Quick Question…

I’m thinking about Friday’s post and can’t decide what to show you next – I have plenty of new art to show you guys including a commission and some sketches as well as published pages – but I also have another statue to show… so I throw the question to you.  What would you rather see me post on Friday?  More art – or a statue?  You’ll eventually see both but what would you like to see first?

Hulk Halloween Bucket (2008)

I am so bummed.  I should have shown this to you on Halloween night – but I forgot.  Instead I bring this to you now… when it’s almost Thanksgiving.  I like the paint job done on this Halloween Bucket.  Much more colorful than the vintage one.  I looked for this EVERYWHERE but no one had it.  Every store I looked in had Batman, Spiderman (in both red and black costumes), even bleeping High School Musical buckets – but no Hulk.  Luckily I am pretty thorough and searched every store almost everyday and found one two days before Halloween at Toys R Us.  There it was – a lone Hulk bucket – all by its little lonesome.  I was psyched!

Now Turn to the Right - wait, Your Right!

The 1978 bucket was bigger.  As you can figure out – bigger bucket, more candy – but I like the look on the new bucket.  The ’78 bucket has a stoic look on it’s face – like he’s waiting for the bus – or reading on the crapper.  The new bucket looks angry!  Bearing his teeth!  Ready to rumble!  Wait – not ready to rumble – I think that’s owned by Michael Buffer and I don’t want to pay for using that – so the Hulk is… ready to… grapple!
