First Papino&Diana Fan Art

Admire this lovely drawing done by a dear artsy friend of mine! It shows (...guess who...) yeah, Milo and Diana, and Lykaios-Garou couldn't choice a better situation to interpret the relationship between Papino and his Diana;

As you can see, Papino's attention is deviated, as usual, on an old flame of!!
I just enjoyed both Milo's and Diana's expressions... Lykaios actually did a fine job at drawing my charachters on her own style!

Ol' Papino, Food is just his reason to live...but what about Diana?!

Notice nothing in common with Hello Spank?

Anyone needs to drees?

Evidently that day I hadn't nothing better to do than this... and oh, I even found a robust and frendly model who wore my creation at the end!

If you are wondering how this craze happen, the word is just one:

In the Shopping section I had the chance to test a customization editor in order to personalise T-shirts, calendars, mugs and so on... with a particular picture, and than order it via mail!
My impression: this programm really runs, it's useful and practicall, the idea at the base is simple but creative... everyone can customize an item according to everything... so why not play on it for while?

It took just save a picture of Mickey Mouse and add in the editor another pic of mine, than arrange dimensions, colors, writes... just choose the model of shirt you want, and at the end see the final work realised, and ready to be worn like a must-have wear of the latest spring/summer collection;

Wonder who's going to buy this stuff...? xD I know some folks who would do it for sure!

This is going to daze you...

This sketch astonished my mind too...but how couldn't it? Perhaps is the plain art of Tom McKimson or something else? Don't know actually, but I had to post this sketch here... finally the secret around Bugs Bunny's name is revealed...and I warmly invite you to follow the rest of the story on Thad K's blog

I just love too much those kinds of comic stories, in particular when they are preety old and are connected to such well-known cartoon charachters, like George Washington Bunny;

First of all, as many will note, those stories are totally at the opposite from the cartoons we used to watch: the charachters react in a different way facing different situations, most of them from "everyday life", and if those plots were going to being animated, they just would result disconnected from the spirit of the original cartoon;

Secondly: those are a piece of history! by studying them, we can have a general vision of how life style in the 40's, 50's and so on was... note that in many of these comic books, the intent of the authors was to create "educative but also fun" material, since the readers of them were young people...

How is evident the recall to the american history (in this case, George Washington) combined with a vein of genuine of semi-humorless comic comedy (a naive Baby Bugs as never seen)? in few words...

Patriotism + Exchange Situation of the Main Charachter= a plot for a 1945's Bugs Bunny Story

I'd write a lot about this issue, despite I'm not so expert about it, but it'd be good if more old style comic stories with those charachters would be uploaded on the web for the Joy of us comic-fans! in the Meanwhile, thank you to all the great people who share these treasures!
