Pouring over the Taschen book, PALEO ART (a collection of dinosaur paintings and prehistoric scenes) I got inspired by the early dinosaur art where the artists did not have much scientific information to draw from. So they just made stuff up (like lizard men, etc.). I decided to make a prehistoric diorama of my own using the cartoon creatures from my imagination. And here it is: KAZAZZIC PARK. One fun thing that happens whenever I push my design is that I often find new characters that then get up and walk onto future Underworld strips.
Order “The Underworld: From Hoboken to Hollywood” the omnibus collection of the very best of the strip’s 23-year run, with annotations, photos, and other surprises from the author (along with a foreword by Mutts creator Patrick McDonnell).
