Dead Charlie and Zombie Bob vs. The Zombie Brothers

A few years ago, I wrote and illustrated a short story called "Dead Charlie and Zombie Bob", which I first posted in Aug 2011 here:

It was featured in the horror comic anthology "Dark Mischief volume 2" available here:

Recently, an animated short was produced for Nick called "The Zombie Brothers", and the character designs look awfully familiar…

Loving tribute, blatant ripoff, or mere coincidence? (I'm guessing the latter).

I'm going to let this one go. The short is funny and well animated. I wish the creators the best of luck
 (but if they ever make Zombie Brother action figures, I'd love a set…)

Muppet Madness 2013 Tournament winner

The 2013 Muppet Madness Tournament is over and the winner just happens to be my favorite Muppet, Rowlf.
I was asked by Steve Swanson, who heads the tournament to create art celebrating the winner. I did the art for the final two contestants, as seen in the post below, and so I decided to stick with the boxing theme, and do it in the style of the famous Rocky movie posters.

2013 Muppet Madness Tournament poster

This is a fun picture I did for Steve Swanson. He runs the Muppet-related podcast Muppetcast and organizes the annual Muppet Madness Tournament.

 "The Tournament is a parody of the NCAA March Madness Tournament, in which selected Muppet characters face off and advance in rounds, based on fans' online voting support. Muppet Madness begins on March 19, the same day as the NCAA tournament, and concludes on April 8, when the Muppet Madness Champion will be named."

The poster is of course based on old boxing posters. I was provided with the Muppet Madness logo and the final two contestants. I drew the characters and made up the rest of the text myself. Eagle-eyed Muppet fans will notice several inside jokes on the poster.
