a couple of years ago i was approached by a publishing company, they said they wanted to publish a book and i could be the author blah blah blah , there was a fixed fee and no royalties, the money they were offering was "just" considering the work involved, they then asked me would i be so kind as to furnish them with a ton of ideas in a virtually finished format. for a much smaller fee.

the deal wasn't a deal at all these guys already had a publication in the works and they were fishing for ideas to fill it, the book was published shortly after, never bothered to find out if it was any good or not.

a small clue to the content with my last uploads 

all the best folks :)

thank you all for all the kind comments, i am quite taken aback by the sheer volume of interest stirred up.

oh and i just had an email from dev art saying they wont sell prints, because of copyright violation, booooo !

53,579 views on one picture, oh my, it seems r2 has become a bit of an internet celebrity, people keep emailing saying its popped up all over the place, its all the rage in Russia now apparently.
still not sold him though despite me being totally broke, a few offers but none i would be willing to accept.
the way i look at it if i cant sell for the same amount of money i could earn driving a van for the same amount of time, then why should i sell at all.

Ok, so here is the latest pic of the d2 project, ive had some fantastic feedback so far so thanks for all the nice comments, but the question remains what the hell am i going to do with it once its finished.
i could stick it up on ebay and sell it to the highest bidder but thats realy not my style.
would rather it go to someone with a genuine love for this sort of thing not someone with deep pockets who would buy it on a whim.
there has been talk of an online raffle over at my regular haunt b3ta.com, i would like to raise enough to cover my time spent making it and my materials and a few quid to fund the next project, once that figure has been reached a percentage of the profit would go to charity.
just an idea at the moment i can see this being a bit of a pain to set up, but we'l see how things go.

i made another film based around the music and opening credits of classic seventies sci fi series UFO,
this will mean nothing to some of the younger folks, but let me tell you at the time this was shocking stuff alien abductions murder stealing of body parts drugs and the like,
my film is a gentle piss-take anyway and i think its fun even if your not familiar with the original.
