He's Just a Baby Duck!

Sometimes, especially when I've got a lot of work on the board, I just want to draw something for ME! A doodle that makes me laugh, or an idea I've had for awhile but just never took the time to jot down in black and white (or grey if I only have time for pencils). Baby Huey is one such drawing. I LOVE the Harvey characters! Dark Horse has been releasing collections of Harvey kids, sort of a Best OF selection (though I really wish someone would do a COMPLETE collection...at least of Hot Stuff).
I'd had an idea to draw Baby Huey lookin' a little...dumber. He's a big dumb oaf in the comics, and the cartoons, which is all part of his appeal as a character. He's a baby with the strength of an ox!
So the above is my take on Baby Huey!
Here's the Super Friends ABC News screen cap as nabbed by blog reader Javier. Thanks, Javier! That's pretty cool!
And speaking of Super Friends, I finally finished the interiors to another issue. I'll let you know when it's coming out, but I drew the interiors for Super Friends #18 guest starring the Bizarro Super Friends! Holy socks, is there ever some funny stuff from writer Sholly in this issue.

There is something disturbingly cannibalistic about a duck eating a drumstick.

Great as always J - Incredibly funny.

I'm waiting for the Shazam cover and REALLY waiting for the Brave and The Bold.

I don't tend to collect any regular books anymore...just more specific to the creative talent. You're on my checklist. Keep it up and keep us posted!

Javier - Indeed. It's possible Baby Huey is eating his own father. Silly Baby!

James M. - I'm the same sort of collector, really. I'm sure it's no surprise to find that I look for certain favourite artists. I'm happy to be on your checklist, James. I'll try not to disappoint :)

Hey J.

Cool take on Baby Huey there. Did you know there was a Baby Huey live action Movie in the 90s? yikes.

Thanks again for signing my copy of the Spirit at TCAF.

He maybe is only a baby, but this duck has a terrible appearance, I mean, he is fatty and also has a long, long neck... In short, he is so ugly.
