HAPPY BIRTHDAY BORIS KARLOFF!

The legendary BORIS KARLOFF was born on this day in 1887! The above image was something I did a while ago...it's the KARLOFF "Animagic" puppet from the classic Rankin/Bass movie, MAD MONSTER PARTY. It's brush, pen & ink on gray linen paper. The MAD MONSTER PARTY logo is hand-lettered. My pal, Karswell, who runs the blog THE HORRORS OF IT ALL, gave me the heads-up about Uncle Boris' birthday. If you haven't already, be sure to check out THE HORRORS OF IT ALL blog by clicking HERE! You can e-mail me at powsley@flash.net. Thanks! -- Patrick Owsley

HO: A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS COLORING BOOK





Here's a few pieces from one of my recent projects. Back at the end of July, I was hired by DAN FINNERTY of THE DAN BAND to create the cartoon illustrations for their new comedy Christmas music CD booklet. The booklet is called HO: A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS COLORING BOOK. There are 10 interior illustrations to be colored...each one representing a song on the CD. Each illustration is accompanied in the coloring book with the song's lyrics. The full-color coloring book cover is shown above with the coloring page art for the songs HO HO HO...CHRISTMAKWANZAKAH...GET DRUNK & MAKE OUT THIS CHRISTMAS and PLEASE DON'T BOMB NOBODY THIS HOLIDAY. I thought it would be fun to mimic Paul Coker, Jr.'s "Rankin/Bass" lettering style on the booklet's cover. Click here for THE DAN BAND's MySpace page...you can order the CD, HO: A DAN BAND CHRISTMAS, from their MySpace page! You'll see a banner to click on to order. Order today! THE DAN BAND is currently on tour and appeared in the feature films STARSKY & HUTCH (with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson) and OLD SCHOOL (with Will Ferrell). THANK YOU to DAN FINNERTY for the assignment! Click on each image for a larger view. Also...click on my Ebay art auctions link in my LINKS section to see my listing for all of THE DAN BAND CHRISTMAS COLORING BOOK original art.

TOM & JERRY - 1952 BENEFIT PROGRAM

Here's a great item from my files. It looks like the cover to an MGM Studio Club benefit dinner dance program from March 1952. I love how the stylized background images are designed around TOM & JERRY. Click on the image for a larger view!

BUGS BUNNY FIGURAL PRODUCT DESIGN

In an effort to get back to posting more often than I have been lately, I'm posting these front and back views of a BUGS BUNNY figural product design. I'm not exactly sure when this design was done. The yellow gloves on BUGS could date it back to the 1950s or early 1960s. Looks like this could be a really cool BUGS BUNNY vinyl figure today! This also gives me the chance to recommend the recently released LOONEY TUNES GOLDEN COLLECTION VOL. 5 DVD set! I just finished watching Disc 1 and really enjoyed seeing the General Foods commercials for Post Cereals and Tang featuring BUGS BUNNY! Pick up the DVD set today. Thanks! -- Patrick Owsley
