Sidney the Kidney – 2012 revamp

First of all, I’d like to commend the NHS for attempting to make the process of organ transplant a little less frightening for children. Such a dauntingly complex process must be an awful experience for a child, so the introduction of a fun character may serve to calm their nerves.

Unfortunately, the NHS saw fit to bestow this little fella onto the public:

The still image doesn’t do him justice though, you need to visit this link – as he is animated.

I don’t know exactly what purpose he serves, in his little medical Pope-Hat, riding an invisible mechanical bull – but he’s definitely the stuff of nightmares.

Now I’m only a humble amateur illustrator, so I could never capture that feeling of abject terror that the original Sidney has managed to foment, but I felt that his look was a little outdated. If anyone was in need of a 2012 makeover, it was Sidney the Kidney.

Sidney 2012:

He’s definitely a good fit for today’s bolder, edgier society. Look at those eyes and tell me he doesn’t mean business.

Of course, if they’re still determined to sow the seeds of fear into our nation’s youth; I’ve got their back.

Sidney Noir:

Anyways, NHS – hit me up.

Product of boredom!

Sleeper Love!

Adorable killing machines!

Metal!

If there’s one thing that folks love, it’s the musical genre of Death Metal. That’s why it’s important to make sure you keep a close eye on the scene. I’ve recently completed the logo for fictional Finnish metolympians Vadertopsy.

Can't make it out? Good! Mission Accomplished.

The man himself…

I’m not a massive fan of Star Wars, but it’s probably best practices to draw someone from that universe eh? I thought it would be best to draw the best character from the series. So here he is:

The man, the beast...the teeth

I bet his breath smells lovely.

It must happen!

Batman’s been in all sorts of insane adventures, I think it’s time he took on some Assassins that don’t have glass jaws.

Hey! HEEEEY! Watch ouuuut!

Nobody can say that this is a bad idea

Mawwiage…

Marriage is what brings us here together today. A piece I illustrated for a good friend’s wedding invitation.

Awww

Look how nice they are...
