Best Of The Year for the Forbidden Planet blog

It's that time of the year again - here's my fave films, comics and books of 2014 :

I'd also recommend Charles Burns' 'Sugarskull' and Terry Hayes 'I Am Pilgrim'. They'd have easily made the list, but I read them after I wrote it.

Blatherington Manor

 I drew a 5 page story, 'Blatherington Manor', for 'The Fitzroy' comic anthology, and it's available now from all comic shops of taste and refinement. It's a comic tie-in to the forthcoming The Fitzroy movie.
You can also get it online at the Dead Canary Comics website: 
Dead Canary Comics | Welcome to The Fitzroy

Here's the rather swanky cover (not by me):

From the back of the comic:
'1950's Britain, the UK is covered in a poisonous gas but society struggles on, confident in the belief that nothing important has really changed.
The Fitzroy explores this world through six twisted tales of death, mayhem and the finest tea from the dark edges of the British Isles.'

Blatherington Manor, written by C.S. Baker, is a charming tale of post-apocalyptic survival, Jeeves and Wooster style. This is the first time I've drawn a story that I didn't write - and also probably the first story I've done that doesn't contain any blood, death, or spurting genitals. I thought it'd make a change, and I think it turned out pretty well. I had fun, as always, designing the characters and nailing their facial expressions..

Future Of The Left T-shirt design

T shirt design for the band's upcoming UK tour. I 'sampled' the shadowy figure from the sleeve of one of the band's previous albums, Travels With Myself And Another (designed by Michael Byzewski at Aesthetic Apparatus), and messed with it on Photoshop. Kind of reminds me of the sculptures of Alberto Giacometti.

Here's what the design looks like with a few of the layers removed (quite nice, I think):
