Bedbug Evolution

My latest Bedbug dream image. I don't know who this guy was, but he started chasing me with those axes when I trespassed on his property. He only let me go when I promised to buy him a CD by K.C. and the Sunshine Band.
Just for kicks, I've posted the sketch stages, from teeny thumbnail scribble to anal-retentive finish. Consider this a cautionary example.


Just for the hell of it, here's Stephen Hawking reading the "Cups" story below.



Runneth Over with Cups

Long ago – they tell me it was 1973 – the 7-11 convenience store chain released a series of Slurpee cups with images of DC Comics super heroes printed on them: http://www.glassnews.com/images/dcchecklist.gif. These were cheap, plastic cups in which the neon-colored concoction of syrup and crushed ice was dispensed. Usually, the cups featured a never-ending parade of sports stars, which held no interest to an avid indoorsman like me, who spent most of his free time coloring or playing with bugs. Having developed a growing interest in the cartoon likes of Superman and his cape-wearing ilk, I was very excited that this form of merchandising was taking a break from the Aarons and Clementes to serve up a few men in tights. Draw your own Freudian conclusions.
