controlled rage and a public hanging

This morning I decided I wanted to draw a rampaging robot because I have so much work to do today that it's scaring me slightly. But then it looked funnier if I put nedroidcomics' Beartato inside at the controls. Which, come to think of it, is probably more worrying than a nutty robot by itself.

Oh, and The Angel of Death comic also features a bear in slightly the wrong context, over on Fumblog. (Hooray, Jamie Smart!)

On the way to the post office yesterday, I noticed that there was a man strung up on one of the college towers. We don't usually get this kind of vigilante justice in Greenwich, so I had to investigate:

Turns out the Wolfman film crew had returned to film some of the stunt scenes. (I saw them in April last year.) On closer scrutiny, the hanging body was only a mannequin, not even an MP who spent taxpayer money on his duck island, and I hung around for about two minutes before I realised I wasn't going to get to see very much action. The fleet of carriages came back, too:

Hey, cool aniamtion! While there are no hangings, there's some fabulous stick figure action going on over in this spaghetti western, Clint West: Welcome to Damned City by Studio Camara.

comic wins this year's turner prize

So I was playing tennis with James Turner the other day... Oh my goodness, you so have to see his latest comic! Go now!

Edit: Hey, I just found some art prints and the five remaining copies of Nice Cup of Tea and a Deadline in my loft, so I WILL have something to sell at the Expo tomorrow. Meet you at Gary Northfield's table at 2pm! And James Turner will be there, too! And loads of other fab DFC people!
