Baba Looey!

Baba Looey has always been my all time favorite Ed Benedict design.

This was my super macho take on him for a tattoo design for my pal Xander Leighton, a really cool artist from Mukpuddy in New Zealand. Hopefully after his wife Karla Hansen tattoos it on him they send me a pic and I'll post it.

I always wanted to do an epic Spaghetti Western with Baba Looey avenging the death of Quick Draw McGraw. If anyone at Cartoon Network has the power to allow this shoot me an e-mail :)

2009 LA MYTH Art Show "Super Popo"

This is my other 11x14 acrylic on canvas paintings for the 2009 LA MYTH Art Show (curated by Dee Chavez and Aaron Clark). The opening reception is Feb 7, 2009 at Meltdown Comics 7522 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90046.

The theme of the show is LA myths:

Meet Super Popo! You know all those thousands of poos you find on the sidewalks of Los Angeles? Yeah, the ones we think are from dogs? They are actually gifts from Super Popo, an illegal alien luchador (Mexican masked wrestler) from outer space. Those poos are his kind-hearted gifts to Angelinos for shooting their guns and sending him bullets on Cinco de Mayo.

I love LA...
