Deciduous Tribute

By saw and plane…

Leroy Mize, 73, of Oskaloosa, crafted a 1965 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle out of oak and walnut. Spending over 1,000 hours cutting and piecing together the wooden Bonneville, it is an exact replica of his actual racing motorcycle.

Taggart!

Banned! Before 2000AD there was Action comic which first came out in early 1976. Due to the grisly nature of the storylines and illustration it was receiving bad press by late ’77. By that time Judge Dredd and his future brutal police state had become more popular and a dystopian hooligan theme was fading away. Pat Mills and John Wagner cut their teeth on this and the Mary Whitehouse PC crowd. Death Game 1999 – which later became a tamed down Spinball was rugby on bikes ridden by hardened criminals…

Contrast

Wall Art | this would make a nice graphic for a cool warehouse apartment wall. High ceilings and brickwork with concrete floors. Indeed you could probably roll the Bonnie into the flat up on the freight elevator..

Vroom…

Old Sketch | probably doodled in the early eighties. I dug our this dirt bike drawing from a pile of papers I brought back from the UK on our last trip. I think I copied out of the Radio Times for the programme listing of Kick Start which I used to love watching.

Keep Left signs

“What are they in it for, these old hoodlums, these layabouts in lace?”

Just one of countless laughs from Python Terry Jones who passed away today. Along with Chapman, Cleese, Gilliam, Idle and Palin; the absurdist British humor was infectious.

Pension day’s the worst – they go mad. As soon as they get their hands on their money they blow it all on milk, bread, tea, tin of meat for the cat.

The Law

Let’s Roll! More future cop adventures. This time drawn in the impeccable line work of artist Brian Bolland. Mark 1 Lawmasters aimed directly for the viewer. Blocks loom under a moody sky in the background.

Lawman

First Spread | Prog 2 March 5 1977. This is when Judge Dredd burst out of the page on his Lawmaster. Fine illustration by the unmatchable Carlos Ezquerra, who created the original look of the Judge’s, though the remainder of the strips pages were drawn by Mick McMahon who was to further refine the Dredd look over the following couple of years.
