The first of the fusion prompts! Samurai Jack/The Scotsman, Grunkle Stan/Mable, Manny Calavera/Dr. Loboto, and Samurai Jack/Johnny Bravo. These were a lot of fun! I’m excited to try some of the other suggestions.
A little something from my t-shirt design class! We had to make something based on an existing brand, so I went with Johnny Cupcakes. I would love to make this into an actual shirt, but since it’s inspired by their work I’m not sure if that’s crossing into copyright infringement.
Seriously though, many thanks to rad-roach for commissioning me to do this piece! I’ve usually kept my commissions among friends, but I’ll be opening them up soon on tumblr. Though I probably won’t be taking too many big projects like this, oof!
It was fun, though! I love drawing this gothic egg.
El Toro AU doodles! I think I’ve figured out the basics of it:
It’s not so much telling the same story as El Tigre, it’s just putting Book of Life’s story/characters into El Tigre’s setting. So modern times, super heroes, etc…
And because it’s in a super-fantastic setting, La Muerte and Xibalba gave Manolo and Joaquin some extra gifts. Manolo gets a magic guitar (just like Sartana’s!) to help him come back to the realm of the living, and Joaquin gets that cool little crown that gives him some fire powers. And maybe some other nasty side effects over time? naaaaaww yes totally
Maria needs no super powers! She’s learned some super science from when she studied abroad.
I’m still not 100% sure how Manolo died, but it’d probably be different from the actual story.. Maybe Xibalba sent a giant two-headed snake monster for Joaquin to defeat all impressively, but Manolo got killed in the kerfuffle? La Muerte hands over the guitar, and if Xibalba tries to complain about that being cheating, she can just point emphatically at Joaquin. yeah, that’ll work.
This is awfully convoluted but it’s all just an excuse to combine my favorite things: super hero stories, good guys that are monsters/dead, and these characters. being a bunch of adorable children.
