Brendan: A sketch image for a pitch I concocted for DC Comics:

DELINQUENT JIMMY OLSEN was an idea for a three part miniseries that I planned to write and draw.

The Reverse-Flash, Professor Zoom, attempts to reverse-engineer a Bizarro back to human form, but instead unleashes a terrible reverse-Bizarro plague. Superman is imprisoned in a purple-kryptonite cage. As society crumbles, Superman's pal, Jimmy Olsen, finds that he and a few others are immune to the contagion. They are outlaws in a lawless, bizarro world. It is up to these delinquents to save our lives.


Coming soon.

They didn't go for it, but I think it would have made a good comic miniseries. Saturn Girl was in it too. And a new character, Dr. Zyxtiplytk, appears as well. Something a bit different...

Brendan: A polaroid picture from my art school days at Kingston Poly from over 30 years ago, when I was 18 doing my 'foundation art' course, before I went on to Chelsea to study painting. As you can see, I was producing dodgy early-Hockney "homages' at that time.
