I have a friend who is hugely into Team Fortress at the moment and that reminded me of all the weird videos that kept cropping up based on it a number of years ago. 'Yeah Toast!' is probably the one most people remember, but… I found this one recently and it just made me laugh so much (the end bit, for no good reason).

Honestly, these custom skins vids are so random, they make no sense! Ha ha!

Don’t be boring, be yourself, embrace an eccentric nature, what is normal anyway?

HNNNNNNNNNG HNNNNNNNNG HNNNNNNNNNNNNG!!!!!!!!!! ALLO! I HAVE FOUND SOMEONE ON THIS GOSH FORSAKEN PLACE WHO LOVES L'HOMME QUI RIT AS MUCH AS I DO! YOU HAVE MADE MY DAY BY EXISTING! THANK YOU! YOU HAVE A NICE DAY ALL RIGHT?! MY GOSH!

Ha ha! Like I said in a previous sketch post, The Man Who Laughs, aka. L’Homme… is a terribly under-appreciated work of Hugo. It grates on me that such a multifaceted story has been largely ignored and left in the shadow of other pieces such as Les Mis and Hunchback (as brilliant as they are). It needs more love!

And I apologise, for I haven’t quite produced anything on that theme for some time now. The last piece (this one: http://leopreston.deviantart.com/art/TMWLs-Tears-of-a-Clown-191887661) took a huge chunk of my life to finish, so I figured I deserved a break from Gwynplaine & Co for a while!

Hey! I thought I just go ahead. How about Hellboy with Liz Sherman? I bet they rock in your style! Or something from TV shows? NBC's Hannibal for example or Eva Green as Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful? :)

By process of elimination (because Hellboy and Penny Dreadful are not my current cup of tea!)

Thank you for the suggestions! :-)

re: sketch suggestions! I adore your Man Who Laughs artwork. Perhaps we can see some more of those?

Firstly, I’m so happy to hear that. The Man Who Laughs often feels like such an under-appreciated work and to hear that someone likes the art I’ve produced based on it is wonderful. Thank you! :-)

Secondly, here’s Gwynplaine carrying Dea through the snowstorm.

From the newer album Father of Invention… bloomin’ brilliant. :D

I recently downloaded Professor Elemental’s album Father of Invention and was reminded of this old time favourite.

It still sums up Steampunk pretty well!

So many kind people on here…

It’s overwhelming! :-)

the-guy-who-laughs and alvadee, yours are done but not dusted.

chaos-alpaca aaah! To be honest, I’ve forgotten about my birthday already. It feels like it was eons ago (mainly because work took over). How bad is that? It was only last month! Time is becoming unkind.

To those awaiting sketches…

I am so sorry for the delay. In my defence, I’ve been working my bum off over the last few weeks doing a lot of overtime (a heck of a lot!), as several deadlines were brought forward shortly after I did the draw and I wasn’t expecting it. The next two weeks are going to be tough going too, but thankfully there’s light at the end of the tunnel now (after that time I’ll be able to finally take a breath!)

I guess what I’m really trying to say is that I apologise for my shortfalls, but that I never forget what I owe people and I will post the remaining sketches in dribs and drabs.

I hope this is ok! Tea only takes me so far with this work schedule…
