THAT'S A WRAP! Goodbye, Green Thursdays. I won't miss you. And I mean that in the most affectionate way.
Don't get me wrong. I loved drawing and posting these Green Lantern sketches. I especially loved dreaming up the things I'd do with a Power Ring (I'm gonna let you guess which ones are my own personal fantasies!!!). But I'm sick of these doodles. They've been drawn for nearly five months now and it's time for me to move on.
This Green Thursdays is inspired by two different things.
First up is Give Me Back My Wig by Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers. It's a boogie blues song by the masters of funky, sloppy electric blues. Great stuff.
Second up is an experience from my teenage years. Back in the 90s, wig companies used to offer free "wig previews" -- you send them a photo of your face, and they'd use whatever old school image editing program they used back then to make a digital print out of you "trying on" four of the wigs. My friend Josiah sent away for one of those freebies, and I'll tell you what...
He looked damn good in those wigs. My favorite was the curly blonde.
