'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring because they were all out at the Library in Islington chuckling at festive comedy. Get yourself down there tonite and check out Inel and the gang and enjoy their comic stylings. Here are the deets, it's bound to be a good night. And yes, thank you for noticing, I did draw the characters on the poster.
Did any of you enter that competition to see if you could get a fifty pence piece made up by the Royal Mint to celebrate the Olympics? I see that a few embarrassing efforts have started doing the rounds (oooh so much bitterness in one so old) so I presume I didn't place. This was my entry, but there's no chance of taking two of these down the Pound Shop to get a packet of Vimto Bon Bons.
Well it's finally out, the game that I spent most of the Summer on has been accepted by the Apple Store and is ready to buy and for only 59p too. Now that's a bargain you can't say no to. This app is a dating sim, virtual pet and collection of fantastic mini games all with that graphical expertise you've come to expect from yours truly. But don't just take my word for it have a look at the Mini Gay Boy Friend website for a more detailed description of what it's all about. Here's some screenshots to whet your appetite. Now do me proud and go and buy it be you gay, bi, straight or just mini curious.
As it's coming up to Christmas I'd like to remind you that if you're thinking of getting a pet that you're not going to eat such as a turkey, chicken or piglet then think again carefully. Pet's aren't just for Christmas, some can last as long as Easter occasionally.
Of course I'm joking. I love pets and would quite like one for Christmas. Especially one of those fuzzy worms on a string. They really are a lot of fun.
Has another week gone by again already? Where does the time go?
Well tomorrow is Wednesday and that means Dandy time again. So that also means you get to see a new Korky story. But wait, there's more. I have a brand new strip debuting in this issue, which incidentally is a massive Christmas special like you used to get in the old days before the internet and when there was only four channels on the telly. Bear Thrills follows the adventures of this scout leader extraordin-bear and all the zany scrapes he gets into. It should be loads of fun, and I should know, I've seen his first ten adventures. So catch up with his first scrape in The Dandy tomorrow. It's a double page spread too. You've never had it so good.
Piglet kebab anyone? This was going to be a screen print based around the tale of the Three Little Pigs. It never happened though and I haven't posted anything a little disturbing up for ages so here you go.
There's loads of exciting things happening in the Dandy at the moment. This week sees Korky go full page and next week my new strip, Bear Thrills starts. As I was thumbing through this issue I noticed my little dot to dot page has snuck in. Not one to shy away from puns I present to you The Sheriff of Dottingham. I used to love dot to dot puzzles when I was tiny. I remember my Grandad making me do them with a ruler, which kind of took the fun out of it.
Tomorrow is my first full page Korky Strip for the Dandy. This is quite an achievement as he was almost dropped from the comic and it was only the constant whinging of me and one of the staff artists that saved him from the chop. This would have been a massive shame for the nation so it's good to see that he's been popular enough to have been given a full page again and continues as one of the longest running comic characters in the world.
Tomorrow's adventure sees him going to Banarnia as I cash in on the popularity of the Chronicles of Narnia franchise for my own ends. So be sure to get the comic, just look out for Harry Hill (I'm confidently guessing) on the cover and brace yourself for chuckles.
December is upon us and snow is falling heavily in Hove tonite. So as the advent month begins how about a picture of some dead animals. This is from an exciting project I've been working on since about May and it has been a lot of fun. Reader's voice: "What could it be?"
I'm not saying yet, but keep it Corbett to find out. All will be revealed soon enough (if all goes to plan).
Being the illustrator extraordinaire and wondrous wordsmith that I am, I will endeavor to entertain you through the pages of this blog. I am still not sure if there will be any point to my ramblings but I feel that it has to be done so I am doing it. May God have mercy on all our adorable souls.
