This may be one of my stranger commissions, at least in terms of subject matter.
So Sean Moore started a sale yesterday offering B&W bust commissions for the princely sum of five dollars apiece. Well, I figured that would be cool, so I nabbed two of them early. There's still one slot left, if this sounds like a deal to you.
Trouble was, who to have as the subjects? Well, one of them will surprise no one, but that's coming later. For the other, I tossed around various ideas until I was seized by the spirit of whimsy.
It's no secret I'm a fan of Casey Kasem. So much so, there's a parody of him running around the Owariverse. His name is Curt Koorey (and that surname is very deliberately Lebanese, like Kasem). I thought it would be fun to have Sean do a "Curt Koorey" pic and just linked him to a Google Image Search for Casey. I did caution, however, that he didn't have to sweat getting the likeness too close.
This man is dangerous! He carries no gun, no knife, no dynamite...but locked in his brain is a power stronger than a load of dynamite! He is - Christopher Elam! The only man who can CAUSE things to happen!
OWARI (Japanese for "The End") was founded as a fanzine in 1995. As times have changed, the 'zine has been phased out, but OWARI continues as a vehicle for the interests of Christopher Elam. That's me, if you hadn't guessed.
