My Super Mario collage was feeling lonely, especially since I sold Bowser, so I gave him a brother. Here is Luigi, 24×24″ made of a bunch of random comic books, Wizard magazine, and some other random papery things, like a box of Goobers from the movie theatre from November when I took the family to […]Read More I’ma Luigi, Numbah One!
Lemmy Koopa is named after the iconic frontman of metal rockers Motörhead. Apparently, most of the Koopalings are named after famous musicians, from Beethoven to Roy Orbison. The more the you know… Also, in my research for this 24×24″ collage (comics, magazines, a movie ticket to the new Ghostbusters movie*), I learned that the seven Koopalings (Lemmy, […]Read More Lemmy; Ghostbusters chatter

So I left them to be, not quite as creative as I intended, and moved onto the next thing… the next thing being this interpretation of […]Read More Rampage Royal Court
The first portion of my Punch-Out project is completed, and you can see the finished watercolors (including the Tyson you see above) of all 11 characters from the original 1987 NES game here. So much more to say, and even more to do until these are ready to go, but this is a good, sharable […]Read More Phase I: Punch-Out Project
I’ma Luigi! Numba one! This guy would fit in ANYWHERE in Essex, Bergen or Passaic counties.Here’s his brother, Mario, created in Week 1, who was the badass of the day for either #5, 6 or 7, the three days I didn’t post here. (I did have creations for each of those days: Here’s one of […]Read More Badass New Jersey: Day #14
