Here we go again…


I originally started 50 Baddies for a local exhibition, thinking that a modular print would be perfect for me – having a full time job meant I could fit one in here and there when I got the chance. Logic not being my strong point I didn’t really count on how long it would take to draw fifty of the buggers (months rather than weeks in the end!).


The last thing I wanted to do was more. 

But then, you know, I started thinking about goodies and making a little list and before you know it here I am again. I’m kicking off with Robocop, which takes me right back – one of my first jobs was drawing cutscene graphics for the computer game version of Robocop 3 when I was about 17. To this day I’ve never seen the film. I read the script and that was bad enough.

The Ipcress File also has a special place in my heart. Harry Palmer gets the girl by good cooking and sardonic one liners, giving hope to puny four-eyes like me the world over.


It’s the same drill. 50 film goodies. 3 at a time. At the end I’ll make 50 prints and there’ll be 2 things in the shop.

As with the baddies, please feel free to suggest. Without a suggestion, Ma Fratelli would have never made it into the baddies last time, and she ended up being my favourite.

  2. Do you think ? aah well i’ve thought of some more, Doc Emmett Brown, Rick Deckard, Chief Brody, Clark Griswold, Johnny 5 and Willow !


  3. Ooh – Brody’s a good ‘un. Or do I go for Quint? ‘Farewell and Adieu you fair Spanish ladies…’ Inigo Montoya or Andre the Giant? Decisions decisions…I would have to tear up my geek accreditation card if I didn’t include Ash. Hail to the King, baby.


  4. Oh Man – I wish I’d thought to do a warrior in the baddies. That Kiss make-up’s amazing. In fact I could have done Kiss – Gene Simmons in Runaways…Swan or whatsisname – Ajax.

  9. Holy Toledo. Thanks! There’s some nice ones there I’d not thought of (Hello Derek Flint) I’d love any excuse to include Harold or Maude, but I think it’s stretching the definition a wee bit! I also thought R2-D2 was the best goodie from the Star Wars films, in all six and the only one to come out of it with any dignity intact!
