here's something that I think is fun...just found it while trawling my archives...it's a magazine illustration I did about five years back. I think it's a pretty neat little piece of work. It also covers my entire knowledge of Information Technology.

Not really that accurate. Where exactly is the area where me and Roscoe are hiding out anyways:)

Thanks! I hadn't looked at this piece in a couple of years, and I was quite impressed with myself! :D

I press a key and little men get to work in the bowels of my PC!

Worrying if they're reduced like in Fantastic Voyage, and they suddenly grow back to normal size just as you're working on something. That would ruin everyone's day!

Could get bloody too!

I'll have to see if I can find the installment of my comedy strip, Young Doctors in Space, in which this unpleasant occurence takes place.

Where's the Hamster Wheel? All good drive systems need a Hamster Wheel.

Yes! A hamster wheel and a mouse mat...that's what computers have in common with rodent gymnasiums.

Remids me of a couple of old comic favourites.

The Numbskulls (from Topper or Beezer)

and

Ma Kelly's Telly (from Sparky)

I remember The Numbskulls, because we had the Beezer until around the mid-sixties...but a rip-off, which was actually much funnier, was 'The Nervs', which appeared in 'Smash' in the late sixties. Both these strips were probably in the back of my mind when I was drawing this...

Don't take off the back of the monitor, though, or all those little people will get away!
