Laundry Knight

Dug this up from my old New Yorker rejects file...

This is a parody of Batman and Robin™  which are, of course, trademarks of DC Comics

Ad Cad

I apologize for having neglected the blog; I'm currently working on three projects, the art from which I cannot print here until each has been first published in its proper venue. So here's a doodle of everybody's favorite ad cad that I did yesterday.

Amazing Voice-Activated Hot Air Balloon!

Except for the title fonts, this one came to me fully-formed and woke me from a mid afternoon nap.
Nearly ten years later, a similar gag showed up on 30 Rock

Housetace Tilley, a reinterpretation of the New Yorker's famous mascot drawn for this year's Eustace Tilley Contest.  It didn't win, but I sure had fun making it.

The One That Won

I should explain. There are twelve finalists in the New Yorker's Annual Eustace Tilley Contest, which challenges readers to reinterpret Rea Irvin's design of the magazine's mascot dandy. My entry, "Schach Treatment",  (above) was one of the twelve winning designs for the 2009 competition, and it's the only one of my entries that ever made it to the finals. (These aren't actual New Yorker magazine covers, just designs conforming to the contest's parameters.)

I Think; Therefore, I Yam

One of my entries for the New Yorker's annual Eustace Tilley Competition, depicting the then-imminent expiration of  Popeye's European copyright. This one didn't win, but it was, at least, discussed briefly on the Comics Journal message board .

Bratman Begins

Here's a scan of the art for the RAMONES T-shirt I did back in 1995, with my original wonky hand-lettering. Later versions of the shirt featured the same cartoon in the circular frame with bold sans serif lettering more consistent with the look of most of the other RAMONES shirts.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."- Lao Tzu

Seems appropriate to kick things off with this:
Say....That'd look good on a T-shirt...
