Some ol' stuff--

I thought I'd wrap up the month with two of April's biggest fools; Ralph Kramden & Ed Norton. The Phantom and Lou Albano issues were big leaps away from what my idea of Honeymooners stories should have been, but when you've got partners that are footing the bill you have to make them happy too. The Phantom issue was a complete "sell out" cashing in on the then wildly popular play. But the Lou Albano one was done for a good cause- each copy came with an envelope that you could use to mail a donation to The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and Lou was a Fundraising Chairman.

The Lou Albano cover was laid out by the legendary DC comics cover artist
Win Mortimer. In the late '40s Win illustrated almost every cover of Detective Comics.

The flying '55 Chevy Christmas cover was one of the most fun pieces for me because I finally got the chance to do a panoramic shot of Brooklyn. My friend Ted Camut helped me with the car rendering and the airbrush effects. This was my attempt at a DELL comics style cover.

lazy sunday '70s-style stoner sketch...

I used to fill sketchbooks with this kind of stuff in the early '70s. I was inspired by Robert Crumb and Ralph Bakshi in those days. Lately I've been devouring the new book on Bakshi "Unfiltered", so I guess the bug has bitten me again.

naso rosso--

I've added the larger images again.
I guess people like big noses.

Who knew?

Admittedly.... a very weak post, but I had to do something for April Fool's Day. This is a piece from last years' April ISM show. It's part of a rushed tryptic I tried to pull together in a week or two. I might have posted it before, but hey-- whatta'ya want for nothing?

I didn't attend this show and looking back I wish I had.

Here's a digital remix, one year later--
