The Right Arm of Voltron

Red Lion

Monday, November 1, 2010


Well, I've started it up again—for real. After taking the Summer (and part of the Fall) off from my blog, I think it's time I get back to my goal and promise.
I'm about 2/3 the way through the color category of red, so in exactly one month I'll be halfway through the journey—even though I technically started this blog a year ago. I think Cartman's expression says it all: "Dude. You can't leave it like this…seriously."
Cartman, not only has a red jacket but also sports a furious angry streak leaving him blood red in the face. The pathetic sprawl of drawing utensils abandoned in front of him is enough motivation for me to keep going.

Whoop, whoop, whoop…

I can't forget about Dr. Zoidberg—the reddest character on Futurama. Talk to the claw…

Beware the Dark Side

When pictures of the villain from the first Star Wars prequel the Phantom Menace were released I was blown away by the design and presence of the character. Too bad I wasn't as blown away by the movie. Quite an iconic character though.

For some reason I loved this character. I think he's the reason for my Dominos brand loyalty.

Huey and Louie

Duck Tales was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. Huey is featured in the foreground because of his red shirt and hat. I decided to include Louie in the background seeing as I had forgotten him during the green period of this blog.

"So, kiss a little longer, stay close a little longer…"

"…Hold tight a little longer—longer with Big Red!" It always tasted really good for the first few seconds. I'm not a big fan of cinnamon gum but Big Red is the exception.

"Alright you Decepti-creeps…"

Cliffjumper has yet to make a film debut in the Transformers, but was always one of my favorite characters in the cartoon series. He was voiced by Casey Kasem. He was also one of the only Transformer toys I had as a kid.

His Name is Gossamer

In case you were wondering (like I was). Anyway, I really liked the way his arms would disappear when they weren't outstretched. They just blend into his body. Genius!

Thursday, May 20, 2010

He's Flexible.

I don't know. Something funny to me about Plastic Man carrying cash.

Yia Yia's Jell-O

I have been having cravings for Jell-O lately. My grandmother used to make me red Jell-O all the time— from ages 0-25. I haven't had any in a long while.

Tuesday, May 18, 2010


I had a lot of fun drawing this one. I couldn't remember if Hellboy had "human" ears or if he had any fangs so I asked LaVonne to look it up and give me a hint. I had to render him in the likeness of the Mike Mignola style though I did put in some of my own styling.

It was recently brought to my attention that it wasn't clear that the drawings on this blog are rendered from memory (I only used a reference for a few of them). Now that I've gotten through almost a third of the project, I've started to notice (looking back) that my rendering of characters is based upon the style of the original and not my own interpretation.

La, la, la-la-la-la…La, la, la-la

My sister used to hog the t.v. for Saturday morning cartoons (even though she denies it!) and she'd subject me to the Smurfs. Here's Papa Smurf.
