CURRENT SOUNDTRACK: TV/MOVIE THEMES, Dido: Here with Me/Roswell (Roswell Chillin Mix)

BUBB

You'll have probably heard many good things about the lads at Blink Twice Studios (http://www.studioblinktwice.com/). If you haven't yet, you soon will. And the above piece of art will show you just one reason why. The first time I met the Brothers Etherington properly at London Winterfest back in 2004, I told Rob I wanted a piece of Lorenzos art. Really, really wanted. The kind of art you can stare into for hours, they are so densely detailed and lovingly drawn. There's a passion in their work that leaps off the page, a conviction, rare in comics. From a fellow artists perspective, I admired the craft. From an editors perspective, the care and attention. From a fans perspective, and yep, I am a fan as if you haven't already guessed, its just bloody good comics. And as versatile a universe as Malcolm Magic's is for other mediums, there's still magic just in black ink on a white page.

And now they've got page up on eBay (not the one shown above). No link to it, because I want it myself. Really, really want it.
