TK 421…. Why aren’t you at your post?!?
A Tank Girl / Star Wars mash up piece I’m doing for someone while I’m visiting NZ.
Been quite fun, as I also found some old Star Wars figures too!
I’ll be here in NZ for the next month… helping out my Dad. Gonna try and get a little work done too… but please forgive me if I’m slow responding to messages/emails/death threats.
Will post more dumb shit up soon.
annnnd… Here’s me when I was 4, with my beloved R2D2, C3PO, and Ben Kenobi toys.
Love, tanks, and Death Stars
So… the cat just puked all over my work pile of art. It’s dangerous being an artist. Oh… and the cat? She’s fine thanks.
Sigh… Rufus xxxx
WHAT ME WORRY?
Couple of parcels to send off with Prints in!
I sent one poor fella the wrong one (due to my low IQ..) so I did him a nice sketch on the parcel to make up for it… and sent him the right print free of charge of course.
Ripley, my cat, looking on utterly unimpressed….
Love and tanks,
Thank you Everyone for an amazing show at the MCM Expo! Thanks to the Organisers, volunteers, all the incredible Cosplayers, fans and supporters!
We also signed a whole bunch of Tank Girl stuff (Sofie worked with me on We hate Tank Girl and Bad Wind Rising) and met some amazing Tank Girls and Jet Girls!
Thanks everyone for your support and kindness… we met so many cool people!
Now getting ready for THOUGHT BUBBLE Comic Con in Leeds in a few weeks (16-18 Nov.)… see you all there!
Over and out…..
IN THE STUDIO
My studio could easily be mistaken for a junk shop…but I do honestly try and get some work done…occasionally.
I like to surround myself with the stuff I collect and love… and judging from the photo… this has proved pretty successful.
Right…back to work!

MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM set!
When I was a little kid, my family lived in Japan. It’s a pretty crazy place, and for a kid obsessed with robots and Star Wars, I was in Heaven.
My favourite was Gundam, and I had this little set of simple diecast robots ( White Gundam, Green Zaku, Red Char Aznable Zaku, and a purple Dom). I played with them til they fell apart…and I’ve finally managed to find a set intact!
It’s lovely seeing these little guys again, sitting in their pretty box. CLOVER, the toy company were hugely under rated.
Well, I’m off to have a space battle!!

Finally….. RO-JAWS has arrived!
1/6 scale. Classis colour scheme.
I tried to design him up as a cross between Mick McMahon and Kevin O’Neill’s classic design!
I wanted him to look like he did in the comic when I was a kid. He’s a foulmouthed street cleaner/service robot… He even comes with a turd you can keep in his ‘stomach’ compartment!

Here’s the fabulous custom TG toy I was given by the generous and amazingly talented Carlo Cacho, while at the RVHK show in Kowloon, Hong Kong! He’s an an incredible customiser…
He even got her the same hat as I have!!!
LOVE LIKE BLOOD
A rough design for a print/poster for SDCC 2012!
I’ll be there launching SOLID GOLD DEATH MASK at the 3A/IDW booth, signing books, offending people, and doing shit sketches with Ashley Wood.
Come along and say hello, and get the first book!
