Jackie O. Galapagos


So, for my next character design, I chose Jackie O. from the recently reread Kurt Vonnegut book, Galapagos.  While not really a character in the book, she is mentioned as one of the celebrities that have booked 'The Cruise of the Century' to the Galapagos Islands in the story. The intended cruise. You'll have to read the book to know more. 

A character by the name of Jesus Ortiz describes my inspiration for Jackie O., or as he puts it, Señora Kennedy:

"But now the truth about one of these supposedly wonderful visitors, *Andrew MacIntosh, had polluted Ortiz's metal picture not only of all the other minor deities, but of Señora Kennedy herself.

So that head-and-shoulders portrait grew fangs like a vampire, and the skin dropped off the face, but the hair stayed on. It was a grinning skull now, wishing nothing but pestilence and death for little Ecuador."

Emma Peel Artist Proof Sketch Cards

Since the passing of Diana Rigg last week, I thought it would be a good time to make my Emma Peel sketch cards available for purchase again. And not at a higher price, either. In fact, I've lowered the price some. These cards were done for two different set, but basically the same company. The first two were through Strictly Ink and the next two after their name change to Unstoppable Cards. Links are below each card.

Carl Sagan

This post continues coming up with character designs from the books that I'm reading, with none other than Carl Sagan. Now this was a work of non-fiction (The Dragons Of Eden), but I thought what if Carl were to be made into an animated tv show or cartoon of some sort? I know, I know, how could Carl Sagan be any more animated than he already was? Well, here he is doing just that.

Seriously, I think he was very animated, talking with his hands just as much as his words.
