'Scuse me while I whip this out

For our latest styles and concepts project, we needed to do something around the 2008 election. Originally I had planned on doing a portrait of the Bush family as the characters from the TV series, "Dallas" but then I was told that G.W. was not interesting anymore. SO I threw Obama into the Mel Brooks comedy "Blazing Saddles." It is a story about the first african american sheriff in the town of Rock Ridge....seems close enough to reality for me.

Oh, Gosh! It's Bat Day!

On the final Sunday of every August, goth kids flock to Disneyland for the celebration of Bat Day. For some reason, in December of 2002, Chuck Klosterman decided to write an article about it.
Here is a black and white illustration that goes along with that article.

The characters and logos and locations and pretty much everything in this picture are the property of Disney.
