Mark Howard aka The Legendary Shark is putting together a tribute book for comic book legend Ron Smith. Ron is in his 80's and Mark figured it was about time to present him with a good fandom 'thank you.' Mark had previously compiled the 'Carlos Ezquerra' book.
I'm going to push for more people to contribute to this project on the 2000ad Podcast and on the 2000ad forums.
To me, Ron Smith was the definitive Judge Dredd artist in the 80's. Most people pick Mcmahon or Bolland...but looking back, Ron was a genius. To me, he was the British 'Jack Kirby'.

Yeah...I know...it's all very Russ Meyer. That was the point. I'd never draw Andserson like that for a 'real' Dredd strip. It was just for a giggle.

This is a rough idea for a picture I promised Luke Foster for sending out me out a Dredd trade 'The Chief Judges Man'. It's been a while since I posted and a while since I got back to the drawing board really. It shows a bit.
Its' got all the elements I think that sum up the strips classic period. It's got Milli-Com, Nu Earth, The Quartz Massacre, Brand and Brass, Venus Bluegenes, Major Magnum, Helm, Bagman and Gunnar...and Rogue himself.
Hopefully I can make good for Luke on this image.

1. Finish the novel I'd been working on. Still working on it...bit by bit day by day. I do figure I'll have it complete by the end of year. So, that's going well.
2. Build a life-size replica of a Dalek. I bit off more than I could chew with that one. I've been too busy to even start on it. This one might be a goal for next year.
3. Lose a ton of weight. Well, this worked up until I came back from Ireland in mid-June. I had lost 20 pounds up to that point...and then beer and Irish food took over. I'll be back on my weight loss plan on Monday. Bikram Yoga will help and cutting down on the booze should help that along. :-)
4. Win another soccer competition. Got a good chance of that this season. I have assembled a really good team and it looks like we're gelling really well. We'll see.
5. Get Thugs! Issue 4 out by May. Done and dusted.
6. Get more issues of Thugs! done. Working on it. Got Al's script for Issue 5 and have most of it thumbnailed out. I'm cautiously optimistic on this one.
7. Write and draw Superhero Squad type Dredd story. Nearly there. It's three pages. I just finished the centerspread and am currently inking the third page. The color on this sucker killed me.

'Mrs. Browns Boys' was nominated for best sitcom at the BAFTA awards. For US readers it's the equivalent of the Emmy's/Oscars. It was beaten out by a show called 'Rev'. Which, to be honest, I've never heard of until I read the nominations.
From what I'd been reading online about 'Rev', it seemed to be a safer bet then Mrs. Brown. Mrs Brown seemed to 'risque' for the curmudgeons who voted in that category. Brendans show had walloped every other show in the ratings in his time-slot. It seems that 'Rev' was a strange choice to win.
Oh well. Congrats to them and hopefully next year Mrs. Brown will be holding that golden trophy.

Mrs Browns Boys has finished airing on the BBC and it's proved to be a ratings success. Not only in the UK but in Ireland too. It's ratings beat out the Irish TV powerhouse 'The Late late Show' and in the UK it was number one in it's time slot beating out a few new shows.
Read all about it here.... Mrs Brown Rakes in 2.6 Million Viewers
The show kept it's strong showing in the ratings and even the last show got a bump in viewereship. I'm so proud to be a part of this project that took years to bring to the small screen and Brendan and his family deserve all the success for their hard work.
The show has already been renewed for a second season and hopefully I can be part of that and tweak/add to that opening sequence.
