Mrs. Browns Boys – Christmas Opening

The opening episode of series two aired on RTE Xmas night and then on the BBC on Stephen’s Day (Boxing Day). Animating the opening credits is a lot of fun and there are some added extras on the opening for series two. For example…the snowman in the background is actually Grandad!

Rons Smith Tribute

A blue pencil and partial inks rough.

Mark Howard aka The Legendary Shark is putting together a tribute book for comic book legend Ron Smith. Ron is in his 80’s and Mark figured it was about time to present him with a good fandom ‘thank you.’ Mark had previously compiled the ‘Carlos Ezquerra’ book.

I’m going to push for more people to contribute to this project on the 2000ad Podcast and on the 2000ad forums.

To me, Ron Smith was the definitive Judge Dredd artist in the 80’s. Most people pick Mcmahon or Bolland…but looking back, Ron was a genius. To me, he was the British ‘Jack Kirby’.
