There's no escaping destiny...
I guess Gene Wilder was right when he screamed out those words in "Young Frankenstein". I've always loved drawing popular characters. It's probably no coincidence that I work in the business of licensed characters. In the early '70s the Marx Brothers were enjoying a resurging popularity and I couldn't get enough of them. Especially Groucho. I filled up sketchbooks with his image and adapted his humor in my dealings with others. I'm still influenced by him.
I guess classic characters never go out of fashion.
At least I hope not.
