Ship of Fools


Just in case I don't use any of those characters I posted about before (for an ongoing comic) here they all are in one picture.

Great picture, I love all the insane shit going on, puking, murder, singing, looks like a good time!

Its a shame I can't get to grips with blogger. I thought if you clicked on the pic you might get to a larger view. What am I doing wrong?
Anyway, there's a loss of detail here (especially as the original is UK A2 sized) that can be addressed in the Eaten by Ducks folder in the Junk file on my website: http://bonehousebooks.co.uk/junk.html

oh I see, when it appears in a new window I have to let the cursor hover on it until I can click the shield, then it gets bigger.

Hehe superb! Bosch is great, i was really obsessed with his paintings as a kid..

In the national gallery shop they have pretty cool models of some of his creatures, they're a bit too non-cheap for me but one day I might buy some! ^_^

Very cool homage. I'd like to see it colored too.

Jon Chandler said...

Cheers Cementi and Luke.
I'm going to go in the Gallery and check those models out. And yeah this pic looks like it is begging to be coloured. Anyone fancy giving it a go?

oh yeah I've seen those, how did I forget?
Badass but too creepy as well. I remember staring eternally at a tiny detail of a Bosch picture that was on the front of a book on Cannabalism that was in my house when I was a kid and probably still is. It made me feel sick/ fascinated.
