Biker Mice From Mars was possibly the coolest cartoon ever! I can only imagine what it would have felt like pitching this idea to a studio. "Picture this. Three giant mice from Mars riding super cool motorbikes around the streets of Chicago, kicking the butts of badies." It was these giant mice that inspired me to ride the streets of my home-town pretending to be my favourite character, Throttle. I re-lived those fond memories while I created this illustration. I really tried capture the funky 80's colours and cheesy poses that flowed throughout the show.

Sometimes I wonder what the bears in Goldilocks And The Three Bears were doing while Goldilocks was raiding their house. Since it doesn't really specify in the books that I've read, I decided to make up my own side plot. I figure the logical explanation is they must have been at a punk gig. Papa Bear is the singer, while Momma Bear and Baby Bear are in the crowd, pumping their fists for moral support.

Sometimes I draw a picture and wonder what was going though my head. This is one of those pictures. I'm not sure why a duck is dressed in a checked flannel shirt and has just cut down a tree, but I could just say something smart like "It's open to interpretation" or "It's a political statement", and people would probably just pretend to understand. Ducks are the best!
