Today’s Art (16th May 2017)

Woo hoo! I am very proud to present the fourth comic in “Damania Relocated” – a new sci-fi/comedy webcomic mini series about travelling back in time to 1990s America. This mini series is also in the tradition of my “Time Travel Trilogy” that can be read here, here and here.

Links to lots more comics featuring these characters can be found on this page.

Yes, I couldn’t resist taking a brief diversion from the main plot to make a comic about 1990s American punk music. No prizes for guessing which awesome 90s punk band appears in the first panel(hint: it isn’t Nirvana!). And, yes, Roz has a history of confusing punk and grunge music.

First of all, there’s actually an alternative version of today’s digitally-edited painting too, since I couldn’t decide which colour scheme I preferred (the original will be at the bottom of this post, but the alternative version can be seen by clicking the link above).

Anyway, today’s painting is a gothic punk painting that was inspired by, amongst other things, a song called “Last Train” By Ghost Dance, a band called The Birthday Massacre, ‘Tank Girl’ comics and an old computer game called “The Longest Journey”.

Well, here’s the next digitally-edited painting in my “Awesome Stuff/ 1990s Stuff” art series. I wasn’t feeling as inspired as I’d hoped with this painting (and I’m not sure how much longer this series will go on for), but I thought that I should make a painting about the many awesome punk bands from California that were at their most popular in the 1990s. Yes, in the 1990s, there were actual punk bands (eg: The Offspring, Bad Religion etc..), in the charts – rather than just generic pop music.

Today’s Art (4th November 2016)

Well, today’s painting was actually slightly more inspired than I expected. Basically, I was listening to 1990s American punk music and surfing the internet, when I happened to find an article on BBC News about how skateboarding was actually illegal in Norway (of all places) during the 1980s. Although I’ve never really been that interested in skateboarding, doing it somewhere where it’s actually a crime just seemed like the most punk thing in the world. So, I decided to make this digitally-edited punk-themed silhouette painting.

Woo hoo! My long-running “Damania” webcomic series has reappeared for another mini series 🙂 You can catch up on the previous mini series here, here, here, here and here.

Yes, I didn’t even think it possible, but Derek’s visit to a punk club was even more disasterous than his visit to a goth club. And, yes, Derek is either the best troll or the worst punk in the history of humanity.

A few notes for my American readers: “voting Tory” is the British equivalent to “voting Republican”. Likewise, from the few times I’ve listened to it, BBC Radio One plays pretty much nothing but pop music.

(Apologies about the silly censorship in the last panel too. This is mainly because I’m never quite sure what I can and can’t say on this blog. And, well, this line of dialogue just seemed too in-character for Rox to replace with alternative dialogue without ruining the final panel. Hence the censorship.)

Well, I was feeling very slightly uninspired, so I just started sketching randomly and I soon realised that I was drawing a woman riding a bicycle. Although I’m terrible at drawing bicycles, I kept drawing and soon began to think that this would turn into a 1980s punk-style picture. However, the final painting (which required lots of digital editing after I scanned it) ended up having more of a 1990s look to it.
