Here, proudly displayed on the skeleton of William Burroughs, is an amazing item made by a fan and given to me years ago.
The well-executed Sam & Max faces are cast in latex and held in place with Velcro so they can be removed to launder the shirt. The whole thing creates a pleasantly disturbing effect.
Due to what I assume is my chronic lead poisoning I've forgotten the name of the skilled craftsman who presented me this item. If you're out there, please remind me so I can credit you and thank you again.

Here is a monster design I'm pretty happy with. He was part of the Sam & Max Plunge Through Space design, one of a threatening pack that patrol the enormous multi-level parking structure near Green Mama's, the re-named space bound casino version of the Statue of Liberty. Acrylic 8X10

Here is artist Drew Millward's contribution to current Gallery 1988 show "MULTIPLAYER". It's a screen print in a signed, numbered edition of 50 sold through the gallery. Always fun for me to see a totally different perspective on these characters. Screen Print 19X19

I love drawing rats and roaches, our tiny, highly adaptable vermin cousins on this planet.
Here is a character designed for either the ill-fated or the not-yet-fully-realized game/movie/whatever, "Sam & Max Plunge Through Space".
He's a bouncer at the intergalactic casino which has been repurposed from the stolen Statue of Liberty, now perched on a remote asteroid.
That story is back in the deep freeze for the time being but imagine my delight when there came a prominent role for a man-sized roach named Sal, designed by Ryan Jones for Sam & Max, The Devil's Playhouse, the most recent season from Telltale Games. I'll post him later. Acrylic 8X10

Angus MacLane, super-talented veteran Pixar animator as well as Director is a huge Lego fan. Besides his Pixar credits he has officially collaborated with Lego, designing the exclusive Star Wars CubeDudes for the 2010 ComicCon.
His office at Pixar is a sight to behold, a castle turret packed with robots and CubeDude representations of every pop culture character you can imagine. Sam & Max made Angus's to-do list and he just showed me this final result.
Sadly these aren't being sold. It's purely an art piece.
