Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
I especially love the crossed band-aids on the head! They were always putting those on the characters in Mad. Might have been a Wally Wood or Jack Davis thing. Makes the character seem so grubby.
Nice! Reminds me of the has-been/senior superhero series of drawings.
Nice! Should we take up a collection for him? ... ;-)
Probably Jack Davis bandaids Tom.Not a bad Mr Clean with no ref. I might have given him a genie vest and then discovered it was always a nice clean T.
Have you seen that new book "Ad Boy: Vintage Advertising with Character". Bud Plant sent around an e-mail advertising it. And on Amazon you can browse through the book a little and see a lot of funny old little-remembered mascots. Is this what gave you the idea for the series Rick?http://www.amazon.com/Ad-Boy-Vintage-Advertising-Character/dp/1580089844/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1247186683&sr=1-1#
No, I think it was a combination of the aging superheroes (as Beata suggests) and one of the artists at work who did a series of paintings of the Otter Pop characters.LOVE Jack Davis!Hey, that book looks awesome! I think I need to get that.More drawings to come.
I think I forgot to give him a gold earring.
