So I was “kraken” on with Banal Pig 5 when i had the idea to do a colouring book pastiche thing, featuring the characters from my sporadic “space wars” series. Here’s a catchup on what i’ve done so far:
so the book will feature all these characters plus a few new ones (including mechagoliath in the top pic, which eagle-eyed pig lovers may have spotted bears more than a passing resemblance to Tinker from BP Showcase), all involved in ferocious battles that never really get anywhere, plus a behind the scenes look at their home planets and lifestyles away from the horrors of war (it will also probably feature the word AIEEE! on every page). it’s inspired by ropey colouring books of the 80’s with pointless narratives and dodgy drawings, like this one:
