lions, tigers, and jack lawrence!


one of the things that craig and i found as we asked our friends if they would be into doing a perhapanauts pin-up (or as luke has now tagged them, perhapinups! : ) is that everyone is drawn immediately to big and choopie. i suppose that there's more freedom for interpretation with those two and we certainly didn't want to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't draw, but for a while there it looked like we were going to have just a "big and choopie" gallery for the book.
either way, they all ROCK--both the artists and the pin-ups--and we couldn't be happier!

so i met jack lawrence on myspace.
i think he saw my name in ringo's friends, asked to be my friend, and i 'e'd him back telling him how much i really dug his stuff and that i'd LOVED his book (with Mike Bullock), LIONS, TIGERS, and BEARS! and i wasn't kiddin'! mike had suggested it to me a few years back--we are always on the lookout for good, fun comics, and especially fantasy, and especially talking animal fantasy...

if you like those things too--and i know ya do--go get a copy and enjoy the ride!

so jack says he dug tellos and was diggin' on the perhapanauts and if we should ever need a pin-up and i said, damn, maybe for the next trade 'cause it looks like we've already got too many for this one and he says okay and then a few days later he says, mate, i just couldn't wait ('cause he's british and they say that...) and he sent over this awesome piece!

thanks, jack!
it's gorgeous!

Jack's pinup is awesome. I love his work.

OK Trivia time....
1) Spoken by Perry White to Lois and Clark in Superman. Actor = ????

2) Chunk from Goonies. I don't know the actor again. But, his confession speech when he's tied up is one of the funniest monologues in movies.

3) Older Ralphie (VO) in A Christmas Story. Jean Sheppard read the voice-over in that movie.

4) ----

5) ----

This trivia game is fun. Do more movie quotes, Todd.
