"I'M IN A ROCK 'N' ROLL BAND" ON BBC2!!!

Hey guys,

You'd better be watching BBC2's "I'M IN A ROCK 'N' ROLL BAND!"-- a 6 part series starting this Saturday night at 21.40!!!

I was brought in by post production company SumCreative to join artists Mike Collins and Steve Beaumont on illustrating a pile of semi animated cutaway scenes of anecdotes told by top rock legends like Iggy Pop, Sting and Gene Simmons!!!

By the time I'd been brought in to help on this job, an artistic style had already been established, so don't expect to see any "Defoe" style renderings--this will look more like my "Bionicle" style

What you'll be able to see of my work in particular:
--The shadowy band members in the main title sequence (pay close attention to the drummer, who looks particulary attractive *ahem*)...

--I've been inking a large number of Steve Beaumont's pencils.

--I'm pencilling/inking some full scenes later on in the series, one of which involves the legendary KISS!!!

All these images have been coloured, animated and beautifully jazzed up with computery wizardry by the top people at SumCreative who have produced opening title/credit sequences for shows that I can guarantee that you've seen and been impressed by...

Once I've got the go ahead, I'll post up some pics to go with this.

But seriously, watch this show! It looks like it's going to be fantastic!

(P.S. Saturdays are officially my favourite day of the week---Total Wipeout, Doctor Who, and now this!!!)

The drummer is pretty good looking, but that lead singer...oooohweee! I'd buy that for a dollar.

To be honest, the drummer is so sexy he should have been the lead singer....

Oh no! It's on at the same time as the Prisoner! Dammit

Life is full of tough decisions Rob....this aint one of them!

Yeah, they were nice and handled nicely too. Good show as well - but suffered a bit from trying to get so many folk in that there wasn't much time to actually show what made them all so special.

I see your point, but don't worry Mangamax, there's another 4-5 episodes of interviews to delve into it more...

Cool. Will be tuning in then!
