"Thompsonian Supper"

This post shows in startling clarity the un-imitatable nature of Ron's "Thompsonian Sketches."

Look how bad this looks compared to Ron's!

--and I really tried!

Ah, blessed artistic diversity.

(I figure posting pale imitations might provoke R.T. into sharing more of his work....)

Project


These are some sketches for one of my projects. They are inspired by some old-time Halloween decorations that I have seen. I'm going to customize a couple of Pumpkin Head vinyl toys by Rose Art called Color Blanks. They come with markers and stickers for customizing but I'm going to use acrylic paint. As soon as I decide which designs to use.

Buddy, Schlub, and the Queen of Outer Space


The top guy looks like Buddy, a friend of my Dads ( who I didn't like much )
Second guy came about when I was watching something I don't remember.
Third thing is what the Alien helmet design looked like in Curtis Harrington's low low budget film Queen Of Outer Space.

Angry gamblers. From "Flight to Fury" again--sorry man, I just haven't scanned anything new! I'll get on it....

True Grit



One of my favorite childhood movies. This looks good - maybe even great. I hear this is closer to the book than the John Wayne version.

State Fair couple

Finally found a title that's been nagging me

I read this back in 98 or 99. Enjoyed it and 2 years ago thought to myself, I'd like to find that book and read it again. Was it called....The Godmakers?
I look that up, the covers seem all wrong and I'm CERTAIN that Frank Herbert didn't write it. The scenario also seems off from what I remember it being about. So it became an on again - off again obsession to find that book.
Finally gave the title The Godmakers another shot and found in Google images the cover I was looking for. It is indeed written by Frank Herbert. My brain. Such putty.

It's better if you see it in widescreen format. Click the link to see it. Looks pretty interesting.

The rare confluence of time, space, and privacy plus someone I know needing a teenage wolf character gave me the opportunity to use my pencils and computer and finally post something.

FLIGHT TO FURY

I think I got this movie from Ellis a million years ago--got it on VHS. Called "Flight to Fury," a weird melange of a flick that combines a serial murderer, Asian-American tensions, prostitution, gambling, international spying, and a plane crash that leads to a group survival situation. I did some drawings form on it on slow mo a while ago.

It's main interest to the modern viewer is the role of the genial American serial killer, played by a very young Jack Nicholson.I think I'll post a few more drawings on the Brush Pen Breakfast blog.

A VERY Lost Saturday Morning Treasure


The Legend of Calamity Jane was an animated television series produced by Canal+ and France 3. The series followed the adventures of Calamity Jane. The series was gritty, much like Batman: The Animated Series and had a very European animation style. It aired in France and Canada from 1997 to 1998 and in Portugal in 2002.

In the United States, three episodes were aired on The WB in 1997. The WB gave the series heavy promotion, but quietly pulled it from their line-up after only three episodes. No reason was ever given (although the show's violence was the most likely plausible explanation). It was promised on Warner Bros.' website that the show would return later in the year, and that Superman: The Animated Series would be filling in for its timeslot, but this proved to be untrue.

I really LOVED this show with what few episodes that aired. I told myself back then that it was TOO violent and adult for the braindead kids who would sop up Pokemon. But I found this to be stylish and VERY European comic story telling like Blueberry. I wish it was on DVD but I'll have to suffice with the YouTube stuff till then.

It Has Been Suggested...

...that this person resembles our Ellis.

Ellis as an old man, wandering the Louvre.

From a Paris trip in '08. Did I share this already?
