The Great Pumpkin War of 1966


I recently worked up this piece for a Saturday Morning Cartoon show at the Hyanea Gallery in Burbank celebrating 60s cartoons. Bill likes art to have some weird twist so I worked in a lil Dubbya Dubbya Eleven in there for good measure.

Art from the Hyaena gallery show

The show opening was a hoot, and this was sold. We played music and shook a leg out front of the gallery.

Beany & Cecil 27th anniversary - give or take



The top image is the title card for one of the first and only episodes to make it on the air. Illustration, I seem to remember, by Bruce Timm. John K really did most of the directing I was more of an assistant director, though he was kind enough to give me credit.
