In 1972 NASA launched the "Jupiter Plaque", an engraved tablet depicting life on Earth and our location in the cosmos, for any intelligent life that may come across it.
The Los Angles Times asked several prominent artists to draw what they would have put on the plaque and why. To the surprise of everyone, Kirby the futurist and visionary drew two superbeings, a man and a woman, that would scare away potential conquerors. Suggesting to intelligent life that everyone on Earth are Supermen. This was his explanation:
"I see no wisdom in the eagerness to be found and approached by any intelligence with the ability to accomplish it from any sector of space. In the meetings between ‘discoverers’ and ‘discoverees’, history has always given the advantage to the finders. In the case of the Jupiter Plaque, I feel that a tremendous issue was thoughtlessly taken out of the world forum by a few individuals who have marked a clear trail to our door. My point is who will come-a-knocking, the trader or the tiger?"

    Marvel by Moebius.

    A great artist can take a classic design and make it their own while keeping the essence intact. Moebius was definitely one of the greats.

Bubble Bobble was the first game I ever played in the arcades and it pretty much decided what my career was going to be. So I thought I’d try out some Taito inspired characters. There’s 100 all up :)

  10. But what does this Revolution achieve?
    Freedom?
    Peace?
    Equality?

    Sometimes when you’re working on a trailer, you think ‘this’ll make amazing gifs’. And then you find out you’re right.

    "Chucky Vane" (click photos to embiggen)

    Please understand:

    • I do not own a sewing machine.  This was stitched entirely by hand.
    • I did not have a pattern.  I made this by trial and error.
    • Before this project, I had never sewn anything more complicated than a button.
    • I started working on this in JANUARY.  It took me SIX MONTHS.
    • Because of all this, he is stuffed with 100% pure profanity.

    I don’t know if anyone remembers the “Child’s Play” movies, but that’s why I’m calling him “Chucky”.  :P
