Back in June I was asked to colour the box art for 'soon to be released' retro-action dolls for these two characters from the 1960's - Captain Action and his arch-nemesis "Dr Evil"
Well Art Thibert drew them , and I duly coloured them up (twice for the Captain Action figure) and then we heard... well a lot of excuses and mucking around wanting changes, which Art and I did, and then a lot more excuses and mucking around on backgrounds... and at the end of the day? No money.
So I've emailed the people involved at least once a month since then and never received a single reply, so now I decided that they're a lost cause and I'm posting these anyway. There were no contracts or exclusivity NDA's signed so I'm not breaking anything there. It was all a 'gentlemen's agreement' - but I guess Art T and I are the only gentlemen involved here. (so, sorry about the watermark this time)
Backgrounds are what I initially visualised them to be. If these ever see the light of day and are actually made into a final product then those'll be a lot different.
Pencils and inks = Art Thibert

Well whattya know - they paid up! I got the check today. (yay) It's a shame that it came down to posting the pictures on the internet like this and some rather terse emails back and forth, but at least its resolved and all's well that ends well as they say.

Today these picture turned up as trading cards for some reason. They've totally disregarded the backgrounds that I made up so I take no responsibility (or pride) for those --> [link]
