I was very excited to get a tweet from one of my comedy heroes; Reece Shearsmith, in regard to a recent bit of fan art that I'd created of him. I hadn't tweeted it or sent it to him but he obviously got to see it somehow and very kindly took the time to tweet me the above message. Wotta gent! After I'd completed the original Reece sketch, I'd resolved to do a
complete 'League' piece at some point, with all three (visible) members -
but now I think I'll bring that project forward! I strongly recommend anybody (is there anybody?) who isn't familiar with his work to check out the genius comedy that is League of Gentlemen, Psychoville, and Inside No. 9 as well as his recent acting in The Widower. Special stuff.
Have been really enjoying the third series of Stewart Lee's comedy vehicle, so it was good fun to morph what has been called by The Times "the face of the decade". Mr Lee doesn't tickle the funny bone, rather he gives it a rude kicking and then glowers at it. Tried my best to get the caricature as spot on as his observations. Looking forward to a fourth series...
