Cherry Stem-twisting Siren

If you can tie a cherry stem into a knot using only your tongue, you're OK in my book.

There is a new comic coming out in April called Viking. The artwork looks pretty bad-ass and over on they had the artist give a quick step by step look at his process. Here's the link.

Ultimate Warrior

Last week I had a conversation with a few chums about the late 80's / early 90's era of the WWF. By far my favorite wrestler at the time was the Ultimate Warrior. I think what I liked best about his character was the costume and the face paint, plus when his intro music played he would sprint out to the ring instead of giving high fives to the fans. ( I can relate because I also hate touching strangers and vice versa.) After spending the evening reminiscing about old wrestlers I decided to jump on youtube and watch old footage of Ultimate Warrior. I caught a few of the Warrior's interviews with Mean Gene and came to the conclusion that one of my childhood idols was borderline retarded. His interviews pretty much consisted of grunts followed by pacing and more grunts. Boy, could I pick 'em.

So he is the subject matter for tonights sketch. Also, if you're a fan of The Maxx, you will probably recognize this layout from the cover of issue #2.

BOOM goes the dynamite. IN YO FACE!!!!

I like to flip through old magazines on occasion. I'm not talking about WWII era Life magazines or anything like that...more like magazines that are about 15 years old. I like to see all of the advertisements for television shows that were unsuccessful or Joe Camel illustrations that were in print (before parents with sticks up their asses bitched to the point of getting Joe Camel removed.) Tonight I pulled out a Sports Illustrated year in review '92. Some of the topics were interesing, Can the Celtics carry on without Bird?, Can Michael and the Bulls make it A three-peat?, Can Bonds and the Pirates finally get to the World Series?...etc. There were also a lot of stories about the '92 Olympics that took place in Barcelona, especially since that was the first year the U.S.A. brought out the Dream Team. Anyways, I found this picture of George Foreman competing in one of the first of many comebacks he had in the 90's. This is a quick paint sketch done with gouache.
