ID This Character Please!
« on: February 17, 2024, 12:30:59 PM »
Can someone please help me identify the original card that had a skeleton with a leather jacket & mohawk using some kind of hair spray? It's from one of the more recent sets, but I can't remember which one or the title of the card.

Off the top of my head, with no stickers to check, might it be Brylscream??

I remember that one and I think Pat is close as it is an Old School character.  I think it may be Grave something.  Sorry I canít recall the full name but I think itís one of Peteís.   Hey Pete you around, what Wacky is the Mohawk Skeleton?

After a little poking around, I suspect youíre thinking of Grave Scare Spray from OLDS 10.

That was a design I drafted for Dave. I was spoofing Rave hairspray, and Grave was an obvious choice. You don't normally think of hair on skeletons, but Punk Rock was the Next Big Sound in the late 70s and early 80s with it's crazy hairstyles like those giant spikes! I thought it nailed the timeframe we were shooting for perfectly!

Pete, very cool!  Any chance you could post the rough?

I'd love to share the rough with the forum! If my faithful sidekick Tonto (you DO know what that translates to, right?) would make with the technological wizardry, maybe it will magically appear here soon?

Ha, Pete!  Thanks for emailing it this morning and here it is for the forum to enjoy!  I always get a kick out of seeing how close the final art and rough align.  Looks like you nailed this one as the final art is really very close!
