Lord Quas Strikes Again

This looks to be from Spain or someplace, not too sure. But the Quas character has been given some sort of illicit substance, which isnt surprising. An earlier post of a similar sighting appeared along the West Bank somewhere:

This Is For Suckers-M.C. Groove

 About as close to rock stardom as I would ever get was a recent discover of an old graffiti piece of mine in a music video. This relic just popped up, thanks to Kutmasta Kurt. It features MC Groove, a Santa Cruz rapper who had a few singles released back in 1989-1990. A schoolmate and producer friend of mine, Cesar Badillo shot all of this about 2 blocks away from our high school, and actually submitted it for a final project:

41st Street Forever2

Something I've been coming across lately are the endless reels of old movie trailers lurking around YouTube. Some of these are for movies I can't believe someone actually made but, they do in fact exist. There's a great DVD series called '41st Street' in 4. Below are some of the notables.

Fay,  was embedded with the Marines throughout the Iraq and Afghani wars. He's recently published a compilation of stories by returning veterans called 'Home Fires. Check out some of the illustrations:

Screen Titles Evolution

Since the early days of cinema, artists have carefully designed film titles to captivate audiences and set the film’s mood. To bring attention to this often overlooked art form, Dutch graphic designer (and movie lover) Christian Annyas has put together The Movie Title Stills Collection. The website collects and neatly organizes film titles by decade, from the 1920’s to present. To illustrate how film titles have evolved over the years, we've chosen some of our favorites from the collection.

With 6 You Get Eggroll

This is the title sequence from that Doris Day movie from 1969. I saw this on a TV on in a bar of all places, and had to have a closer look. I'm not sure who made this title sequence (I doubt it's Saul Bass) but it's definitely inspired by the man.

The best part about this is it turns out to be George Carlin's film debut!

1985 Volume 3 Page 26

A rough sketch version that went on to be inked and shaded. The pencils of this page exist as small eraser rubbings in a trash bin somewhere, but, here was about when I'd completed pencils:
