THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS
Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, there was a little guy who came to be known as Wally. Wally actually started out as a drink coaster, brainchild of Jean Page at SVP. They came to me and asked me to be a part of this great summer campaign for Yupo; I was sent a list of drinks I could illustrate. By the time I responded, most of the good choices were gone. Fuzzy Navel was still open, so I did the normal fifty thumbnail ideas and the one that struck me right away was this cute little guy in deep Omphaloskepsis, (contemplating ones navel.) I thought it would be funny to have him hairy everywhere but his head. As I am not a hairy guy, someone had once sent me a chest wig as a joke; So, I scanned the chest wig in and made a brush out of it so I could paint anything hairy. The folks at Yupo fell in love with him, and for years they had some happy fun together.
