Hallowe'en is fast approaching! Anyone that has followed my blog here for a while knows that I think it's the cat's pajamas. Fall is easily my favorite time of the year.


I did have some big things planned, but had to hold back on them due to some other matters of importance. As always though, there will be a Ghostbusters piece, maybe even two...or three more. Above you will see Vinz, who just possessed Louis Tully. Apparently many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you. Here is also a detail of one of the upcoming pieces.


I did a pin up for Udon's Street Fighter Tribute book, which came out at the San Diego Con this past summer. I was humbled to be asked to participate, as I have always had a soft spot for the first few SF games on the SNES. Had to roll with Blanka on this one. Never liked Ken, so he got the brunt of the electric attack. I'm also selling official prints of this. Each print is 8x10, and comes with a quick sketch of your favorite SF character. All that for only $15!


I cannot express enough how important this next subject is to not only me, but to every person on this planet. Consider for a moment, a "Revolution of consciousness." I have a firm belief in the good of humanity, and the endless possibilities of the human spirit. I'm not a religious person, or a person that is quick to accept any given knowledge. I question everything. I recommend everyone who reads this to take some time out from whatever you are doing right now, and watch this video; Zeitgeist: Addendum Part 1. Please watch all 13 videos, and sincerely question what is important to you as a human, and what you want out of life. There is so much more than what we have now, and all we need to do is remember who we are. I'm sure you have heard the news about the US economy, and it will only get worse. Once the US falls into possibly the worst depression in the known history, it will send aftershocks throughout the world, affecting everyone. John Lennon's lyrics in these songs describe two things. 1) What we are now, and 2) What we can aspire to be if we truly believe in ourselves. It's time to wake up

Sincerely,

Dapper

Hi, I love your work! How much would you charge for a high-res image of one of your ghostbusters graphics? I've just moved in to a new apartment and I want to put one up on the wall if you'll let me?

I watched Zeitgeist: Addendum about a week ago and it is definitely a heavy hitter. It certainly makes a person want to throw off the shackles of debt and become Amish.
Oh, and also ...Ghostbusters rocks!
