@emsenn In the '80s and '90s, George Perez was the go-to comics illustrator for huge crossover events where you'd get 20, 30, 100 different superheroes on a page. The last five or so years, I've increasingly been landing illustration gigs around the end of the year where I have to draw 10, 20, 30+ celebrity likenesses in an illustration.
My five-year-old, listening to the #radio:
[announcer speaks for ~30 seconds, gives station ID and announces the next track...]
"Dad? Is this an ad?"
"No, it's the DJ."
"DJs are annoying."
@fluffy That's Luke! For a few months in '75, George Lucas was considering a female protagonist, and there are character designs for a female Luke. The bearded bloke with the "laser sword" is Han Solo, or simply "the pirate" as he was in those days.
My friend, ace cartoonist Aaron Florian, asked me to do a couple pieces for a #StarWars show he’s curating in Victoria, BC. Here’s the second piece. It’s a sort-of ‘80s comic book-style poster for The Star Wars, which, in this alternative universe didn’t get made into a movie but instead went straight to comics with circa-1975 character/ship designs by Ralph McQuarrie and Colin Cantwell.
I’m gonna sell prints of this. I’ll post an update when those are available.
Hey, fedizens — take a moment if you please to sign this petition to tell Macmillan Publishers not to restrict e-book access to public libraries. https://p2a.co/fgcQkzV
Hard to believe I've been listening to Boom Boom Satellites' _Out_Loud_ for 21 years! Still one of my all-time favorites. Hits so many sweet spots for me: electronic sounds, rock sounds, fat, chopped-up drums, great grooves with a sort-of menacing undertone on a lot of tracks. Great stuff. https://music.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_lhp_Ot7lywkpwPoLrzgel2ymFqAwEhDBc
Yeah, I had cracked wheat with sardines and capers for #breakfast today. So what!?
