Huckleberry Hero Hump-Day

The Blue Devil
Space Ghost


Hey Everyone, it's more mid-week madness with our blue-furred Hero.
First up Huck portrays DC Comics stuntman turned super-hero, The Blue Devil.
And then he ventures over to the super-hero department of The Hanna-Barbera Studios and dons the uniform of their most famous adventurer, Space Ghost.

Look! Up in the Sky!


"A Visitor to Pittsburgh"

The Man of Steel comes to The Steel City.
I did this piece like an animation set-up. The picture of Pittsburgh is from an old calender and Superman is done like a traditional animation cel, outlined in ink on one side and painted with opaque paints on the other. I then put the cel over the picture for the finished piece.
This was a fun one to do.

Happy Birthday USA



Huckleberry Hero Hump-Day

Secret Squirrel


The Invisible Man

Hello all, this week Huck does some sleuthing and then does some hiding...in plain sight.
First Huck goes undercover as Hanna-Barbera's super spy, Secret Squirrel. As you can see Ol' Huckleberry needed help with the tail. Luckily he had an old fur coat from his college days in the attic.
Then our blue-furred hero blends into the shadows as he portrays the classic character from H.G. Wells great novel, The Invisible Man.
