|I NEED A HUSBAND - BRIGHTON STREET ART BY MINTY|
This piece of street art by Minty seen in Brighton made me laugh. Skeletor was always a bit camp, but I was probably too young to know what that even meant when He Man was on TV. The caption is "I need a husband", but for some reason I think it should really end with "like a hole in the head".

Who has not questioned the odd relationship between Tintin and Captain Haddock? Teenager gallivanting around the world with a perpetually irate drunken sailor. But blistering barnacles, as odd as it may be, it was also huge fun reading those adventures as a child.
Above is an A4 drawing of Captain Haddock, created using fine liner pen and Promarkers.
|TINTIN & SNOWY - BY GINGER NUT DESIGNS|
Ok, I am also a huge fan of Tintin and, according to some, I also look like Hergé's classic cartoon creation. I'm not so sure myself, but there is no smoke without fire, as they say. It is not the most politically correct cartoon series these days, and I cannot help but question the dubious relationship between Tintin and Captain Haddock. Oh to be an innocent child once again!
The A4 drawing above was created using fine liner pens and Promarkers.
|OBELIX - DRAWING BY GINGER NUT DESIGNS|
Carrying on with the Asterix and Friends theme, here is another A4 illustration inspired by the classic children's book series. Drawn with fine liner pens and coloured using Promarkers, this drawing shows Obelix's favourite things; his faithful companion Dogmatix, a menhir and a wild boar.
