A nod to Chuck Jones, a nod to Maurice Noble, this is one road runner who’s not really sure of this whole mess. Fun fact: this page in the book will be opposite of Jeannine’s coyote illustration. That’s right, we were raised on classic Looney Tunes, what of it?
Holy Christ on a cracker, THE BOOK IS DONE. WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH consider me dead for the next 2 weeks. *thud*
N Force #9, March 1993 - Bubsy The Bobcat Cover. “What could possibly go wrong?”

Oh, Bubsy. I played way too much of you and thought your game was sooooo much better than it actually was when I was 13. I think this cover is extra hilarious because Bubsy, who is obviously meant to be the star, looks like someone’s furry OC on DeviantArt, what with the lopsidedness, tangents, weird silhouette, crude coloring and attempt at a popular art style. And yet Bubsy, so obviously trying to emulate the clean, weighted and appealing style of the cartoons of the day, like that of one Buster Bunny up there, pales in comparison. Yes, it’s bad when your wacky mascot takes the back seat to the other character who is 1/8th the size of yours on the page.
It really captures the watered-down qualities of the Bubsy games, actually. Well played! ;)

Gray wolves on the go! Kind of like the white tailed deer piece I did, I wanted to have the animals recede into the background in this one. It’s kind of risky since this is for an animal art book and typically you want to see the animal up close, but I said “Screw it, it’s my book and I’m doing it this way.”
I get one Art Brat card to play per book. Consider it played.
