So how the feck are you supposed to follow Fr. Jack anyways? Damn you Dec. Anyways continuing on in the Paddys day week (I drew this on Monday anticipating the mighty hangover that has hit today) we have Cuchulainn, an old mythical Irish figure. For those of you who dont know who he is the back story is that a giant hound crashed a dinner party in some old castle, a young kid named Setanta could have killed the beast with his hurley and sliothar, but he was on strike so the hound ate and killed everyone there..
I got pretty into the whole Irish myths there a few years back and decided to research it all only to find the stories we were taught as kids are a lot different when you read them now.
In other Micks news Im glad to announce that I will be your host for the first Eclectic Micks character jam where our weekly sketches will cross the streams to make one colaborative poster when finished, so expect to see different parts of that pop up over the coming weeks. Heres a little teaser for that anways so ye can speculate away as to what its gonna be

Full colours now? Jeez, people will be drawing complete pages next. Do you realise Patrick's day falls on Will Wednesday next year? Hope you have a good idea.

Ah man wheres the greyhound? Looks great though, it's like a toy/figurine thing

Nice one Will, I'm drawing Cú Chulainn at the moment for a book, I believe a little copy and pasting is in order.

I really like how he's kinda on his own little rocky planet just like the Little Prince.

Nice one, Will.

If you (and Lisa, and anyone else reading) are interested in the legends of Cú Chulainn, check out my webcomic adapation of The Cattle Raid of Cooley...

Looks good Will.

Keep pushing the other Micks by doing more finished colour works.
With the egos in this group it wont be long till everyone is doing complet full coloured pages.

A little green isn't going to cut it anymore Mooney.

Bunche said...

Who was the Irish mythic hero who was supposed to have multiple limbs and such? Was that an early version of Cú Chulainn or was that Brian Boru?

Dr O' ctopus
