More Rando Than You Can Shake A Stick At…

It’s that sort of time where I have a trawl through my hard drive and scoop up all the bits and bobs that never quite made it beyond a fleeting tweet or some such nonsense. So, whadawegot?

First up is this little experiment of mine to see how easy it was to knock up something vaguely hipsterish looking. Turns out it it’s very bloody easy indeed.

Next up is a bit of punt I took on some Guardian Witness thing. They wanted a new logo for Andy Murray – they got this thing that looks worryingly like it might some far-right gang tag.

Here’s a little B-List Move that slipped through the net – Eat, Pray, Lovejoy!

A while back I was clowning around with one the wonderful Ricky Adam’s photos – ended up looking pretty good but that’s mainly because Ricky takes bloody brilliant photos…

I briefly got quite into blowing up cities in photoshop. Here’s Leeds:

And London:

Believe it or not, I’m actually a right aviation dork – so much so that I spent way too long smooshing this Spitfire together with a Messerschmitt in the hope of making a Frankenfighter…

Right, the next bunch of things probably won’t make a great deal of sense unless you’ve ever come across Polandball. To the uninitiated, it’s basically about making stupid cartoons with very bad grammar in MS Paint that relate to history and geopolitics. I know, sounds like a blast, right? Actually, some of them are incredibly funny and it’s a great community so do check out /r/polandball if you’re interested. I personally only really do the single panel stuff that belongs in /r/polandballart – here’s a few of them…

This one was for a Polandball Film poster contest…

One for their noir contest…

Speed Polandball 2!

And here’s a Yorkshireball gazing down upon a Lancashire Hotpot with barely concealed contempt…

Last but not least, here’s little old me. I got roped into doing some Movember portraits and had to a self one as part of the deal. I’m just not quite so blue in real life.
