Neither of which have been shared with that many people.
The first is a drawing I did for Catherine And The Owl. I seem to remember doing this for the poster to our first gig.
I coloured it in just to see how it would look. Clearly inspired by Edward Lear (though he could draw better).

The second Illustration is from some bizarre comic I was drawing called, ‘The Billy Corgon Story’.
I can’t quite remember why, but I know it used to annoy my friend Tim when I claimed the back of the Melon Collie album was a picture of Billy’s bald head slipping beneath the clouds.
Not sure where I was going with this, but I do know that the story involved Billy getting on a ship bound for WW2 that was captained by the infamous ‘headless Jack’.
After three years at sea, Billy discovered ‘Headless Jack’ was in fact a decapitated corpse and that he had been sailing in circles off the coast of Ireland.
I probably shouldn’t be allowed so much free time…
