Rhys Darby, Jermaine Clement and Brett mcKenzie

Rhys Darby's birthday the other day apparently. Went to see a gig of his about a year or so ago and hurled this on stage at him.

Whilst I'm on about Kiwi comedians here's some old sketches I did of Jermaine Clement and Brett McKenzie, the colour one is a work in progress.

Next is a cover for Doug's comic fantasy novel, which can be found here:


Hopefully they'll be many more collaboration with Dr. Van Belle, starting today, go get 'em chief!

And a cheeky back cover:
