"Captain CAAAAAAAVEMAAAAAAAAANNNN!!!!" Another one of my favorites as a kid. Sorry to all, I've been swamped with other artistic duties and have fallen behind on my usual Thursday bit. Hopefully this strikes a cord out there for all you cartoon finatics. Captain Caveman's powers include super-strength, a variety of useful objects hidden inside his fur, and a club that allows him to fly and from which pops out different tools he uses to fight crime (Genius). And who might you say are the lovely ladies flanking to the left and right of Mr. Cavey there? The Teen Angels of course. Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels (1977–1980) was a Saturday morning cartoon created by Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions. It was originally broadcast on ABC as part of the programming block Scooby's All-Star Laff-a-Lympics, which also included Scooby-Doo, Dynomutt, Dog Wonder, and Laff-A-Lympics.

I was sketching dogs in my book and this fellow wondered out of my pencil. I started with this really cool shape, then I added the character to it. The hard part was turning it into an image that told some sort of story. I added an awkward arm and tried to figure out what to put in his hand. Oddly enough it ended up being a pair of tidey whiteys, his face followed through in response. I pictured him as a perverted panty sniffing puppy who'd ended up scrapping the bottom of the barrel. After searching high and low this was all he could find. The question is, will his canine urges allow him to take pleasure in sniffing a pair of DIRTY DRAWLS? (his bowtie says no, but the canine screams YES!)
Another Panty sniffing Pooch study.

Here is my official version of the "TRANSPLANT" flyer for the gallery show I'm part of in March. The original piece is hand painted with acrylics, paint stick and pencil.(7.5x14 inches) I'll probably be posting pics of me working on various pieces throughout this month. so keep checking back.
This was my alternative version...

Sorry that I've been slacking on the throwbacks. I've been working on a few freelance projects aside from catching a cold. Anyway, here's a freelance reject that was never used. They asked for a fairytale land with a castle in the background. The client liked my style, so I figured I wouldn't draw just any plain old castle. In the end I think he was too much for the client. I think all fairytale castles should look like that. lol.
