I’ve loved this movie for YEARS. So quotable it was almost impossible to narrow it down to only 6 panels.One thing was for sure, the FUCKING GOLF SHOES!! would be in it. This was a commission from when we did our first Kickstarter for FUBAR 2.
Another commission for a good friend and collaborator, Jeff McLelland. I hadn’t watched this since I was a peanut and I had forgotten how funny it was. Very happy with the finished product. Jeff pointed out to mee that Al was only 29 when we wrote, starred AND directed this flick, Jeff also assisted on the lettering of this short.
We offered Six panel cinema rewards for our FUBAR volume 2 Kickstarter campaign. This is the first one I’ve gotten to and I had a blast illustrating it. Michael McDermott selected for his reward: True Romance and I’m glad he did. This is on my top 10 favorite movies list. A superb cast with a few cameos that don’t steal the show, but they up the ante pretty hard.I’ve watched it on repeat all day as I crafted this piece and it’s still ringing my bell. Stay tuned for the next four:)
Very excited to post the first Six Panel Cinema that I didn’t do myself. Jeremiah Johnson is done by Mr. Steve Willhite. Steve is an illustrator I’ve worked with on more than one occassion and his work never dissapoints. He knocked this one out of the park. Letters by Mr. Scott St. Pierre.
I have a lot of favorite movies. This movie sits proudly at the top of that long list. Kelly’s Heroes is my kind of flick. It is for me the perfect storm of movie awesomeness. Telly Savalas. Don Rickles. Donald Sutherland. Clint fucking Eastwood in World War II robbing Nazi banks. You can’t beat it. Very quotable and coming from a guy that just watched it about ten times in a row, it is highly rewatchable.
I know how much fun it is to create characters and often find myself enjoying certain characters more than the pieces of fiction that they are a part of. One of my all time favorite characters is Donald Sutherland as Sgt. Oddball. I chose to follow him for this Six Panel Cinema. I won’t bore you with anymore details of how bad ass this flick is suffice to say if you haven’t seen it yet, you need to get on that.
I loved the Godfather from the first time I rented that grainy VHS and popped it in. What has kept me rewatching is not only the exceptional supporting cast, but the guys that support them. You’ll notice that there are no Corleones (except for tiny, bullet riddled Sonny) in this page. I may do one featuring nothing but Corleones in the future but for now I celebrate the guy who put the horse’s head in Jack Woltz’s bed. The goon, the gunsel, and all the other torpedos that keep the syndicate rolling, this one’s for them.
