More BARRIS event photos!

Here's a few more photos from the March 23 GEORGE BARRIS street naming event. It was nice that BATMAN, ROBIN, BATGIRL and CATWOMAN attended the ceremony! Also in attendance was BO DEREK, PATRICK WAYNE, ERIK ESTRADA, voice-over actor WALLY WINGERT and BUTCH "Eddie Munster" PATRICK. BUTCH was kind enough to pose for a photo with me, which I've posted. KNBC's FRITZ COLEMAN was Master of Ceremonies. MARK LONDON, a terrific graphic designer and friend (Brian Wilson, Hal Lifson's 1966 book), was also there. Check out Mark's blog at Mark has a few of his photos of the event posted. E-mail me at . Thanks! - Patrick Owsley

GEORGE BARRIS street naming event photos!

Here's a few photos from the George Barris street naming event. The event took place March 23 at Barris Kustom City in North Hollywood, CA. A small side street next to the Barris shop was renamed George Barris Place. It was great to see Mr. Barris recognized for his sensational work in the entertainment industry! Some of the "kustom" cars that George Barris built include the 1966 TV BATMOBILE...THE MUNSTERS KOACH...THE STARSKY & HUTCH Gran Torino and he collaborated with Dean Jeffries on THE MONKEEMOBILE. That's Mr. Barris and I in this posting's top photo. Thanks! -- Patrick Owsley

DASTARDLY & MUTTLEY video game cover art

Here's the cover art for a new soon-to-be-released DASTARDLY & MUTTLEY video game. The game is being produced by Blast Entertainment in the U.K. Thanks to David Cohen at Warner Bros. and Joanne Wenn at Blast Entertainment for the fun job! I pencilled and inked the art, then did the color design. The art was colored by Jeff Victor. Thanks, Jeff! I had to leave plenty of room in the top and bottom areas for the "DASTARDLY & MUTTLEY Operation: Pigeon Pursuit" logo, the Blast Entertainment logo, rating boxes and the WB shield. Click on the image to enlarge! Be sure to check out my MySpace page -- -- I have many samples of my cartoon art in my "Pics" section. Take a look! Contact me at . Thanks! -- Patrick Owsley

Leslie and I are back from our honeymoon! In the top photo, we're boarding our cruise ship in Los Angeles on March 5. We sailed aboard Royal Caribbean's Monarch of the Seas to Ensenada, Mexico with stops in San Diego and Catalina Island. Leslie and I had a great time! The bottom photo is us at dinner during the ship's formal evening.

More from the HANNA-BARBERA file!

Here's a piece from 1998. I took one of the many sensational pieces of black and white FLINTSTONES character art by the great designer, Craig Kellman, and gave it some color. It's done with markers and colored pencils on marker paper. I'll be back at the end of this week with another post. Click on the image for a larger view! My wife Leslie and I are finally going on our honeymoon! We're taking a cruise from Los Angeles to Ensenada, with stops at Catalina Island and in San Diego.
