I'm a Designer

I have dyslexia so forgive any spelling errors. Normally editors fix it for me. Writing is a great job for a dyslexic.

I want a lo-fi Blake's 7 re-boot

I'm such a massive nerd. So I made this...

Like all massive nerds I was pleased to hear that Blake's 7 was going to get a re-boot. Such a good job had been done on BattleStar Galactica the time was right.
So it didn't happen.

I still want my reboot though.

Back to the future 2 is set next year. I think Blade Runner is set 2017? Maybe? I think Clock Work Orange was set in the 80's or something. Though it's never said exactly when. When you watch that now it's obviously not the future. It looks and feels like a weird alternate present.

Why not do this with Blake's 7? Set it in a future that's never going to happen. We've gone off in a different direction now. These futures won't happen. Space 1999 didn't.

They're lost futures. The future of Alien won't happen, but look at this!


And now look at this! Click on the picture to see the excellent Formica Punk.

You can see in the pic there he's putting a tape into his phone so he can listen to music on it!!!!!

Let's do it! Let's make a lost future Blake's 7 that takes it's self way too seriously. (We could maybe tone down the Servalans dresses a bit.)  Keep the cool. Ditch the cheese. Have better effects.

More than any other comic it was the Freak Brothers that made me want to be a cartoonist.

A test of sorts

Just something I'm playing with.
It may be a thing.

Maria Miller

Maria Miller is the Culture Secretary. She's been slightly cheeky in accidentally claiming £45000 too much for her second home that's 50 minutes on the train from her first home.
She has said sorry though. So she only has to give back £5800.

She made £1000000 profit from the sale of the house in question.

A Really Big TV

Oliver was not well equipped for this...

What was wrong with these people?
How could they live like this?
Why didn't they care?

It was Oliver's work too.
The bullshit was unbelievable.
The MD sat up there in his ivory tower all day and was never seen.
Not until after six. Then he'd come out and walk about the offices.
Those who were seen to be there moved on. It was that simple.
So many tended to do pretty much nothing during the day and only
really start after 5:30. The work was never checked or judged.
You just had to be there.

When his company had been bought out Matt thought it was a good thing.
More security in a larger company.
But 18 months later they shut it down and laid everyone off.
Matt couldn't under stand it. That's not how you grow a company is it?
But they didn't want to grow the company. They wanted to shut down
the competition then keep doing exactly what they were doing with
the same staff, but charge a lot more.
