A very special variant of my “Hawk and Chick: Monster Slayers” print is now available through Gallery 1988. This limited edition of 25 includes the signatures of Keisuke Hoashi and Suzy Nakamura, the voice actors of Hawk and Chick.
Keisuke and Suzy were so gracious to join in on this fun and I owe a huge debt of thanks to them both. The event couldn’t have happened without the efforts of fellow artist Eugene Kaik, who also created a wonderful Hawk and Chick variant the actors signed. Thanks also to Jensen Karp and Amber of Gallery 1988 and the folks at Bob’s Burgers for making it a reality.
