Body Inflation Pics - Page 10

Not an exact copy of Tomi Ungerer's sketchy illustrations for the first classic printing of "Flat Stanely", but close. Ungerer has the hose for the bicycle pump twice as long as what I drew--which is damned long for such a thing. First published in 1964, Flat Stanley has undergone a revival with revised art which I absolutely reject in favor of the old style. As the story goes, Stanley Lambchop is a normal boy who is flattened overnight when a heavy bulletin board falls on him. He adjusts to his new shape and becomes a celebrity and a hero, but eventually tires of being paper thin and one night his younger brother Arthur digs out a bicycle pump and restores him with some forceful pumping. Stanley's pajama buttons burst off and it looks like he won't quite return to normal because of a foot with poor circulation, but at last, the stubborn foot takes on air and Stanley is a normal boy again.

This was a fun little comic idea that I did while watching the "Tremors" collection back in 2009 on a quiet weekend.  I had been teasing my good friend Kecomaster a bit with this and thought I would at least give it a try.  Not too much to look at, but it was for more of my enjoyment.  :)

An old comic idea Kecomaster and I kicked around for a few weeks before I decided to put the text in and clean it up a bit.  This page and the next few are the finished results.  Unfortunately, it has a cliffhanger that never got resolved.

King Koo Koo. His capacity to inflate and grow is directly proportionate to the mean-spirited gags suffered by others. Maybe the weirdest example of body inflation ever animated. His expansion is random and temporary because of his bi-polar nature: Sadistic delight or grouchy self-pity.

6os TV show villain Hurricane Harry. Capable of blowing buildings down with his hurricane breath. Pen and ink.

Popeye gets revenge on Bluto for faking a nervous breakdown and lounging in a hospital. The best part is, I didn't have to make this up. MS PAINT over pen and pencil.

Before there was Violet Beauregarde, there was Moe Howard--maybe the first live actor in film to depict turning into a balloon. "Dizzy Pilots" has Moe and the other numbskulls trying to build an airplane. Their inconsiderate antics soon get Moe into a tub of quick-sealing rubber. Of course he thinks inflating his stiffening clothes with Hydrogen gas will solve everything. Before he can be sliced out of the rubber, he takes off through an open skylight and doesn't get far before being shot down. (Hydrogen doesn't react well to hot lead).
