I’ve been rewatching a load of X-files lately, a tv show that warped my mind when I first watched it as a teenager. It’s a bit surprising how well it holds up now, more than 15 years *GULP!* later, and even with the flaws and inconsistencies that shows with age (and watching long stretches of a storyline intended to be consumed in weekly doses) the series is as engaging and thrilling as back then.
I wanted to show a bit of appreciation with a little drawing of Mulder and Scully, and even if the colours took longer than intended, I kind of liked the result. Let’s call it a work in progress bever the less, I’d like to work a big ass X into the background
If time allows I’ll be drawing tributes to old favourites in the coming weeks. Hmm, did Ash have that chainsaw mounted on his left or right hand?
Oh yeah, and if anybody are interested, I do commissions too. This drawing is made in Manga Studio, so there’s no original, but I work analog as well. Mail me!

Matt Ryan Tobin @mattryantobin made this sweet tribute to one of the arguably most excellent, non-heinous, and very triumphant works in cinema history… -ness.
Matt works mostly in t-shirt prints and gig posters for metal bands like Cancer Bats, meaning he is not only a movie connoisseur, but a man of exquisite musical taste.
It’s way overdue that I start working on my fan art for Kim WAndersson’s Love Hurts website (book out in April!), and it seems something hatched in my head during today’s lunch break.
The hook ‘Love Hurts, but who’s crying’ has been sitting in the back of my head more or less since day one, but I didn’t really make the right connection until now.
Given my inclination to all things heavy and/or metal, it was obvious that the piece should pay tribute to Megadeth’s classic “Peace sells, but who’s buying?” cover, in picture as well as wording.
Preliminary sketches below. In the first I was just jotting the general setting down from memory, while the second is done after digging out the actual album for reference.
