Unproduced Ren and Stimpy Goodbye Bumper Pt 4 - end

Ren and Stimpy stare at 2 kids at home watching the show. It's Blibby and Blabby.
Stimpy points to them to prove to Ren that those are really their names.
Blibby and Blabby reach out to Stimpy's to touch the famous finger.
Ren is flabbergasted that such names exist.
He gives in and tells Stimpy to go ahead and say hi to some more crazy named kids.
Stimpy greets Yorbert and Plampadoodle, 2 of their biggest fans.
Ren tries coming up with weird names but can only think of names of famous ancient Greeks.
Stimpy approves! Ren's head drops to the floor with a clunk. He is defeated.
Oh and there are some new doodles here:

Unproduced Ren and Stimpy Goodbye Bumper pt3

Now that the TV screen is cleaned up, Ren and Stimpy start saying hi to the kids at home (like the end of Romper Room - for anyone old enough to remember).

Ren uses common everyday names while Stimpy says hi to kids with goofier names.

Ren thinks Stimpy is a few pickles shy of a barrel, but he shrugs it off at first.
The more Stimpy greets kids with odder and odder names, the more irritated Ren gets . He tries to ignore it and goes back to 'normal' names.
When Stimpy greets "Blibby and Blabby" Ren loses it.
Ren hauls off and smacks Stimpy right in the puss. He accuses him of making up these crazy names.
to be continued...

Vintage Art Deco and Stylized Airbrush

I love this old approach to using airbrush. It's not trying to be photo realistic. Instead it's just using the medium to create something that's distinct unto itself.









 Dell Paperbacks in the 30s and 40s used beautiful stylized airbrush paintings to instantly grab your eye at the local pharmacy or supermarket.








This approach was also used to great affect for cartoon art.
 
 I was told "Spuma" is what voice actors use to gargle with before they do a recording session.
This one almost looks modern. (maybe it is?)

It's also a wonderful style for caricature as these Vanity Fair covers show.





 
And lastly, one can never get enough of Art Deco VD posters.
