Earlier today, aspiring comic book artist Chris Hunt delivered this tale of bemused exasperation to my digital postal receptacle:
A while ago, I came across a drawing I had done of Dr Doom in High School, so I thought I’d go ahead and ink it and color it in PS for sng’s. A few days ago, I came across a pic from a guy know only as “guitar_hero_chubs” in my [Flickr] comments, that was my EXACT drawing only tattooed on this guys leg. I was somewhere between freaked out, pissed off and flattered. Duder wants me to draw him a Darth Vader one for his other leg now that I’ve talked to him. But not just any Vader mind you, Vader as illustrated by Ralph McQuarrie. It would seem this guy has some penchant for putting armor clad villains on his pasty calves.
First, cheers to Chris for the use of “duder.” You are owning 2003, and I love it.
Second, join me in a little exercise. Paint a mental picture of the guy whose screen name is “guitar_hero_chubs,” and then tell me it doesn’t look something like this guy.
