Commission: The Gloves Make The Man

Here we have a four-stage transformation sequence in which an unsuspecting young fighter finds himself in possession of some comically oversized boxing gloves, which turn out – lawks! – to be magical comically oversized boxing gloves. Our unwitting hero thus undergoes a somewhat startling metamorphosis into a pugilist of mammoth proportions, in a manner most unfriendly to the rest of his clothing. I think it's safe to say he's going to have to move into a different weight division.

All of the above was drawn with pencils and pens in the traditional scribbling-on-paper fashion, at the behest of kindly commissioner R T Rose, who is excellent. Working out the various stages of the transformation took some time, but I'm immensely pleased with how they turned out, especially since if you arrange them like a flipbook and hop between them at speed they look a bit like an animation. Hurrah!

Apart, ironically, from the very top of his head. Them's the breaks with unpredictable enchanted boxing gloves.

I'm sure it's not what he wants to hear but he looks very cuddly.

He'd probably be quite happy to hear that, in fact, but I imagine he has other things on his mind just at the moment...

It would probably help a bit, but he may still encounter difficulties when trying to get into his car to drive home later.
