Nobody owns anything. Coop used him in a bizarre way a long time before before me. Imagine somebody during the Renaissance going, "What the fuck? You're painting Cupid?! Bitch, I own Cupid, I painted him like two years ago." We don't have a wellspring of stories and myths that everyone knows anymore (hell, not even the Bible. Most people won't even get a Garden of Eden reference). Stuff like Don Knotts and Gene Simmons is the shit we pull from as it's all that we can communicate with.
I like the tat.
i knew i was treading a bit of water- we obviously used the same source photo for the head...and like i said i had this idea a year and a half ago... i was hoping it was different enough, but i guess i was wrong. though not done on purpose, ill admit error if it's too close. i did keep his in mind the whole time, in not wanting it to be close to it- my fault for not studying his other posters.
yeah, i know rob did one too for turbonegro...and is way better than this. but ive had this art laying around for a yar and a half since the poster class when we had to use don knotts. i redid the illustration and put it to some us. much respect to rob.
