May flights of angel fish sing thee to thy rest

Loomba the goldfish passed on to the fish tank in the sky yesterday. We will remember her always.

In happier news, the fantastically talented Garen Ewing‘s book, the Rainbow Orchid, is getting close to it’s release date, so I strongly recommend that you have a read of the preview and preorder your copy now – it’s a rip-roaring adventure in a classic style, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

A Legend Begins

Yes, you all asked for it, so here it is: Episode 1 of internet comic sensation, Brunel and Stovie (seemlessly woven on to the end of my previous comic here)! Stand aside, Beaton, there’s a new history comic in town:

I feel like I might have written myself into a bit of a corner in this one, but I’m sure I can work it out. Internet super-stardom, here I come!

Obsessive Gaming Disorder

I was all set to draw my first episode of Brunel and Stovie this weekend, but I encountered a little stumbling block along the way – a little game called Friggin’ Plants Vs Goddam Zombies. Oh god I hate this game, but it will not let me stop playing! Damn you with your cute graphics and surprising depth! I WILL KILL YOU!

I have come to realise that I should just not be allowed to buy games – they always seem like a fun little diversion when I start, but before I know it I am sitting in my underwear, watering virtual plants at 4 in the morning, wondering where my life went wrong – but unable to stop until I have unlocked every. last. little. thing. ARGGGGH.

Ah, who am I kidding? I love Plants Vs Zombies! Weeeeeeeeeee!
