|My early works...
... were dedicated to an undead guy with bad manners, strong body odour, green teeth and a culinary preference for beetles whereby the latter attribute was the source of his naming.
Originally, Beetlejuice was a motion picture from 1988, directed by Tim Burton. As usual, it was followed by a TV-cartoon series, yet this one distinguished itself (to my opinion) by its independence from the movie as well as by its unique character designs, which were based on sketches by Tim Burton himself (he being a studied artist).
I was struck by the movie, but the cartoon really did it for me. Yes, I admit it - this character has some great sex appeal, and frankly I wouldn't be doing comics at all if it wasn't for the erotic aspect as well. Cartooning is a very sensual matter!
to 1995 I drew 5 whole comics, 40 pages apiece. However, the character
is under copyright, I did neither invent it nor is there any way of profiting
from it (which means, I don't dare to publish the comics on my own website).
I did some pictures for a friend who is running a fanpage for Beetlejuice.
In case you are interested you can take a look at them here.
It was good practise, though, and I wouldn't want to miss the experience.
