I loved wrestling shows when I was a kid. I remember playing with my WWF Superstars Thumb Wrestlers and trying out moves with my friends when our parents weren’t watching. A couple of years ago I decided to revisit my love of the WWF, only to find that my childhood heroes had become racists, drug abusers, and all-around questionable individuals. Or they were just dead. Man, getting old sucks.
To salvage some of my nostalgia, I made a poster that placed Hulk Hogan on the cover of the premiere issue of Marvel Comics’ The Incredible Hulk. I moved on to other projects but always intended to come back and complete a limited series of wrestling mash-up posters. After delaying and delaying, I finally hunkered down and created five more posters to round out the series. The result? Rastlin’ Part 1.
Stay tuned for Rastlin’ Part 2… in a few years.
