It's been a week since my last blog posting...too long! I've been busy with a couple of new projects. One of them is illustrating a DASTARDLY & MUTTLEY video game cover. Blast! Entertainment in the U.K. is producing the game. I'm posting the detail of DICK DASTARDLY from the game cover's pencil rough. I don't want to show the entire cover just yet...I'll post the finished color cover art later. Thanks to Joanne Wenn at Blast! and David Cohen at Warner Bros. for a fun project!

Here's a recent DVD cover project that I did for East West DVD of Brooklyn, NY and North Hollywood, CA. It's JAY WARD's HOPPITY HOOPER! Also shown in the art are HOPPITY's pals, UNCLE WALDO and FILLMORE BEAR. I did the art for a public domain release of HOPPITY HOOPER cartoons. I'm not sure when this DVD volume will be released. It was fun to do these great JAY WARD characters! You can e-mail your thoughts and comments about my blog to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks! - Patrick Owsley

My wife Leslie and I want to wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day! Here's our favorite little devil, HOT STUFF, showing some love! I did this HOT STUFF piece today in honor of Valentine's Day.

HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY! - Patrick Owsley

Check out the new FUNKO website at http://funko.com/. Looks like there is a lot of great new Funko product! Some of my favorites are the new MAD MONSTER PARTY Series 2 figures and the 20" HUCKLEBERRY HOUND Wacky Wobbler Coin Bank. Brian Mariotti and his Funko staff are doing outstanding work! Speaking of HUCKLEBERRY HOUND...here's a couple of HUCK HOUND licensing character art pieces. I inked the art for Hanna-Barbera licensing at Warner Bros. Consumer Products. Hanna-Barbera artist Mark Christiansen penciled the HUCK HOUND art. Feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com . Thanks! - Patrick Owsley

Since it's still very "frosty" in many parts of the U.S., I thought I'd post a few pieces of FROSTY's WINTER WONDERLAND licensing character art. FROSTY's WINTER WONDERLAND was produced by Rankin/Bass Productions. The 1976 TV special starred the voice talents of Andy Griffith, Shelly Winters and Paul Frees. FROSTY's WINTER WONDERLAND is the cel animated sequel to Rankin/Bass' 1969 FROSTY THE SNOWMAN. I inked this art for Warner Bros. Consumer Products using brush & ink. The art was penciled by Mike Fontanelli based on the great Paul Coker, Jr. character designs. For more Rankin/Bass, be sure to check out Rankin/Bass biographer and historian Rick Goldschmidt's blog at http://www.enchantedworldofrankinbass.blogspot.com/. Click on each image to enlarge!

Here's something I did late last year. It's BUTCHY BOY from the 1960s BOZO THE CLOWN TV cartoons. I believe the late great Ed Benedict designed BUTCHY for the cartoons produced by Larry Harmon Pictures Corp. This piece is 5" x 7". It's markers, brush & ink, colored pencil and cel vinyl paint on coquille board. You can e-mail your comments about my blog to me at email@example.com .
