I really haven't been drawing much lately. In my defence, it's because I've passionately believed that everything I produce is rubbish and no-one cares, and also that I've been playing with broken glass. Because the only reason people don't wear rings made out of broken glass is because they've not thought of it, obviously, and not because it's an inherently stupid idea :D

Also, I've discovered that if I go out and play with my friends rather than sit at home and weep over my own shitty scrawlings and the hopelessness of my dreams, then I'm much happier!


So anyway, here's a load of drawings. They're pretty big this week, so be thou warned.

Okay, first up, here's some Real Work - the illustration for the review of The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scienists that I did for BadRep, which will be up soon.

Yeah, I have no idea either? Who knows! :D

I had more mask plans

Because bone werewolves with tusks and dreads are predictably My Kinda Thing.

LUTUR, okay, LUTUR IS AMAZING, and you know, SO IS BLOD because BLOD IS SMALL




And then I drew Dag as she looks most of the time because I realised that whenever I draw her, it's as fully humanoid and she almost never looks like that.

Check it: werewolves.

Then I drew sexy slug/snail people, because fuck the po-leese


you wish you had my brain

fuckin phwoar

tunnelling through that cucumber like a baws

anyway, so also I drew this because I'm a massive wanker

UGH THIS THING. So I suppose "Establishment" means "to build the mind" and "Tournament" means "to joust the mind"? THIS JUST IN: IT DOESN'T. Do thy homework.

/massive wanker

And then I drew a tarantula for a friend to get tattooed on herself because That's What I Do. ARACHNOPHOBES, CLOSE YOUR EYES!

you can open them again now

THE END. Now let us never speak of this again.

I tagged them as boys on Tumblr, but that's totally inaccurate due to mollusc hermaphroditism. MOLLUSC FROLICS

I would also be very in favour of the mask designs becoming reality. I like masks.

I particularly like the one where it is talking about cabbages and carrots.

The escargot one is funny too. That is a reference to something I think? Some film or program (or maybe even a real life documented thing that happened) about an artist who tended to paint prostitutes?

I was about to ask as well, where is that reference from? I've seen another mutation of it somewhere else and I really need to know the source now!

Plus, while molluscs are entirely not my kink, I still love the fact that there is now mollusc pinup art out there because, well, rule 34. It needed to exist. *nodnods*

the "draw me like one of your escargot" one is hilariously fantastic!

I laughed a lot while drawing it :D

PS. You still have my copy of Desolation Jones, I just remembered! Don't move house with it, it'll be another thing to carry!

i am looking at this, right, in a very public setting (literally hundreds of people walking past me and glancing at my computer) and i had to gnaw on my tongue to keep from exploding at the sexy slug people. lucian, you are amazing, please don't stop. <3

and blod OH JEEZY CREEZY why is he so cute hgfhgfhgfhgf can i please have a blod-kitten

i know you might have posted an actual* pronunciation for blod's name but i cannot find it! I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ HIS NAME ALOUD because otherwise my brain does this silly "ABLURBLURBLUR" noise whenever i try and i feel it's disrespectful to the wee thing or something.

*i saw those things from altaiir re: proper pronunciation, you know, i'm onto him

I am impressed at how sexy the sexy slug people are...

Also that is one serious tarantula, I am somewhat in awe at the range of your style :-).

bluebottle is also an etymology arsehole


thank you for eating the twit (I wish more people knew that the etymology of "govern[whatever]" is AWESOME, I mean not literally "awesome" but it comes from "gubernator" which means "navigator" and there's a whole "SHIP OF STATE" metaphor going on there), they will hopefully provide valuable dietary fibre and one of your five a day. :)
