A bit of freehand painting in Illustrator. Didn't turn out too bad.
Through luck more than skill, Bob hits the big time.
Of course it has its own slang and jargon. Best not to ask really.
So what is a cryptocurrency? No one is quite sure really. It can do stuff, it just isn't that ...
All about the blockchain.
There now starts a short course on how bitcoin actually works. Lets just say it involves a lot of b ...
And so it begins.
Bach when bitcoin wasn't worth much, people still managed to trade with it.
In principle, this is how it works. There are machines that can guess millions of numbers per secon ...

I have been following the whole Bitcoin scene for a few years now and I thought it is about time I d ...
Our heroes take a break in between posing for comics.
Started planning the next story. In the meantime here is a poster of Ted in space. Dunno why. Jus ...
One of them is already fairly cubist. The other is more triangulist.
Sometimes you just have to go back and re-evaluate things.
Some borders are there to keep people out and some to keep people in. It all depends on your perspe ...
Just because I felt like it. Another attempt at a different style.
A month or two since the last update but nothing has changed. Well, apart from the ever increasing ...
Of course, what you want and what you get are two completely different things.
Bobs demands are quite simple really.
Of course, Bob doesn't really know what he wants. But neither do Ted and Susie.
Seems someone is fed up with being the butt of the jokes.
Uh oh, the story has leaked to the press? What will happen next?
The demands are made. Are they unreasonable ?
A tribute to Carlos Ezquerra, who helped create Judge Dredd and who passed away recently.
I suppose we had to have a Brexit joke at some point.
Its a royal wedding in a weeks time but we dont want to dwell on that. The comic is taking a change ...
That's the end of this story arc.
Lets start wrapping things up in a vaguely gothic style ..;.
Can you dig it?
You try finding something funny about the London Underground?
For some reason it all gone a bit "Game of Thrones" for this episode. Don't sak me why. It just se ...
Not bad going really.
If there is zero visibility, then what's the difference?
What will they find? Who knows? Me hopefully.
I see this current story as a mix of typographic and illustrated panels. Probably go back to 3D aft ...
The plot (and the hole) deepens
I will admit I am doing a graphic design course at the moment, so the comic is becoming an outlet fo ...
A slightly more freehand cartoon drawn in Illustrator.
More of the same.
Having a play with Adobe Illustrator as its a bit easier to use than 3DS-Max. This is a very rough ...
The hidden storied behind some recent pop songs. Tunes by Katy Perry, Rhianna, Pharrell Williams, t ...
Well, I suppose I had to do a Brexit joke eventually. So many to choose from.
As the simpsons said, there will be Hell Toupee.
It is like watching a car crash. You know it is going to end badly but you can't take your eyes off ...

Ten years later and after some 3D Max training, I am ready to brings the Nurbs back to life. Things ...
After 10 years away, the Nurbs are back!
Last of the old ones is a T2 send up...
The Matrix parody.
Back when Jonathan Woss was hosting the weekly film show.
And we are back as if nothing ever happened. A bit like every time Superman dies.
Hell is other people. If they listen to radio 4.
This one I really like. Took a lot of research and prep. GW has come and gone but Simon Cowell is ...
You donâ€™t really get the booming voice in this one.
FX should really be added in post, and not be part of the model.
While most of the other scenes reused the same setting, this one required a whole new landscape. Sh ...
Still rocking the comic sans look.
One of the more abstract looking ones. I think that was a house, a road and a river.
One of my favourites. Especially the birds.
Gad as a spotlight.
If god is everywhere, does that mean he is watching us in the shower and on the toilet?
Remember Quentin Tarantino? I do. He was good for a couple of films. Also, new look character mod ...

I was quite surprised when it reached #50. I think the characters have become themselves now. Of c ...
Which segues nicely into the next story.
Ted is looking a bit Marilyn Manson in this one. Good look.
David Dickinson was his name.
Needs some Daft Punk playing in the background.
Obviously using some painting software with layers and transparency now. Probably Paint.Net.
Didnâ€™t it drag on.
This is where Bob goes orange.
I have never really been there but it does have a certain rep.
Of course, as the faces were just textures drawn on the shapes, they didnâ€™t appear in these pics. ...
Playing around with the settings in the 3D rendering software. You can get this proper cartoon effe ...
Ok, it is going to get a bit â€œmetaâ€ for a while. Thats a warning.
Just some pictures.
Skilled at breaking into houses and leaving things without being noticed. Technically he is an anti ...
He could probably do with some pointy ears, but you get the gist.
Ainâ€™t that the truth.
The way the elves face stretches round the sphere of its head makes it look slightly evil. Itâ€™s n ...
Is this the first new character to appear? Keeping it minimal.
We have lots of seagulls round here. They say it is a sign of good luck. Iâ€™m not so sure.
I would like to apologise for the use of comic sans in these strips. I donâ€™t know what I was thin ...
Bob was turning into a slightly innocent, slightly stupid character by this point. It would stick f ...
Ted is using all three facial expressions in this one. Who said he canâ€™t act.
I am guessing we were in December now. This is the first of the really long story arcs.
No idea what this was about. Guess we won something.
Lets talk about the weather.
Classic. Only thing I would do differently is move Bobs second response to the last panel.
Again, playing with the comic form.
Not sure about this one. Itâ€™s usually public school boys doing the apologising.
The public apology for something someone else took offence to.
Well, it made me chuckle.
Especially considering none of them seem to have a job or anything.
For any foreign readers, google Eastenders. Itâ€™s not a happy place.
Playing with the comic form here.
Letâ€™s face it, the last thing you could ever imagine Posh Spice doing is singing.
I think I had just come back from a business trip to the states. God, their idea of breakfast â€¦
Same old excuses as today.
Some thing never go out of fashion
You did have to wonder what the ulterior motive was for having their conference in Brighton.
Is the glass half empty, or is it constantly draining away like our lives and our happiness. ;)
Merry flipping Christmas.
Now for some pop culture. What goes around, usually comes around. A couple of times.
Was this the first Iraq war or the second one? Probably the first.
Everyone loves fractals. Donâ€™t they? Maybe a hint of something slightly edgier here.
Itâ€™s a first world problem, but itâ€™s still a problem.
Bit of politics.
Ted and Suzies characters are there. Bob has changed a bit as time went on.
Letâ€™s face it. In the beginning it was very basic. A free version of Cinema 4D and M$ Paint for ...
