I have more comic art work than I have walls, and I do not have nearly enough of it framed and on display and the piece below really should be hanging on the wall somewhere.
This is a piece by Massimo Belardinelli who’s most notable 2000AD work was surely ACE TRUCKING CO. He did do some Dredd, Flesh, Slaine and others but the space haulage comedy was one of the strips from my youth that I still remember with fondness. I love this piece especially because of the lettering. I will show you how they do acetate lettering another time but in this one if you look closely you can see how the lettering has been cut out and glued on afterwards.
Love it love it love it.
Just because I thought it was cool. that’s why/
There are two Dredd films, and I actually love them both. Yes the first is awful for many reasons but seeing Dredd on screen still thrills me. Karl Urban’s Dredd was more to the liking of most than Stallone’s and I agree – that was a fabulous film. I don’t plan to go into all that though. what I wanted to show you was a schematic for a corridor.
More specifically a design sketch for a corridor in the Karl Urban Dredd film.
I just thought it was cool so I bought it…
Gordon Rennie and Mark Harrison bring you Glimmer Rats.
One of my all time favourite 2000AD strips is Glimmer Rats. Written by the legend that is Gordon Rennie and drawn by Mark Harrison it really is a great story and a feast for the eyes.
I picked up a couple of pieces of the art from it on EBAY somehow a few years ago and they are gorgeous sketches what have been water coloured in black and grey. I think. Take a look I hope you like them and if you can you should pick up a copy of it because it is freakishly gorgeous.
