Rick -The Young Ones by Nippip
Rick -The Young Ones
I am a dedicated fan of British comedy and the passing of Rik Mayall struck me hard. His characters are so shockingly deep and relatable and much of what makes shows like "Bottom" so re-watchable for me. The man was a miracle and I think its safe to say that he has changed my outlook on life. I know it's late to do a tribute, but months later and I still catch myself tearing up. I threw together this Rick cosplay for a school photo and thought I might upload a couple of pictures.
David Mitchell in nasty crayon by Nippip
David Mitchell in nasty crayon
I wanted to try my hand at crayons. I haven't used them since I was a kid, I just remember them being terrible, it was actually surprisingly fun. I drew David Mitchell because he tends to be brightly light and brightly dressed and he himself is bright and funny so I thought he would be a good motive to portray in bright, fun crayons. I must say I do like him a lot I love all the "Mitchell and Webb" projects and I also like him as a panelist, particularly on QI and WILTY.
Mark Gatiss Drawing by Nippip
Mark Gatiss Drawing
This man is a wonder whose nose is a manifestation of his magnificence. Amongst his numerous produce are shows such as Sherlock, Doctor Who and The League of Gentlemen, in all of which he both writes and acts. I just started reading his Lucifer Box novels starting with "The Vesuvius club" it is a Mark only creation and so far seems to accurately represent his persona. Stephen Fry described the book as, " The most delicious, depraved, inventive, macabre and hilarious literary debut I can think of... More, I want more!" That for me is Mark in a nutshell, he scares me with elegant humor and I like it. More, I want more.

The drawing is made with graphite pencils on fine paper, but the scale of the drawing is quite small, I'd say about 15x21 cm. The time spent is more or less the exact amount of time it takes to listen through all five books in The Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy series as read by Stephen Fry and Martin Freeman. I looked it up and that's apparently 27 hours and 42 minutes, that's the summer holidays for you. I didn't really plan on drawing him this thoroughly so the facial proportions are a bit wrong.

Love this choice! I hoped for an older, but still good looking bloke. And more importantly he is a good actor AND I already knew who he was! But I still had a emotional brake-down after he was announced, it hit me like a spear through the stomach that Matt Smith will see the end and it is for real, not just some night mare. Peter Capaldi is the doctor, but DOCTOR WHO? I'm looking forward to find out where he takes it.

PS. If the next one is not female and/or ginger something's going to die!

Ah you know, absent as usual. I have been buried in art history documentaries and a like. I've been on holiday around the country for most of the summer, I even went to a couple of concert with my mother.

Oh yes I found it mot amusing. I might mention then the band in question was Pearl Jam, whose music I have grown up with. It is however only recently that the meaning of the accrual lyrics has become apparent to me, ans a kid I didn't understand much, but liked it all the same. Music has never been my thing however I am trying to broaden my pallet and get a little knowledge on the matter in to the old onion. I must excuse the language, I stopped to write this in the middle of an episode of "Jeeves and Wooster" and that kind of thing tends to effect my language.
