ministry of magic, part 2

Ever since I found out Stuart was working at the Ministry of Magic, I had been curious to get a tour. So yesterday evening, when I was coming back from leading a workshop at the Institute of Education, I popped in to visit Stuart at Old Scotland Yard. Except you don't 'pop' in to the Ministry of Magic, you are beamed in. I swear, this is true! If go there and you peek around the door, you can see the human-sized test tubes.



Hey, have a look at this drawing sent to me by Aaron 'Smurf' Murphy (smurf_uk), who drew it while hiding out in an underground Derbyshire bomb shelter:




He writes: Anyway getting to the point I've been working on a promo comic for the Leeds Thought Bubble festival and one of the panels is a pile of Brit comics in all their glory. As you can imagine 2000AD and the Beano are in there aswell as the much missed DFC.

And what did I put on the DFC cover?

V&L, man.

Attached is the panel in question. I figured you might get a kick from my attempt at drawing Pickle Rye's most famous residents.


...You made my day, Mr Smurfman!
