling the tune for weeks after watching!
Well, there’s some films for someone to look up and perhaps enjoy!
Expect some comics soon! ;-)
