Another new/old drawing, penciled in 2007 and inked/colored in February, 2017. "What a repugnant protuberance!" was a slogan I used to randomly toss into conversations when things got dull and the expression eventually inspired this drawing. Your guess is as good as mine as far as the meaning of this piece (if any) is concerned but I think an old favorite quotation of mine probably has some relevance: "How glorious it is, and also how painful, to be an exception."- Alfred de Musset.

Here's a most ancient illustration I did way back in 1994 for a planned monster magazine that never came out. It's based on the wacky '50s movies of Bert I. Gordon, master of cheapo B&W spectacle and cheesy special FX. Featuring famed actor and drunkard Lon Chaney, Jr and mostly inspired by "The Cyclops" from 1957 (but if you look close there's lots of other B.I.G. references crammed in). I was happily picturing a Jack Davis-style career drawing for monster mags for myself while working on this but it wasn't to be. Thanks to David Lindsay for finding and returning the original art recently and commissioning this furshlugginer thing in the first place. I think there's already a scan of this somewhere in the archives of this blog but that one was scanned from a mediocre photocopy; here it is scanned from the original art for the first time. Stay tuned for MORE CYCLOPIAN ACTION!
