Kate Beaton's Wolverine/Hagrid

Since I haven't updated in ages here's a version of Wolverine (I didn't draw but) I saw at Hark! A Vagrant - Kate Beaton's very hilarious comic site, you should check it out.

08. The Ricky Gervais Show

In the style of The Ricky Gervais Show animated HBO series on Channel 4 which I was just watching and thought it might be amusing to draw the round-headed buffoon, Karl Pilkington, as Wolverine himself, and that made me wonder what he might think about the character, which led to this fictional quote.

07. (Heroes in Hats)

I return for 2011 with a Wolverine in the style I've used for my series of images "Twenty Five to 25" that I worked on for the twenty five days leading up to my birthday on 19th February.

06. Vampire (Post-Halloween)

A different costume for Wolverine, he looks a bit grumpy - maybe he didn't get too much candy when he was trick-or-treating with it on. Clearly he was jumping on the vampire bandwagon that's gripped much of television and film but maybe he was in a werewolf-loving neighbourhood.

Not paying homage to anyone this time, just using the same style as the Maurice Sendak one, next time it'll be a different style (either my own or someone else).

05. Maurice Sendak

For Halloween, Wolverine is wearing a costume ready for some trick-or-treating with the rest of the X-Men (possibly not his idea, but perhaps a beer bribe persuaded him or Prof. X just tweaked his mind a little, for fun).

This time I've not gone in the style of Maurice Sendak, but was inspired by his book Where The Wild Things Are and Max's wolf costume as worn in the story (it was also what I based my actual Halloween costume, in 2009).

04. Katamari

In the style of Namco's Katamari games - a crazy Japanese creation that has appeared on PS2, PSP, PS3 and Xbox360.

They star only a few main characters; the Prince, a tiny, wide-headed boy dressed in green and purple, and his father, the King of All Cosmos, who is rather accident prone - in the first game he drunkenly destroys all of the stars and the Moon.
The gameplay involves controlling the Prince as he pushes the titular Katamari (a ball that can pick up anything you roll it into) around various locations, to rebuild the night sky and in later adventures to fulfill the demands of his hard-to-please father, and even his robot-clone.
There are many cousins of the Prince to be found who all look a little odd, with cone-heads and banana-shape bodies, so this Wolverine wouldn't look too out of place amongst them all.

03. Gemma Correll

In the style of Gemma Correll - a fellow graduate of NSAD and a successful (pug-obsessed) illustrator, she has documented her daily fashion choices in a series of self-portraits and sells her cute work; including t-shirts, prints and zines, in a range of shops across the country.
