Heavy Metal Garage - Car CARtoon Series
The crazy car cartoons and caricatures of the late 60s always had that sense of fun and I combine the influences of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, Dave "BIG" Deal with a broader range of vehicles and add jokes and edutainment.
Ed Roth, or rather the work of Ed Newton was about rebellion, and had all the tire smoking blown cars driven by crazy monsters in the early days. They started the T-Shirt craze and also had decals, stickers and other merchandise. The monsters vanished in later years to be leave just the Rat Fink character. The cars were usually of the muscle car or hot rod variety.
Dave Deal had a gentler approach to caricaturing cars and usually had people in the scenes as well. He also included sports car CAN-AM, drag and off road racing and vehicles in his work. Even a Ferrari or two, along with the '32 Fords and '57 Chevys.
We hope we have developed and improved on all that has gone before, and have our own unique "something". Something for the old and young...
