Evil has a new name..............

"Monticlair" our CEO of Gee Whizey World who has his sight on World domination of the tourist industry! one of his famous quotes "In this country, you gotta make the money first. He who controls the Flip Flops, Coffee mugs & t- shirts gets the money. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women. ummm wait maybe that was from the movie Scarface.

Mi nombre es Luis y yo trabajo en Crackerland

Ok the return of Luis the landscaper...our Cuban immigrant who escaped as a child Castro's communist Cuba in a Dixie cup ... Speaks no English but loves America. I dropped him earlier on, but always liked the character & thought with our Florida setting we need a latin flavor. I think Mark's drawing has done him justice!

Artist: Mark Stanger

Divas 4 a Day - Episode Sketches

I came up with an episode awhile back called "Divas 4 a Day" and I pictured something like this. Every great character dressed up as a woman before! Bugs, Chaplin, even Mrs. Doubtfire.

Here are some doodles from my idea.

Artist : Lavalle Lee

"Diva's 4 A Day

After months of advertising the famous 3 Divas would perform for Crackerland's anniversary ...Their bus is snowed in.. Does that stop the show? No! Mr. Cracker has our 3 guys Jay, Fred & Bumby dress like the Divas and get on stage to perform as the group.. Possibly the worst concert in history!
