George Herriman



As a kid I was every much familiar with George Herriman's Krazy Kat, but until recently just hadn't acknowledged the amount of influence that his work had on my own. I must have been paying more attention than I thought. His linework seemed quick, but had purpose and did everything that linework is supposed to do in a cartoon. His topics were and are topical and I'm more than a bit surprised at how well his work holds up today. I methinks that's why they are considered classics. 

Here's a link to a site that has a good collection of Krazy Kat strips. 

And here is a link to the ebay listing, if interested in purchasing:

Visigoths


I haven't done one of these in awhile and everyone knows that there's a whole lotta stupid out there, but this guy was all kinds of special. I was driving down a very busy road in a blizzard this morning when I see this guy walking towards me. In traffic. Cars swerving to avoid hitting him, sliding all over the place. So, walking in traffic, in a snowstorm is better than getting wet feet walking on the sidewalk? And to top it off, he was dressed for the weather, snowsuit, boots and all. And still he walks in traffic. I swear, common sense left our society sometime ago. 

Oh, and he gave me a dirty look. All I could think of was Sheriff Buford T. Justice lines...

Here a link to what these little cartoons are inspired by.

Shiver On The River 2018


If you are in the Detroit area tomorrow and looking for something to do, head on over to Belle Isle for this year's Shiver on the River event. There will be many things to do across the whole island, including the aquarium, where I will be giving a hand at the fire pit/marshmallow station. 

For my sake, I hope that it isn't so cold that there will be an iceberg attached to the snapping turtle...

...because there might be one attached to me, as well.

Frozen Fish Fiasco Trophy




So, once again I have had the opportunity to sculpt a trophy for the hockey charity event held at Clark Park in Detroit each year called the Frozen Fish Fiasco. This year I did up the design for the Flow trophy that will go to the best Hockey Hair. A fun one to be sure. I modeled the look of this one on the wild mullet of a 90's Jaromir Jagr. Let's call this one Jagr-esque. 

The event will be held this January 27-28 at Clark Park in Detroit, MI and will feature the Detroit Red Wings alumni playing members of the UAW in one of the games. Check out their website for more information.
