You got me going again Mark.For a minute I thought this was real.It looks like a cover made in the 60s
for maybe capitol records.Great job! Really appealing.

Chris Sig said...

Better let the buyer beware - it might not feature the original voice actors for all we know...! ;)

Amazing stuff yet again, Mark. Have you ever considered pitching Sid Sirloin, perchance? Or attempt a Flash Animation? I'd be more than happy to contribute if either thought came to mind.

MARK CHRISTIANSEN said...

Thanks once again, Tony and Chris!

Chris- I've never pitched Sid Sirloin, but I have worked up presentations for other shows that were similar in style and presented those to several studios. I have thought about using Flash for a project, but there are some barriers that are preventing me from doing that.

i'm pretty sure that album had all the original voices....but the name of the guy that voiced the majority of the characters has slipped my mind...hmmmm.....

MARK CHRISTIANSEN said...

Scott,

Yeah, I think your vocal chords would be pretty worn out after a recording session.
Of course you would voice Sid, Presto and Schmoe. I've often thought of Frank Welker as Bungle, but I'm not sure about Grunt and Scooter. Henry Corden would have been perfect for Grunt. Oh well, time to leave fantasyland...

This is very cool! Clearly you've got that cleanup technique downpat (the line has more of the warmth of a non-digital hand cleanup), and your usual eye for graphic design and the right font choices is in play. I like this muchly.

MARK CHRISTIANSEN said...

Hey Mark,
I thank you muchly! Appreciated as always.

Patrick Owsley said...

LOVE it, Mark! Maybe Dick Beals could lend his voice talent to this project. 8^)

MARK CHRISTIANSEN said...

Thanks, Patrick! You're right...I forgot all about Dick Beals, and he's still able to do voices, right?

Great Sid Sirloin soundtrack artwork! I remember when I was a youngster and saw this in the store - wait a sec...

MARK CHRISTIANSEN said...

Ha! Thanks, James!

Very clever parody of a Colpix album cira 1962-65. I wonder what Colpix Records founder Stu Phillips would've thought of this send-up cover? Now, if only Bill & Joe would've dreamed up a real "Sirloin" cartoon show, complete with Screen Gems' "dancing sticks" closing logos? That would've been a gasser! Keep up the good work!
