Christmas Eve on the 2000AD forum advent calendar is a free-for-all and Pete “20000AD Covers Uncovered” Wells has been contacting droids old and new (and probably some other pros too) and seeing if they’d like to contribute. Over to you Mr Wells:
Well, yet another amazing year where people’s creativity has just blown me away! Some excellent, excellent stuff here, LOTS of it prog-worthy.
Christmas Eve is Free-for-all and Pro say, so if you didn’t get a chance to submit something earlier, today’s the day!
Riiiiight, onto the Pro’s who, I have to say, have been beyond fantastic this year. When I wrote to them I asked for, quote, “a festive sketch.” Some of the artwork (and some of the names!) you’re about to see is going to blow your minds!
I’ll do them alphabetically (and one at a time ‘cos the board is having a wobbly!) as I think it’s the only fair way. I’d like to say to the pro’s a MASSIVE thank you and Merry Christmas from all on the board, we realise we’re asking you to work for nowt so it really is appreciated!
Here we go then, up first is Alex Ronald who based this beautiful picture of Torquemada on his mother-in-law - a bit harsh I feel, even Torquemada had good days…
We’ll run these over onto Christmas Day, so if you are too full of turkey to do anything else there will be festive thrills on here.
edit: Tumblr doesn’t seem to want to allow me to queue more than a couple of posts for Christmas Day (as it stands it skips from early Sunday to early Monday missing about 23 hours out, most of being Christmas Day - clearly Tumblr telling this droid to take time off), so I’m bumping up the post rate and we’ll see what happens.
