I joined the mighty Todger on rhythm guitar about two years ago. Since then we have been playing in every toilet in London, perfecting our set for our new album: Last Of The Juggernauts, available now! Thanks to Mo Panella, and “Smokey Joe” Suarez, we got a really ace sounding record. To complement the music, I wanted something equally
childish rocking, and so I set about making a custom devil truck, complete with succubi and zombies. I’m going to write a little more about that in a bigger blog post soon. Here’s the artwork:
The album is done, I’m frantically throwing artwork together, and this is where we are launching it. Facebook event is here.
After wrestling with spreadshirt, and remembering how stingy they are with vector uploads, I have gone for a simple shop on Redbubble, which has a nice community feel. The t-shirts are a bit pricey, and I will continue towards the “Fucking Cultists” thing, but for now I thought I’d wack something up…
New t-shirt for those Thumpermonkey fellows. Features a progress bar man<->pig heart synchronisation and a number of some secret significance… It can be purchased by clicking here.
Michael Woodman and Ian Baigent have successfully made a short psychological horror film, with the assistance of BRAG Productions, called Get Well Soon. With a bit of luck, it may appear in some festivals this year.
I produced some posters for it, which I greatly hope to see in the foyer of a London cinema soon…
I played a great abstract board game recently, Vector, which is unfortunately long out of print. Partly out of compulsion, and partly because it made a great home-made gift for my parents and parents-in-law, I put together my own version of the game for printing.
The game itself is Poker bluffing meets chess row/column pressurisation, but in two partnerships. Inspires a lot of “so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me” type double-think as you try and predict what wickedness your opponents are trying to trick you to walk into. Brain-melting and very fun.
I made a full colour board, a set of full colour cards to be printed from ArtsCow, a rulebook and scoresheets. Download them here:
- Vector board (PDF/ZIP, 7 MB)
- Vector cards (JPEG/ZIP, 13 MB)
- Vector rules (DOC, 36 KB)
- Vector scoresheet (XLS, 33 KB)
Or download everything as a single ZIP file (21 MB).
UPDATE (July 2012)
I have updated the cards, with some input from Stephen Taverner. Now we have movement cards with -1 on, for a variant where you can go backwards! You might remove the 0 or 3 in this variant.
Also included are “miss a turn” and “1st player markers” (mostly to use up the spare cards in the deck, bringing it to 54). Plus there are provided four tinted backs so the four players card sets can be distinguished, and I’ve added a nice chunky white border to improve the overall look when cut.
I’m imagining that the two special cards would use the original “black” card back, and all the others would be of one player colour or another.
