USS Stirling

Posted in Uncategorized on July 30, 2012 by therichieboy



Here are 2 pics of a starship I made in Google Sketchup and enhanced with Photoshop.

I used Sketchup rather than Maya or 3ds Max because I don’t have 5 unbroken years to learn how to use them. Anyone else wants a go- please do. I’ll try and get the .skp file up on Google 3d Warehouse.

The ship is inspired by the brilliant John Eaves who’s a big-baller in the universe of Star Trek production.

The original pic that inspired me can be found on John Eaves’ blog:

And he’s awesome.

Live Long…. in Gloucester.

Yeah, I know this bloke’s been at this for years but I don’t get to Covent Garden very often. Why? Because if i want to be surrounded by vast swathes of people enjoying themselves I wouldn’t be called Richie the Miserable Bastard of Seville. I know you’re all all screaming at your PC screens saying ‘theRichieBoy’s not from Seville’, but you can all shut up. By ‘all’ I mean ‘please look at my blog…somebody. I just want your love. And a house plumbed with Worthington’s White Shield.’

Why not live at Hounslow? Because I do, that’s why…

…and living in Hounslow’s got to be the best reason not to want to live in Hounslow.

You naughty A380

Oi A380, I can see you sneekily flying out of my parents’ bedroom window. Why are you in their bedroom? You don’t even need a bed- you’re a plane. You shouldn’t even have the ability to trick me with forced perspective. You’re a plane.

Why are things?

This is what google tried to tell me I was searching for when actually I was searching for ‘Why are people so against looking at my blog? Is it because they’ve cracked the fact that I have  malware encoded into this text that is going to directly infect your brain, sukka?’ (You can now send me your bank details including pin number with your comments).

Toby is now an Underground Lion

Posted in Animals on July 22, 2010 by therichieboy

The lovely little boy ran away the other day but then very kindly returned to regale us with tales of times past, when the back garden was a better place for a struggling cat who was trying to make it in the back garden. The next day he said ‘nang’ for the last time before hanging up his whiskers and departing for the great robin maming ground in the sky. RIP Toby:  Early 90s – 2010.
