Here we are, fresh back from the Fantasy Zone! Happy Halloween, everybody!
This year’s pumpkins feature a character I’ve been requested to carve many times–Fantasy Man–and his nemesis, the awful Reality Man, who just doesn’t like “made-up shit.” He also apparently doesn’t like being photographed, because it proved impossible to get all the fine detail in any photo, so I apologize if it all looks a bit wonky. He’s kind of a dick, you know?
Meanwhile, Fantasy Dick–er, Fantasy Man–was as sweet and obliging as his namesake and had no trouble taking us all to the Fantasy Zone. With the release of the second series of Luxury Comedy this year, and Fantasy Man figuring into the current tour, it seemed like the perfect time to give Tron Quixote the recognition he deserves!
As always, no tricks or cheats used. I came up with both designs from reference caps of the Reality Man episode of Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy, and they were carved with my own two hands and a series of saws and pokey thingies. Please enjoy, and have a Happy Halloween!
Seems like a lot of people are up for this so let’s do the thing! I’m happy to kind of oversee, but I think it should be a fandom-run activity on the whole. We can have a poll each month to pick the themes, so everybody gets a say if they want to :).
So! If you guys could reply to this post or send me an ask with ideas for our first theme, we can get things moving!
I’m excited! Are you excited?!
(PS sorry to clog the tags - all following posts will just be in #the mighty boosh and #boosh art club)
Seeing Noel’s tweet with all his arty materials got me pondering, and I had an idea… and I dunno if it’s a good idea or what but I thought I’d put it out there.
Would any of you lovely Booshy people be interested in an actual Boosh/LuxCom/etc art club? I know some other fandoms have something similar and it occurred to me that, as one of the more creative little gatherings on tumblr, it’s a bit odd that we don’t!
We could have a monthly theme (eg a particular scene from the show, a line of dialogue, a holiday, a screencap, a medium to work in etc) and anyone interested could produce some artwork to fit. Anything goes - traditional/digital/gifsets/embroidery/sea shell collage whatever! We could have a special tag and everything! ’#boosh art club’ maybe, or something more creative :D.
I know I get inspired by the boys’ crazy creativity on an almost daily basis, and having a little community like this would be a cool way to channel that into something….
