Charlie was so good they put him back together. The only problem was his mind wasn't on the job when things went south, and there wasn't much left of old Charlie by the end of it. When that silver head stared back at him from the mirror there was only one thing that ran through Charlies mind....Pugs.

You see, Charlies wife was taking everything including the dog before they were picking up bits and pieces of him and Charlie loved that dog. So when they said to Charlie 'we want you to finish that job' he replied 'nay problem, I've just gotta get me Dog'.

Four years later and the price for Pug dogs has sky rocketed, and you know who's sitting on the largest Pug collection this side of China Town? Charlie.

Is there ANY way you could sell this as an oversized gaming mat? My son loves your work on this, and his birthday is coming up. InkedGaming.com (apparently) has a pretty good product: www.inkedgaming.com/products/c…

No problem I'll see if I can set something up at some point as it's just a print on DA at the moment. Thanks for the pic, it made me all warm and fuzzy seeing it.

This is the greatest image ever created img1.fantasticfiction.co.uk/im… I have a copy of it sat on my desk. Weird thing is the guy who painted the image - Pino was one of the best illustrator in recent history www.google.co.uk/search?tbm=is…

"Noah... we found the remains of the unicorn that didn't make it onto the boat. And there's good news... We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster."  Great work!

I'm guessing this robotic Unicorn Charlie
is a friend of Chappie, right?

in case you didn't know, there's a movie about
an AI-operated robot called Chappie. Hugh Jackman
stars in it & it's made by the director who made "Elysium"
and "District 9".
