It's all about proportions...

I've been playing around with proportions.. thinking ahead to when I do my Two Templars book that'll follow Strange Times. I want to have a different look and feel to the characters, but also to bring across the kind of cartoony feel that I've now got to grips with. At the moment I'm playing with some recognizable (hopefully) characters, but soon I'll start to define the look of the Templars.

Solomon Kane had the feeling he was being watched...

I watched the Solomon Kane movie and it was... OK.

Again they failed to capture the magic of Robert E Howard's stories and instead went for an adventure film that is probably a safer bet financially that trying to aim for something different. Sad really as they could turn out something memorable, and generate some real buzz if they took a few more risks. I wanted a horror story with a central hero and got Indiana Jones in olden times. What this film has successfully done though is lower my expectations for the Conan film that's in the making.

It was the 22nd June and Norman's internet purchase wasn't all he'd hoped for...

... he'd wanted 'Three Lions' on his shirt and not 'Three lines'. Still, in a couple of days it'd turn out to be a wise purchase.

'Norman' has been created by Dave Hughes and you can read a load of gags about him over on Dave's blog (follow the link on the right), They always make me chuckle so I decided to vent my frustration at England's World Cup performance through Norman.
