THE WAR OF THE WORLDS

What if Michael J. Dowswell illustrated H.G.Well's War of the Worlds? I do love War of the Worlds, I don't think my wife does but anyway...my dad and I always loved this story, it is quite dark though. They say its the first alien invasion story, I don't know if that is true or not, but yeah...alien invasion stories have always been interesting to me...I spose its just mens fascination with war and the history of war.

REDDIT

Reddit is a fascinating and bizarre place...not for the faint hearted...you will also require 1. A ton of patience if you want to be a video poster on there 2. you will also have to be quite thick skinned...they are going to say some pretty unpleasant and honest things about your video.

BLINK OF AN EYE | Crashing Star Wars Ships #03





I don't want to start off on a downer with this...because this is fun stuff...it's a lot of fun crashing these models. Its very unpredictable what will happen, for example, you might have noticed at seventeen seconds in there is a fly that I didn't even know was there, and looks like it may have died. Here's the thing, the set in this video is quite old now, I've done a lot more work on it and we are looking at a far more detailed look that you will see in upcoming videos. Its going to be very special and I thank you for taking the time to have a look at it.

Crashing Star Wars Ships #02





It's starting to look a lot better, I was beginning to wonder if it ever would...but, I'm happy with how I got the sky and land to match.

I don't know what the guys will think about this...they have not said anything yet. Its not really in keeping with the style of their show...but I enjoyed making it and maybe it will just become a bit of fan art for them. I have skills in art....I am competent...I know what I'm doing and it feels good to be good at something. I was away from all things art for two years being (a lot of the time) incompetent in a job that brought cash in.

MY DR WHO STORY

Everybody has a story of when and how they were first introduced or stumbled across the British science fiction television show Doctor Who...

....of course, memory is a odd thing....it's organic...and for me it’s a tad fuzzy...but, in among the fuzziness there are also very clear memories that jump out...for example one of the very first memories was in the late 80's or early 90s....I found myself in front of The Sea Devils....I was young and I remember really clearly certain things about it...like Roger Delgado's face and onscreen presence...

...and equally to this, John Pertwee's face and onscreen presence...they were both capable of being smiley and friendly looking and then switching to serious and intimidating...they were strange if you were a kid to watch.......but there was this sort of cheekyness to them too....I remember being captivated by both of them....they had strong eyes....I also remember loving the cliffhangers for Sea Devils...and having to wait a whole week to see the next part....that is how it was being broadcast even though they were repeats.

That whole thing of cliffhangers is gone from modern Who and I feel it was part of what made Doctor Who.....but anyway!
