The Iceman Cometh ...Again.


After I finished my Romain Grosjean drawing, I couldn't NOT do a Kimi one. Over this winter break I've kind of fallen in love a bit with Kimi Raikkonen, I already knew he was awesome (he is a World Champion after all), and that he was hilariously laid back, but then I kinda got involved in the Tumblr world of F1 and there's a lot of Kimi love there! My team for this season is definitely Lotus, especially after they retweeted my Romain drawing and spoke to me:


And obviously for just being all-round amazing people, totally the best at interacting with the fans and have a genuine sense of humour. So yeah, sorry JB, you'll still always be my man, but 2013 is the year of the Lotus boys.

Oh oh, last night I read this brilliant fanfic (I know, don't judge me) about Sebastian Vettel being a robot - a creation of Red Bull made to win races - and that's almost EXACTLY what I said about him all through 2011. But oh gosh this fic... Properly got to me, and the ending... Literal gasps of horror. Anyway, here it is, but be warned that there's quite heavy graphical Kimi/Seb but it's all very sweet and makes total sense in context.

RoGro

Wow, what a day. I've spent a few evenings working on something totally nerdy and fangirly, and last night I finally finished it. I was trying something different - drawing from a photograph, concentrating on greyscale, etc. Pretty pleased with how it turned out.

It's my favourite (and most adorable) F1 driver, Romain Grosjean.


Then I took the liberty of tweeting the Lotus F1 Team about it, and then THEY retweeted it and my Twitter feed exploded:



Everyone was so nice about it and some dude asked me to draw him so now I'm going to do that, and then start work on a Kimi Raikkonen drawing :D Just.. Amazing.

Fuck love.


I think this might be the best thing I have ever drawn.

I love it right now anyway, I'll probably hate it tomorrow. Feel like I'm channelling Steve Zissou with that hat/shirt combo - it was unintentional, I swear!

It was ably aided by the greatest hits of Ash which I listened to while drawing it, I think maybe Clones has overtaken Goldfinger as my favourite Ash song... But now I'm listening to Twilight of the Innocents and it's epic as fuck and I just want to yell and listen to those strings foreverrrrr!

"I'm still breathing, my heart's still beating."

Remember this.
