Face the Question Contest Winner (Finally!)

It seems to have taken me forever (because it did) but I finally selected a winner for my Face The Question Contest!

As you recall (if you have a good memory) I asked my loyal readers to add a face to this Question illustration:

So without further ado...the winner is "Pumquestion" from Eclectorama's Chunky B!

Okay, so it was timely when it was submitted back in October ;)
Great work CB! You win the Question ATC and two additional ATC cards of my choosing! Woot!

Second Place goes to groovy illustrator Brian Gubicza for this funky entry:

Great job Brian! I'll be sending you an ATC of my choosing for your second place win!

Third Place goes to Jersey lover Jay from The Sexy Armpit for this "serious" entry:

Great job Jay! I'll be sending you an ATC of my choosing for your third place win!

And finally I want to give a big "nice try" to my good friend Brian for this...umm..."effort."

Brian, you get NOTHING! Kidding - Great job other Brian! I'll be sending you an ATC of my choosing for your fourth place win!

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest (and by "everyone" I mean these guys, because they are the only people who entered the contest!)

Thanks guys. Your cards will be in the mail soon!

...and speaking of Zodac

I did this ATC for an 80s cartoon themed trade.

Art Imitates Life Imitates Art

Have you ever noticed those drug ads for pills with names that sound like something out of the old Masters of the Universe cartoons?





Yeah, well so did I. In fact, I've been joking with people for years about how the names they conjure up for these drugs sound like a graduating class from He-Man High School.

I even went so far as to design a few characters:

So imagine my surprise today to discover that someone has in fact made an allergy medicine and has actually used the name of an honest to God Masters of the Universe character!


...meet Zodac...

I did not make this up or photoshop that package, that is a real Hayfever medicine which appears to be available in Australia.

Am I the only one who finds this hilarious?

Blue Beetle!

I did this one for myself. I watched the season premiere of Batman: The Brave and the Bold last week and it featured the "new" Blue Beetle...and while I thoroughly enjoyed the episode and the character I found myself hankering for good old Ted Kord.

So here he is.

This picture makes me happy :)

Up, up and away!

Another card done for my daughter's "town" sale.

Another "Town" request from my daughter. Kitty enjoying a late night snack.

Nananananananana Batman!

My daughter has "Town" in school tomorrow. They pretend the class is a town and they do all sorts of fun stuff, including setting up shops. They then sell stuff for fake money which they can use at other kids' shops. They also earn money throughout the year for good work etc.

So I was drafted to make some ATC cards for her shop.

I made ten cards based on a list she gave me. The first one is Batman. I know this one will sell, because we all know how much kids love Batman!

Inspired by a recent post over at The Aquaman Shrine, I decided to give my personal flair to a Bizarro world version of Aquaman. I dub my strange creation BizAquaman!

BizAquaman is usually found in the hot, dry desert. His greatest weakness is water, and he must be sure to dry off every 24 hours or else he'll die. He carries a blow-dryer at all times, but often spends a good portion of each 24 hour period looking for a European compatible outlet. He also carries an ample supply of baby powder to keep his bum dry.

BizAquaman can communicate with seafood, but it thinks he's a boor and rarely listens.

Inspired by a birthday present I received, I was compelled today to draw the Dark Lord himself...Darth Vader.

(P.S. - I got a light saber ;) )

In keeping with Woodchuck mythology, Woodchuck Chuck is often assisted by an impish forest spirit named Phil, who manifests in the form of Woodchuck Chuck's shadow.

The Spy Who Chucked Me

"My name is Chuck...Woodchuck Chuck"

A James Bond marathon is airing today on cable, so I was inspired to cast my character Woodchuck Chuck as James Bond.

Well kids, Halloween is now upon us, and Halloween Countdown 2008 is dead.

It was a blast posting a Halloween themed illustration every day this month, and I am rather proud of myself for being able to do so without missing a single day! I've also had a blast looking at all the fellow participating bloggers' entries. A lot of people put forth a lot of effort and they all deserve a round of applause!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by, if it was for one day or for all thirty one, and a special thanks to all who took the time to leave such nice comments. It's good to know that my drawings are appreciated.

So without further ado, as the Countdown strikes zero, here's my final Halloween themed illustration for 2008:

Hard to believe there was actually a time when a sunken-faced zombified Michael Jackson wasn't a redundancy.

Happy Halloween everybody! Now go get that candy!

Halloween Countdown 2008 Draws Its Last Breath

Tomorrow is Halloween! That can only mean one thing for Halloween Countdown 2008: DEATH!

Any last words, Halloween Countdown 2008?

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

It's Pronounced "Eye-gor."

What better way to celebrate day 29 of Halloween Countdown 2008, and the last "hump-day" before Halloween, than with Igor?

Of course this is no ordinary Igor. This is Igor ala Marty Feldman, from his famous role in Mel Brooks' Young Frankentstein!

Rise of the Great Pumpkin

Day 28 of Halloween Countdown 2008 is searching for the most sincere pumpkin patch!

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown has been a holiday staple for over forty years. It just aired again tonight, so I watched it for at least the thirty third time in my life (that's all the Halloweens I've lived through so far.)

Snoopy's rise from the pumpkins, being mistaken
by Linus for The Great Pumpkin himself, is probably my favorite moment.

Monday, October 27, 2008

Okay... Show Me

Day 27 of Halloween Countdown 2008 will run you down and squish you flat!

This is Christine, the '58 Plymouth Fury from the classic John Carpenter movie based on the classic Stephen King novel of the same name.

Watch what you say about her...she's real sensitive. Oh, and if you see her coming, try not to run down the center of the street.

Watch Out for the Boogie Man!

Halloween Countdown 2008 shakes it's moneymaker on day 26!

When I was a kid my parents and other assorted adults would warn me to watch out for the "Boogie Man."

I don't know if this "warning" was meant to scare me or save me. One thing is for sure, it was never followed up with any sort of explanation.

So in my little head, with my limited worldly knowledge and experience, I envisioned the "Boogie Man" to be some hippie dude walking around in a perpetual state of "boogie."

In my mind's eye he came out as a cross between Jesus and Tommy Chong, complete with robe, bandanna, sandals, and long hair and scraggly beard. Shaking his ass.

He didn't really seem all that threatening. You would probably spot him coming a mile away, and you could darn sure outrun a guy shaking his ass while he came after you.

The Greatest Monster Hunter of All Time

Can you believe it's already day 24 of Halloween Countdown 2008!

Only one more week until Halloween!


Equally unbelievable is the fact that I've been able to draw and post a Halloween themed image every single day this month. Let's see if I can keep the momentum up for seven more days.


Today I bring you the greatest monster hunter of all time, Simon Belmont, from the classic Nintendo video game Castlevania!

"Crack that whip!"

Betelgeuse Betelgeuse Betelgeuse

It's Showtime!

It's also day 23 of Halloween Countdown 2008, and there's only eight days to go until Halloween night!

I hope you have your costume ready...or to be more economically accurate, I hope you can still afford a costume.

But there is a bright side, kids - Tootsie Cassa-Roll all November!

(awww Mom, leftovers AGAIN?!?!)

Full Moon Fever

Day 22 of Halloween Countdown 2008 needs a shave.

I guess since I already posted Teen Wolf this would be...I dunno...thirty something wolf. You can tell by the extra pounds.

Boo to You

Day 21 of Halloween Countdown 2008 nearly didn't make it!

I've been feeling artistically uninspired the past few days, and have had some pretty heavy things to attend to. When October began I had a backlog of Halloween illustrations in case of such a situation arising...but I've now used them all up!

So I had to come up with something new today. I nearly forgot and went to bed instead, and even when I remembered I had that moment of "blah."

But I then remembered, it isn't just about me. I've got those twelve followers over there on the right to consider as well! ;)

So at first, still feeling "blah" about the whole thing I figured I'd just draw a couple eye holes on a white piece of paper and call it a ghost.

Funny, but not very inspired.

I knew I needed to bring something better. I threw down some sketches...then literally threw them down, towards the trash can, before I fell back on my original ghost idea...with a twist.

Just an unassuming ghost you say? No big deal you say? All that blabbering about your life and this is all you can do for us you say?

Maybe...but wait...there's more!

Hold this card up to the light, and voila...

I drew a skeleton on the back so it'd shine through! Neat!

So even when I'm uninspired I'm still pretty clever.

You're welcome.

Now off to bed.

Mommy? Where are you? Where are you?

Day 20 of Halloween Countdown is heeeerrrrrreeeee!

Having had a similar experience as a child (true story) this scene from Poltergeist has always been my favorite.

I used to get up very early in the morning and sit in front of the TV, very close to the screen. I did not turn the TV on. It was off, but in the reflection of the screen I could see myself, the room and furniture behind me, and people moving about the living room. If I turned around there was no one there, just an empty room.

So I would sit staring for an hour or two at the TV screen and the people in my living room until my Mom woke up and told me to turn it on.

I told her I could see people. I was probably four or five.

She's probably glad I'm not crazy.

Just a Brain in a Jar

Day 19 of Halloween Countdown is nothing but a brain in a jar.

Yup, that's it. Nothing more to see here today. Move along.

This Island Blog

Day 17 of Halloween Countdown 2008 is invaded by this guy from the 1955 Sci-Fi classic This Island Earth, known as a Metaluna Mutant.

I don't know if he's a mutant cabbage or a mutant bollocks, but either way I wouldn't want to bump into him in a dark alley!

I Want My Mummy...

Day 16 of Halloween Countdown 2008 wraps up with this here mummy.

And a joke:

"What's a mummy's favorite type of music?"

The Devil Made Me Do It

Can you believe it's already day fifteen of Halloween Countdown 2008?!?!

To mark such a monumental milestone, today I did a devilish little illustration.

I've always envisioned the Devil as a sort of hedonistic sophisticate, much like Hugh Hefner.

Monday the 13th!

Day 13 of Halloween Countdown 2008 slashes onto the scene with the most violent hockey goalie of all time.

Materializing into Day 11 of Halloween Countdown 2008 is everyone's favorite class five full roaming vapor, Slimer!

Ugh...he slimed me.

Transitioning slowly from my last post back into Halloween Countdown 2008, Day 9 brings you the Creature from the Black Lagoon, with a big grin on those fish-lips of his.
