Randy the Ram "The Wrestler"



So before Christmas my buddy and fellow board artist, John Puglisi, asked if I wanted to go to a free screening of "The Wrestler". Turns out it was the actual premier of the film in Beverly Hills! I just about barfed with glee when Rowdy Roddy Piper, Brutus the Barber Beeefcake, Greg the Hammer Valentine, and even Nature Boy Rick Flair were introduced before the screening. I could name drop all night but the highlight was seeing Slash chilling by the free bar. To prove my story here's a photo of the films director Darren Aronofsky and Jared Leto at the after party. You can clearly see my gut on the right side of the photo. I also did a quick drawing of Randy the Ram in case anyone wants to make an animated version of the film ala "Hulk Hogan's Rock-n-Wrestling." Just kidding. OK... No I'm not.

Funny ! : first time I went to work in LA, back in 1985, was to do some model-sheets for "Hulk Hogan Rock 'n Wrestling".
That was a new world for me !
