A time of bright tacky clothes...the life and death of grunge music...Bill Clinton...and the best damn cartoons since the 40's.
These are two pieces for the Autumn Society's 90's show! Since growing up in the 90's the most exciting thing for me were cartoons! And boy, did Nickelodeon have em! They actually had cartoons back then! Yea, Nickelodeon. HAHAHA!
Rocko's Modern Life! Now that was a hoot!
I didn't realize how much the stories inspired me, I found old comics I did with my characters basically reenacting a story from Rocko. Yea I know, I was lame, it was the 90's.
I wanted to add the Chameleon Bros, The Fat Hippo Lady, Ralph Bighead, The Slug guy, The Wacky Deli Meats and the Wild Pig but I couldn't fit all of them, and chose only the ones I thought were most important.
But this show is the 90's to me. Bright crazy colors, awesome rockabilly/surf music, innuendos, bathroom humor, crazy stories and weirdly designed characters. And toooons of great one liners that I still recite to this day!
Turn da page, wash ya hands, turn da page wash ya hands....
AAAHH REAL MONSTERS!
Everyone's favorite garbage-dwellers, Ickis, Oblina and Krumm! AAAHH!
The only Klasky-Csupo show where their ugly style worked! Ha! I loved this show as a kid, I loved monsters as a kid, so it worked out for me.
If anyone's in the Philadelphia area go check out the show! It should be really aweso...I mean tubular, dude. Let's get some snaaackage....
Opening night-June 4th
Place-Brave New Worlds

The 90's were awesome weren't they? I loved growing up then. Ya know, I would've done a big Ren and Stimpy tribute but I think, to me, they're bigger then the 90's. I'll do a nice big piece for em some day.
Post some more stuff soon!
