Lushie Rich


I was inspired by the Harvey exhibition at the Cartoon Art Museum.
I used to have hundreds of Richie Rich comics as a kid, though this is the first time I've tried drawing him. I gave him a tiny bit of a gut in the drawing on the right. Those cocktails can pack on the pounds!

These are great! I always knew Richie Rich had to be a drunk.

Fantastic

I like the idea of Richie being cursed with an anti-aging gene, isolated in that Rich mansion only talking to Irona all day...

Man, that's fucked up. No wonder he turned to drink.

Would you give me permission to use your ink tree image ( from 2006) for a poster for a choreography project in Vancouver Canada? The project supports emerging choreographers and it is free- I won't be making any money. I will credit you fully on the posters and flyers.

The project is called Project CPR. Choreographic Practice and Research.
