Hey guys,

Back from an enjoyable weekend where I consumed WAY too many pasties...

Right,first of all I'd like to guide you into the furry arms of the talented folks at SCOTCH CORNER where I'm today's "guest artist" and contributed a drawing of Judge Dredd with Defoe that I did a year or so ago.

SCOTCH CORNER is a daily art blog, hosted by six uber talented Scottish blokes in skirts--sorry, I mean kilts : Graeme Neil Reid, Gary Erskine, Andy Hepworth, Jon Hodgson, and Thomas Crielly (with one more artist to be announced) and a guest artist once a week.

Everyday a new piece of art is posted, each artist posting on a certain day.

It's a FANTASTIC idea and the guys freely admit "this blog is shamelessly inspired and ripped off from the ELECTIC MICKS."

ELECTIC MICKS will forever be known as the creators, the originators, the mummy and daddies of this very successful style of daily art blog.

It's said that if you speak the names of these seven Irish men out aloud, a tiny leprecahn appears and kicks you in the nuts. I'd rather not risk that, but if you do, their names are Declan Shalvey, Will Sliney, PJ Holden, Stephen Mooney, Stephen Thompson, Nick Roche, and Bob Byrne.

Both these art blogs deserve all the success they get, so please stop by and say hi--you will not regret it. If you do, I'll apologise and say the sacred names of the Irish men three times...

Finally, I'd like to give a big shout out to Edward Kaye of the comic book industry site HYPERGEEK!

Edward reports comic book news, reviews, interviews all the way from Canada, but what's really great is that he's flying the flag for 2000AD, so may the mighty Tharg bless you sir! We humble droids salute you! He's wrote a great piece (click on the link) called:

He's also starting a new weekly feature called "Thrill Power Thursday" where he'll be talking about the latest 2000AD issues, as well as any other related features he can come up with. But you can read more about his "Statement of Intent" HERE.

Thanks again Edward!
