BLACKGUARD no.3



In 2007 Stratu, the editor of Blackguard asked me to do a colour cover for his up coming comic magazine ‘Blackguard no.3: the Fleetwood Mac tribute issue’. I said ok, but I stipulated that I wanted to draw exclusively in Photoshop. He said fine and sent me down about 50 images of Stevie Nicks as he wanted a cover of her dancing around in a cheese cloth dress.

It took me one year to complete, and meanwhile all those Sydney cartoonists were doing strips about Mick Fleetwood’s drum patterns & John McVie’s bass playing. Unfortunately Stratu didn’t my radical colour schemes & thought I was insulting the great Ms Nicks singing and body movements (in a static image I might add!), then wanted me to start from scratch.

But I didn’t have time, so I did a quick watercolour rough celebrating the time Lindsey Buckingham disguised himself as a mugger to rob some of his highly paid songwriters for cocaine money. Unfortunately the gun was loaded and he murdered the two men who wrote ‘Tusk’. But Buckingham was found surprisingly ‘innocent’. Apparently the judge was a huge Christy McVie fan and a lover of the song ‘Don’t stop (thinking about tomorrow) ‘.

Mr. Stratu had no choice but to use this cover as he knew my product would ‘sell’ units but the cover did not enforce the theme (in his mind) of the great Fleetwood Mac. It was easier to scrap the strips & get the cartoonists to cover the broad theme of ‘crime’ instead.

the paperwork

Premise

A dog is on a desert island, it digs a hole & the island sinks.

Synopsis

A dog is on a small desert island. He thinks about how hungry he is. He thinks about a bone that he has buried on the island. He digs into the ground to find the bone. The island springs a leak. The island begins to sink. The dog & island sink under the ocean.

Treatment

It is a hot day represented by a burning sun. We pan down to a dog on a small desert island with one palm tree on a flat ocean. The dog is panting & holding his gurgling stomach. He starts to think and a bone appears within a thought balloon. This dissolves to show a silhouette of the island. Within this silhouette there is a cutaway showing a hole with a bone in it.

The dog grabs a shovel & begins to dig, slowly at first. This dissolves to show the dog digging faster as the hole becomes deeper & larger. The dog hits something within the hole that makes a large sound. He raises the shovel in a mighty effort to break the ground. The shovel hits the dirt & a gusher of sea water springs from the ground.

The dog is now out of the hole, looking upward at the gushing water. The island begins to sink slowly. The dog turns to the camera as the island keeps sinking. The dog waves bye-bye as he & the island disappear from the surface. Bubbles appear on the oceans surface & pop.
