Gyar!

Combining the pirate theme from Treasure Island, and the giant spider from the classic adventure novel The Sign of the Spider. (Both in the public domain. Read 'em today!)

Here's a detail:



This is 6 colors on Navy.

It's easier to appreciate in the BIG VERSION. Please check that out. :^)

Thanks for looking!

Re: Gulliver's Travels - Plato's Timaeus



A diver stumbles upon a Lilliputian city, deep under the sea. Maybe Atlantis was here all along, and it only took a closer look to find it.

This right here is pretty awesome. I love the darkness of it. It sets such a spooky mood, totally appropriate for the subject matter.

Re: Moby D/Twenty Thousand Leagues



I really like the design and the colors but the tail fin on Moby not Jane is really throwing it off for me. It has that wispy fish tail look to it that really doesn't mesh with being a whale.

Like the changes although you know how I feel about halftones, those don't look bad though.

Re: Dracula/Frankenstein



A chance meeting in the street?

Note that these two are not competitors here, but a couple of old friends, both businessmen, talking business. This is not Dracula vs. Frankenstein, but Drak and Frank, glad to see each other.

Some real Clash of the Titans action.

Here's a bigger pic cause the shirt one is kinda small.

Re: Kipling/Owen



Screw Guns by Rudyard Kipling
...For you all love the screw-guns — the screw-guns they all love you!
So when we take tea with a few guns,
o' course you will know what to do — hoo! hoo!
Jest send in your Chief an' surrender —
it's worse if you fights or you runs:
You may hide in the caves, they'll be only your graves,
but you can't get away from the guns!

Cramped in that Funnelled Hole by Wilfred Owen
Cramped in that funnelled hole, they watched the dawn
Open a jagged rim around; a yawn
Of death's jaws, which had all but swallowed them
Stuck in the bottom of his throat of phlegm.

They were in one of many mouths of Hell
Not seen of seers in visions, only felt
As teeth of traps; when bones and the dead are smelt
Under the mud where long ago they fell
Mixed with the sour sharp odour of the shell.

I love your whales, Boots! This guy and the Seamen Whales are both awesome. They really capture that giant blubbery creature feeling for me.

Re: 1 Samuel 17/Frankenstein



The classic story where David battles the giant Goliath, only in this case David is a Pucker, and Goliath is the original Frankenstein's monster, who is also a Pucker.

Fact: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein's monster was yellow. He was green in movies because it looked better on screen.

I kept redoing the tail. I left it wispy because, although not whale-accurate, it gives more of a sense of movement. I hear his teeth are not whale-accurate either.

"Moby-D.i.c.k" and "The Owl and the Pussycat."

Edit: the filter is going to be hilarious on this one. not Jane!


Adorable! The cross section of the whale with the mouth creeps me out a little bit, but lovvee the owl and pussycat and overall style!
