A little experiment where I drew the late-period Beatles in the style of the Beatles TV cartoon.

I stopped coloring in coloring books for fun around the age of 9. The only coloring I ever did after that was on my own drawings, or with kids I was babysitting. But, after reading a hilarious post at X-Entertainment devoted to “Sh*tty He-Man Coloring Books,” I wanted to color something. Something nostalgic. From my past.
And lo and behold, I found an awesome site with all sorts of COLORING BOOK scans from cartoons, video games, and anime of the past. I did a nice picture of Super Sailor Moon (which, on second thought, has WAY too many complexities to be colored by a kid….) but that was unfortunately lost. So, lacking anything to color with at the moment, I will present to you my Corel-Paint-Crayon-Tool-colored masterpiece, “Bauhaus Mondrian Pony” (click for full size):
Happy coloring! And feel free to link to your own colored page (only 1 please) in your comment!
Here’s the latest product of RECCALUX “animation” studios (a.k.a. me).
Enjoy! And please rate the video on YouTube
It’s a parody of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, a famous German silent film. If you’re wondering about the irritating music: the DVD distributed by KINO used a crappy “modern” score done on synth and guitar that sounded just about as bad (if not worse) than the soundtrack I created by mashing up 2 unrelated songs. It’s about what the real thing sounds like >: )
So I was perusing a digital copy of Part 2 of the 2nd official Simpsons-Futurama crossover comic [wish I could find part one, anyone wanna send it to me? 😉 ] when….ANIME REFERENCE!!!!
and not just any anime reference, CAPTAIN HARLOCK, my favorite space pirate, from the under-appreciated space-opera-awesome universe of Leiji Matsumoto! This was the biggest “omg that’s hilarious!” moment since Excel Saga spoofed Galaxy Express 999.
