No wonder that he's a single father.

BTW: A million thanks for all those wonderful blog entries and e-mails regarding the Greenhoerns, duckthings, critterbirds, etc. I'm really glad that those retro-punkish bird-like creatures go down so well with you! After all, their horned virtue derive its origin from a sort of cast-off idea (which I'll post a little later) of a different project. In this context I can betray that they (the GHs) will be in a way part of the StarDucks adventures.

Horns, Hörner, Hoerns!

Update: Alright, here we go. Here're my fellow kippers, the Super Hare-Brained Greenhoerns. World Savers extraordinaire!

Above: work-in-progress piece

I think the only thing missing here's a critter with a green latern :)

Well, they don't have a great effect on high literature but they have a profound effect on prevention of wheight gain of horrid monsters from below ground level.

I think this is the most insane thing I've ever been involved in... Anyway, I'll show you those hare-brained Greenhoerns a little later. Please don't expect some typically brave heros, determined to fight monsters. Actually, they were never meant to be heros... but then everyone started referring to them as heros. As superheros.

"...I told them who they were and they became it."

Blueprints: To Shampoo And Set; Paper Walker

Ropes, again.

Update: Talking of blue, this (below) is a cut-and-glue paper illustration I did recently in my spare time. In fact, the "real" paper walker! It was, and will be, used for a series of articles of my significant other in an Austrian business mag. (Family business, if you will ;)
