Hey gang! I just watched the movie "Ghost Rider" yesterday with some friends, and although I heard it was bad, I held out hope. I mean, a guy with a flaming skull riding a black devil motorcycle is one one of the coolest, most cinematic images I can think of. How bad could it be? Here's my two word movie review: Turd Sandwich.
But, it inspired me to do my rendition of Johnny Blaze as a Bubblehead, with a little 'Akira' homage thrown in for good measure! Hope ya like!

I've gotten many requests to do Bubblehead Hellboy, so here ya go, gang! Not sure what kind of alien creature he's fighting, but it's nasty, whatever it is. In case you were missing Bubblehead Star Wars, don't worry. The next one will be a SW creature. Hint: they're very tasty! Have a great night!

I just want to say thank you to all of you who blogged about Wicked Crispy this week. It's a huge honor and I'm very grateful. Check out a few samples of what folks are saying about Bubbleheads:
Thanks guys, and be sure to keep stopping back for more art updates!

King Kong-the greatest monster movie ever made. I love this film. Seeing it as a kid really inspired me to take an interest in fantasy films and special effects. It still holds up marvelously well today. (King Kong vs. Godzilla? Not so much.) Peter Jackson's Kong was great too, in it's own way, but nothing can replace the original. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Hey everyone! Here's a fresh Star Wars Bubblehead duel between Darth Maul and Obi Wan. As I watched this scene I remember thinking that lightsaber fighting had never seemed faster or more exciting. Sadly, Lucas didn't bring back a robotic Maul in Revenge of the Sith, so, sadly, we're left with a character much like Boba Fett in the original trilogy: Looks great, but goes out like a puss. Oh well. Hope ya like the drawing.
PS. Lots more stuff comin!
Sorry, cheap shot. No, it's the Pale Man from one of the best movies I've seen so far this year: Pan's Labyrinth. As far as Guillermo del Toro's movies go, I didn't think it was possible to top the Devil's Backbone- but somehow he did. You rarely see a mix of fantasy and reality work so well on screen as you do in this movie. And let's face it- who can forget the grotesque Pale Man, played brilliantly by Doug Jones.
I will continue to do Star Wars characters, but I'm going to throw in a couple curve balls from time to time...hope you like. And please, leave lots of comments. I love hearing what you're digging, what you would like to see more of, less of, etc. Let me hear from you!
Hey guys. This is a job I recently completed with my talented friend Patrick Owsley. He designed these characters for a company called Food For Life and I assisted by doing the coloring. A big thanks to Patrick for the assignment. It was a lot of fun!

A big tip of the hat to the awesome guys at Drawn! for including Wicked Crispy on their blog. I've long been a reader of their site, and if you've never heard of it--you're missing out on some of the most brilliant and inspiring illustrators/designers out there. You can check it out here--- Drawn! Thanks again, guys! I'm really honored! And, PS. Stay tuned for Admiral Ackbar... :)
Today's Bubblehead update is a sandperson, or "Tusken Raider" to Star Wars fans. Gotta love those outfits--and I'm glad Lucas didn't reveal what they looked like under the wrappings. Too much mystery was ruined by the prequels, and I'm glad he showed a little restraint here. That said, hope ya like!
