Blowhorn and Bratallica




Here's a couple more characters done way back in 1999 for my comic "Seaweed." Blowhorn was a stuffy English hunter, who was hired to hunt down Seaweed and Poisson but also had to keep on eye on his daughter, Bratallica, whom he had visitation rights for that weekend. Any how the story changed quite a bit during rewrites and in the end these two didn't survive to make it in the final draft.

Oh my god, Bratallica is wonderfully terrifying. Some kids...

Oh man..that's a shame because they look amazing. i especially like blowhorn with the thin moustache and monocle. That second page of sketches is stunning. Thanks for sharing these.

Hey Ben,

Awesome characters, a shame they did'nt make it into the final, but hey, it's a tough business!;)
I was just reminded yet again of how small this business is, when Mr. Joe Barusso whom I'm working with everyday, glanced at my blog, noticed your name in my links and said.....Heeeey, I know Ben!!! I'm sure he wrote you a mail already, but if not, he told me to give you his regards:)
Good luck with Fosters, which is still one of my favs on TV.

Take care,

Hans
