Coffee Shop Girl

Girls with off beat beauty always
catch my eye. This gal had a certain
indefinable something that I tried
to capture in these sketches.
I don't know if I caught it, but it
was fun trying.

NSTHS: Chaka

Tonight on Not-So-True Hollywood Story


After the cancellation of Land of the Lost,
Chaka's career hit the skids. Booze, drugs
and carousing took their toll and Chaka
was forced to make a living doing
personal appearances at store openings
and used car dealerships. Needless to say,
his belligerent attitude (as exemplified
in the above illustration) quickly ended even
these pathetic employment opportunities.

A shell of his former self, Chaka finally
hit rock bottom. He checked into rehab and
found religion. Once sober, he shaved off all of
his hair, returned to his given name, Stanley
Chakenberg, and married a performance
artist he met while detoxing.

He now lives with his wife and 22 children in
Montana where he raises chemical free chickens
and is working on a memoir entitled "I was a
Hollywood Monkey Boy: A Cautionary Tale".

Land of the Lost, baby!

Keep on Snappin'

Back in '62, an artist named
Art Crummy (hated seeing his name
in the phone book) came up with a
drawing he titled "Keep on Snappin'".
He had it printed on posters, t-shirts
and dozens of other products in an effort
to get it to catch on with the nation's youth.

It never happened for him and the art
was lost to the ages.

Years later, R. Crumb came up with
"Keep on Truckin'" and gained the
popularity that Mr. Crummy never knew.

Years after Crummy's death the original
art for "Keep on Snappin'" was discovered
in the basement of a Chuck E. Cheese in
Des Moines and is presented here
for your viewing pleasure.

Was Crummy robbed of his rightful glory?

You be the judge.

Catch of the Day!

I saw this girl at the Kava House coffee shop.

I jazzed up her outfit with a new bag and
a retro pattern on her dress.

Then, I gave her a creepy fish
and a tribal weapon.

It's how I roll.

Calderesque Design

Calder is being celebrated locally.
His amazing work inspired this sketch.
