    When you're strange
    Faces come out of the rain.
    When you're strange
    No one remembers your name.

    When you're strange
    You might get hit by some schmuck.
    But when you're really really strange
    Their aim's worthless 'cause they're scared as f*ck.

    @Art Grafunkel: And you were worried we wouldn't want to see what you claim was a "derivative" work...
    Dude, your art is so pretty, I'm up for looking at your shopping list scribbles. But THIS... this is the work of a very sick genius. Kudos, sir. The leg position is the icing on the cake.

    I just have to say, this is my first thread and I've had the best time looking at everyone's stuff. It's truly inspirational. And I had so much fun being apart of it... Warren this should happen way more often.

    Mr Grarfunkel that's the shit.

    Everybody Wins this week.

    I suspect this is partly because Warren banned the original art. That, and the intrinsically funny possibilities of a man and his flamingo...

    yay! it worked.... i did this sketch today at a meeting with some copec markers. sorry i didn't have any reference so dont look too closely at the gun and plane, i hardly ever draw either of them(i've drawn a few more planes than guns) i went with the 'flamenco flamingo' not too sure why.

    hope you all like it...

    kamalcoker, yours is far cooler than the original. And indeed most things on the face of the Earth.

    Here's my contribution. I was going to do a whole sequential page but my weeks been pretty busy. I might actually finish it just for myself at some point.

    Kamalcoker and Matthew Childers: NICE.
    I dig all the details on yours, Kamalcoker, and Matthew, I'm digging it all, mostly the nice color palette!
    Bravo!

    Heh - shocking pink knife was the thought

    I want to to attempt flamingo lawn ornaments as darts somehow - and would have bet Andre or Paul would have beat me to it ... Am using Stone Cold Steve Austin as my Flamingo stand-in (but he reminds me of someone else) and 'Vigilante Notes' because I'm also on a 'year one' vibe.

    You know, I don't see one damn nickel from all that "Sizer System" merchandise...
    Should have read the fine print a little closer.

    It all started with a cruel trick of the light...

    Here's mine . Color and everything. I got a Punisher vibe from the decription, so I tried to get some of that in there. I used Vertigo Jones (a pic from his flickr) for a model for the face.

    @DisContent - I was all like "Mmm, that's pretty good," and then I about fell out of my chair, convulsing in laughter, at the Arse Eels.

    I swear, the details are always what kills me in these threads. The arse eels, Sizer's octopus with a name badge a few months ago, all those goofy little things. And not necessarily the funny stuff; more precisely, the interesting stuff.

    Kudos to you all. I'd do my own, but this week I'd be doing nothing but ripping people off.

    My last piece. I would have devoted much more effort to this one if I had the time, but I'm doing this between breaks in my writing (and horrible sleeping pattern), so I had to leave it at the sloppy lineart and simplistic coloring. But, well, there you go:



    Sorry for the cliche logo.

    Again, absolutely fantastic work, everyone.
