Revenge of the Frogs

One day the frogs will get their own back, just wait and see.
Back in the very early 80's one frog was getting a really bad deal out of these newfangled video games. Its been a long time coming, but now he has some genetically mutated friends on his side, its time to get revenge. Why don't you try getting across the road and see how much you like it huh?

I don't really know why I was thinking about old school video games. But when I thought about turning one of them on its head I just knew it would make a fun picture. All I needed then was the right frog (or perhaps the right collection of frogs). What more can I say about this one?

Oh I know, its on Society6 and Redbubble as usual, check the Doodle Dojo Store for all the details.

Battle Royale Class 3B Final Report

Battle Royale Class 3B Final Report
What do you do when you've finished watching Battle Royale? Well if you are me you start thinking 'that film was awesome, I want to make a design inspired by it!' Then of course you get carried away come up with an idea and start watching it again. Only this time you take notes on how everyone was killed and in what order and work up a nice poster based on the notes. So there it is, the final report of Class 3B, all 40 kills with the weapon that caused them.

Here's a little close up of the detail. I got carried away with the texture and stuff on this and had great fun getting it right. Not to mention the fun of watching the film again!

As usual this is available on all sorts of great stuff at Society6 and Redbubble. Get all the details over on the Doodle Dojo Store.

Embrace the Chaos

Embrace the Chaos - the first rule of holistic detecting.
I love a good Douglas Adams book so obviously I had to watch the BBC version of Dirk Gently when it aired recently. It wasn't as good as the books, but I imagine its pretty tricky to get all the side thoughts and distractions that crop up in Douglas' writing onto the screen. One thing that did keep seeming to crop up was Dirk telling MacDuff to embrace the chaos. It stuck in my head enough that I wanted to put pencil to paper and do a little something based on it. So here's what I came up with. This is a bit more typographical than my usual stuff. Everyone needs a change now and then after all!

As usual this is available on Redbubble and Society6 on a variety of lovely things. Check out the store for more details.
