I had the fantastical idea of cutting out hundreds of wee toys and hanging them on tiny thread in a miniature cardboard set for the Special Benny cover. Unfortunately it took forever and when I scanned the initial figures the light watercolour wash I gave them got lost in the process. Then I realised I'd need proper lighting and a decent studio for it not to look hokey and shit.
It was basically my Apocalypse Now - "I was in my studio, there were too many ideas floating around my head, I had access to too much booze, too much card, too many sweets and little by little I went insane."
Part two didn't go a great deal better but more of that to come!
