Phil Cohen was a figment of my imagination. And yet, he lives. In the early ’90s, I cobbled him together from various exploitation filmmakers and tough guys and wrote an article with a film shoot with a couple of good friends. Somewhere along the line, a myth was born. I’ve resurrected him for the forth […]
Here’s the logo for the movie, pretty obviously based on another gore film of another kind. Regardless, “Cultural Reference” is our bag. If you’re into this shit, you’re into what we’re doing. Enjoy. Ha! Enjoy, he says!
Kirby and I made Chicken Outfit to be deliberately unsaleable. Well, not really. It is an odd mix when you think about it. Our work has been compared to everything from Ren & Stimpy to The Tick and yet in my mind I have no affinity for either cartoon. We have crazy looking, Warner Brothers-esque […]
I resist doing shit like this because I prefer manuals. So don’t take this too seriously – though you just may find yourself picking up a trick or shortcut here you haven’t thought of. Enjoy! Ha! Enjoy he says. I MEANT…Get to work you lazy bum!
I’ve decided to finally start revealing how I construct the Chicken Outfit books for who gives a toot. These are rough, dirty and hopefully informative. I don’t like long-winded tutorials – I’d rather read the manual, so I’m going to try to give you the goods without too many distractions. Enjoy. Joe Deagnon N.B. Please […]
I used to draw wee thumbnails back in the beginning of Chicken Outfit #1. I’ve done it this way since the days of Paranoid Tales. As I progressed and involved with my work and started using computers instead of pens and pencils, I began writing scripts and blocking action very much like you would in […]
Is it all a dream? Reality or truth? Fact or fiction? Whole wheat or rye? You lucky Chickadees. You get to see what the “final” issue of Chicken Outfit Volume 1 is going to look like. (Well, half of it anyway – more on this later.) Below is the proposed cover art. The story of […]
There are a few things to clear up with issue #3 before we move on. I’ve already iterated to many readers why this fucker took so long, so I’m not going to rehash that here. There’s a very accurate “editorial” comic in the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers about how the readers are complaining about the […]
Okay, well, the proof has been approved. I’ve gone through the issue and corrected a few pages and panels due to their darkness. (No, not in a thematic sense.) When you work digitally on these things, since I’m not big on hundreds of calculations, one needs to be aware of, and compensate for, brightness, contrast, […]
