Comics. Internet. Art…… here we go……

INJ Culbard Lovecraftian horror (and an update on his work for 2012):

Laura Howell‘s brilliant versions of Gilbert & Sullivan meet a certain Doctor….

Sarah McIntyre’s Don Quixote fan art birthday card for her dad:

Andi Watson’s Conan…. and his lovely bangs:

Dave Sim does Doc Strange (sort of)…. I’ll assume this is a commission – anyone any definite info on it? (Via Aw Yeah Comics)

Ron Embleton (Via Grantbridge Street)

Silly, but funny… Nik Holmes rejigs his Grand Theft Tardis t-shirt idea, with classic Tom Baker Who (cheers to Joe for the link)

    Dave Sim’s Dr Strange artwork was a commission he did back in December 2006 entitled “Dr Strangeroach”. More info here:

    That is the start of the discussion on the commission and then through Dec 7th he talks about the creation of it.
