My homage to Banal Pig Comics

Steve Tillotson is a talented independent cartoonist from Leeds (the city where I live), and his series Banal Pig Comics is absolutely awesome, full of funny characters such as Banal Pig itself, Incompetent Shark, Fez Man, Cat Dad, Feeder & Wife etc.

His blog http://www.banalpig.com/blog celebrated its 6th birthday on the 29th of June 2012, and for this occasion Steve opened a competition where the contributors are invited to submit their own personal interpretations of his characters (the deadline is tomorrow!)... so I decided to do something with Incompetent Shark - an unlucky office worker shark with a miserable life and self-esteem problems - in a kind-of mashup with one of my favourite cult movies, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

  1. Ho visto & retweetato. E tifo per te, ovviamente. :)

    P.S. Banal pig in italiano è ancora più ganzo, perché fa la rima... che spettacolo! :D

    1. grazie per il retrweet! poi anche se non vinco va bene lo stesso, sono già contento di aver provato a disegnare, col consenso dell'autore, un personaggio che mi piace (le strisce originali si trovano qui: http://www.banalpig.com/funnies/?cat=1&paged=5)

      PS: "Maiale Banale", giuro che ci ho messo qualche secondo prima di arrivarci... sono messo proprio male :D
