Well, here are at last, the end of July.  Whether things are improving right now is anyone's guess, but hope must always remain.  All I know is, I got some art to share, and hopefully y'all will get a kick out of it.  Features a few special guests even!  Enjoy...

Where to begin with this one?  If you know web comics and wrestling, this one will make a LOT more sense, especially 90's wrestling.  We all know Bigfoot, Yeti and Evan Yeti, as they're all web comic benchmarks and I've done fan art of those characters in the past.  The guy on the far right however is also called the Yeti, or Ye-tay as longtime WCW announcer Tony Schiavone called him.  In 1995, WCW put together a group of monster heel wrestlers and called them the Dungeon of Doom.  Their lone purpose was to rid WCW of Hulk Hogan.  It was a plan similar to how the WWF had booked Hogan, putting unstoppable monsters before him that made the fans believe they might actually pose a threat to the Hulkster.  WCW, however, largely concerned themselves with stroking Hogan's ego and just had him absolutely demolish every member of what became a rather large revolving door of the stable.  In the weeks prior to Halloween Havoc '95, the Dungeon's Taskmaster, Kevin Sullivan, wheeled out a giant block of ice to shows and claimed that the Yeti was coming for Hulk Hogan.  On the night of the show, the ice broke and indeed, someone was there to attack.  But instead of a large, hairy creature of Himalayan myth coming out to attack, a large mummy lead the charge and proceeded to have his way with Hulkamania.  I'd go into further detail, but words really do this post no justice.  Just look it up on YouTube folks.  There's bound to be at least one uncut video that WWE's lawyers haven't ordered off yet!  This was another entry for Animal Alphabets and one of my favorites to work on.  Vince Dorse, Jeff Crowther and Mat Washburn are all very good friends and I'm always happy to draw up some fan art for them and should do it more often quite frankly.  Bad wrestling, or Wrestlecrap, is also another fun subject, especially the goofier stuff from the past.  This art got a good response on Twitter.  I was pretty surprised to see how many people knew of this infamous wrestling angle that even Hulk Hogan himself expressed embarrassment over.  We can all look back and have a laugh at it now at least.

And that's a wrap for the month of July.  We'll be back next time with more CRAZY fun and hopefully maybe even some good news.  Please take care of yourselves and stay safe.  Until next time, I'll catch y'all later.
