Here’s a comic I drew back in 2011 (and the front cover I made in 2012) about Ritchie Blackmore’s relationships with his various singers over the years, called “Ritchie’s Quest”.
I saw the first character design sheet I did (the only one I put up on the internet because it was the only one I bothered to colour in) make its rounds on the internet, and people had photoshopped out my writing and put their own silly logos in. I was both shocked and appalled, haha. But that’s the way it goes, and a lot of people knew I wrote and drew this anyway.
Obviously this comic was meant to be lighthearted and silly, something for my fellow Purple/Rainbow fans to have a giggle at - but some Blackmore’s Night fans still took offence. Just because I can’t stand them doesn’t mean you don’t have to get thine knickers in a twisteth. :P
Various shots of the Deep Purple Converse All Stars I customised for myself. Featuring In Rock, Burn, Stormbringer and Perfect Strangers. I’m waiting for purple shoelaces to arrive in the post, so these dark pink ones are filling in for now.
An Adventure Time doodle for my old chum tippetarius . I felt it was necessary to put him in his Peter Pan costume.
Very nearly done making my Deep Purple shoes. Stormbringer on this side! Dark cloud gathering breaking the day!
Continuing my Deep Purple Converse. Had to throw in a spot of Burn, my favourite album of theirs.
My Dad bought me some white Converse for my birthday back in December because he knows I like scribbling over my clothes. However, because they’re rather pricey shoes I didn’t quite know what to do with them in case I accidentally destroyed them. So after several months, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ll just draw lots of Deep Purple stuff on them. I’ll post proper photos once they’re finished.
My 6 year old stepdaughter drew Jake and Finn from Adventure Time to show me. I’m so proud. :’)
I just wanted to say your illustrations are amazing :]
Thank you, much appreciated! :)
My stepdaughter and I watch a lot of Adventure Time (I had no-one else to watch it with so I forced it upon her and she’s addicted now, haha) so I did a quick ProMarker doodle of us in the style of the show. Silly really.
