Lucky Leo is a a story about a guy who goes to hell, and later gets a chance to get his life back. All he has to do is put the devil’s brother back in the box he escaped from. The devil’s brother, Larry, had turned portions of the world upside-down. Outrageous characters sprang up overnight. The criminals were the most fun to create. My favorite was Jimmy The Wig, a murderous mobster, whose obsession with his hair is so off the charts, that he never wears the same wig twice. My favorites are The Mighty Thor and Dee Dee Ramone wigs.
Equally obsessed with his mane is the 70’s walking cliche, Freddie The Fro. Sworn enemy of Jimmy The Wig, for no other known reason than coif-envy.
Ripley is the working name of the main character. I’m always amazed how I begin drawing with one idea of the character and wind up somewhere totally different. This was started back in 2004 when I lived in Los Angeles.
3 of the 9000 Monsters: A fish man, Sasquatch, and a ghost.
60’s and 70’s inspired deep groove sound, this record represents some of best work on the Soul Fire label. Released in 2005, but I just got around to picking it up this week. Only drawback: these double CD jewel boxes always break the minute I open them.
Just finished reading this on the beach today. Neil Gaimen and Michael Reaves had me hooked! At 256 pages it’s a quick read, full of action, danger, interdimensional travel, and some of the meanest villains I’ve ever encountered. The book reads like a blockbuster Hollywood film, but with way more heart. Bravo!
Here’s as good’a place as any to post this. Batman director Kevin Altieri did an amazing job on this. Check out John DiMaggio (voice of Bender on Futurama) at the beginning and very end. He was replaced by Greg Proops (not sure why). EG Daily (of zillions of cartoons like Power Puff Girls and Rug Rats, and Pee Wee’s girlfriend Dotty in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure) voice’s Roscoe’s ex-girlfriend.
I could go into what I liked and what I wouldn’t have put in, but it’s a short — it was eye-candy to show the suits at UPN back in 2000.
Here at the Jersey Shore: Water temp: 70 Air temp: 68. The water is 2 degrees warmer than Malibu, CA today ( looked on the magical internetter box ). So what am I doing besides not surfing? Running back and forth to Lowes sprucing up the house before our 3rd annual July 3rd party. Red Bank has the biggest fireworks show in the state, and Judie & I throw a big BBQ / New Brunswick Mafia reunion. But I’m on a roll here and need to keep battin’ out the art. So here’s a color / tightened-up version of the Carmen Monoxide character designs.
