Drawing100 – 13. Misfortune

Day 13: Today’s topic is Misfortune. And I almost had a sketch of a guy in a red Trek suit. But being a big IT Crowd fan, I went for the following scene. I tried to reduce the hard work by just keeping the “camera” on Moz, and totally ignore the bomb squad.

Also, I was a bit lazy with today’s drawing. No colours. Just a very quick sketch.

Misfortune - IT Crowd

I hope you like the comic strip kinda look on today’s sketch. If you’re confused about what the heck is happening, go watch The IT Crowd. If you think The Big Bang Theory is geeky and funny in a nerdy way, wait until you watch The IT Crowd, and be very prepared to laugh until it hurts.

This drawing is a part of the Draw100 challenge. For the entire list, check out the Drawing 100 Challenge page.

The Bells of Saint John offered a whole bundle of entertainment and was a befitting series opener. Here are my assorted thoughts on the episode. Spoilers galore after the jump.

Brooker’s warped vision of our over-dependence on technology resonates through all of the previous episodes. But White Bear isn’t just that. Here are my thoughts on it.

Black Mirror Series 2 Episode 1 – Be Right Back [TV Review]

Black Mirror - Charlie Brooker

Charlie Brooker’s cynical and bleak reflection on the modern world and its many trappings returns in the form of Series 2 of Black Mirror. The three episodes of Series 1 swept across all genres – tech commentary, dystopian societies, human drama, futuristic romance, and even social networks. It left me asking for more. And with the opening episode of series 2, I can safely say, that we are in for a ride.
