Al Cook’s “Necropolis”: Please Give Blood.

Hi folks, this is the latest entry in my macabre Glaswegian comic-strip, Al Cook’s “Necropolis”.
It’s called “Please Give Blood” so please do!























As always, the main place to view Al Cook’s “Necropolis” in all of its complete and black biro penned, sinister hand-drawn wonder is HERE.

* Footnote:
I sent this “Please Give Blood” strip off to the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service asking them to get behind the comic etc… and they said:

Hi Al,
Many thanks for your enquiry.
I’m afraid this is something we will not be able to support.
Best regards,
Leigh.

That aside, please do give blood. It’s very very important and not painful at all.

Graham Humphreys: “Zombie Flesh Eaters” Artwork.

Never in a million years would I ever show you one of my illustrations before it was finished.
It’ll never happen.

Apart from spoiling the magic of my work a little, the process would expose me as the pretend artist I actually am! That said, I love to see and learn from the works in progress of other artists and illustrators and today I’d like to show you Graham Humphrey’s new artwork, start to finish, for the 1979 Italian classic, “Zombie Flesh Eaters“.

You’ve all seen “Zombie Flesh Eaters” right?
You all remember the underwater scene where a ZOMBIE FIGHTS A SHARK don’t you?
I found these images through looking about for information on the new Arrow Films DVD print of “Zombie Flesh Eaters” and aside from being a pretend artist in my spare time, I also occasionally steal articles from other sites. Not in attempt to be interesting or because I don’t have my own shit to say you understand, but because I find it very interesting and educational and I think that a lot of other people may feel the same way.

…Which is why I have shamelessly lifted the following images from a WONDERFUL place called Death Waltz Recording Company who, as far I understand it, release rare and out of print horror movie soundtracks on newly pressed vinyl and I really hope that they don’t mind my doing so because images like the following ones are sure to help all of you young wanna-be pretend artists and illustrators.

I wish I’d seen something like these when I was 10 years old instead of 30.
