I fear my fatigue – as in, struggling-to-keep-eyes-open-will-lose-consciousness-any-moment fatigue – has slowly conspired to work against me with this drawing. I don’t know why I’m sounding exasperated at the idea of that being so. There are some things about this one I really don’t like – I think the always-risky inclusion of a background has killed it – but I’m so close to falling face first onto my keyboard that I just don’t care anymore. Besides, it’s good to share.
There is something about it I do like, very much in fact, and that is that it’s Richard O’Brien. The shot itself was taken during a 1992 recording of The Crystal Maze, widely accepted by science and law as the only perfect television show. I could go on for several pages about this programme, but 3:30am probably isn’t a good time for me to start, so I won’t tonight. It’s being revived as a live theatrical action experience, which is far too exciting.
Oh, and Richard also wrote The Rocky Horror Show. But who cares about that when he’s hosted The Crystal Maze?
Edit: OK, I’m certain the motivation to create this was more than a coincidence now, given that it landed on the twentieth anniversary of the last ever episode of The Crystal Maze. I always meant to do something on this date, but it slipped my mind… or so I thought. Something must have clicked in my head!
