Here's another crescent picture that I think came from a comic called Agent Silencio. What a fantastic piece of retro mystery. I could imagine something like this appearing in one of my comics. The symbolism is strong here!
"The word crescent is derived etymologically from the present participle of the Latin verb crescere 'to grow', thus meaning 'waxing' or 'increasing', and so was originally applied to the form of the waxing moon (luna crescens). The English word is now commonly used to refer to either the waxing or waning shape. In the technical language of blazoning used in heraldry, the word 'increscent' refers to a crescent shape with its horns to the left, and 'decrescent' refers to one with its horns to the right." ~ Wikipedia
Do you recognise these characters? I drew them with my finger on my mini ipad. Why on earth would I do that? Let me reveal that I've been storyboarding part three in the Bad Moon comic trilogy! Yes! I had time on my hands whilst I was chilling in Northumberland and it just sort of started to happen. Before I knew it I'd pretty much figured out most of the story, right down to the ending! Wow! I'm going to try and hold off doing the artwork until the story is in the bag, which is a different approach to how I created parts 1 and 2. Will it work? We'll just have to wait and see.
On the first two comics: They're still available FREE from pretty much everywhere. I'm encouraging anyone who'll listen to please give me a review. I'm hoping for polarised 5s or 1s else I'll view my efforts as a huge failure... and we wouldn't want that would we!
If you haven't already done so... go download the comics now and write a scathing review. And if you don't? Well maybe I won't finish the story! Ha! Damn you all!
BTW, it's been suggested that I fit some of my ipad art into the new comic. That might just be possible... hmmm... ;-)
One last picture before I move on to some photos. I call this one "Swimming in the North Sea". It was inspired by two young ladies I saw taking a dip off the beach near the stunning Bamburgh Castle.
Rather them than me.
I'm a man of simple tastes. This made me laugh. Look at the number plate of the waste van. Ha ha!
I'm running out of steam.
Okay, I'm going to end with some seaweed. Hopefully this post will get me back in the posting way. Fingers crossed! If you haven't been... get your arses to Northumberland. The only thing missing is 3G. ;-)
