Where's Wookiee

Where has that Wookiee got to now?
I was looking at my son's Where's Wally books (Where's Waldo over the water) when this little idea hit me. I had to get sketching! After trying (unsuccessfully) to do a full page of finding the wookiee like inside the books I had a better idea and tried making it look like a book cover instead. This version worked out a lot better and, after drawing more Star Wars charactersin one go than I have since school, I came up with this. I'm pretty pleased with the end result and so far lots of other people seem to like it too, which is always really nice to hear!

As always this is available in my Redbubble store and on Society6 as prints, iPhone cases, greeting cards and T-shirts. Click on over to the Doodle Dojo Store for more info.

Basil's Fury

Basil Fawlty takes out his frustration.
Fawlty Towers is one of those classic British sitcoms. It never seems to get any less funny no matter how many years pass. So I thought it should get a doodle. This is one of my favourite scenes. Basil's legendary anger gets the better of him when the car won't start and so he pays it back in his own special way. I think its the utter uselessness of it that gets me. There's almost no danger of the car being damaged but he rages away it at regardless. It could also be that John Cleese just looks extremely funny swinging wildly at an inanimate object.

If you somehow don't know what it is I'm going on about, just have a click here and enjoy the show.

Head over to the Doodle Dojo Store if you want to get hold of a T-shirt, iPhone case, or even a print.

Horrible Weapons

Horrible weapons as used in some classic horror movies
Horror movies for me are all about the weapons. There are sharp ones, blunt ones and the more off the wall ones! So here is a selection of my favourites. If you had this little lot available I reckon you would be able to survive most zombie outbreaks without too much trouble.

Bonus points if you can name the films they come from too. In this case points don't win you prizes but you do get to be proud of your geekiness!

This is a slightly modified version of the design that I submitted to Threadless. Now that their 90 day period is over, you get to get your hands on it at the Doodle Dojo store instead. Click on through for more details.

In other exciting news (it is to me at least!) I have now started adding my doodles to Society6. So if you are in a helpful mood please feel free to take a look and click that promote button on anything that takes your fancy.

Urk Urk's Gaffi Stick Emporium

Urk Urk's Gaffi Stick Emporium. The best Gaffi Sticks in the Jundland Wastes
Urk Urk is the Tusken raider equivalent of Hatori Hanzo. If you need a quality Gaffi stick, he's the one to get it from. Just head out into the Jundland Wastes and follow Beggar's Canyon. It's just behind the big rock, you can't miss it! Plenty of bantha fodder is available for all our patrons, just make sure you come in single file to hide your numbers.

I don't think its possible to run out of ideas for Star Wars designs. Urk Urk is the way I refer to the Tusken Raider that knocks Luke out. I thought that they must have shops and stuff and why wouldn't they have an Emporium as well, I'm sure they aren't just savages!

Available on loads of stuff at Redbubble. Just check out the Doodle Dojo Store for more details.

Dragon Army Emblem

Ender Wiggin's Dragon Army Emblem
You might have noticed that I'm a little bit of a sci-fi nut. And once in a while its good to indulge the geekiness inside. So when I started thinking about doing a little something to do with Ender's Game, I knew I should just get it out there to stop me dwelling on it too much. So after imagining obscure pictures of people floating around pointing guns I thought I would make it simpler and just go for an emblem instead.

I only got around to reading Ender's Game quite recently, (the shame!) but I'm glad I did catch up, what a great book. And now I hear that there is a film in progress. That could turn out to be awesome, or might be terrible. Hearing that Harrison Ford is going to be in it makes me feel slightly better but who knows with the standard of films these days? Fingers crossed!

In the meantime, head over to the Store and join Ender's Jeesh!
