Horror film-maker, Wes Craven, has died at the age of 76

www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-ca…

When I think of horror as a genre, Craven is one of those names that immediately springs to mind, which is a bit of a triumph as there are only really 3 of his movies that I really hold in high regard.
But what movies!
Nightmare on Elm Street is obviously one of them. Freddy is one of the all time great cinematic bogey men. I remember being at a party as a kid, the kind where your parents drag you to one of their friend’s places and which goes on into the late hours, so you’re told you have to sleep on the strange floor of a strange house? Anyway, the adults all sat down to watch all the Elm Street movies (there were only 3 at the time) back to back. All the kids got shooed off, put down to sleep in another room, but we heard the adults screaming at whatever they were watching. For years after, I really wanted to watch the movie. Oddly enough, I don’t remember it being disappointing when I finally did.
Scream followed the same horror/comedy formula as Elm Street, and is a wonderful time capsule of the 90s. I love the closing shot in it where the camera pans back to show the lonely looking house in the middle of rural California. For years I’ve been meaning to write something with such a setting.
Finally, Cursed; a somewhat forgotten werewolf movie from 2004, starring Christina Ricci and her massive forehead. I liked it because it didn’t have any of the bull-sh*t “tribal” tropes that have come to plague such movies. It was simply about the monsters and the curse in a modern, urban environment.

Woops. I might already be asking for more. It's the "II" I meant. Thanks for the correction.

Not a problem, though I believe Phil does have a time machine.  I think he's got some kind of rule about spoilers or something.  ;P

Here's a real life question for you.  What does your family think of your artwork, particularly the almost scantily clad boxum ladies that we love so much?  Do they feel disgusted, amused, or simply meh?

Seriously?!  That's brilliant man, you got a family that are either understanding, or simply don't give a toss.  That said, you have ever drawn comic about them, and give them the finished piece as a gift?

He sometimes draws cute bunnygirls for his grandfather. How awesome is that?

Hey, I've just been browsing Chloe for a while, and I noticed that you haven't drawn her with bed hair.  Just thought I let you know.

You know that storyline you did in your Sequential art strip a while back. About Pip Selling Scarlet? Well...I think the guy he sold her too came to life. Cause I was behind him in the Autograph line at Bronycon. Horse ears on his head, slumped back. Smelled like Cheese and ass. (to be fair though no one smells good at a convention after several lines.) I tell you this to warn you. 

YOUR CREATING LIFE!

That's not a warning, that's encouragement!
One days it's a weird guy, the next it's a honest to goodness d-cup bunny girl!

Ok, last bit of spammy fan art, I promise! Hahaha
Also, may I please either marry, become a maid servant to or at least touch the lovely tail of Miss Sinclair?

Hey Jack.  I don't know if you were already aware of this, but...

...Did you know that Jeremy Clarkson was a Video Games Journalist for the short time?
