As a birthday gift for Jay Fosgitt last month, I did this piece honoring a few of his characters & designs: Dead Duck & The Little Blue Men. For Dead Duck, I abanondoned Jay's design to draw the character as if it were a real undead duck. Jay liked that idea when I had sketched the character before, so I knew it would go over well with him again. And riding Dead Duck are the Little Blue Men, the rivals to the main characters in the book Jay drew & wrote for APE: The Little Green Men. The Green guys are tiny alien interpretations of the Three Stooges, so in a moment of brilliance, Jay designed some blue men that are tiny alien versions of the Marx Brothers. I love the Marx Bros. & I think Jay nailed the deigns for those guys.
