SECRET HEADQUARTERS is a comic book shop in Los Angeles, CA (check out there website at secretheadquarters.com). The owners, Dave & David, apparently liked the cut-out collectibles I produced for ABANDONED CARS, and asked me to create a limited edition collectible of themselves (and their mascot raccoon), in conjunction with Fantagraphics, for the promotion of thier store. The collectible "advertisement" will be printed on their sales bags, and also apparently included in a group of collectible stickers they're producing, as well. This was a fun project: I've always been interested in doing one of the cut-outs as portraiture upon request, and so here I got my chance. I also love to get the chance to produce the design work, and here I was shooting for a 1960's Big Daddy Roth inspired over-the-top toy packaging kind of look. Dave and David are a couple of very cool guys...if you're in the LA area, go give them some business! I'm trying to talk them into producing the cut-out as a life-size, full color lawn ornament. So, if you happen to go to there shop, please suggest to them how cool it'd be if they had one in their shop.
