With Jason/McLovin away for the weekend I thought I would sneak a quick post in. Congratulations to Mark Oldfield for winning the competition. He has been very kind and sent me loads of choices to sketch and I am struggling to choose one. When it's finished and on it's way I will post it here.

Over the next week we will be changing the righthand navigation bar a little to accomodate a link to our facebook page (where you might see stuff that is not yet posted here - think confirming deceased). Also there will be a new competition link. OK maybe not new new more an old favourite - yep it's the return of the 'suggest something for me to paint ' competition (no Top Gun entries, please you'll only get Mclovin excited).

And now for sometning new..... a prelim commission sketch of Spy Kids mum in Sin City....

...... and a painting underway of some people from some film or other......

I recently received an email at work which went along the lines of "you've been invited by the girl who sits next to you at work to join Facebook - click here". So I did.

Now, I'm not sure what it's purpose is and I've only got 3 friends but I find myself checking it at least 3 or 4 times a day. Why, I'm not sure. Am I interested in adding friends - not really but I feel I should have more than 3.

Anyway, I've created a group and I've called it InvisibleIncDesign.

You can join this group if you like. It'll be quite nice for us to see who you people really are and you can then buddy up with other people who obviously have exquisite artistic preference.

Hopefully you 4 who I spoke to briefly about our Flickr page will join as you all sort of went, I've got a flickr and a facebook.

I'd like to see if we can get people from every continent on there too.

You will be able to post messages, and videos etc - well I'm sure you've all got a better idea of facebook than I have so click the link to join.

Yeah, so, London. Whilst its nice to visit the Capital of our great Country, it's also nice to get out of the place again - if you know what I mean. After 2 nights away from home I was so releived to arrive home on Sunday night to an empty house (she'd gone away to her brothers for the weekend with the kids) and turn on my PS3 and spend the next 5 hours playing Rainbow Six Vegas till 1.00am. Well happy!

Mind you, had I not gone to London, I woud have missed 5 pivotal moments. I like lager, it's one of my favourite fizzy drinks, but I'm a bit of a 'stick with what I know' type bloke. The 2 pubs I generally drink in belong to the same brewery so they might as well be the same pub. But it sells Carling. I like and drink it. Earls Court however serves Carlsberg Export. I've never drank it before. I've seen the adverts and they hate to see it leave and all that. As far as I'm concerned. They can keep the bloody stuff. It was rank. Needless to say, on Saturday we should have normally consumed 5 pints by the time we leave the show, but we only managed one! It was cack!!

Danny Dyer obviously didn't think so. When I nipped out for a cigarette at about 3.00 who did I see throwing up on the fllor right out the front of Earls Court stumbling into his Hummer. Thats right, Danny Dyer. Now, it might not have been the Carlsberg Export but then again, after tasting it (the carlsberg, not his vomit!), it probably was.

But then again, it could have been the incredibly hot curry sauce to accompany my fish and chips which just turned out to be a portion of curry (madras i suspect) which at first taste was quite nice, but after breaking out in a sweat after dipping 5 or 6 chips I decided it was time to leave it. Maybe I should have had mushy peas instead.

Equally though, the thing that set Danny Dyer off like that might have been the sight of the freshly shaven legs attached to a little short tartan miniskirt. I'm not saying the legs were truly disgusting, it was just that they were attached to a body which had a short cropped top on and perched on the shoulders was the head of a man. Yes, a transvestite trying to look sexy and female like, when actually just looked like a bloke in a miniskirt and cropped top. Fair play and all that, but maybe a little foundation and a shave wouldn't have gone amiss.

Now, Alan failed to point out what happened after he took the picture of me with Bumblebbe, probably because he'd walked off but I'm not gonna tell you just yet cos I'm waiting for a photograph to come back from Boots so I'll post it up later in the week.

Sizzle me schnizzle, boyyyyyyzzzz!

Funkmaster J in da house.

I see alan has put up his blog entry and said how dark the car park, sorry, i mean venue, was. He's not joking. It was a *&%@ hole.

I've got a few little bits to talk about as well like what happened after Alan took the photo of me and bumblebee, my Danny Dyer story, Miniskirt Man, curry sauce and 'Probably the worst lager in the world'. I'll have to write this up tomorrow as I've an important meeting with my Barman (who, incidentally is Peter Petrelli).

Oh yeah, the competition will be closing as soon as Alan sends me a new jpg.

EDIT: Now closed but you can still see the owners gallery.

For Information:-
How to make a Mickey Mouse
take one pint glass (cold)
Add in equal measures lager and bitter
Drink at great pace

Warning:- do not attempt to let bar staff pour using creamflow taps, remember to suggest that they put lager in first and remove nozzle on bitter pump and finally make sure you know your rights as in - "Sorry Sir, that drinks illegal I'm not allowed to serve it in here."

If you are unfortunate to be served by a newby to this glorious mixture make sure you stand well back and maintain a sympathetic look on your face when it all goes horribly wrong.

Just thought you might like an update of our London Film and Comic Convention experience...

Well all I can say is that it was the darkest, dingiest place you could ever have imagined. Upstairs, hidden away in the old Earl's Court, not the new clean venue of the past few years. Certainly not the sort of place you would imagine hosting the supposed foremost UK Film and Comic convention. Anyway enough of moaning (even though the light was so bad it changed the colour of all the prints - Hellboy seemed to be brown not red), we had a great time until I ate some dodgy chicken at the hotel, which slowed our chillaxing drinking a little.....

Okay so here's a picture of our stand, I know it looks light but that's the flash on the camera.

Managed to brave the crush of people trying to get near the Heroes people and got the cheerleaders signature. She's tiny. Oh and by the way if you haven't seen all of the series yet, sorry this is a spoiler........

This next pic perhaps demonstrates how dark the venue was (just look at the background).

Here's self styled Funkmaster J cuddling Autobot Bumblebee from Transformers or as sensible Al would say - "Jase!! It's a beat up, badly painted 70's Camaro not a Transformer, leave it alone!!!" Still I didn't want to shatter his dreams...

So finally
Weekend Props -
Being in London
Ibis hotel bar staff for managing to pour Mickey Mouse's
Meeting all the people who visited the stand and bought stuff
Laughing at people running to get signatures (it was like watching Intacto for real)
Subway for providing lunchtime food
Picking up the region one extended cut of Death Proof

Weekend Slops -
Being in London
The venue lighting (or lack of it)
Ibis hotel staff for trying to poison me to prevent me buying Mickey Mouses
Having to explain to the usual suspects that the canvases on the back of the stand are paintings
