Hair perfect, just like Annette!



   Drew the face years ago. Finally figured out how to finish out the piece after Christmas! (Still had to tweak the face a little, so I could just as well have started from scratch......)

What have you missed at A Slice of Cheesecake?

   That's a very good question if you haven't taken a peek at my other blog (the one that get's updated on a regular basis -so far, daily). Here're a few samples of pix I posted last year, and this is only the tip of the iceberg. (A Slice of Cheesecake does contain some mild nudity, most of it "historic" and centered around the 50's and 60's, but fair warning.)

VHS covers I had to make






  Every once in a while I'll end up with a tape that doesn't have a box, so I'll have to make a box for it (or, more accurately, a cover to slip into a sleeve on a tape case). I decided I'd share some of these, since they demonstrate another of my hobbies and some of my composition work. Some of my hand-drawn wording is crude (had to do what I could at the time, y'know), but much of this stuff was created by combining elements from magazine clippings and the like.





A very early attempt...

Ev designs

  In re-working EV (my early comic strip project about a hillbilly bombshell) into a new project, I'm taking steps to make her look less like Long Sam. Here are some of the rough ideas I've been trying...

Some sketches!


"Sis was wrong about the glasses!"


Here's one from last year. I didn't like the face.
Now I hate the hand, and the image has since been altered.

Return for Ev?

A quick sketch of my old 'EV' characters, from my failed attempt to sell a newspaper strip some years back. Thinking of reviving the characters in a more standard comic book format.... We'll see....

Godzilla, Kong, same thing, right?!!




   GODZILLA VERSUS THE SEA MONSTER (1966) was the first Godzilla film released directly to television in the United States. It also just happened to be my first Oddball Film Report subject. As I noted there, the film was originally meant for King Kong to star in. Substituting the big blue dinosaur (when the rights to the great ape were tangled) resulted in one fun adventure movie. By the way, in Italy, the film's title actually mentioned Godzilla! Most such films screened in Italy were given a title change that somehow referenced King Kong. This time, however, they got the right monster in the title! As you can see below, that's about all they got right!

"Love Hurts"









Inks and tones by Jeff Austin, for a story by Jason Crawley published in Bloke's Terrible Tomb of Terror. Just a few panels/pages, but you'll have to buy the book to see the horrifying ending!
