Happy Holidays 2013


This year seems to be the Year-of-the-Sasquatch for me. Bigfoot feels like it has taken the place of Mother Nature as a symbol for keeping the environment in good shape. I have drawn several bigfoot sketches during the year. When it became time to come up with a Christmas card, I began thinking about our crypto-hominid friend having a quiet moment.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

The Spanish poster from the movies release in Mexico looks better than the English version of the poster.

Space Nut

I was just testing a scanner with an old Beetle Baily comic I had around; nw I can't find the book to write down the issue number. Well, I like the art - simple but effective. I also appreciate that the hand lettering is not as small as most digital lettering is done today.

Basil Wolverton

When I saw this panel by Basil Wolverton, I immediately thought about Robert Crumb.

People either hate or love Wolverton's art. To see a couple of stories by him click over to Cartoon Snap.

Nick Cardy R.I.P.

I just opened up the computer, I was working in the garden today, to discover that Nick Cardy has passed away. He was alway such a solid artist on the books I remember him from, like Aquaman, Teen Titans, Bat Lash and many of D.C.'s mystery books.

I am beginning to understand how my parents felt when their favorites from popular culture began passing away. Many of the artists I admired and looked forward to seeing their art have not been active for a long while but knowing that there isn't any chance of seeing new work from them is sad.

Thankfully, we can see a lot of what they produced and keep the good memories from the enjoyment they were responsible for bring us.
