Epstein is stylin' pt. 1!

This is artist Ron Horsley and his mug shot. Ron recently graduated from The Art Institute here in Vegas and has done these fantastic re-imaginings of my store mascot, Epstein (seen here in this three part entry). Ron and his wife Beverly are sadly (for me) leaving Vegas to go back to Columbus, Ohio this weekend, but I hope to still keep in touch with him in the future for other visual punch-ups here at the store.

The drawing that Ron is holding is Epstein looking to hitch a ride to Ohio (click on photo to enlarge).















Okay the Bob's Big Boy mascot has nothing to do with comics, but Ron (and myself) was hard pressed to think of what character Epstein should mimic that would represent alternative comics. But don't you just think that this is just a fun look for Epstein!?
