31 Days... 31 scary movies. Tonight’s movie is my favorite alt-Zombie flick, β€œFido”. When a cloud of space dust causes the dead to rise as ravenous zombies, the ZomCon Corp. emerges to conquer the creatures and domesticate them to become menial workers and pets for humans. Now, in an idyllic town, a skeptical boy (K'Sun Ray) finds a best friend in his family's new fiend, which he promptly names Fido (Billy Connolly). But Fido's control collar malfunctions, and the neighbors wind up on the menu. #fido #altzombie #zombies #zombiemovie #1950s #1960s #retro #comical #scarymovies #horror #zomcon #headcoffin #billyconnolly

Good morning.....Next up we have a caricature of Billy Connolly running aboot in the scud.....You're welcome!

The Big Yin memorably ran naked through the streets of London at rush hour in aid of Comic Relief many years ago...so what better way to depict him than in his birthday suit in full on streaker mode!

Hope this makes you smile πŸ˜ƒ

Big Yin number 6 from my new collection is oor Billy depicted in character in his 'serious' role as aid to Queen Victoria from the BAFTA winning 90's movie, 'Mrs Brown'. After the death of her beloved husband Prince Albert, Queen Victoria (played by Dame Judi Dench) withdraws from public life, so the court appoints a former servant of the Prince, John Brown (Billy Connolly) to help her recover from her grief. Brown's unorthodox ways and disdain for protocol draw the queen out of her shell and the brash Scot becomes her sole confidant. However, their growing closeness causes a stir, as scandalous rumours begin circulating about the exact nature of their relationship.
It's a cracking movie and well worth a watch if you're unfamiliar. Enjoy!

Fido (15 rating), British Columbia Productions, 2006

Plot - After a zombie outbreak, the remaining zombies are controlled and kept as servants to the living. However, when a young boys new servant kills their neighbor, he does everything possible to save his dead friend. 1 point.

Characters - Timmy Robinson is a young boy who gets his very own zombie as a pet. He's a typical young boy, with a tiny attitude problem that never gets irritating, who is willing to do anything to protect his best friend. Fido is a 6 foot tall zombie servant who has trouble controlling his hunger for humans. Whilst nothing is known about his life prior to zombification, he's a simple yet likable character who is oddly cute in some ways. Side characters like Timmy's family and Mr Bottoms help add different personalities to the film. 1 point overall.
Acting - The acting here is pretty good with Billy Connolly (Famous Scottish comedian) playing Fido. 1 point.
Visuals - Being set in the 1950s, this film oozes with charm and blood. The colours are bright and everything is very stylized, especially the costumes. The zombie make-up is a little lacking, mostly being face paint, but it's well done. This film also has more than enough blood to satisfy the gore lovers. 1 point.

Ending - The ending is weirdly quite sad with Timmy fighting to keep his friend until the end with a funny, yet fitting, epilogue. 1 point.

Final Rating - 5/5. Haven't seen a full marker in a while huh? I didn't have high hooes for this movie but it surprisingly blew me away. A simple plot, likable and a good bout of tongue in cheek humour, this is an underrated gem for all zombie lovers. Now I want a pet zombie... called Fluffy. XD

My next caricature of Billy Connolly based on one of his most memorable TV appearances....ITV's 'An Audience with Billy Connolly' which aired on October 25th 1985....and it was truly unforgettable!

There have been many 'Audience With' specials over the years but none have come as close as this magnificent special which ranks as one of the best ever...and cemented Connollys status as one of the funniest people on the planet....(if not THE funniest)! Highlights include his material about Scottish singers and songs, religion, Saturday morning newspaper ads which advertise 'the big slipper' and 'incontinence trousers' (to wear down to the disco!) are truly absolute stand out moments of comedy perfection.

Hope you like my little caricature tribute to one of Billys most memorable performances. I thought it would be fitting to draw him pointing to his trousers...."That's the very boys for me...!" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #BillyConnolly #TheBigYin #BigYinPortrait #AnAudienceWithBillyConnolly #Scottish #comedy #OorBilly #caricature #caricatures #caricaturist #EddTravers #art #instaart #PureMinted

Spotted another of the Billy Connolly murals finally, this one by John Byrne. One more to go! πŸ€“πŸŽ¨πŸŽ­

Here's a little extra 'Bonus Billy!' Seeing as how the Big Yin is a life long Glasgow Celtic fan, I thought it would nice to depict him in a vintage strip.

Now - please don't misunderstand, there won't be 2 Billys in the finished line up print who look the same, but in different football strips....it'll be the 'Scotland Strip Billy' who features in the finished product.

That said however, we will probably do a range of stand alone 'Celtic strip Billy' prints, mugs and coasters which I'm hoping will appeal to the faithful fans of Glasgow's green and white! πŸ˜ƒ

Hope you like it! So please tag and share this with all your Celtic fan bhoys and ghirls....Thanks! πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€ #BillyConnolly #TheBigYin #BigYinPortrait #Celtic #celticfc #CFC #Glasgow #champions #celticfamily #celticfans #glasgowceltic #the hoops #hoopsfans #caricature #caricatures #caricaturist #OorBilly #EddTravers #Scotland #celticgifts

"OH FLOOOWER OF SCOT-LUUUUUUND....!!" Here's Billy number 4 from my new caricature project......all fired up and decked out in 'tartan army' gear ready to support Scotland at the World Cup back in the day....
When we were contenders!

Anyone remember when we used to take part in world cups? I do.....I think it's really sad that both of my children have never known Scotland to be in a World Cup in their lifetime. I really hope we can change this soon as it's been waaaay too long! Meanwhile we'll just have to keep on supporting Ireland then......or whoever is playing against England as usual!.πŸ˜ƒ #BillyConnolly #TheBigYin #BigYinPortrait #Scotland #Scottish #TartanArmy #WorldCup #caricature #caricatures #caricaturist #OorBilly #EddTravers #PureMinted #Glasgow #art #instaart

A lot of people have prized possessions, something special that you frame or place on your shelf. This ticket here, is one of my biggest prized possessions. On July the 1st, I had the pleasure of seeing Billy Connolly live. It was amazing, laughed so hard my throat was sore as hell. Billy Connolly has been a huge figure for me in my life. After the show, I had the absolute honor of meeting him, face to face. Then something happened that I never thought would happen. My sister pulled him aside and said, "you see that wee boy there? It's because of you, he learned how to talk right". The look on his face. It was amazing. When I was very young, I had difficulty speaking. I was sent to a language unit in nursery and primary school but they didn't help much. One day, everyone was in the living room watching a VHS tape of Billy in the Albert Hall, howling with laughter. And from that very tape, I learned how to talk. Obviously, the words I learned how to speak right were swear words but I learned non swearing words very quickly. 😊 The fact he talked to me for several minutes, was astounding to me, even the people who were looking to get their tickets signed were amazed. Billy Connolly is truly the greatest comedian that the UK has ever seen and truly the most amazing man I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. I only ever met him once but what puts a smile on my face is that, he took the time to talk to me. And it is something that I would never trade for anything else.
