CHRIS WESTON - pencil art
Chris Weston is a direct descendant of the Julio-Claudian imperial dynasty which ruled Rome and much of Europe during the years 60 BC to AD 54. His ancestors include the corrupt pederast Tiberius, the insane Caligula and crafty, limping Claudius but in spite of his impressive lineage, Chris still can’t get any respect at the local all-night garage and has been forced to sell the crazy drawings he can't stop doing in order to make an honest buck.
Weston has worked with many of the comic book medium’s best writers and his impressive CV includes CANON FODDER and THE AUTHORITY with Mark Millar, MINISTRY OF SPACE with Warren Ellis, Grant Morrison’s THE INVISIBLES and JOHANN’S TIGER and ENEMY ACE: FIRE IN HEAVEN, both with Garth Ennis. In addition Weston, has drawn superheroes, horror comics, science fiction and crime. the filth is his first foray into sleazy meta-pornography.
Fans who have only seen him drawing biplanes and Nazi officers are about to experience Weston’s diseased surrealism, raw, howling and unleashed. He lives in England and likes to relax by hunting ignorant unicorns with a baseball bat in each hand. It is said that Weston’s shining legacy of heroism will very probably endure until even the stars are dust.
Chris Weston has a fully functioning penis and a currently pregnant wife to prove it. What else do you need to know? Virile AND talented, Weston never fails to deliver the goods.
GARY ERSKINE - ink finish
Gary Erskine entered the world as a small and unpromising clay statuette but the sexy Greek Goddess Aphrodite bestowed upon him the gift of Life itself upon rude matter, allowing Erskine to stretch, move and grow tall and straight into the proud comic-slinging man he is today.
Gary is a talented pencil artist in his own right and his impressive resume winds all the way back into the poisonous Jurassic mists of the 80s and includes THE AUTHORITY with Mark Millar, CITY OF SILENCE with Warren Ellis...mumble mumble...usual list of names...mumble...
Erskine has a galactic cluster in the contellation Pisces named after him. Erskine NGC1110 - a barred spiral Seyfert galaxy with a luminosity of 109LS can be seen with a naked friend on very clear nights. This fine celestial gem bears all the hallmarks of the artist himself and shines with a strange, ostentatious modesty which baffles astronomers every time they pry into space.
MATT HOLLINGSWORTH - colour artist (early issues)
The Devil had himself five sons, they say, each more Evil than the last. So Evil were they that even Old Nick himself would tremble every time his bad boys strode into the room in their Air Jordans and khakis.
Now I guess you all know the horrible story about the Devil’s Sons and the Wily Br’er Robot, don’t you ? Every kid learns those queer old tales at his mammy’s dugs so I won’t bore y’all this late on. Let’s just say one of those five brothers had a bigger appetite for a-sodomizin’ and a-cannibalizin’ than all the others put together and one thing, as it often likes to, led to another.
Now it wasn’t long before the Fifth Son of Satan decided he’d had so much fun fuckin’ and eatin’ his brothers that he’d like to go on and do the same to all mankind.
That was until ole Bre’r Robot tricked the Fifth Son by telling him that on Earth ‘fucking’ meant using inks and crayons and machines to add pigment to black scratchings on paper. Then Bre’er Robot saved us all and told the Fifth Son that, on Earth ‘eating’ meant to have publishing schedules and deadlines imposed on your art.
So now Matt Hollingsworth lives in America and has magnificently coloured numerous top comics including PREACHER by Garth Ennis, ALIAS by Brian Michael Bendis ...etc etc.
Hollingsworth uses ‘Evil’ as a perfume to conceal the stink of his very pure soul.
