May 1973

Another lady, imaginatively called May 1973.  She is named after the month she was vectored in. Another month, another t-shirt. With the year ’1973′ tagged on afterwards. 1973 is a special year, not just because I was born then!

Yes, this one has a song attached to it

There’s this kick ass song called STAR WAR by Supershit 666. It was also recorded by the Backyard Babies. The lyrics go something like this:

I don’t need no doctor
No one’s got the cure for me
Cause i’m a heartbreaker
And a soulshaker
Since 1973

Star war
So watcha waitin’ for?

Awesome rock anthem, great to jump around to.  I may tend to over-identify with it.

The drawing

I drew May 1973 in my sketchbook (I have a whole lot that never make it to vector stage). She was part of the plan to  keep working in the style of Doris and Angie.  She’s got a big heart and shiny blue hair.  The May 1973 design is on my t-shirt store here.  This one is for all the Queens of the May. If you know a special lady who was born in May 1973, or even 1973 (mint year that it was), this shirt is just the thing! Ahaha, blatant selling gimmick :)

Angie

You know that song “Angie” by the Rolling Stones? Yeah, this one. I love it. I guess it was only a matter of time until I named a lady after that song.
I usually sing it to guys named Andrew. Especially if they hate being called Andy. I’m good fun like that.

Angie was drafted up at the same time as Doris. Doris may be in the gutter, but Angie is staring at the stars. I put the two ladies together on the front of a hoody. They’re partners in crime.
The original quote came from Oscar Wilde’s “Lady Windermere’s Fan”;

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars

Obviously I fucked up the quoting verbatim bit and used ‘staring’ instead of ‘looking’. I’m an artist, I can be creative like that. Lol.

If you like Angie on her own, you can purchase the t-shirt here.

For you TJ sailors, the hoody is for sale here

Poster Ghouls

Poster Ghouls – chicks who are skulls with hair wot have flames and hearts and were built (for speed) to go on rock n’ roll posters.
I always thought my Deathpunk Ghoul looked a little lonely, so I drew some friends for her.

The first one is Tweeti Pai – a Maori transliteration of Sweetie Pie. She’s purple, she’s in love with the world and she’s not just wearing her heart on her sleeve. They’re in her hair, her eyes, or floating beside her.  She was a lot of fun to draw, after a caffeine fuelled weekend, I believe. I tried not to go toooo overboard on the skull detailing, because I thought she might look like she had stubble! (Sorry DPG, you’re still beautiful in my eyes). If you like the look of her shirt, you can buy one here.

Her friend is the Flame Ghoul. Yes, I did listen to Firewoman by The Cult rather a lot while I drew this. And the colours were definitely inspired by Flame Princess in Adventure Time. What would Flame Princess look like if she was a skull ghoul who listened to The Cult? Look no further. I gave her a Maori name too – Hana for Flame. You can find her here.
