When I was a kid, like a really small kid, my babysitter was watching The Exorcist downstairs. When I came down to see what he was watching, I was confronted with the most terrifying thing I'd ever seen in my life. I'm not sure how long I watched it for, but it scared me for a long long time afterwards.
So I thought for today's challenge I'd combine it with something I loved as a kid (and still do actually), Garbage Pail Kids. Let's call it "therapy".

As if to rub salt into the wounds this isn't even a new drawing. I drew this for the Oz Comics weekly challenge a while back. But I haven't posted it here yet, so it kind of counts.
Luckily for me it fits the theme, because the Evil Dead movies were the tippity top of my gore lists as a young teen. I was actually quite obsessed with Horror movies as a young'n. So much so, my older brother (and his friends) thought I'd grow up to be a serial killer or some such. Sadly I think they were only half joking.
Of course I'm not a serial killer. But I still like the odd horror flick, stupid and bloody, though they are.To clarify, I've absolutely never killed anyone. Ever.
Looking forward to the new Evil Dead "Re-imagining" too. Groovy!

The first games console I owned was a Sega Mega Drive. Before that I'd only ever troubled the gaming world with a ZX Spectrum. So owning Mega Drive was like jumping from VHS straight to Blu Ray. Ok well maybe not quite. But the shear speed and colour and ball busting 32bit power of Sonic was like a revelation.
Thanks Sonic. Thonic

Snow White was one of the first movies I ever remember seeing at the cinema. Certainly the first animated one anyway. Dopey was my favourite, and he still manages to make my kids laugh even to this day.
Just goes to show, it doesn't matter what CGI jiggery pokery you throw at something. A funny character is funny character, no matter how you create it.

I used to draw Garfield a LOT at Primary School. Apparently I used to teach school friends how to draw him too. I say "apparently", because I don't actually remember doing that (sorry Karen). But then I don't seem to remember much of anything from early childhood (apart from TV and Films of course).
This one's for you then Karen :)
Also thanks to Adele (adelekthomas.blogspot.com.au/) for pointing out that "Fanuary" is actually a charity theme month where Ladies (and Gents) sculpt or colour their pubey regions into interesting designs all in the name of Cancer Research. It's actually all for a good cause so visit here http://www.fanuary.com/.
So out if respect for that and for not wanting to confuse people. I've changed my theme month to "Tributary" which is way more clever anyway and doesn't evoke images off downstairs bits :)

I absolutely LOVE the Garbage Pail Kids stickers. LOVE them. When I was a kid I wanted a job creating them, actually I still do. So I took a little extra time with this one, because I wanted it to look like an authentic GPK design. I even tracked down a post from a guy who made his own and very kindly supplied the eps logo and the font for the names. In an extra geeky twist, I put my own face in there and fulfilled another fantasy while I was at it.
Plus, in true GPK style, I created a a "B" named card to keep with tradition.
