Be prepared

pretty sinister stuff actually

This was a brief with a rather sinister tone to it. Here we had an article on Satanism in South Africa and the police division who handled it; ORCU (occult related crimes unit) headed by Kobus Jonker. It sounds pretty horrible as this form of Satanism preyed on the weak and suggestible, tempting them into a world of desire, instant gratification and zero accountability; only to then subject them to fears of spiritual possession, rape and sacrifice.

Yeah... so haunting to say the least. And yes I may have just made a Lion King reference to keep myself from spiralling into despair.

Anyway these are my attempts at handling a rather serious subject matter in an editorial illustration designed to be disturbing yet not deterring.

These are the first attempts

And on to development and finals.

Mopatop's Shop

Glue fumes and Repetitive Strain Injury

some weeks ago I got my hands grubby at the workshop and made some plastic staircases for my impossible board game. Glue sure is sticky.

some balancing issues arose by the time these staircases got longer

and that's a wrap eh boys and girls?

apologies to all them lolly-gaggers and folly-fraggers who waited day in and day out for a hint of special sauce from my kitchen of delights...

...or something like that....

...I've been doing stuff, just not posting it.

"What a meanie!" you shout, well hoof in your mouth you horsie handkerchief!

this is work for a booklet on the word 'balance'

-Think some of the compositions may need to be reworked (too crowded!) - maybe get rid of the computer type

Muscle up!

Up to date and PUMPED!

Needed to get some life drawing done to up my anatomy skills for these Dune illustrations

Been looking a lot at muscles and their functioning in the body
My good friend Jen and I were in fact discussing arm muscles and all the hoo-ha concerned

Our life model absolutely loves this pose
he referred to it as beheading john the baptist (I think)
