Well, first you've got to win a lottery, and have the guts of a monkey going spare. Head over to Tyler Stout's blog for details.

I do like to keep my readers updated in the corner of the internet we'll call "Paul Pope as a genre". Just as Kirby begat a nation of copyists within his own lifetime, Pope seems destined for the same fate.
Next up is Roxie Vizcarra, who's work I saw linked to today on Drawn. Here's her blog, and here's her website. I like how she's listed some other Pope-influenced artists in her sidebar, but not the man himself. That should throw off the hounds. No-one will ever figure it out.

Okay folks, this saga is old news for those following me on Twitter, but my sister bought me a lovely print of Tom Baker by Brad Collins for Christmas. I was quite touched by this, not least because Brad included such a lovely note with the item. I came home late on Christmas night, put it rather slovenly on my couch along with my other presents, and then went out again on Boxing Day. I returned to my house around eleven that night to find a burst pipe in my attic showering half of my house with hot water, including, yes, the couch with all my presents on it. Bugger.
Anyway, here's a before and after:
|Tom, clean and dry.|
Anyway, when I contacted Brad to ask if I could buy a replacement, he volunteered to send me one for free. What an absolute sweetheart. Such loveliness deserves some robust plugging, so here's a link to Brad's Etsy shop, please buy lots of his lovely stuff. And here's his blog. And here's his Facebook page.

I love these things, but stayed away from doing one before 'cus, hey, I'm a blogger not a cartoonist. But after a gentle little nudge from Dan Haycocks on Twitter yesterday, I've finally got around to it. Easier than I thought, though I could have kept on going and added dozens more people/things/snacks.
Meanwhile, the Influence Maps of every proper artist who ever lived can be found collated here.

Just saw this. Dodgy coding, but I'll let it stand.
