On the left is an old drawing, a self portrait of me seated at my drawing board, it's one of those pictures left unfinished and consigned to my graveyard of forgotten and abandoned sketches.
My idea was to depict a motley crew of gun toting zombies assembled behind, but I then watched From Dusk to Dawn and decided I'd much prefer a gang of armed demon biker vampires.I couldn't quite make up my mind which to go with and so it languished forgotten,
..... until now that is, bizarrely I was actually held up at gun point in October 19 2012 and as a result I remembered this picture along with a comic strip that drew that had remarkable parallels with this incident. I dusted this off, added colour and here it is presented in all its digitally re-mastered glory.
This is also the reason I hadn't been very active here on Deviantart for the most part of this year.
On the right side of the image i have shown actual CCTV stills - the bottom right image is the moment he fired at me. Luckily I was unscathed, but the real reason I've posted this up was to explain my absence and say special thanks to all those wonderful people who visited my gallery, favoured my pictures and left comments. I really do appreciate every single interaction and my most sincere apologies to you if I didn't respond.
*Quick update * I took some time to write up a basic account in my journal of what actually happened if anyone wanted a read it can be found here ---> thegurch.deviantart.com/journa…
On a separate but related note: if I ever get to meet I would love to give the following good people the hugest hug or the biggest beer ( whichever they'd most prefer)

During my low points their thoughtfulness helped me a lot, just a few kind lines regularly sent by them asking how I'm doing really did make a difference. They helped reconfirm that there's more good than bad in the world, I'm thankful to have friends such as these.
You guys have my most sincere gratitude, your support was really touching.
I thank you in massive amounts.
