Kyle does Vinnie
Years ago, Robbie Busch and I egged Kyle Baker on to draw like his former boss, Vinnie Coletta.
This is what Kyle drew.
I kept it.
Kyle never finished it, didn't letter it or nothing, but the joke is
(wait for it......)
that the girl in the foreground is whistful.
Because her portly boyfriend has bigger
knockers than she has.
Note: Kyle, with a bit of direction from Robbie and I, managed to get that romantic, wall-eyed quality to his female that Vinnie was so adept at!
In the same sitting, Kyle banged out an illustration inspired by Atlas-era Marvel Monsters, called CHEESOR (complete with an Artie Simek style logo.)
But I lost Cheesor somewheres, dang it.
