This is the RU by Nick White, an illustrator I met at ELCAF 2014. Nick’s art is all really cool but also kinda creepy and funny too if ya get me.
So is his robot unicorn as you can see. It has a special moving, tentacle like horn, to pick stuff up, an y’know.. do cooking and other stuff. 
Nick has a great website which is here. He is also in a band called Owen & The Eyeballs, the Twitter page for it is here.
Thanks Nick!

On mah holiday I visited Angoulême, comics capital of France. Every february there is a massive comics festival in Angoulême which sounds amazing, but I’m never able to go because it’s during school time (once again you have foiled my plans you buffoons).

There’s also a famous comics museum in Angoulême, which I visited and it was aaaawesome. There was an exhibition of the comics ‘Metal Hurlant' and '(A Suivre)’, which was looking back through the history of the two comics in the 70s and 80s. I discovered some pretty great artists and graphic novels, which was kewl.

There are also lots of murals painted around the city featuring many BD characters, like the one pictured above.

Angoulême was great!

HEY HEY HEY FOLKS! IT’S ME AGAIN!

Huge apologies for not posting anything for ages, it’s just been really hectic around here and I’ve been on holiday and been doing homework and tests and just school stuff in general. But it feels good to be back… fo’ reals!

I also have a load of stuff to post that I have accumulated over this period, so look forward to that, I know I am!

Happy tumbling, Joe

Here’s the robot unicorn by Tom Gauld, who I met at ELCAF 2014 recently. Tom’s been on the infamous RU artist hit list right from the start, so this unicorn has been long-awaited.
Tom draws loads of robots and he did the illustrations in a version of the book The Iron Man and a book called The Gigantic Robot, so I knew his robot unicorn would be super cool!
Thanks Tom!
Here are some links to Tom’s website, his Twitter, his Tumblr and his Flickr.

Poor Bruce.
I don’t normally add captions or post anything that I haven’t in some way made or at least messed with (in the interests of satire etc etc) but I’m posting my fathers day card from my kid, because I think it’s excellent. His blog is http://robotunicornblog.tumblr.com . It’s better than mine.
Happy Fathers Day.

ELCAF is coming up in two days and I am mucho excited about it. It’s pretty much the best time of the year for getting RUs to add to the herd and it’s also a great comic event.

In preparation for it I have made some Robot Unicorn KitKats to give to artists and other friends of the blog. Delicious!
