And yet MORE Popeye art...



Sorry, folks, my stash of Popeye art is inexhaustible.
Still, these are two of my favorite sketches for King Features Licensing, done a few years ago for a line of bendys that were produced. The final toys were quite well done, I thought, looking remarkably like my drawings. Come to think of it, I'm not sure they ever did produce the Jeep figure.

Great stuff, Stephen.
After 9/11, I remember seeing a figurine of a very dynamic Popeye dressed as modern-day fireman titled "All American Hero" it was absolutely beautiful. do you know who made it?

these popeye's are really great, it's always fun to see! i had bought a wimpy figure that came with a meat grinder and the jeep, but i think they were articulated action figures and not the bendy kind...so it was probably something else.

i always loved the jeep though! i really should pick up that big popeye comic strip collection they put out recently
