Season One set contains Starbuck's Coffee, Jaws, and The Prisoner. The idea for this project came from Richard's own interest in films and science fiction, and his previous artwork which has covered caricatures of characters such as Patrick McGoohan as The Prisoner (a black & white drawing done in 1995, recently coloured and finished - see details here). Other one-offs along the way have included art based on The X Files (2000) and Jaws (2002). It was decided to turn these caricatures into greetings card designs by adding a humorous punchline, and combine them with a series of brand new illustrations which have been produced specifically with the 'Geekings Card' concept in mind (typically more visual and filled with in-jokes, such as Starbuck's).

'Where's WALL-E?' giant robot art 
This new piece of artwork by Richard is a one-off design, by far the largest Geekings project to date, which is currently planned to be made available as a poster. Inspired by the famous 'Where's Wally/Waldo' pictures, the idea was to have a crowd of robotic creations (each of which is taken from a movie, tv show, computer game etc) and hide WALL-E amongst them...
