Here's a quick illustration I made on Monday for the Curio & Co. blog entry "The Mantagons vs. Modern Society" that my partner Kirstie Shepherd manages.
As we are getting ready to launch our new Spaceman Jax comic it's only fitting that we talk about some of the nemesis of our hero Jax. The Mantagons. Jax, his niece Dekkin, and their trusted and sometime rusting (he's a robot) friend Artie are thrown in some crazy screwball adventures that fortunately for Jax, always seem to pan out well. Let's hope that his luck holds up on future adventures… well, at least we know for sure that both Artie and Dekkin are there to remedy the situation.
Since the back story of Spaceman Jax, in the Curioverese, is that it was a TV show, from the 1960's (produced by Pud Film), I've been making images that would suit that feeling. I.e. snap shots of animation cells or the animated show and of course creating the logos that would would fit the time period and its production company Pud.
Her's a couple of Curio & Co. back story links on Spaceman Jax:
Spaceman Jax - TV show back backstory
Brought to You by Sunnington Morn - Sunnington Morn the TV show sponsor
Ringer Comics - The comic book publisher
The Rocks in Bloom - The fauna on the TV show
Fan Club Fanatic - The fan club
In Praise of the Bad Guys - some more info about the Manatagons
Brigadeer Bafalo - Pud film other show
We also tend to put more back story info in the products descriptions as well, in the case of Spaceman Jax the animation animation production drawings descriptions have some little easter eggs hidden in there
And a couple of images to go along with the spirit of this post.
