The BBC Amusment Park I Would Like to Visit

Pop Smoothie BBC Amusement ParkA while ago it was announced that there is going to be a BBC Amusement Park opening in 2020.

This is the park I want to visit… Of course rides like the Absolutely Fabulous Blackout and the Black Adder Adventure Times would have to be in later park expansions.

Fortunately, I had help with this cartoon with my Imagineer friends who came up with way more ideas than I had time to draw. I used the most suggestions from Katie Wearne (who feels that we should start designing real amusement parks) and additional help from Nicole Justice, John Karabaic, Avys Hardison, Matt Harmon and Troy Cooksey. Additional thanks to Tiffany Jeane Vincent for a last minute suggestion to the Dr. Who ride name that made it 50% cooler!

I sketched more rides than ended up in the final map; maybe there will be an expansion map with the Chef! Food Court

Oh, and sorry Top Gear… Maybe that can be in the expansion.

sHERLOCK lOOK AND FIND

Who else is excited to see the new episodes of Sherlock coming out in January? I know I am. I watched the first couple seasons several times. Sadly, in the US we have to wait for a couple weeks, but it will be on in the UK New Year’s Day.

Anyway, my last Look and Find was so well received that I decided to do another one… My friend who does hidden pictures for Highlights magazine said I should send them some designs. I have not been motivated to construct one that is kid oriented yet…

The process of this cartoon was really interesting. The set designers on this show are wallpaper crazy; it is in almost every residence. There is definitely a feel of bachelor living to the main apartment design for the main characters. 221b genuinely has a cluttered appearance.

Again, I got in most of my favorite characters. I originally intended to have more of the police officers in the composition, but scaled things back a little bit. Similarly, there are not items related to every episode in the toon, just my favorites.

As you can see from the last Pop Smoothie entry, Martin Freeman (and Benedict Cumberbatch for that matter) are very busy men. I still think MF found his roll in Love Actually to be the most enjoyable. Definitely the costume for that role was the least cumbersome…

Happy New Year’s everyone!
