52 Posters - Nemesis & Torquemada


From the pages of 2000AD, and probably my favourite series. Nemesis The Warlock pitted aliens against humans with the humans as the bad guys, and Thomas de Torquemada as chief loon, pushing an earth-wide party line of fear, hate, and extreme xenophobia. (Oh how we laughed back then...)

Anyway, the art begun by Kevin O'Neill, then Bryan Talbot and carried on by others - John Hicklenton in particular - blew my teenage mind. 

Most of these pieces are to push me out of my comfort zone with various art materials and techniques. This is simply a fanboy pic.

Black ink & washes, graphite powder, fine liner pen.
