This week we wrap up our series of weekly artifacts that revisit Dr. Sketchy’s of years past. Our faceless model this week is Pepper Fandango, back for the second week in a row, and this is based on a pose from a 2015 edition of Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School devoted to the cult Anime classic, Fooly Cooly (most often spelled “FLCL”). I didn’t really focus on the FLCL aspect of the pose, and instead went all 1980s on it. So there’s a bit of a Nagel influence, along with some post-pop-art minimalism and high contrast, high-saturation tinkering.
UPDATE: Thanks to Robert Farley, who caught that I managed to confuse FLCL with Cowboy BeBop. This is from a session of Dr. Sketchy’s devoted to Cowboy BeBop, and my brain mis-remembered it. Sorry for the confusion and laziness that kept me from going back and double-checking.
As always, click the image to see it bigger. Next week we’ll start a new theme, and I’m leaning toward an architectual one.
