devilpig* yea, bizarre how two artists can see the same image in an obscure 60's porno mag and come up w/ the same design. only one problem........ it wasn't from a mag! shane took the photo himself of a friend.
thanks guys*... my wife asks that you quit feeding my ego tho. she's getting a little sick of me running around the apartment in my under-oos screaming 'i am invinceable'.
ok, in all seriousness, thank you all. it really means alot to get these kinds of compliments from people i deeply admire.
*the scrojo-coop thing*
i kno that there are definetely mixed feelings about coop here but, for the record, i am a huge fan and admirer of his. i have no idea what the man is like personally but his art has had a huge influence on me. his understanding of anatomy and weight distribution ( no pun) are things i still aspire to. i also admire the fact that he went forward and did the 'biggie' girls that he wanted when there had to be commercial pressure to keep pumping out the 'ideal devil-girls'. not exactly my taste but i know he's made el negro fantastico very happy.
*the book of scrojo*
damn.....obviously i'd be beyond stoked to have a book. i do have '85' pieces but i think i'd want to wait a few months and try and knock out some really top-notch posters. even tho i've been doing flyers since '86 i think it's only been since january that i hit my stride. plus i'd like to try and get some cd covers under my belt as well. *frank* if you have any connection i'd be really greatful ( not suck hairy-butt greatful but pretty damn close) if you could pass on my email and a good word.
thanks hampton* the dan clowes influence isn't too obvious.... is it? this is one of the 'old' belly up posters i picked up this week for 'the art of the b.u.t' exibit. some really scarey stuff. i'll try and post more of my 'dirty little secrets' later this week.
