I just finished this picture. It's 23x18 watercolor and ink on paper. I just realized I forgot to add Popeye's granny, but other than that I have the majority of the repeat characters from the Popeye comic strips and books. I didn't include Ham Gravy because he disappeared shortly after Popeye took over the "Thimble Theatre" comic strip.

I'm an '80s kid. I grew up with the beginning of Nintendo, the heydays of home video rentals (VHS tape from Blockbuster and Family Video), He-Man, Saturday morning cartoons, and a big part of my youth: G.I. JOE! I had a LOT of figures, and I watched the cartoon. My favorite characters have always been Shipwreck, Sgt. Slaughter and Stalker.
TODAY, February 1st, is apparently G.I. Joe Day! So, to celebrate I thought I'd post some art and a couple other photos related to the Joes.
