I was going to use this opportunity of having a monthly rant about one or other of the things that either have or do annoy me with our hobby. I then decided to tone it down a bit and label it “Soap Box” or something similar, but again I had a re-think and decided that that was too restrictive, so I'll reserve my "Soap Box" posts when I'vev nothihng better to blog about.
I have done little in the way of progress in any of the many fields we need to be accomplished in. So, no new or finished buildings to report about; I’ve managed not to watch any of the back-log of films I have recorded; I can’t remember reading anything of note (but I did take a swift look at the ATZ shooting rules) and I still haven’t managed to become a photographic wiz-kid ! I have managed a few hours of painting figures though, both civilians and zombies, although these are a good way off being presentable.

So instead this week I bring you some “Dog Art”.
By way of explanation “Dog” is a friend of mine who got his nom-de-plume after the North East beverage that he drinks (Newcastle Brown Ale). I mentioned to him that I was producing a blog about my latest wargaming project on Zombies and wondered if he could produce some of his art for it, hence the familiar looking photograph heading the page !
The first picture that grabbed my attention from his Facebook albums was actually this one of a clown, in the thumbnail version of it I really did think it was a zombie, but as a clown it’s probably even more worthy of addition to this post.
When I asked him to produce some specific pictures for my blog, he asked what type I would like, cartoony, serious or other – I just went with the flow and told him to produce whatever he wanted, I like most of his Dog-Art, although some is a little eccentric. The captions under the photographs are all his own.
He does have a thing about sketching women with large assets, so I suppose it was a case of any excuse, as I'd given him
carte-blanche on the subject matter.

I do have a few more bits of his artwork, but I'm saving them for future post when I'm again short of material to write about and I'm not in the mood for a good rant ! So here's Chris as a Zombie in the Newcastle Zombie Walk 2011.
