Feeling vaguely guilty about being rude about the last couple of generations of 2000AD artists recently, thanks to Brian Unpronounceable-Surname. Anyway, here's a round-up of recent stuff by some current Toof artists I do like.
For starters, BL-acquaintance Leigh Gallagher recently went to see Simon Pegg at a book signing, and presented him with this SPACED-referencing sketch.
Boo Cook drew Hellboy for a tattoo-artist friend. Not as impressive as Ron Abernethy's actual Hellboy tattoo, but let's not quibble.
Simon Fraser returned to drawing Judge Cassandra Anderson for a private commission.
Dylan Teague keeps posting amazing sketches and commissions at his blog.

I'm terribly fond of Laughing Indio's blog. His work has a great sense of transgression and absurdity that would make him a great fit at 2000AD, if only The Current Tharg had any discernible sense of his comic's heritage of publishing the work of bold stylists. Whoops, sorry, don't get me started, etc.
Just as the Comics Code Authority once banned Kev O'Neill purely for his mind-melting style rather than any actual breaking of their guidelines, Indio seems to have similarly offended the delicate souls at Blogger, who've hid his blog behind a content warning page. Good man, that.

The elusive Andrew Robinson has posted new art to his blog twice (!) in one night. Looks like he's working on a biography of Brian Epstein, called THE FIFTH BEATLE. He says he's 40 pages in to the 120 page project. Those of us still waiting for the next issue of DUSTY STAR may well go "yeah, right" at this point. But you go, girl! etc.

Matt Timson's Dirty Frank. Which is not an obscure and revolting sex act, but is in fact a digital painting.
The greatest two additions to the Judge Dredd canon of the last decade have probably been Andy Diggler and Jock's Lenny Zero, and Rob Williams' insane-but-sweet Wally Squad detective Dirty Frank from Low Life. Just saw this on Twitter, loved it: Matt Timson paints Dirty Frank. All similarities between Frank and Alan Moore remain entirely coincidental, obviously. Alan Moore doesn't wear an eyepatch.
