made this wonderful drawing of "Willard the Witch" and "Opey the Warhead":
I admire Pino Rinaldi immensely. He was kind enough to write the foreword to the Italian Edition of "Opey the Warhead" and now he's drawn Opey. What an amazing gift. Thank you, Pino, from the bottom of my heart.
Meanwhile, tagged me in his journal. I have to answer the following questions:
1. If you could pick any superhero power, what would it be?
X-ray vision. Guess why.
2. What is the best artwork you've done?
3. What is the worst artwork you've done?
Strange fact is I have a hard time looking at my own art without cringing. So, I'd have to say almost all of it. But here's a good candidate:
4. Do you own a smartphone?
I don't own any phone.
5. What cartoons do you find inspiring?
There have been many cartoons that inspired me but probably the number one would have to be "The Real Ghostbusters". It left an enormous imprint on my mind stylistically and had a wonderful fusion of American design and Japanese animation. The look of the cartoon was a blend of realism and cartoonyness (if that was a real word). Plus, it had some cool looking monsters. Other cartoons that I found inspiring were "Ducktales" and "Batman: The Animated Series" but I suppose I'm showing my age now.
6. What cartoons make you roll your eyes?
Anything done in Flash. While Flash animation has its usefulness in animation and is a great way for a person who has no budget or a team of animators at his disposal, there's no excuse for big animation companies using it to animate the whole cartoon show, I feel.
7. Coffee or Tea?
I can't stand coffee, so I'd have to go with tea (although I rarely drink the latter).
8. Is there a film you love to watch over and over?
"Ghostbusters" or "The Evil Dead 2".
9. Do you feel lucky? Well do ya?
Shoot. I never do.
10. What is one thing you would improve about yourself?
Now, to tag some others:
1. You must post these rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you, and create new questions for the people you tag to answer.
3. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal
4. Go to their pages and tell them you have tagged her/him.
5. No tag backs.
6. No crap in the tagging section about "you are tagged if you're reading this."
1. What's the strangest dream you've ever had that you are comfortable telling?
2. Who's the most beautiful person you've ever seen?
3. What's the first movie you've ever seen in a theater?
4. If you could live in any time, what would it be?
5. Who do you think the most overrated musician alive today is?
6. What's your favorite drink?
7. What's your favorite kind of weather?
8. If you could put one kind of curse or hex on any person, what would it be?
9. Is Pluto a planet or a moon?
10. If you could be in any movie, what would it be?
