Forbush Man

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Wheeler Hall, the mastermind behind this site and OK, Panic, is one of the nicest and most generous gentlemen you’d ever want to meet. I’m not just saying that to butter him up so he’ll forgive the twenty bucks I owe him. I’m also saying it since he won a contest at “The Break-Ins,” a podcast hosted by Bruce O. Hughes and Justin Wasson. For his prize, Wheeler requested an original Justin Wasson rendition of Forbush Man so he could present it to Sarah, a devotee of all things Forbushian. Isn’t that sweet? I think so, too. Thanks, Wheeler! For something else that’s sweet, you can admire Mr. Wasson’s coloring of this piece at JUSTINWASSON.COM.

Forbush Noir

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

The new OK, Panic! is online and ready for your perusal. Hope you enjoy it. It’s called “Feldman: Man, Myth, Magic!” and the theme was chosen by Kurt Dinse.

What does that have to do with Forbush Man you ask? Well, about a month ago, Eric Shonborn chose “Noir” for his Panic theme. Since noir means “black” in French, we decided to color one Forbush and leave the other rendered in stark b&w. Because the other artists on the site left their craftwork in b&w, Wheeler suggested we submit our colored version to be different and publish the b&w Forbush on Sketchbook. So, a month later, here it is. (Special thanks to Sarah Potter for lighting a fire under Sketchbook’s web administrator; otherwise, with his bad memory, he might have never posted the piece).
