Pah Pah Pah-Leeease, Not Patty Cake


My piece for the 80s POP! Gallery show.

I was in such a tough bind deciding on what to pick for my piece. Considering so much grade A awesomeness came from that decade. I pondered for days until I decided to go with the classic "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?". I grew up with him over the years and I've been a big fan ever since. Plus, it came out on the year I was born! Bonus points.

I picked the "patty cake" scene. Just the thought of cartoon's exploding after drinking alcohol was a funny idea, hell, the idea of "patty cake" known to cartoons point of view is a funny idea. The scene was so chaotic and emotional. Totally fun to draw, I had to get every detail from the scene in this.

Man. Judge Doom freaked me out when I was a kid. That squeaky voice. *shudders*

Come over to my blog, Purple Peep Bits to see some "In Progress" sketches and inks!
