Over the past week or so, Tracy and I have been watching the DVDs of the British TV series Spaced, starring Simon Pegg (from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz).

We rented Hot Fuzz, and enjoyed it so much I thought we might like the TV show they did (Pegg and director Edgar Wright), not knowing much about it. So we put the first disc in, and in about twenty minutes, we were hooked.

We ended up watching the entire series--14 episodes in all--over just a few days, even watching some of them more than once. Its hilarious, goofy, touching, smart, and a bunch of other things. My feeling watching them was "Where have I been, just getting to this show now?"

Anyway, while listening to the commentary tracks on the DVDs, I wanted to work on something to pay tribute to this fine show, and the result is what you see above.

I originally had the cast members done in my portrait style, but after one or two I realized I liked it better this way, with a more scrappy, fuzzy look. And while I don't think this is some great piece or anything, it was exactly what I wanted to work on at the moment.

"Tim, The Phantom Menace was eighteen months ago!"

"I know, but it still hurts!"
